A cultural cottage

Cottage orné complete with its own former chapel for sale in a cultural haunt made famous by Benjamin Britten and Sir Peter Pears

 

In the late 18th and early 19th century, the Romantic movement sought to move away from the formality of the neo-classical and baroque styles to a more ‘natural’ way of living in terms of their architectural styles. As a consequence what became known as ‘cottage orné’ – or rustic, decorated cottages – became popular and now one is currently for sale at Snape Maltings in Suffolk with a guide price of £1.5 million ($2.3 million or €2.1 million) through agents Bedfords.

Snape Maltings, the home of the Aldeburgh Music Festival made famous by Benjamin Britten and Sir Peter Pears since 1948, is an arts complex on the banks of the River Alde. It was originally built by Newson Garrett in the 1800s to malt barley for the brewing of beer and is now the site of an 832-seat concert hall, music studios, as well as shops, restaurants and arts galleries.
