The property also benefits from off-road parking and detached garage.

Situated in the sought-after, rural Suffolk village of Higham, this Grade II listed cottage offers outstanding, single storey living in a delightful location. This 16th century, thatched cottage is rich in original features and charm whilst offering easy 21st century living. Once inside, the sitting room - with dual aspect and vaulted ceiling - offers a charismatic room in which to relax and / or entertain, with an inset wood burner in the inglenook fireplace offering warmth and ambience during the cooler months. There is open stud work to a secondary reception room, which had previously been a bedroom but opened up by the current vendor. As such, this room could easily be enclosed once again. The kitchen / breakfast / dining room is located towards the rear, more modern part of the property, overlooking the garden. The kitchen itself is presented in ivory Shaker style, with plenty of room for food preparation. The sunny principal bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and vaulted ceiling - with pretty views over the terrace, to the garden. A bathroom completes the accommodation. Outside, the south-east facing garden commences with a sun terrace, which leads to lush lawn and full, shrub borders. To one side of the garden, in a slightly raised position, a heated swimming pool - with cover - offers summertime delight for the whole family.
