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.
