Situated within this attractive village, Rose Cottage is a charming four bedroom detached cottage. Understood to have origins dating back to the 17th century, this beautifully presented property has in more recent years been subject to comprehensive updating and improvement, having been extended a number of years ago. The cottage is surprisingly not listed, offering period charm and personality, yet modern style living with wonderfully arranged accommodation.
Walking through the front door, a porch leads into the cosy sitting room which has exposed timbers and a feature fireplace with a wood-burning stove. This room is part of the original cottage and has been extended creating a small breakfast room, with patio doors to the front garden. From the sitting room a door leads into the kitchen. This recently refitted kitchen offers ample storage, space for a cooker and a useful under stairs cupboard. Beyond is a dining room which leads into the garden room. The garden room is a superb space for entertaining with windows and double doors opening out onto a patio area in the West facing rear garden. Leading back to the original part of the house a rear hallway opens off the kitchen with stairs to first floor and a downstairs shower room. Up on the first floor is a landing space, family bathroom and four bedrooms. Two bedrooms have views to the front of the property, while the remaining two enjoy views over the rear gardens.
The gardens are certainly a feature of Rose Cottage and incorporate two areas:- to the front of the house is a long driveway providing off road parking and also a car-port which could accommodate two small cars side-by-side, with the main garden area to the rear of the house. This tucked away West facing rear garden is surrounded by mature hedging and trees which thrive in this sheltered yet sunny garden, offering excellent seclusion - perfect for those who enjoy their privacy. There is also an artists studio/home office which is insulated and benefits from power, light and electric heating. In all the plot size extends to 0.2 acres (sts).
The cottage is set back from the road, sheltered by mature trees and hedges, providing a lovely secluded feel one would expect from living in the middle of the countryside. In fact, the cottage is situated in the centre of North Lopham village, with good access to the village public house, shop/post office and primary school. Further afield is the market town of Diss which is approximately 6 miles away. Located within the town is a greater selection of facilities, schooling and services. The town also benefits from a mainline train station with services to London Liverpool Street taking approx. 90 minutes.
On entering the village from the A1066, continue into the village and after approximately 1⁄4 of a mile, the property will be located on the left hand side. The house is hidden from the road and is located opposite 'Tanns Lane'. A for sale board will be located at the end of the drive.
The property is offered subject to and with the benefit of all rights of way, whether public or private, all way leaves, easements and other rights of way whether specifically mentioned or not.
