Overlooking greenspace and hidden from the road, this wonderful cottage is located at the end of a run of similar properties set in the idyllic Shotley Peninsula village of Freston. Retaining charm and character from the era, this two-bedroom property will make someone a wonderful new home or perhaps a holiday getaway for those looking to have a hub near the river. The cottage and its immediate neighbours are surrounded by countryside, fields, and the Orwell River to the North East, and just a short stroll from the nearby Freston Boot Public house - Offered with no onward chain.


No.6 Hillside Cottages accommodation commences with an entrance porch to front, whilst the vendor themselves utilises the rear entry on a day-to-day basis. Leading from the porch with its windows to three sides, a doorway takes you through to the sitting room. Here, a sizable window to front overlooks the gardens, whilst to one side a red brick fireplace stands proud with inset log burner and a doorway to the kitchen/breakfast room. There are matching wall and base units providing ample storage and space enough for a breakfast table and chairs. Plumbing is in situ for a dishwasher, with an electric cooker and hob, stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap and window into the rear courtyard. The kitchen breakfast room has a doorway to the rear lobby and open wooden staircase to the first floor. Continuing downstairs a cupboard in the rear lobby houses the water tank and plumbing for the washing machine, with a door into the garden. Lastly, the bathroom is positioned to the rear with window, panel enclosed bath with shower over, wash hand basin and WC.

The first floor offers two double bedrooms to front and rear, with the rear bedroom having an over stair cupboard for storage. Bedroom one also enjoys the exposed chimney breast from the sitting room and the window offers a wonderful view across both yours and the neighbouring gardens to front. Further views continue across the surrounding tree line and we have been advised that at the right time of year, the river can be observed also.
