3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
Being well positioned towards the top of the hill in Botesdale (adjoining Rickinghall) the property enjoys a tranquil situation set back from the road having a pleasing outlook towards similar character properties. The villages were bypassed a number of years ago and are now arguably one of the most attractive and sought after villages in the area, offering a beautiful assortment of many period and historic properties along the high street whilst still retaining an excellent range of local facilities including a medical centre, supermarket, public houses and good transport links. The market town of Diss lies only seven miles to the east of the village where further amenities and facilities can be found, including a mainline railway station connecting to London Liverpool Street and Norwich.
The property is one of six and takes its name (Simonds) from the family owned former coach company which was on site for several generations. Comprising of a three bedroom end-of-terrace Grade II listed village house that was professionally restored approximately 20 years ago by much respected Anglia Homes. During the refurbishment programme great care was undertaken to retain as much of the 400 year old history with the property as possible, yet to still incorporate modern and contemporary living. Since the conversion the property has been well maintained and cared for and is still very much in an excellent condition.
The property is approached via a shingle driveway with a private courtyard 'like' setting, having the benefit of two off-road parking spaces to the front aspect. A picket fence encloses the front gardens which have been thoughtfully planted and now well stocked, still being of relatively low maintenance and leading up to the front door. To the rear aspect the gardens are of a decent size greatly enjoying a south westerly aspect, whilst having a good deal of privacy, being enclosed by panelling fencing. A paved patio area abuts the rear of the property creating space for alfresco dining and adjacent to side gate giving access to the side of the property.
