Amazing hidden gem in a secluded position with a delightful, west facing walled garden and an annexe.
The Cottage is an exceptional period house, with a superb west-facing garden, an outbuilding and a two-bedroom annexe.
The building was originally a coach house, dating from the late Georgian period, converted during the reign of Queen Victoria and subsequently improved, remodelled and extended throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
It is Grade II listed for historical and architectural interest and retains many enchanting and fascinating features, including exposed timbers, original chimneypieces and hooded windows, in the mock Tudor style popular in the late Victorian era.
The house has been a much loved family home for 40 years and now requires some modernisation, offering the perfect opportunity for the new owners to fashion a superb family home.
The useful Victorian porch leads through to a capacious reception hall, with parquet flooring and handsome chimneypiece; it flows through to the drawing room and dining room, and through to the kitchen.
The elegantly proportioned drawing room was added in the late 19th century, likely by the former owner, Admiral Charles Barstow Theobald; it has high ceilings, a marble chimneypiece and French bay windows leading out to the garden.
To the rear of the ground floor are the kitchen, utility room, breakfast room and lobby which provide useful service space and, subject to necessary consents, offer excellent space to remodel.
The first floor comprises five double bedrooms and two family bathrooms. The principal bedroom is
an especially fine room with an adjoining bathroom
The Cottage has delightful, walled, west-facing gardens, with verdant lawns, herbaceous borders and mature trees.
There are two useful garages and a workshop in an ancillary outbuilding, with a two-bedroom annexe on the first floor .
The Cottage is a fantastic, wonderfully secluded period house in one of the best positions in Woodbridge, one of my favorite towns in the county.Alexander McNabProperty agent
