DESCRIPTION A truly stunning Grade II Listed cottage which has been the subject of very extensive and imaginative renovation by the current owners. The result is a beautiful home, providing spacious modern living spaces that in no way compromise the period character of the property. The work has been carried out using a local architect and artisan builders to an exceptionally high standard and with real attention to detail. Internally the cottage is a delight and the outside space is equally appealing. In addition to a large private courtyard, there is a detached garage, private parking for at least two vehicles and beyond this a wonderful cottage garden extending to some 200ft. Such properties rarely come to market and early viewing is essential.
LOCATION Orford benefits from a well-stocked village shop with sub-post office, an internationally-famous bakery, hotel and pub. Also within Orford is the village hall which provides a regular marketplace for fresh produce and newspapers, and a doctor’s surgery. Orford still retains its primary school, which is located between the fire station and the recreation ground which includes two members tennis courts. There is an active sailing club within the village and local, traditional fisherman still bring in fish to the village where it is readily available to buy.
