Oak and Bell Cottages, on The Street Bramford are arguably the most prominent and important listed building in Bramford is located close to the village centre.
Although registered as one property, this substantial house is currently divided into two dwellings, with the entire northern 'wing' being essentially self-contained,
Bell Cottage comprises a front sitting room, rear kitchen, landing and two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The central and southern end is partitioned by a modern stud wall in the central living room, which could be easily removed to reinstate the house as one large dwelling.
The remaining accommodation is extensive, with a further kitchen / dining room, rear hall, shower room, landing and four to five further bedrooms and a bathroom.
A driveway to the north leads through to the rear of the property (east) which consists of cottage gardens.
A substantial outbuilding/former washhouse is set immediately to the rear of the house which provides useful storage space and has power connected.
The mature gardens cover on third of an acre.
It should be noted that the vendors have submitted a pre-application to Babergh District Council to ascertain support for planning and listed building consent to relocate the outbuilding to a more favourable location within the garden.
