Redgrave Road, South Lopham

£425,000 (SSTC)

A charming detached 16th century cottage retaining a wealth of original features including exposed timbers and fine inglenook fireplaces, whilst benefitting from considerable improvements for the current owners and complemented by a fabulous setting affording stunning views. The accommodation currently in brief comprises: entrance door opening to an entrance porch and further door opening into the study area with exposed timbers, stairs to the first floor and quaint little oak double glazed window to the side. A Suffolk latch door gives access to the sitting room and is a great room with fine inglenook fireplace with built in wood burner and evidence of a bread oven. The room has a wonderful old timber frame and sympathetically installed oak flooring. A pair of handmade oak windows overlooks the front garden and the Fen beyond. The Kitchen breakfast room has a comfortable feel with plenty of room for a breakfast table and chairs by the bi-fold glazed doors. The traditional fitted units have a double Belfast sink set into a wooden work surface. This wooden work surface continues around the kitchen with bespoke fitted cupboards and drawers under and the glazed wall cabinets provide extra storage. At one end there is an oil fired kitchen range with boiler supplying the heating and hot water system (not tested). The oak floor is also continued into this room and there are further oak double glazed windows to the rear and side. The dining room is a delightful room for entertaining with many exposed timbers and a fine Inglenook fireplace. Open studwork gives access to the lovely little snug with fabulous meticulously fitted flooring made from individual pennies. This gives an unusual but very effective floor. Rear hall with stairs off to first floor. The bathroom has been remodelled and has a traditional suite which comprises a wash basin, low level w.c. and wonderful free standing roll top bath with ball and claw feet.

First floor accommodation
There are two staircases leading to the first floor and the three generous bedrooms displaying many period features and a Suffolk landing/bedroom 4.

The cottage is set behind a wood lap fence with trellis top panels and a large five bar gate that leads to a driveway and parking area. Predominantly the front garden which is set back from the road by some distance is laid to lawn with young trees and lovely old brick and flint wall to one side. The lawn extends to the side of the property which leads to the rear garden which provides a very private and large Indian sandstone terrace ideal for sitting and al fresco dining. A superb hot tub is available subject to negotiation with the vendor.

The Cottage is situated opposite the wonderful South Lopham Fen which is an exceptional place for wildlife. South Lopham village has a church and public house. The nearby village of North Lopham is about two miles to the north and has a primary school, post office and shop. The market town of Diss lies some five miles east and provides a much wider range of shopping facilities and amenities including a mainline rail link to London’s Liverpool Street Station (journey time approximately 90 minutes).

From Bury St Edmunds, proceed north east on the A143 towards Diss. After passing Rickinghall and Botesdale, turn left signposted Redgrave. Follow the road through Redgrave and after leaving the village, the cottage will be found further on the left hand hand.

All mains services are connected. Oil fired central heating. Council tax band E.
