Property Description

The Thatched Cottage is an incredibly welcoming five-bedroom home that occupies a central yet private coastal location, with the sandy dunes and stony beach only a short walk away.

The cottage has been within the same family ownership for generations. The internal accommodation is quite extensive and extends to approximately 1250sq.ft split over two floors - quite rare for a period cottage in this locality.

Entering via the front door, a storm-porch provides a useful recessed entrance before a door which opens into the entrance hall. Immediately to the left of the hall is a ground floor bathroom, with separate wc. To the right of the hallway is the kitchen. This country kitchen comprises handmade units and solid oak worktops; with ample appliance space and built in storage. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area with door to the rear garden and stairs which rise to first floor level. Leading on from the dining room is a charming dual aspect sitting room with exposed beams, brick flooring and an inset wood-burning stove. A doorway at the rear of the room opens into a small hallway, which connects to a ground floor double bedroom with adjoining shower room. This area of the house is perfect for an annexe or studio - being partially separated from the main house.

Upstairs, the four remaining bedrooms are all generously proportioned. The largest bedroom is of particular note with exposed beams and a stunning vaulted ceiling with large dormer window overlooking the rear cottage garden. There are three additional bedrooms on the first floor, all individually accessed off the main landing space and a shower room. The distant sea views from the rear twin bedroom are particularly lovely.

The property is approached from The Street via a five bar gate which gives access to a gravel off-road parking area providing parking for several vehicles. From here the gardens open out to form an extensive lawn area surrounded by mature flower beds, herbaceous borders and hedging on all sides. The garden is very private and benefits from being south facing. Of particular note is a patio area to the rear of the garden, complete with bespoke circular seating, curved around a central firepit. The property also benefits from a studio/garage/workshop.

Walberswick is the quintessential Suffolk Village situated on the heritage coast. This delightful coastal village is a popular holiday destination for those who wish to experience Walberswick's unspoiled dunes, its beach and its charm. You will find tea rooms, restaurants, two public houses, an art gallery, village shop, original crafts and gift shops.
