This house has a magical location down a half mile sandy lane on the edge of Thorpeness in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty. Around about you is stunning open Suffolk heathland and woodland, full of enticing walks and wonderful vistas. 1 Shellpit Cottages was part of the Ogilvie Estate, built in the 1870s by Margaret Ogilvie to provide a healthy environment for children displaced from Ipswich. It has high ceilings and original joinery, mixed with contemporary bright colours and an eclectic mix of old and new furniture. The house is owned by artists and has charismatic interiors and a relaxed atmosphere.
On the ground floor there’s a large open plan living space with areas for relaxing, cooking and eating with a wood-burning stove in the centre of the room; a bathroom and a shower room that doubles up as a utility room. Upstairs are three bedrooms (two double bedrooms, and 1 twin bedroom) and outside there’s a lawned garden next to an acre of shared lawn with trees and heathland beyond.
