Property Details

Location When buying a house location is one of the most important factors and there are few which can rival this truly unspoilt position. The surrounding area is principally farm and woodland. Whilst enjoying the rural splendour, this cottage is not far from either the small town of Eye (3 miles) or larger market town of Diss (7 miles) which has the benefit of a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes.

The Property Rose Cottage is believed to have origins dating back to the 17th century and is in part timber framed, much of which has been revealed. Rose Cottage has been extended but with care to preserve and enhance its character wherever possible whilst making a home that is comfortable to live in. Recent works have included fitting a new upstairs cloakroom and rewiring (electrical safety certificate obtained). The property also suits those who are looking to run a business from home or perhaps even looking for an annexe by conversion of the garage and utilising the current office.

Planning Consent has been passed by Mid Suffolk Council for an extension and alteration to the cottage under planning reference 3411/16 which creates a bathroom and larger bedroom on the first floor. Given the size of plot there may be possibilities to undertake larger scale extensions too (subject to the usual planning applications).

Outside This property has a lovely garden set principally to the rear and laid to lawn interspersed by well stocked flower borders and occasional trees including a walnut. There fruit cages, a garden shed and a patio area which catches the sun for most of the day but also provides areas of shelter. To the front there is a double garage and plenty of parking area plus an attractive lawned front garden with flowerbeds. Overall the property is set within 0.140 ha (0.35 acre).

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Recently fitted oil fired central heating system.

Directions From Diss connecting with the A140 and heading south towards Ipswich. Just after The Bull Auberge restaurant, turn right signposted to Thornham Parva and follow this road to the T-junction. Turn right and Rose Cottage will be found a little way along on the right hand side.
