Accommodation comprises briefly:
Three Double Bedrooms
Hawthorn Cottage is believed to date back to the early 19th century and is constructed of brick with rendered facades beneath an interlocking tiled roof. The cottage is surprisingly not listed, which is extremely rare for a property of this era and design.
A handsome front porch welcomes you into the cottage and leads into the sitting room. The room has a red brick inglenook fireplace with inset real flame gas stove, creating a real focal point for the room. The room also houses stairs to the first floor and a useful under stairs cupboard. A set down proceeds through to the kitchen, which in recent years has been fully replaced including the electric appliances. Built into the units is a oven and four ring gas hob with extracting fan over. Further utility space is located beneath the work surfaces. Adjacent to the kitchen is a small lobby, which connects to the family bathroom. The bathroom has a modern white, three piece suite and is finished to a high standard with tiled splash backs, box wood paneling and a 'rainfall' shower unit. Located at the rear of the house is the UPVC conservatory which also has access into a large pantry/storage cupboard. The staircase ascends from the sitting room up to the landing where you will find three double rooms. Two of the bedrooms have built in wardrobes/storage, with the master having the best elevated views across the village green.
The exterior of the property is made up of lovely cottage style gardens with a lawned garden and driveway to the front of the cottage, and a good sized block paved area with flower borders to the rear. The house itself is set back some 50ft from the road and is hidden behind mature shrubs and a five bar gate. The driveway provides parking for a number of vehicles, leading up to the garage - which has power and light. The rear garden is block paved and incredibly private with fields beyond the rear boundary. The garden is home to a number of mature flower beds a vegetable patch and the original water well, which is still in functioning order. In all 0.1 Acres (sts)
Standing in this highly desirable and pleasant position, Hawthorn Cottage certainly has an enviable situation, overlooking the village green. Beyond the green is the main village of Roydon which has a popular village pub, petrol station cum village store and a primary school. Further facilities are located in the town of Diss, situated only one mile away. Diss offers further day to day facilities from banks to doctors and from supermarkets to cafes. The town also has schooling up to sixth form level. An additional benefit of the town is its mainline train services to London Liverpool Street taking approximately 90 minutes.
