    About this property

    • Occupying the most remarkable position, with fine views over the River Deben, Kyson Cottage is an attractive period house with superb, mature gardens.

      Dating from 1936, Kyson Cottage is a particularly handsome house, principally constructed of mellow red bricks, under a traditional pan tile roof.

      Internally, the accommodation flows exceptionally well, comprising wonderfully proportioned and light filled rooms. The glazed front door opens into a reception hall, which leads to the drawing room, kitchen/dining room, utility/laundry room and downstairs lavatory.

      The impressive triple aspect drawing room offers magnificent views over the garden and river, a wood burning stove, a cinema system and French windows out to a south facing terrace.

      The bespoke double aspect kitchen consists of hand built wooden cabinetry and worksurfaces, a Falcon range with an induction hob and integrated appliances including a Bosch fridge/freezer.

      A first floor landing leads to three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms offer superb garden and river views; two also benefit from adjoining shower rooms.

      Kyson Cottage sits within beautiful, principally lawned and gently undulating grounds of about 0.83 of an acre. Bordered by woods, this wonderfully tranquil and private garden has an array of mature trees, two terraces - ideal for al fresco dining - and shrub borders. There is a useful studio/workshop and store, and parking for numerous cars along a shingle drive. Adjoining National Trust parkland and footpaths lead directly to Woodbridge.

      Planning Permission
      Kyson Cottage benefits from planning permission for a substantial two-storey extension and cellar. For further details, please speak with the agent or consult the East Suffolk council website, reference: C/10/0096.
