About this property

DESCRIPTION Adelaide Cottage is a wonderfully charming, attached property set in a lovely position in the heart of Saxlingham Nethergate. The cottage enjoys a great deal of character throughout having been transformed by the current owners who have taken great care during their 15-year custodianship to create a comfortable family home with accommodation on two floors with a particular feature being the inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.

There is a lovely feel about the house as you approach via a shingled driveway which leads up to the side with the view of the thatched roof and clay lump elevations, so prevalent of a house of this era.

The entrance to Adelaide Cottage is either into the main sitting room or via the kitchen where there is space to dine as well as entertain with a delightful range of exposed beams and integrated appliances. A key feature to the kitchen is the back staircase which flows up to a small landing area providing access to a wc and the principal bedroom.

The sitting room is a characterful space with its exposed beams, exposed brickwork, and an inglenook fireplace. The latter was rebuilt by the current owners who also installed a wood burner as part of the project. Off the sitting room, an inner hallway leads through to the staircase and family bathroom. This incredible component to the house is beautifully arranged with traditional fittings comprising a walk-in shower, roll top bath, sink, and wash basin.

On the first floor the staircase leads up into the study/landing with access to bedroom two and bedroom three. Bedroom two leads through to the principal bedroom which can also be accessed via the back staircase, as aforementioned. All the bedrooms enjoy a lovely range of exposed beams, typical of the period. A small window in the principal bedroom is rather delightful and retaining these special details has always been at the forefront of the owners' minds when adapting Adelaide Cottage.

To the outside the property enjoys a shingled driveway accessed off the main road which leads up to a gate and into the main garden area. The south facing gardens are mostly laid to lawn and flow down towards the rear boundary, all enclosed by mature hedging and panel fencing. There is a super terrace off the kitchen area bordered by sleepers providing an excellent space to entertain. Adelaide Cottage benefits from both a bike store and garden shed, both remaining with the property.

Plans have been drawn up for an extension at the side of the house, and more details of this together with measurements can be found through the selling agent.
