Tollbridge Cottage is an attractive property with river and woodland frontage.
The present cottage is believed to date from the 1930s and was originally part of an old watermill complex that was involved in the milling of cottons.
It was one of Norfolk/Suffolk’s last remaining tollgate houses, where charges were made for vehicles and livestock to pass over the Waveney. It remained the Toll house until the 1960s
Together with adjoining buildings it was further upgraded in the 1990s, as part of a unique riverside development and hence retains many characterful original features as well as being relaxing.
The cottage has two reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, garden room and downstairs shower room whilst the first floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom.
Outside the cottage has a private courtyard garden, which runs into a riverside graveled area which is leased from the environment agency.
Residents also have exclusive use of a private wooded island with waterside jetty, for accessing the river. An area of tranquility, ideal for walking, boating or fishing or general mindfulness. It includes a convenient residents only private parking area.
When investing in property, location is one of the most important factors and Tollbridge Cottage offers a delightful position combining the tranquility of a waterside location with a sense of community.
The cottage is a perfect haven and could be a fabulous holiday home as well as a permanent residence.
We offer the cottage in excellent condition with many original features including Sash windows, deep pine skirting’s, doors and fireplaces. Throughout is Oil fired heating and there is no onward chain-perfect!
