A four-bedroom detached property close to Alton Water is up for sale at a guide price of £1.15 million. 

“Apple Cottage is one of a small number of properties making up Tattingstone Park which was converted from the original estate buildings in the 1970s,” said selling agent Jackson-Stops. 

The house is in a secluded setting adjacent to the impressive Tattingstone Place, which is close to Ipswich and Manningtree. 

On the ground floor of this newly refurbished property, which boasts 3,084 sq ft of accommodation, there’s a spacious reception hall, which leads to the drawing room and kitchen/living room/conservatory.
