The Property
Entering the property via the side entrance we are welcomed by a generous lobby which doubles as a utility area. The finish and attention to detail that follows throughout the house is instantly apparent from the careful choice of tiles under foot to the exacting carpentry displayed by the built in units and storage cupboards. A door opens to the main house and as we pass the ground floor cloakroom the lobby opens to the fantastic garden/family room. Perfectly positioned to enjoy a view of the entire garden, the river and Waveney Valley; this exceptional room is the perfect space for family living and entertaining alike, french doors open to the patio area. At the head of the lobby, a door opens to the additional guest/annexe accommodation, a more recent addition, this superb space boasts a large double bedroom and cosy sitting room which both look onto the grounds and enjoy a more private patio area that leads from the french doors in the sitting room. A stunning bathroom completes the guest area with a separate bath and double width shower set against most attractive tiled flooring and walls, a wash basin is set in a vanity unit adjacent to the w/c. Heading into the main house via the kitchen dining room we find a perfect blend of modern finishing coupled with the charm of the cottage that once was. The kitchen provides a superb 'hub' to the home with informal dining and seating areas. Exposed timbers and brick work contrast against a range of modern kitchen units which are complemented with polished quartz work surfaces. Our sink is set below a window looking onto the garden whilst a intergrated dishwasher and space for a large fridge freezer are found. To the front we find our two main reception rooms, a large sitting room leads from the kitchen where we find an imposing brick inglenook fireplace and the original stairs leading to the first floor, adjacent we access the study/library where the original front door opens from the street and windows look over the steel bridge at the foot of road. A large vestibule is found at the rear linking the accommodation and providing a modern staircase case rising to the large first floor landing. From this impressive landing area we enjoy a view of the river and access two bedrooms and the main bathroom. Both rooms offer generous double bedroom space and enjoy fitted storage whilst the bathroom echoes the superb finish found throughout. The bathroom again offers separate shower, a claw foot bath and a sink and w/c. Completing the accommodation we access the second floor via the original staircase. A stunning beam lined room offers a superb double bedroom space which boasts a second area ideally suited to be a dressing room where we also access the shower room.

Outside
Gated access from Bridge Street opens to this exceptional 0.5 Acre (stms) plot, the shingled drive winds past the house to do a full circular loop allowing for comfortable parking and turning for a number of vehicles. The drive continues to the foot of this impressive plot where a charming oak fronted double cart lodge offers covered parking and storage. Established flower beds disguise the drive in every direction filling the space with colour and scent, two attractive patio areas lead from both the garden/family room and the annexe/guest area offering the ability for privacy for all occupants. Looking over the extensive gardens we are drawn to the sight and gentle sound of the river which frames the boundary offering an exceptional river frontage. Stepping across the lawns we pass a variety of kitchen gardens and attractive working areas before reaching the large timber summer house. Perfectly situated to enjoy the views a timber deck leads to the river bank. The river bank offers the ability for a small paddle boat to moor and is ideal for those looking to explore or simply sit and enjoy the river. As we wander the bank returning to the front of the plot we find a fascinating World War II Pillbox adding an additional piece of history to this fabulous site.
