3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Found within a small, idyllic country lane, the property enjoys a rural tucked-away position enjoying 360° views over the surrounding rural countryside. The attractive village of Thelnetham has proved over the years to be a popular and sought-after location, lying in unspoilt rural countryside along the north Suffolk border, and offering a beautiful array of many period and attractive properties, whilst having the benefit of a village church and public house. The historic market town of Diss is within close proximity, being seven miles to the east and featuring an extensive and diverse range of many day-to-day amenities and facilities, including a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich.
The property, a three-bedroom detached cottage - its third bedroom is currently used as a study - is thought to date back to the 1700s. Of oak-frame construction with colour-wash rendered walls under a thatched roof, it is heated by an oil-fired central heating system installed by the current vendors during their time of occupancy. Throughout, the property has been well maintained and enhanced by the vendors. As one would expect to find, there is a wealth of exposed and revealed period features
The property, set back on a small country lane, faces attractive open farmland at its front, whilst to the rear there are views across undulating countryside, including meadows. The grounds - almost 0.5 acre (sts) in total - have been thoughtfully planted with fruit trees and bushes over the years, which regularly provide good crops. There is the benefit of a single garage, plus stabling (two loose boxes and a tack room). Formal gardens surround the cottage, while the main gardens - separated by the garage and stabling - open onto a larger area, with established fruit trees found towards the rear boundaries.
The current vendors rent the fields to the rear and side of the property (approx. 7 acres) which may be able to be utilised by potential purchasers.
