Location Rosemount is close to the heart of the town with views across to the Mere (a natural lake). The wide range of facilities that Diss has to offer are within walking distance and include local and national shops, good social and sporting facilities, modern health centre and schooling to sixth form level. Additionally, Diss has the benefit of the mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. The town is well located with the fine old town of Bury St Edmunds around 18 miles away, Thetford 17 miles, Norwich and Ipswich both around 25 miles.

The Property This chalet style house offers much in the way of flexible accommodation and the layout can easily provide for an integral annexe if required, thanks to a ground floor bathroom, a large utility room/kitchen, a snug and a study which can serve equally well as a bedroom. The layout is a little unusual, partly due to the fact that the house is set to the rear of its plot with outbuildings immediately to the rear boundary but the accommodation has been designed so that it benefits from the southerly aspect. A large conservatory has been added to the rear aspect and this has in turn created a cosy internal dining room. The sitting room is of an impressive size and features a wide glazed window to one end with French doors and sliding doors opening out onto the raised terrace. The kitchen is also of a good size and has a fitted double oven and hob and space for a dishwasher. The staircase is typical of its time, with open treads and decorative metal balustrade. The first floor accommodation is set within the roof area and therefore has ample storage space within the eaves. The shower room is reasonably recent in style, in contrast to the ground floor bathroom which would benefit from updating.

Outside The property is approached from the road via a tarmac driveway and a set of metal double gates which open into a parking area to the side of the house. An electric garage door opens into a practical covered area which in turn gives access to the garage/workshop beyond. Behind the garage lie additional outbuildings of various sizes. The gardens lie to the front of the house and are well established and screened by a high Leylandii hedge. Immediately to the right of the driveway is a raised area of garden which is turfed and bordered with a high red brick wall which continues along the rear north boundary. To the front south corner is a small walled area of garden and there are two sheds set to the west of the house. Overall, the grounds amount to 0.24 ac (0.099 ha) STS.

This is a good sized family home which is set back off the road and enjoys an elevated position with views over the town. Some fixtures and fittings within are now a little dated but there is nevertheless plenty of scope to improve and update to create a stylish modern home.
