Dating back in part to the 16th Century and listed Grade II as being of specific architectural or historical interest, Oak Cottage is a fine example of timber framed vernacular architecture.
A wealth of original features including diamond mullion windows, high status close studwork together with inglenook fireplaces combine to provide a home of exceptional character.
Sympathetically renovated in recent years Oak Cottage has grounds extending to approximately 2.1 acres comprising beautiful gardens with swimming pool together with post and rail paddocks and stables.
There is a large garage with a workshop at the back and the property benefits from oil fired radiator heating.
It boasts a reception hall, dining room, kitchen, inner hall, cloakroom and rear lobby.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a bathroom.
Oak Cottage stands back from the road behind an area of garden laid partially to lawn with stocked flower and shrub borders. A driveway leads to the side of the property providing parking and leading to the detached garage with electric up and over door to front, power and light connected.
Abutting the rear of Oak Cottage a large paved terrace provides a sheltered alfresco dining area with steps leading up a lawned garden interspersed by mature apple trees.
Wide pathways lead to the top of the garden where there are terraced flower and shrub borders and a gateway gives access to the swimming pool.
The swimming pool is roman ended with steps leading up to a paved terrace/BBQ area.
To the back of the gardens are the paddocks with a twin stable block.
Oak Cottage occupies a quiet and peaceful setting on a small by-road between the popular villages of Pakenham and Ixworth, the latter of which provides an excellent range of everyday amenities including village stores, post office, restaurant, schools and historic village inns.
The cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds offers a comprehensive range of facilities.
Offers in excess of £495,000.
