Bank House, as the name suggests used to be the old bank for the village of Botesdale. The house dates from around the late 18th century and is a fine example of local architecture with an elegant rendered faade and four large bay windows. The house has been extended over the years and now provides substantial accommodation over four floors.
To the front of the house you will find the two main reception rooms, both with bay windows and period features. The sitting room has a lovely inglenook fireplace with an inset stove, while the dining room has a recess alcove. Connecting the rooms is a small hallway, which still has the original space for the overnight bank safe. The larger hallway has stairs to first floor level and also stairs down to the cellar, which provides an excellent storage space. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom/wc, breakfast room with bay window and a well equipped kitchen which has a selection of wooden wall and base units. Stairs rise to a light and airy landing where three bedrooms and the family bathroom lead off. The family bathroom is of good size, comprising a shower cubicle, wc, hand wash basin and bath. A large double airing cupboard provides storage. All three bedrooms have built in wardrobes, with the rear bedroom benefiting from a shower and hand wash basin - making it ideal as a guest suite. On the second floor are three further bedrooms (two double, one single) and an inter-connecting box room/walk in wardrobe.
The gardens are largely laid to lawn with a private terrace to the rear of the house and number of mature flower beds bordering. The garden is fully enclosed and predominately faces West, enjoying the afternoon light and sunshine. A gate opens out into a large off road parking area which provides ample parking and turning space. Beyond this area is a detached red-brick barn. The barn is in need of some repair, but would make an excellent studio, garage or store. A right of way for the benefit of an adjoining property runs through the parking area to their parking and garage.
Bank House is nestled at the top end of Botesdale, being only a short walk from the village centre. The village of Botesdale is highly regarded as one of the most desirable places to live locally, having excellent facilities and amenities. The adjoining village of Rickinghall also provides an excellent range of facilities, and the two villages offer a co-operative supermarket, primary school, doctors, dentist, church, take aways, pubs and other independent shops. Diss (located 6 miles away) offers further facilities and a train station with frequent trains to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street. The historic town of Bury St Edmunds lies around 15 miles south west with access to the A14 connecting to Cambridge and the Midlands beyond.
From the A143 head into the village on Bury Road, which continues onto Diss Road. Diss Road, runs into The Street, where the property will be found opposite the junction to Mill Road.
