About the property

DESCRIPTION Originally built in the late C16th/C17th with a more modern extension, this Grade II Listed, semi-detached cottage has been through a schedule of refurbishment by the current owners to provide excellent and light living accommodation, contrasted against period features including exposed beams in the master bedroom and the sitting room. The sitting area also includes a substantial fireplace with open fire and hatch to the cellar below. The garden is east facing with a southerly aspect and gives access to the modern, large garage which benefits from an electricity connection. In front of the garage is a parking space which is accessed from Market Hill via Mallets Lane. The lane is narrow and requires a level of caution when negotiating.

LOCATION Situated on Market Hill, the centre of the popular fishing village, the cottage is within the Conservation Area and benefits from easy access to all Orford has to offer. Nearby are popular eating establishments including the Butley Oysterage and the Crown & Castle Hotel, the famous Pump Street Bakery and café and furthermore there are two public houses, a small village shop and a regular market within the village hall. Orford is renowned for the quality of sailing on the rivers Alde and Ore, the Orfordness National Trust Nature Reserve and the 12th Century Castle. The village is within Suffolk’s Heritage Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, recognised for its open undulating countryside, woodlands, rivers and coastline, popular with walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers alike.
