General information A delightful Grade II listed farmhouse with 2 holiday let cottages set in beautiful established grounds of about 2 acres backing onto woodland.
The property enjoys a wonderful setting along a quiet country lane on the rural edge of sought-after Waldringfield and close to the River Deben.
Thatched Farm is a delightful Grade II listed former farmhouse of timber frame construction under a thatched and tiled roof. Originally 2 cottages, the property now provides a charming home of great character with period features including exposed timbers, fireplaces and pretty windows. The internal layout is flexible and currently incorporates a bed and breakfast suite within the main house which is accessed via the main reception hall; this comprises a bedroom, utility area and shower room but alternatively the ground floor bedroom could provide a study. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room connect via an inner hallway with open studwork providing ideal space for both family living and entertaining. There is also a well designed shaker-style kitchen with integral Bosch appliances.
On the first floor there is a charming master bedroom with an ensuite shower room and walk-in wardrobe, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The attic space is sometimes used as an overflow bedroom for grandchildren and also provides good storage.
Further accommodation is provided by the 2 holiday let cottages which the current owners sympathetically converted out of former traditional outbuildings. These are situated to the rear of the main house and generate useful income.
We understand they are very popular with return visitors and that Daffodil Cottage rents out for £495 per week and Bluebell Cottage rents for £415 per week in high season (June-August). Daffodil Cottage comprises a vaulted hallway, sitting room, kitchen, galleried double bedroom and an additional mezzanine single bedroom. Bluebell Cottage has an open plan sitting room/kitchen through to the double bedroom as well as a shower room.
The outside The grounds of about 2 acres (sts) form a further important feature. Reached from the quiet country lane, gates open onto the gravelled driveway leading to a parking area to the side of the house. There are a number of traditional outbuildings providing plenty of garden and machinery storage and there is also a former studio/potential home office immediately to the rear of the main house which is currently used as a laundry room but has good potential for those who work from home.
As the driveway meanders towards the house, there is an expanse of lawn to the side which incorporates mature trees including willow trees and a stream that attracts wildlife and ducks. There is a further wide expanse of lawn to the west of the house as well as a south facing front garden which sets the house well back from the lane and incorporates well stocked flower beds. The whole extent of the grounds back onto woodland which provide a carpet of snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells.
Where? Waldringfield is a delightful rural village with a picturesque riverside location on the River Deben, the village has a primary school, church and the ever popular Maybush Inn which overlooks the river. There is a vibrant sailing club and Waldringfield is well placed for access to Woodbridge which is a popular market town close by as well as Ipswich which has a mainline station offering links to London Liverpool Street.
