Property Details

Location This house is in a good location away from neighbours and a little way from the village but at the same time it is not isolated. The views to the front and rear are far reaching across farmland. The nearest town is Diss just 5 miles and has an excellent range of facilities including schooling to sixth form level, local and national shops and various sports clubs (rugby, tennis, football and golf course to name a few). Transport links are good with Diss having a mainline rail service on the Norwich to London Liverpool line (journey time of 90 minutes), Norwich itself is just 20 miles away and the A11 giving a swift route to Newmarket and Cambridge is 5 miles away.

This is an attractive property in a semi-rural position combining the country lifestyle with easy access to facilities.

The Property Furze Farm is a very well timbered house listed as Grade 11 and it is clear to see why with its very closely spaced wall and ceiling timbers indicative of a house of importance. It is believed to date from the 17th Century and is thought to have been a 'hall house' originally. A number of improvements have been made over the years including the replacement double glazed windows completed in a very sympathetic style, a modern kitchen and stylish sanitary wares. There is still scope to make alterations and improvements (subject to planning) including the store rooms attached to the house and on the first floor. This is a house of quality with huge additional potential.
