3 bedroom detached house – The Street, Starston, Norfolk

Guide Price £325,000

Property Details

Location The Old School is within the Conservation Area of this small south Norfolk village with a southerly aspect over grazing meadows to the front and fields to the rear. Starston is a pretty, rural village situated around one mile from the centre of Harleston, an historic market town on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with a number of independent specialist shops and businesses providing a wide array of goods and services including a medium size supermarket. The town has well regarded schools, good sporting and leisure facilities and a wide range of social activities. Diss station is just 9 miles away providing frequent mainline commuter services to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street. The regional, cultural and business centre of Norwich lies approximately 18 miles to the north and the renowned Heritage Coast, including Southwold and Aldeburgh, is 40 minutes away within easy reach by car.

The Property Built in 1839, and as the name suggests, the former village school, this property is charming with its mix of brick and flint walls and cottage garden. The house is of mixed character with original school room having a high pine lined vaulted ceiling with decorative steel work supports, whilst the sitting room has painted panelled walls giving it a more elegant feel. The property has fewer but larger rooms which have large windows allowing the light to flood in.

It is fair to say that whilst the house has been maintained over the years, it would now need an overall scheme of updating and some general repairs (particularly to windows) and therefore offers a fairly blank canvas for a new owner to create their own home.

Outside The property is elevated with lovely views across the grazing meadows to the south and has a cottage style garden wrapping around the building with flowerbeds and areas of lawn. The drive at the side leads around the back to a brick and tiled garage, store and wc. Overall the property is set within 0.072 ha (0.18 acre).

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Drainage to a septic tank. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.

Directions From the A140 turn off onto the B1134 at the Pulham roundabout and head through Pulham Market and Pulham St Mary and into Starston. The Old School is on the left hand side as you enter the village.

Agents Note The area of grass beyond the driveway is not owned by our client and therefore not included in the sale.
