This delightful thatched rural cottage in Hawstead has recently undergone a major refurbishment.

Bull Hill Cottage offers extremely flexible accommodation over two floors with bedrooms both upstairs and downstairs to suit all family needs.

The accommodation retains much of its original character throughout, including stripped pine doors with traditional wrought iron hinges and door furniture and an impressive arc-topped period oak front door.

The property’s spacious sitting room includes a large inglenook fireplace with brick cheeks, a bressumer beam, pamment-tiled hearth housing a wood-burring stove, exposed ceiling support beams and a triple aspect enjoying views over the garden and countryside.

The kitchen is divided into two areas, the first being the kitchen with cream painted shaker-style wall and base units and a cheeked alcove housing a two-oven, two-ring oil-fired AGA.

The second area is the breakfast/day room which features a breakfast bar and leads to an area with a vaulted ceiling and double aspect, bi-fold doors.

The master bedroom is a triple aspect room with French doors leading to the garden terrace and an en suite bathroom.

A family bathroom includes a large linen cupboard and matching white suite.

The house includes five bedrooms.

Outside the property is approached by a shared farm track leading to its own gravel drive with an electrically operated timber farm gate.

The from to the home allows ample parking and turning space in front of a large double garage/carport with log storage and workshop space.

The remainder of the front has been cleverly landscaped and enjoys views over the adjoining farmland

Paths to both sides lead round to the rear garden.

On the western side is a rose and clematis-covered pergola leading through a side garden with a pond water feature and brick path to a large lawned area with mature willow and mature boundary which offers a high degree of privacy.

Immediately to the rear of the property is a large raised terrace, perfect for outdoor entertaining.

Bull Hill Cottage is on the market with a guide price of £725,000.
