Property Details

Location Shelfanger is a small village lying 3 miles north of the market town of Diss which offers a wide range of facilities including schooling to sixth form level, local and national shops, sporting and social clubs including an 18 hole golf course. The mainline railway station at Diss gives access to both Norwich (20mins) and London Liverpool Street (90mins). The cathedral city of Norwich is around 22 miles to the north where there is an international airport and the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold are around 30 miles away. Cambridge is also accessible by car in around 75 minutes.

The Property Church House was built in 1847 to a style reminiscent of the Georgian era. Over the years the property has been altered and adapted to combine the barn and outbuildings for residential use. The accommodation has recently been reconfigured to provide for a vaulted kitchen/dining room with electric AGA and integrated dishwasher. To one corner is a woodburning stove and at the opposite end a flight of stairs have been added to access a loft room (3.48m x 2.6m, not included in total sqm) which the family use as a media room. Leading off the kitchen is a charming playroom. The old kitchen has been made into a utility room and houses the washing machine and a large American style fridge freezer. This house is very practical on many levels; the ground floor annexe comprising an ensuite bedroom which can also be accessed immediately from the driveway makes an excellent income generator as an AirBnB. In addition, there is a study and a large boot room, ideal for storing coats, shoes, school satchels, sports clothing etc. There are two formal sitting rooms with period fireplaces to the front aspect and from the front hallway, a flight of stairs gives access to to three bedrooms and a newly installed bathroom with bath and large walk-in shower. Other improvements undertaken include replastering, redecorating, new flooring, the installation of double glazed windows to the first floor and the installation of a water softener. All in all, a most impressive and highly functional family home.

The front drive provides off road parking for several vehicles and there is scope to provide further parking and erect garaging.The owners enter the house via the side access which leads into a large entrance hall.
