Take a look around this striking four bedroom home near Ipswich with stunning views of the River Orwell.
Situated in the small village of Woolverstone, the Grade II-listed riverside home is a fine example of a Georgian house in the gothic revival style.
The home, which was described in Nicholas Pevsner's The Buildings of England series as a Gothick Cottage of 1973, gets its name - The Cat House - after a former owner, who was sympathetic to smugglers and would place a stuffed cat in the window to warn against patrolling coast guards.
The property boasts period features throughout including an embattled north gable and gothic arch windows.
The large bespoke kitchen in the home which was hand built by Orwells Furniture, has a three-oven AGA and granite work surfaces with an island to provide a great space for the preparation of meals.
The kitchen leads through to the conservatory, which benefits from French windows leading out onto the garden.
Double doors lead from the elegantly-proportioned dining room onto the triple aspect sitting room, with an inglenook fireplace with an inset multi-fuel burning stove.

The principal bedroom is especially charming with its own dressing room and en-suite shower room.
There is an attractive and spacious double garage, with lighting and electric; above which is a studio.
Savills, which is marketing the home, described The Cat House as an "exceptional river front property".
Property agent Alexander McNab said: "The Cat House is an incredibly special house in an amazing setting overlooking the River Orwell."
