    About this property

    • Nestled amongst other historical houses and midway between the medieval St. Bartholomew's Church and Orford Quay, Ruffles Cottage is a particularly pretty Georgian cottage with generous gardens and off-street parking.

      Believed to date from the 18th century and Grade II listed for historical and architectural interest, Ruffles Cottage has an attractive red brick façade, with timber framed windows and traditional clay tiles. Internally, the house retains a wealth of period features including exposed beams and studwork.

      The front door opens into the entrance hall, with doors leading to the sitting room and lavatory; stairs lead up to the bedroom accommodation.

      At the heart of the house is the wonderfully proportioned, open plan sitting/dining room, with a wood burning stove; the room is filled with natural light from a window to the front elevation and French windows out to the garden.

      Beyond the sitting room is the efficiently designed kitchen, with a range of base and wall-mounted units, oven, dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine. Windows look out over the garden and a door leads directly to the terrace.

      On the first floor are three well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom offers excellent views over Quay Street and a generous wardrobe, with all the rooms retaining superb period features.

      Ruffles Cottage has a delightful, principally lawned garden with an array of shrubs and flower borders. Immediately to the rear of the house is a terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, which looks over the main garden. A gate leads to a further lawn, dotted with trees, which ultimately leads to the parking area, with space for multiple cars and boats.

    I love this wonderfully pretty house. Ruffles Cottage is the quintessential Orford property: a beautiful, Georgian red brick building in an excellent location ideal for both the market square (and Pump Street Bakery) and the quay. There is a superb garden and - rare for Orford - ample parking.
