4 bedroom property – Diss, NorfolkGuide Price £300,000
Property DetailsLocation This period cottage enjoys a wonderful location, being central and yet secreted away from the hustle and bustle of Victoria Road, which runs through the town. Diss has various facilities on offer including an excellent range of local and national shops, sporting facilities, health centre, library, fine church, auction room and schooling to sixth form level. There is a mainline railway station providing frequent commuter services to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street (in around 90 minutes). The regional retail, cultural and business centre of Norwich lies approximately 23 miles to the north and the historic town of Bury St Edmunds some 24 miles to the south west. The Suffolk Heritage Coast at Aldeburgh, Southwold and Walberswick is about an hour's drive away.
The Property Built of clay lump, the cottage has thick walls which provide excellent insulation and have the benefit of keeping the cottage deliciously cool in the summer and warm and cosy in the winter. The property has not changed hands for around 50 years and while it has been well maintained over the years and has Upvc windows and doors fitted, it is now ripe for a scheme of improvement and updating. The property has a fitted in-frame kitchen with granite-effect worktops and space for a fridge and cooker. There are three good-sized reception rooms, one with an open fireplace and there is a ground floor bathroom accessed off the dining room. Two staircases give access to the 4 double bedrooms on the first floor (two of them are landing bedrooms but can easily be separated from the staircases).
Outside The property is approached off Victoria Road via a track which is situated immediately to the left of Jewsons and leads up to No. 68 which sits side-on to the road. The track and parking area belong to this cottage and the owner of the adjacent cottage (No 66) has a right of way over the track and permission to park one vehicle. Access to No. 66 is via a footpath to the right hand side. The large garden is well screened, private and a haven for wildlife. (There is a gate in the fence to the east boundary which leads on to a track but this is permissive access only.) A summerhouse/workshop lies close to the cottage and the garden meanders gently down to its best kept secret and greatest feature which is its frontage to the river Waveney. This inviting wooded area creates the ideal place to sit back, relax and unwind.
Services Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity are connected to the property.
Directions From the town centre proceed east along Victoria Road. The track to the property is situated on the right hand side, immediately after the railway bridge and to the left side of Jewsons.
