Property description

A three/four bedroom semi detached Victorian cottage which was formerly a pair of cottages. The property is situated in a rural location on the edge of the pretty and sought after Suffolk village of Blaxhall, within convenient reach of the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The property, which is available with no onward chain, has two reception rooms and four first floor bedrooms, one of which is a landing bedroom. There is a ground floor bathroom and a useful utility room. The kitchen opens into a rear porch/small conservatory. The property occupies a large and private rear garden which abuts open Suffolk countryside. The accommodation is heated by electric storage heaters. There are two fireplaces and the windows are uPVC double glazed units. The property benefits from views over surrounding farmland. Bramley cottage is tidily presented and has many period features. The cottage lies within walking distance of the village pub: The Ship, and is ideally located for access to Blaxhall Common and Tunstall Forest. Applicants might be interested in exploring the possibility of dividing the property and returning it to its former status as two dwellings. (Such a conversion would be subject to planning consent etc. And we, the vendor's agents have not approached the District Council.)

Blaxhall is a pretty rural village with a well documented social history which has been recorded in recent years by its own residents and published in an excellent book which features a number of photographs from the early 20th century including Corner Cottage. The village's rural history was celebrated by the writer and village resident George Ewart Evans who published a number of books in the 1960s and 1970s including: The Horse in the Furrow, The Farm and the Village and Ask the Fellows who cut the Hay. His interviews with local villagers in and around Blaxhall have provided us with an important historical record of life in rural Suffolk at the time of the Great War and during the last days of working horses on the land. This cottage is typical of the sort of property Evan's subjects lived in and the construction using materials often gleaned from the land is a reminder of just how hard rural life was for most people until the 1970s. Blaxhall has an excellent pub and is ideally located for access to Orford, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh and the neighbouring village of Snape. Snape Maltings is home to the Aldeburgh Festival. There are wonderful walks across Blaxhall Common and through Tunstall Forest with cycle routes through the village and on to Iken and Orford. The nearest railway station is just two villages away at Campsea Ashe where there is a connecting service to London, Cambridge and Norwich via Ipswich.
