Location Meadowside stands in a desirable position set back from this quiet village street to one end of the village and is hidden from view behind well established trees in a mature garden. Oakley is a lovely village with many period properties which has seen little alteration over the years and is in a rural setting yet is only 3 miles or so from the small town of Eye and around 5 miles from the larger market town of Diss, which has a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. There are good sporting and social facilities in the area, with Diss having an 18 hole golf course, and the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Aldeburgh being within 40 minutes or so by car.
The Property As is always the case, location is the most important factor when buying a property and Meadowside occupies both an idyllic setting and a generous plot size. This charming period home was originally built of timber frame and features later brick elevations and extensions, thought to be added around 40 years ago. Surprisingly, the property is not Listed and therefore provides plenty of scope for those looking for a project. Given the age and current condition of the property, it would now benefit from a sensitive scheme of refurbishment and there is ample scope to further extend to create a spacious and comfortable family home.
Outside Meadowside is approached from the road through a pair of wrought iron gates that open onto a driveway which leads up to a double garage to rear of the cottage. The property is set centrally within its plot of 0.59 acres (0.239ha) and is laid mainly to lawn with hedged boundaries. Within the rear garden lies an extensive orchard.
Services Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected to the property. Oil fired central heating. Please note that the services/appliances/central heating and heating system/plumbing and electrical installations have not been tested by the selling agents and the purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition and warranty of these items.
