4 bedroom detached house – The Green, Palgrave, SuffolkGuide Price £645,000
Property DetailsLocation This period house is set back from the road behind a small area of Green with its garden extending to the rear onto open fields. Palgrave is a very popular village on the borders of Suffolk with Norfolk at the head of the Waveney Valley. It retains a good community feel with its church, village school and Green with duck pond. For the commuter it is very well placed as there is a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line in Diss just over a mile away, and this bustling market town provides an excellent range of sporting, social and shopping facilities. Secondary schooling for the area is in the smaller town of Eye just 5 miles away. For those who enjoy the coast, the famous areas of Southwold and Aldeburgh are within 50 minutes by car, or the North Norfolk coast is a little over the hour. This is a location which offers the tranquil village life with excellent access to the wider world.
The House This house offers a 'package' which is seldom seen having not only the fine house but also the original coach house and a range of studio outbuildings. The Swan is Grade II Listed and believed to date from the late 16th century and the timberwork is revealed in a number of areas. It shows the changes that have taken place over the centuries and was a public house until the late 1960s and then bought by the current owners who set about a scheme of sympathetic restoration. This has been done with a delicate hand to retain as much character as possible including the original pub benches, areas of panelling, and doors. At the same time it has been made into a wonderful family home offering great potential for the extended family or those looking to work from home.
The Coachhouse and Studios The coach house is an elegant building in its own right and probably from the Victorian era. This was converted and extended to create a nursery school (now closed) and has great potential as additional family living space as an annex, or perhaps those looking to work from home. On the opposite side of the garden is an attractive range of buildings which are part period and part modern. These have been used as an artist's studio for many years.
Outside The property is set within 0.278ha (0.69ac). To the front is a large shingled parking area and a double garage which was the original stabling. A gated access leads to the rear where the majority of garden lies. This has a south easterly aspect with the immediate area having almost a courtyard feel being bounded by the coach house, the main house and the studios. There is a patio area, large lavender bed and beyond this 'courtyard' lies a further expanse of ground laid to grass with mature trees and flowerbeds.
Services Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are connected to the property. Gas fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
Directions From the Agent's Office heading across Fair Green into Palgrave. Go past the school to the T-junction and turn left. The Swan is almost immediately on the right, directly opposite the church.
