2 bedroom bungalow in 1.5ac – South Lopham, NorfolkGuide Price £450,000
Property DetailsLocation This property really does command a wonderful position, set in the midst of its plot on a very quiet country lane and views across the Redgrave and Lopham Fen nature reserve. It is a very tranquil setting ideal for those interested in wildlife or simply wanting to get away from the daily hubbub and yet it is only 5 miles from the bustling market town of Diss which has an excellent range of shops, schools and social activities as well as having a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. A little further away is the fine old town of Bury St Edmunds (18 miles) or the cathedral city of Norwich just 28 miles. This property combines a superb rural setting with easy access to the wider world.
The Property The bungalow has been tastefully modernised over the last few years to create a very pleasing and bright range of rooms with large windows allowing the natural light to flood in. Works have included a new oil fired heating system with a pressurised cylinder to give a great flow to the shower, new kitchen, new bathroom with underfloor heating, rewiring, wifi enabled heating and hot water control and thorough redecoration and flooring. This bungalow now offers very comfortable living space.
Given the size of the plot there is room to extend (subject to planning) should a new owner so wish.
Outside Briar Cottage is set in 0.607ha (1.50ac) which is principally grassland with a shingle drive to the front and various trees. The grounds are far from landscaped and offer a blank canvas to a new owner to create whatever they wish.
Buildings The property has three outbuildings in the grounds:
Tin clad store shed: 18' x 10'
3 bay open fronted store: 32'6 x 18'6
Blockwork former piggery building: 60' x 31'6. It may be possible to obtain planning consent for conversion of this building to a residential dwelling under Class Q of the Permitted Development Rights. Purchasers will need to make their own enquires in relation to this if they are interested.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Drainage to a private drainage system. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
