4 bedroom semi-detached house – Denton, NorfolkGuide Price £395,000
Property DetailsLocation This pretty cottage is set in a rural, yet not isolated, position midway between Harleston and Bungay on a quiet rural lane. The cottage has far reaching views over this area of rolling countryside, particularly from the upper level garden, where the expanse of the Waveney Valley grazing marshes and wooded areas can be seen. The village centre is a little way off but has an active community supporting its village hall and two churches and various social activities and clubs including a good playing field. The Two thriving towns of Harleston and Bungay provide an excellent range of independently owned shops along with a supermarket, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgery, schools to GCSE level, hotels, a number of cafes, restaurants and pubs. For those needing access to London, the mainline rail station at Diss is only 15 miles away providing a 90 minute train journey to Liverpool Street. The Heritage Coast around Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh is only 20 miles or so. This is a property which combines a rural lifestyle with easy access to facilities and the wider world.
The Property The cottage offers quite spacious living areas particularly since the extension has been added to the side in a very sympathetic manner to reflect the vernacular architecture of the region. Internally it is hard to see where new meets old but it has made such a difference to the overall flow of the cottage. During renovations, as much of the traditional feel has been retained including the elm staircase and floorboards upstairs as well as traditional doors, open fireplaces with redbrick arches or cast iron insets, whilst allowing for modern touches. Both living rooms are naturally bright, and the well fitted kitchen with its arched fireplace recess housing the cooking range, mix of wood and granite worktops, has room at the far end for a breakfast area in front of the old fireplace. There is also a large walk in pantry cupboard ideal for the keen cook. Additional space is provided in the utility/wc.
The first floor has four bedrooms although one is currently used as a home office and a well fitted bathroom with a white suite of bath with shower over and tiled surround, wc and vanity washbasin.
Outside One of the beauties of this cottage is the extent of ground which is approaching half an acre. There are various areas of garden with the immediate grounds having been heavily planted to provide year round colour. The drive and cartlodge style garage allowing plenty of parking and general storage space, and then the grounds rise up through a tiered area of garden with water feature, hidden patio area and pathways up to the higher garden which is mainly grassed with various fruit trees. This area has a separate access from the road making maintenance simple, and there are superb views across the expanse of the Waveney Valley. Overall the property is set within 0.162Ha (0.40ac)
