Ash Tree Cottage originally dates from the early 20th century but has been much improved in recent years. It is built of white rendered red brick with a hipped, red-tiled roof.
It occupies a prime location in the conservation village of Keyston, in an elevated position on the village Loop Road, with paddock land to two sides and far reaching open views over the Church, village and wider countryside. The terraces and garden have a south and west aspect.
Canopy porch leading to entrance hall with quarry tiled floor leading to the staircase and with oak doors to cloakroom and to the lounge.
The lounge is a beautifully light, triple-aspect room with an oak floor, a wood burner and two windows overlooking paddock and the Church. French doors opening onto the rear garden and terrace.
Through an oak door from the lounge is a large kitchen/dining room with oak floor. French doors to the terrace and garden. There is a granite-topped island unit with inset sink as well as range of cabinets with oak doors and hardwood work surfaces, and a second Butler sink and a Lacanche cooker.
There is ample space for a large dining table and other furniture.
A utility/boiler room is off the kitchen as well as a versatile snug, which is currently used as a TV and music room, but could be a playroom or study having an open archway to the kitchen.

Gardens, Grounds and Outbuildings
A particular feature of Ash Tree Cottage is the fabulous outdoor environment, divided principally into entertaining space, formal gardens and a vegetable garden.
There is a long gravelled driveway with ample room for several cars leading to a large single garage with side door to the garden.
Side gates lead through to the rear of the property which is private from the road and other properties, but with wide views given its elevation and paddock land to the side and rear. There is a large south and west facing sandstone and gravel terrace with brick retaining walls, and a Cretan pithoi water feature. Terracing leads to the painted summerhouse which could be used as an outdoor office. A formal lawn is surrounded by well stocked flower beds. There are two large pine trees as well as birches and flowering trees. Separated from the formal garden by a hurdle screen is a vegetable and fruit garden with raised beds, a cedar greenhouse and garden shed.
Klargester style septic tank drainage. Anglia Water are currently undertaking works to provide the opportunity for mains drainage which would be a chargeable connection/service.
