Property Summary

Tucked away towards the end of an unmade track sits this detached Grade II Listed property now significantly extended to provide in excess of 2000 Sq Ft of living space. The heavily timbered property is believed to be of Medieval origins yet now offers many modern conveniences including underfloor heating.

Property Details

Harrison Edge sold Myrtle Cottage to the current owner back in 2016 when the property was occupied but verging on dereliction. Overgrown, hardly visible from the track and requiring serious investment this Grade II Listed cottage metamorphosed into the property we see today. Now forming an L'shape plan a sizeable extension having been added to the rear, the ground floor not only offers the renovated timbered front sections but also a tremendous kitchen and breakfast room arrangement. Further more, the extension incorpoated a utility and shower room along with a large master bedroom above. Three timbered spaces extend across the front of the building indicating two if not three earlier periods and now providing sitting room, dining room and study type space. Upstairs, two staircases serve three bedrooms, stylish bathroom with shower enclosure along with en suite cloakroom to a lovely vaulted bedroom with windows on three aspects. As one would expect, the renovations have incorporated wiring , plumbing heating (to include underfloor heating throughout the ground floor) along with joinery and plastering etc. New bespoke windows were made to replace the old. Outside, the now cleared grounds serve as garden space within picket fencing on all four sides with the approach across a footbridge leading from the parking area and double garage area to the very front.

Having turned off the Eye/Hoxne road to South Green, the tarmac road peters out and with forks to two neighbouring farms the track to Myrtle Cottage carries on passing one neighbour.. The track continues past part of the farm onto Myrtle Cottage before carrying on to one further property beyond. This may be of interest to those wanting to be rural and hidden away but not totally isolated and away from civilisation. It is worth noting hard wired fibre Broadband is connected to the property putting to shame many village and town settings.
