The Property
Fordhams Mill Cottage is an individual build, constructed in the late 1990s and is of timber frame construction beneath an interlocking tiled roof. This attractive house has been finished to the highest of standards and has recently been improved further with a refitted kitchen and landscaped gardens. The accommodation is spacious and well laid out, extending to just over 2,000 square feet in all.
On entering, the wide reception hallway welcomes you into the home with stairs straight ahead and a useful study leading off to the left hand side. The sitting room is triple aspect with lovely exposed beams all surrounding the cozy feature fireplace. Nestled on the tiled hearth is a 'Jotul' wood burning stove, perfect for winter days. Double doors open out into the sun room which was extended after the millennium, with a brick base and doubled glazed windows. The room is currently being used as a play room with lovely views over the gardens. Located at the other end of the house is the wonderful kitchen/dining room. Originally two separate rooms, the current vendors made the wise decision to knock through to create one spacious family room, perfect for entertaining. The kitchen units and appliances have recently been refitted and of particular note is the large island unit with granite work top. Integral appliances include a stylish wine cooler and built in dishwasher. The kitchen offers space for a range style cooker, american fridge freezer and a large dining table. At the back of the house is the useful utility room, rear lobby and downstairs cloakroom. Stairs rise to the first floor where in total there are three further bedrooms in addition to the master suite. The master is very well proportioned with two double wardrobes and a three piece en-suite shower room. The family bathroom comprises a panelled bath, low level wc and a pedestal hand wash basin.

Fordhams Mill Cottage is set back off the road, approached over a large gravel driveway, which can accommodate six to seven cars. There is also a double garage which measures 20ft1 x 18ft2 with first floor office/play room. Accessed by an external staircase, the room would make an ideal studio or storage space measuring 20ft x 11ft8 with a window to front aspect. The rear garden is very special indeed, having been landscaped by the current owners in recent months. A large patio area immediately adjoins the rear of the house, accessible from the rear lobby and sun room. The patio sweeps across the garden providing two large dining areas and a designated hot tub area, with power and high-tech LED lighting. The external lighting can all be controlled from the touch of a smart phone or traditionally within the house itself. Beyond the patio is a large lawned garden with a variety of trees and flower beds. In total, the plot extends to 0.225 of an acre.

Situated down a quiet single track lane, the property has only a handful of neighbours with woodland and fields to both front and rear.This pretty village borders the Little Ouse valley fen which is a special area of conservation and an important habitat for wildlife. A network of small country lanes run between the local villages and, along with local bridleways and footpaths, there are many opportunities for countryside walks, cycling and horse riding. Everyday facilities can be found in Hopton and Garboldisham. The nearby historic village of Redgrave has a village shop and a pub. The nearest village school is in the village of Garboldisham to the north. The market town of Diss is 7 miles to the east and has a good selection of independent shops, well regarded schools, supermarket and a train station with a direct line rail service to London Liverpool Street.
