4 bedroom house – PalgraveGuide Price £550,000
Property DetailsLocation This house is set back from the road almost hidden from view 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 Property Built in the mid-1980s by highly regarded local builder Danny Ward for the current owners, this house has stood the test of time. Whilst general upkeep has been done, it is fair to say the fixtures and fittings, whilst fully functioning, are perhaps a little dated in style, allowing a new owner the freedom to change to their own tastes. The rooms were designed to make the most of the light and followed the maxim of 'less is more' by having fewer rooms than may normally be expected in a house of this size but larger ones. It also offers very flexible living space with a combination of ground and first floor bedrooms, and a particularly large landing which could easily be used as a study area.
Overall this is a large well maintained house with room to make your own mark.
Outside As the name suggests, the property is very much about its garden. It is set in 0.29ac of well cared for grounds which back onto grassed meadows. The main garden is lawned with various trees and shrubs and a brick rubble wall, This type of wall is used to great effect in other areas of the garden, including the enclosed rear garden, and gives an interesting dimension year-round. Close to the house is a small walled courtyard with ceramic water feature fountain which was part of the original design scheme. To the side is a tarmac parking area for several cars and the double garage. The timber shed 3.6m x 2.4m is included in the sale.
Services Mains water, electricity, agas and drainage are connected. Gas fired boiler providing heating to radiators.
