4 bedroom detached house – Brome, Suffolk£420,000
Property DetailsLocation The property stands on the outskirts of the pretty and unspoilt village of Brome and the town of Eye (2 miles) which offers excellent schooling to sixth form level and is just 3 miles or so from the bustling market town of Diss which has a mainline railway station to London Liverpool Street. The beautiful Heritage coastline is just 40 minutes by car.
Due to road improvements scheduled to start in September 2019 a new road layout south of the cottage will significantly reduce the flow of traffic past the property. This will greatly enhance the location and the enjoyment of this cottage.
The Property It is believed that the cottage was built between 1812 and 1820. Once owned by the Cornwallis Estate the cottage has an interesting history and served as the village shop for many decades, including during WW2 before becoming a private residence in 1967. The current owners have been in occupation since 1971 and in their years of ownership, from 1984, they have carried out sympathetic improvements and alterations which have added to the character of this appealing home.
Internally, there are four reception rooms, including the lean to conservatory which also serves as utility room, a kitchen with dining area and a ground floor bathroom and wc, this lends flexibility to the study being used as a bedroom if required. The sitting room features an attractive brick fireplace with woodburning stove and the larger living room with windows to three aspects features a fireplace with refurbished fire surround and a woodburning stove. The kitchen is simply fitted with bespoke pitch pine units and tiled work surfaces and has space for a stand-alone cooker. From the dining area a door gives access to the staircase to the first floor. The landing is spacious and three bedrooms of similar size lead off. A family bathroom sits to one end. Off one of the bedrooms is a small low door which gives access to two useful store rooms.
