3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

Set on the fringe of Wortham Ling, Fox Cottage enjoys a pleasant, rural location. On your doorstep you'll find the 53 hectares site of special scientific interest, which is accessible to the public on foot and attracts an array of wildlife. It's a popular destination for both dog walkers and non-dog walkers alike, enjoying the heathland throughout the seasons. The historic market town of Diss is just a stones throw away, providing an array of amenities and public transport, including a trainline directly into London.

Fox Cottage is approached from Rectory Road, set back with a cottage style front garden behind a decorative low-level hedge. A central pathway leads to the front door and enjoys a rendered finish with a charming storm porch underneath a pantile roof, giving the property an attractive fa硤e.

Originally the property was a simple one up one down with a lean-to kitchen to the rear. The cottage has been transformed by the current owners, who sympathetically restored the property in 2018, adding a two-storey rear extension providing modern qualities of living yet enjoying a contemporary finish with original character features.

The property extends to approx. 1,109 sq. ft. across two floors with spacious and light accommodation throughout. The ground floor includes a generous open-plan kitchen/dining room to the rear of the property, double doors lead out onto an enclosed private garden where you can sit and hear nothing but bird song and the occasional 'toot toot' of the steam train at Bressingham Steam Museum. Furthermore, the kitchen has a range of base and larder storage cupboards, complemented by solid wood surfaces and a stainless-steel Range electric oven. Additionally, there is space for a large dining table, or the ability to create a snug area within the kitchen. The cosy sitting room has lime-washed exposed beams and an original fireplace, a perfect place to enjoy and socialise.

As you pass the downstairs cloakroom, a handmade staircase guides you to the first floor where you are greeted by three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The main bedroom to the front of the property basks in stunning views and enjoys an original fireplace. The two remaining bedrooms are formed as part of the extension and are of a similar size. The family bathroom is incredibly light, benefiting from a sky light and is fitted with a P shaped bath with overhead shower.

To the rear of the property is a shingled area upon entering the garden. Central steps lead up to a lawned area to enjoy, with established plants providing privacy. Furthermore, there are two allocated parking spaces, one of which is accessed through the rear garden or over the shared driveway, whilst the other is close to the back door.

WORTHAM A pretty village set on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, within an area of scientific interest. Wortham is situated on the edge of the 53-hectare heath and SSSI of Wortham Ling, from which it gets its name.

Whilst Wortham has a remote feel, it's just a few minutes away from a major supermarket and enjoys superb travel links such as Diss Main Line Station, which operates services to Norwich and London Liverpool Street, making it an ideal location for those relocating from city life but still desire the ability to commute.

Diss is a historic market town packed with period churches, timber-framed buildings and famously the six acre Diss Mere with central fountain and underground springs, this Norfolk market town makes the perfect base for touring the inland towns, villages and countryside of both Suffolk and Norfolk. You're also just a stone's throw from the classical music centre Aldeburgh and the heritage coast. Norwich to the north and Constable Country around Ipswich to the south are within easy driving distance.

Diss offers a wide array of amenities from their Friday market, boutique shops and supermarkets, to pubs and restaurants, blending character buildings with open spaces.
