A recently restored semi-detached cottage has come up for sale in the Suffolk village of Newton.

The Victorian-era property is Grade II listed and for sale with David Burr at a guide price of £450,000. It is believed to have once been part of a bigger farmhouse, which was converted into two cottage in the 1960s.

Since then it has been further modernised and the current owners have lovingly restored the three-bedroom property to create a charming family home, with living accommodation extending to around 1,535 sq ft. It offers beautiful period features, including oak flooring and doors, timber-framed casement windows and shutters and impressive nine-foot ceiling heights.

The property has been extended to create a single-storey dining room and the large kitchen/breakfast room has been completed in a cottage-style, with wooden-fronted units, work surfaces and exposed beams and studwork. It also has an oak-topped central island, which is fitted with a ceramic sink and doubles as a breakfast bar, and a three-door electric rangemaster with five-ring hob is also included.
