General information

General information Creek Cottage is located in Broomheath, a premier residential area on the outskirts of Woodbridge, being set in grounds of approximately one acre with wonderful views over Martlesham Creek to the southern side and the River Deben from the north.

Creek Cottage was built in 1956 by a director of the leading building firm in the town at the time, F Ingram Smith Ltd, for his own occupation. It has mellow red brick elevations beneath a pantile roof and provides sensibly planned accommodation which would be equally suitable as a permanent or holiday home.

The oak front door, flanked by leaded lights, opens into the entrance hall with oak panelling, architrave skirting and oak faced doors giving access into the sitting room. A leaded light window on the front elevation provides views to the River Deben and Woodbridge town, with a wide bay window and double doors to the rear giving access into the garden with panoramic views of Martlesham Creek.

There is a cloakroom with space to add a shower, if required, and a kitchen which again takes full advantage of the view of Martlesham Creek and the fields beyond from its wide window. There is a built-in pantry beneath the stairs and a door gives access into the utility room which benefits from a butlers sink to one corner and a stable door out to the garden. There is access to the double garage which is attached to the property, as well as two useful store cupboards.

The accommodation on the first floor, which is approached by a panelled oak staircase, leads to a galleried landing providing access to all bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two large bedrooms take advantage of the southerly views over Martlesham Creek, with bedroom three being to the front of the property with windows to two aspects, enjoying views over the River Deben with the town in the distance.

In addition to the double garage is a loft area which could potentially be developed, if required.

The outside The approach to the property is via an 'in' and 'out' gravel drive with a crescent shape lawn behind, interspersed with trees and shrubs. The main area of garden is on the southern side with a paved and gravelled terrace spanning the width of the property. A lawn leads off and slopes away in the direction of Martlesham Creek, with mature trees on the flank boundaries. There is a somewhat dilapidated greenhouse built on a brick plinth attached to the rear of the property with a flight of wooden steps alongside leading up to a platform with a door into the loft storage area.

A section of the garage building is set to one side of the house with a five bar gate linking the front and rear gardens.

Where? Broomheath is on the western outskirts of Woodbridge, a delightful market town sited on the west bank of the River Deben. The town offers exceptional facilities for its size and can be reached on foot via Broomheath and the footpath which skirts the riverbank.

Woodbridge has an array of independent outlets trading alongside the national names, a variety of restaurants, two hotels, as well as highly regarded schools for students of all ages in both the state and independent sectors. There is also a swimming pool, cinema and medical facilities.

The proximity of the coast at Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, and further north at Southwold, is an attraction of the location and within the surrounding countryside, there are many attractive walks and drives with a number of clubs catering for a variety of sporting interests.
