Property DetailsLocation The joined villages of Rickinghall and Botesdale are host to a surprising range of local amenities including a primary school, health centre, dentist, local supermarket, public houses and take-away food outlets, all of which are within walking distance. Schooling to sixth form level is available at the outstanding Ofsted rated Hartismere High School in Eye (5 miles). The historic town of Bury St Edmunds lies around 15 miles south west with access to the A14 connecting to Cambridge and the Midlands beyond. The market town of Diss (7 miles) has a train station providing regular intercity rail access to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street. The town provides extensive local and national shopping and a wide range of social and leisure amenities. The undulating countryside and quiet lanes surrounding Botesdale and Rickinghall are ideal for walkers and cyclists.
The Property This charming 2/3 bedroom cottage has plenty of character and good ceiling heights for a property of its age and style. There are two reception rooms, one with an inglenook fireplace and one with a Victorian style fireplace. This room can function well as a bedroom as it is served by a ground floor shower room. There is a very pleasant garden/dining room which opens directly out to the rear garden. It is fair to say that both the shower room and the kitchen would now benefit from a re-fit and for those looking for a project, there is scope to reconfigure the layout to create one large kitchen/breakfast room by incorporating the glazed garden room if desired.
The first floor landing incorporates two built-in wardrobes and has space for additional storage. Leading off are two bedrooms, the larger having windows to two aspects. It should be noted that the doorway into the larger bedroom has restricted head height as it sits below a horizontal beam.
Outside The property is approached directly from The Street via a pavement which runs along the front of the row of cottages. There is unrestricted parking in the road. The rear garden is fully fenced and is laid to lawn with a patio area abutting the cottage. To one side is a store area with power connected and a garden shed is sited to the rear of the garden. There is a limited right of access (wheelie bins, builders deliveries and removals) to the rear garden via a right of way through the garden of the neighbouring property
Services Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected to the property. Electric storage heating.
Directions From Diss head west on the A143 and continue through the village of Wortham. Continue along the road, bypassing the villages of Botesdale and Rickinghall. Take the third right hand turn into Rectory Hill (just before the left hand turn onto the B1113) and continue down the hill to the T-junction. Turn right into The Street and continue along The Street where the property will be found on the left hand side, marked with a For Sale board.
