4 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

A home in the Country
The quintessentially English, picture perfect Three Feathers Cottage sits in the idyllic, peaceful and rural south Norfolk hamlet of Lundy Green surrounded by productive farmland and fields which are criss-crossed by river tributaries and offer delightful walks with ever-changing views throughout the year. A place, far away from the dusty race of town or city and yet, there is here a community of village dwellers allowing as much or little involvement in village life as one would wish.
At the end of Lundy Green, at the crossroad with Alburgh Road, Spring Lane and Silver Green, sits the welcoming Three Horseshoes Public House where you can be sure of a warm welcome being extended to you and your family and where food, real ale and local life can be enjoyed.
The Cottage
A delight to behold, Three Feathers Cottage offers a wide, easy to access frontage with shingle driveway and parking area providing access to the timbered, double cart-lodge with loft room, power and light. The gardens are open and beautifully landscaped with raised beds, neat lawns, seating area, mature flowering trees and shrubs all providing an oasis of calm from which to watch the world go by. A further five-bar gate provides access to a garden area immediately to the front of the studio or family room. There is also a further garden room.
The property is listed on Historic England's pages as Grade 11 and consists of a 17th or 18th century timber framed house, plastered with a pantile roof and gable ends. A long range of barns and stables adjoining the house have been incorporated into the house providing wonderfully spacious and versatile accommodation. The stables are thought to be of clay lump and may date from the early to mid-19th century whilst the barn is of painted flint with brick dressings.
A welcome home to all
Internally, Three Feathers Cottage is an excellent example of how a historic cottage and adjacent buildings can be re-imagined and re-invented for our demanding 21st century living and as such, provide a huge degree of versatility to suit many different needs and lifestyles. The property in its entirety, covers some 2,500 square feet approximately of accommodation and includes modern essentials such as four bath/shower rooms to serve the four bedrooms. The more recently converted ground floor rooms have the luxury of underfloor heating and all the heating is provided by an oil fired boiler.
As you enter the converted outbuildings you are greeted by a spacious hallway with a good sized cupboard and door to the ground floor shower room. Further doors lead, on the one side to the original cottage and to the other, into the large kitchen/dining room which in turn, leads seamlessly to the spacious family room/studio. Both the kitchen and the family room also benefit from external doors to the gardens. Finally, there is a door leading to the rear from the hallway.
You are welcomed to the original white-washed cottage by a pretty porch which leads you into the formal entrance hall. Turn to the right and you enter a bright double aspect room with original fireplace, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room.
Returning to the entrance hall, to the left of the front door is the formal sitting room, also double aspect with the original fireplace and chimney. Stairs lead from the chimney recess to the first floor. A lobby area provides access to the utility room and a play room or study area with a door to the rear.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a further family bathroom. A latched door leads from the principle bedroom to the second floor where there is a timbered eaves room running the entire length of the original cottage – divided by the chimney breast. There is restricted head height but the space would be ideal as a play area or hobbies space to name but a few.
Norfolk Life and Living
The small town of Long Stratton is just a few miles to the East and offers all the essentials for daily living such as a good selection of shops, post office, GP surgery, dentists, hairdressers, leisure centre, vets, library and much more, along with good road and public transport access to the County Town of Norwich to the north and Diss to the south. Norwich and Diss are renowned for their cultural and arts heritage along with plenty of sporting activities and so providing something for everyone.
The picturesque and historic Georgian town of Harleston and the larger town of Bungay with its Norman castle ruins sited on the edge of The Broads and at the neck of a meander of the River Waveney, offer a number of individual shops and businesses along with an excellent choice of cafes and restaurants. Here folklore and tales of the past abound, including the legend of Black Shuck the Hell Hound who attacked the congregation of St Mary's church in 1557 and haunted the coastline of Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.
There are primary schools in the nearby villages of Hempnall and Alburgh, both of which feed to Long Stratton High School.

Our Recommendation
This is a truly unique and rare opportunity to acquire a wonderfully characterful home in a delightful location and which provides the option to cater for many different life-style needs – indeed, it may even be possible to consider combining a comfortable home with a business opportunity such as an Air bnb given that the distinct wings of the property and separate entrances could potentially create separate and self-contained accommodation (subject to the necessary planning consents).
