Guide Price £550,000

Property Details

Location This charming house sits tucked away off Low Street, along a no-through lane which leads up to the church and is therefore unaffected by passing traffic. Close by is the village green, shop with post office and renowned Swan Inn public house. This historic village has a strong community spirit supporting the village primary school and village hall and its playing fields. It is considered by many to be one of the prettiest villages along the Waveney Valley and is also well placed for secondary schools and wider facilities, with the small town of Eye being around 5 miles away and the larger market town of Diss just 6 miles, from where there is a mainline railway station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line. For those who enjoy the coast, the areas of Southwold, Aldeburgh and Walberswick are around a 40 minute drive to the east.

The Property The White House is a classically proportioned Grade 11 Listed house with its white brick façade giving a sense of grandeur. The current owners have lived here for over 30 years and have created a delightful family home, remodelling some areas and adding an extension to the rear. The steps at the front lead to the front door and into a wide hallway with stairs to the side and understairs WC. The main living room has shuttered sash windows and the focal point of an elegant fireplace with a log burning stove. To the rear is a study area, ideal as the ever more important home office. To the other side of the hall is the dining room whilst to the rear is a large 'L' shaped kitchen/breakfast room, allowing plenty of room for a breakfast table as well as plenty of storage space. Appliances include an integrated dishwasher, tumble drier, double oven with ceramic hob and extractor over. On the first floor the central landing gives access to four generous bedrooms and a recently fitted bathroom with a white suite of bath with shower over, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash basin as well as a makeup area with back lit mirror. Overall this house combines period character such as high ceilings, sash windows, fireplaces, elegant staircase and stripped doors with comfortable family living space

Outside The house is set in a plot of around 0.17ac with its garden to the rear. To the side and facing onto Church Hill is a detached garage/workshop (8.3m by 5.0m) which is the ideal 'man cave' and there are pedestrian access gates to either side. The rear garden has been created by the owners in a tiered fashion with steps leading up to areas of patio with lighting and flowerbeds and further onto lawn. At the top of the garden is a timber shed and dog run, from here there are views across the roof tops of part of the village. Lower down against the back of the house is a walkway leading to a small pond and sheltered patio area which is a lovely cool area in the hot summers.
