A thatched two-bedroom cottage filled with period features in a West Suffolk village has come on to the market through Musker McIntyre with a guide price of £185,000.

The property, in Duke Street, Stanton, is described by the agents as a ‘charming’ semi-detached cottage which would make ‘an ideal rural retreat’.

Duke Street is a single-track lane, but just a short distance from the centre of the village, which has a pub, village shop and takeaway.

The front door, which is located to the side of the property, opens into an inner hallway which offers access to the bathroom, kitchen and sitting room.

The family bathroom, which has been fitted with underfloor electric heating, features a modern white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower over, a counter-top wash hand basin and a low level WC. There are also storage cupboards and a further cupboard housing the hot water cylinder.

The kitchen has recently been refitted and offers an integrated dishwasher, an oven with halogen hob and extractor fan over, a kitchen waste system, one-and-a-half bowl stainless steel sink unit and space for a fridge/freezer.

The sitting/dining room is off the kitchen and provides a view to the front of the cottage.

This room, which measures 5m by 4.4m, features an inglenook fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel burner.

The stairs to the first floor are accessed from the sititng room.

Upstairs there is a landing with doorways to the two bedrooms which measure 4.8m by 2.6m and 3.7m by 2.5m.

Outside, a private driveway offers off-road parking for two vehicles and access to a detached single garage behind which lies the garden, which sits in a dog-leg position.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn and includes a clad woodstore and a garden studio which, say the agents offers ‘an ideal space for those working from home, hobbyists, or those just looking for extra storage space’.

The studio has been fitted with Upvc double-glazed windows, power and light and a wired internet connection from the house. A ‘picture frame’ window provides a vista over fields to the rear.

The Council Tax band (for St Edmuindsbury) is B.
