About this property
DESCRIPTION Puddleduck Cottage is a delightful attached four-bedroom family home positioned on the edge of the most sought-after village of Hedenham. The property has been subject to significant renovation and improvements since ownership began in 2014 including a notable extension in 2022, almost doubling the size of the original 17th Century cottage.
The current owners sympathetically retained the character of the cottage as they carried out their improvements unveiling a wonderful fireplace and original exposed beams. Although the cottage is very modern there is a wonderful charm throughout and any buyer will no doubt enjoy the excellent range of modern fittings which have been installed.
Puddleduck Cottage is approached to the front into the porch which provides access into the central reception hall/dining room. Off the dining room is the wonderful triple aspect sitting room with log burner and access is enjoyed into a study, and out to the gardens and grounds. The kitchen breakfast room is also off the dining room and benefits from another attractive log burner, and there are a very good range of integrated appliances. Further ground floor rooms include a utility room, shower room and cloakroom.
There are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed off the main landing area. The landing area itself benefits from three velux windows providing natural light. The principal bedroom enjoys an en-suite bath/shower room. All views enjoy charming views over the front and side of the property and distant countryside.
Puddleduck Cottage is approached from the road via a five-bar gated entrance into a shingled parking and turning area with parking offered for several vehicles. A path leads through the front gardens which are mainly laid to lawn and enjoy a kitchen garden area and greenhouse. The gardens flow around to the rear of the property where there is a very pleasant terrace ideal for dining and a further laid to lawn garden.
There is room for a double bay cart lodge subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming.
Improvements include a new heating system (part underfloor heating), full rewiring, new windows and doors, new kitchen and bathroom equipment and general redecoration throughout. The property is offered in wonderful order throughout and will be of great interest to buyers keen to acquire a characterful home with modern fittings.
