5 bedroom detached house – BressinghamGuide Price £895,000
Property DetailsLocation This superbly presented house is in a quiet location, set back from the road and well positioned within its plot with plenty of parking to the front. Bressingham is a medium size village which is quite spread out and retains its village shop which is a brisk walk away, primary school and fine church. The house enjoys views across the surrounding countryside which is gently undulating and offers many country walks. The bustling market town of Diss is just two miles to the east and provides an excellent range of local and national shops including three supermarkets, schooling to sixth form level, sporting and social facilities such as rugby, tennis, squash and bowls clubs plus an 18 hole golf course. For those needing access to the wider world, Diss has a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes, Norwich and Ipswich are around 25 miles away and Bury St Edmunds some 18 miles. This fine house offers a quiet village location with easy access to facilities.
The Property Woodpeckers was built around 20 years ago and is a fine house providing around 3000ft²of living space which is all very well presented. This house has a good natural flow and the quality is apparent as soon as you walk into the reception hall where the elegant stairs rise ahead. The living room is bright and has the added dimension of the bay window to the front and the garden room to the rear which is a splendid place to enjoy the garden. The dining room easily takes a good size table and with its double doors onto the garden, this is a great area in the summer months. The kitchen is large enough for a breakfast table and has been well fitted out, as has the utility. For those needing to work from home there is a study and the games room would also make a useful home office or as an annexe with its own access, shower room and WC.
The first floor provides five quite generous bedrooms with the main room having an ensuite shower and there are built in wardrobes to all of the rooms. The bathroom is a contemporary style white suite. On the landing there is a pull down ladder which leads up to the fully fitted attic study which is an ideal area for a games room or, if a full staircase was added it could be another full bedroom.
Outside One of the great attractions of this property is the extent and style of the grounds. Overall the house sits in 2.19ac of landscaped gardens with areas of lawn, ponds, deep flower and shrub beds, a 'heritage' orchard including apple, pear, medlar trees from the East Anglian Apple and Orchards Project, as well as a large patio and summer house from which to enjoy these spectacular gardens. The cedar greenhouse and timber garden store are included in the sale.
To the rear is a modern barn (approx. 10m by 10m) which provides excellent secure storage and beyond is the picket fenced vegetable garden and a recently planted avenue of silver birch and box bushes leading you through the orchard to a raised area from where there are far reaching views. There is a second gated access to the rear garden making it easy to bring in larger machinery if needed.
Agents note There is a public footpath over the second accessway but this is away from the main garden and does not therefore impinge on the enjoyment of the gardens.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Drainage to a private treatment plant. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators.
