4 bedroom detached house – Thorpe Abbotts, DissGuide Price £295,000
Property DetailsLocation The pretty and peaceful village of Thorpe Abbotts lies approximately 6 miles to the east of the Norfolk/Suffolk border town of Diss, a thriving market town offering an excellent range of local and national shopping, various sporting and social amenities including rugby, football and cricket clubs along with an 18 hole golf course and driving range. In addition, the town has a mainline railway station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with trains arriving in London in around 90 minutes. Local schools include Brockdish and Scole primary schools and secondary schooling is available at Archbishop Sancroft CE High School in Harleston and Diss High School which has a sixth form department. Road access to and from Diss is excellent with Norwich and Ipswich 25 miles away via the A140. Bury St Edmunds lies around 20 miles to the south west via the A143, connecting to the A14, whilst the A11 is 16 miles to the west leading to Newmarket, Cambridge and London.
The Property Built of clay lump construction with a brick skin, the property has good insulation levels, staying cool in the summer months and warm in the winter. There are upvc windows and doors but it is fair to say that the property now needs a full scheme of refurbishment. This property offers a wonderful opportunity to those looking for a project and given the size of the plot there is ample room to extend to create a spacious family home.
Outside The property enjoys a wide frontage and an attractive location within the village. To the right hand side lies a barn which, once improved would make a good workshop. Alternatively it offers scope for conversion into an annexe or holiday home which could generate useful income. There is space to the left side of the property to erect garaging if required. Within the garden is a shed with kennel attached and the rear gardens are laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees to the boundaries. At the very rear is a compost area.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Oil fired central heating. The property is believed to be on private drainage but buyers will need to make their own enquiries.
Directions From Diss proceed east on the A143 towards Great Yarmouth. Take the left hand turn signed Thorpe Abbotts and proceed into the village. Turn right into The Street and the property will be found on the right hand side, clearly marked with a For Sale board.
