Property Details

Location This cottage with its sizeable detached annex is situated in one of north Suffolk's prime villages and enjoys views to the front across to the vast area of common which is one of the longest in England. It is very conveniently placed next to a good eatery and public house, and just a very short walk from the village school which is rated as 'Outstanding'. Other facilities include the village store with post office, tearooms, tennis club with all weather courts, and the bowls club. This is an active community which supports a range of activities for all ages in the Village Hall including exercise classes and a bit of strictly ballroom! For wider facilities the bustling market town of Diss is just 4 miles to the north and provides a wide array of local and national shops, leisure and sporting facilities including an 18 hole golf course. Secondary schooling is at Eye just 4 miles away and the senior school is rated as 'Outstanding'.

The Property This cottage is Listed as Grade II indicating a property of architectural or historical importance. It is clear to see why, with the exposed floor and ceiling timbers, inglenook fireplace and a general sense of having been little altered. This is not to say that the cottage hasn't been improved over the years and most recently the thatched roof has been renewed with the front within the last two years and the rear within the last five.

In the centre of the house is a large hallway with stairs up to the first floor. The kitchen is well fitted, bright and overlooks the rear garden.

Upstairs are three bedrooms each having exposed timbers, and the bathroom which is a bright modern white suite.

The Annex This is a detached single storey building in the rear garden which has been converted from a studio by the present owners to create a quite spacious two bedroom self-contained annex.

Outside One of the great delights of Tarragon Cottage is its garden. The cottage is set back from the road with the drive to the side leading to the garage. The front garden is beside and sheltered by a mature front hedge with central pedestrian walkway which leads through a beautiful spring garden. There is access around either side to the rear which is in two distinct sections. The area closest to the house has a patio, ornamental pond, lawns and flowerbeds. Further back beyond the hedge is a very productive vegetable garden with various sheds. Within the garden are figs, red and black currant, gooseberries, plum and apple trees, and two asparagus beds. Overall the property is set within approximately one third of an acre.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Wood burning stove with back boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water in the house. The annex has an electric heating system.
