Location This house is set back from the road in Yaxley with views to the rear over its attractive garden. In Yaxley there is a public house, church and village hall and in the neighbouring village of Mellis lies the village primary school rated Outstanding by Ofsted. It is convenient for the small town of Eye just a couple of miles to the east which has schooling to sixth form level at the highly regarded Hartismere High School again, rated Outstanding by Ofsted. The larger market town of Diss is just over the border into Norfolk around 4 miles away and provides a wider selection of facilities together with a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London taking around 90 minutes.
The Property Linden Lea is a wonderful family home set centrally within the village. The accommodation is spacious and naturally light and whilst the house has been altered and extended over the years, part of its history is apparent in the family room where there is attractive exposed studwork to one wall.
This is a house for family gatherings. The sitting room easily accommodates large comfy sofas and features a fireplace to one end with wood burning stove inset. The garden room is a room for all seasons and again can accommodate sofas and a large dining table, whilst the adjoining kitchen caters for cosy dinners in front of the small fireplace. The kitchen is fitted out in traditional pine fronted units which house day-to-day essentials and food storage is catered for in the walk-in pantry. The boot room/utility has space for large fridges and freezers as well as coats and boots.
The first floor offers five bedrooms, one served by a small en-suite cloakroom. There is a smart family bathroom with twin sinks, roll top bath, wc, bidet and shower cubicle and an additional ground floor bathroom offers flexibility.
Outside Linden Lea sits to the front of its plot and to the side lies a parking area for several vehicles and a clay lump outbuilding comprising two 3m x 3.2m store rooms and a log store. There is a large paved terrace which runs along the back of the house and the fenced gardens are animal proof and well stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs which attract wildlife and are a delight to behold in the warmer months. An additional shed lies to the northwest boundary.
