2 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Residing within the historic market town of Watton, enjoying the convenience of having an array of amenities on your doorstep, this delightful, detached period cottage has been both a loving home and investment for the vendor for almost 20 years.

Although the property has been refurbished throughout the vendors ownership, the charming original features still remain, providing a cosy homely feeling but has incorporated the benefit of modern features for ease of living, including a gas fired central heating combi boiler and a wood-burning stove. The property has also benefited from a good degree of maintenance due to it's age such as a new roof and the instalment of a new damp system plus dehumidifier installed in the roof.

The internal space approximately extends to 708 sq. ft. To the ground floor the charming sitting room has dual uPVC windows to the front aspect and a featured inset fireplace housing a wood-burning stove. The country style kitchen, with integrated appliances, has space for a dining table and boasts an exposed brick fireplace fitted with another wood-burning stove, adding to the property's charm. A separate utility room leads to the downstairs four-piece family bathroom and the private courtyard.

The first floor accommodation has two well-proportioned double bedrooms with original floorboards, and two large windows to the front aspect in the principal bedroom.

The cottage is accessed from Griston Road, set back with the benefit of off road parking, unlike some of the neighbouring properties, via a shingled driveway. Upon entering via a pedestrian gate into the front garden, which is fully enclosed by panel fencing with a shingled front area, paved patio and decorative flower and shrub borders. Ideal for sitting out during the summer months and a great place to have friends over. Furthermore, a side path leads to the small courtyard area of the rear garden, which is shingled. There is also an outhouse/storage shed.

WATTON Providing plenty of country homes with room to grow, plus an ample share of equestrian properties, the popular market town of Watton has a strong rural community, which comes together each year for the annual Wayland Show, one of England's oldest agricultural shows.

Located in the heart of Breckland, the town is well-served by primary, junior and secondary schools, a GP clinic, dental surgery and chemist, along with a supermarket, Post Office and sports centre.

Just outside the town, Loch Neaton is believed to be England's only loch. In 1875, Scottish railway workers excavated land to establish a new railway from Thetford to Watton and the site filled with water from the River Wissey, forming a lake. A group of Victorian entrepreneurs saw the potential to develop this picturesque spot into a pleasure garden with woodland trails, boats, a bandstand and even winter ice skating. Although the attractions are long gone, the loch is still a stunning location to enjoy a relaxing walk or a day spent fishing the waters.

Local legend has it that nearby Wayland Wood is the site of the children's tale, Babes in the Wood, and the beauty of the area makes it an unmissable place to explore. Enjoy the cycle trails at nearby Thetford Forest or book a game at Richmond Park Golf Course, an 18-hole course with driving range set in 100 acres of parkland.

Well-exercised, there are several good pubs serving real ales and good grub to recharge your energy - try The Willow House, The Waggon & Horses in nearby Griston or The Old Bell at Saham Toney, north of Watton.

With its many historic and stunning natural landmarks, plus a superb range of properties to discover, Watton is a jewel in Norfolk's rural crown.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity and drainage. Gas fired central heating, fuelled by a Combi Boiler.
