3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

Set back from the road upon a pleasing individual position, the property is situated towards the south of the village. This pretty and unspoilt village was bypassed a number of years ago and still retains the benefit of a fine church and community hall.  The adjoining village of Mellis also has the benefit of a public house and outstanding Ofsted rated schooling, (the agent further advises the property is within the Hartismere school catchment area). The historic market town of Diss is found within easy reach lying some six miles to the north and offers an extensive and diverse range of many day to day amenities and facilities along with the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich.

The property is a period cottage believed to date back to the 1800s, with some additions in the 1960s. It requires modernisation but has great potential due to its versatile accommodation of approximately 1,350 sq ft. The first floor features three well-proportioned bedrooms, a large family bathroom and ample storage. The three reception rooms at ground floor level are spacious, offering flexible living space, alongside the kitchen/diner and ground floor WC.

The total plot size is around 0.45 acres (sts). Outline planning permission has been granted for a detached dwelling on the northern boundaries by Mid Suffolk County Council under reference Ref DC/23/00011, dated December 21, 2022.

This exceptional opportunity not only encompasses the potential to refurbish and modernise a characterful period cottage but also offers an excellent opportunity for new construction, adding significant value to the property. With the current planning permission, the property offers excellent potential for development, dual living, rental investment or resale.
