Location Kenninghall is around 7 miles west of Diss and is accessible from the town via the A1066. The village itself contains an interesting mix of properties and retains the feel of a traditional rural village. It is well served with facilities including a public house, shop with post office, church, primary school and various social activities. There are lots of country walks in this area and the village is well placed for access to a wider range of amenities and well regarded schools. The fine cathedral city of Norwich is around 25 miles away, Bury St Edmunds 20 miles and the bustling market town of Diss with its weekly Friday auction, just 7 miles to the east, where there is a mainline rail station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey time of 90 minutes. 

The Property As the name suggests, this property started off life as a cart shed but is a new build on the footprint of the original building. It was converted for residential use approximately 10 years ago and whilst really detached, there is a linked roof area over the driveway to the neighbouring property. The accommodation amounts to some 3,324 sqft/308.9 sqm (including garage and carport) and offers a flexible layout with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the first floor (one with an en-suite bathroom) and a spacious study/games room. There is an impressive vaulted and part galleried sitting room which features a 'Tortoise brand' open fireplace. A large garden room currently serves as a dining room and music room. The kitchen is well equipped and boasts an electric Aga as well as an integral double electric oven and four ring electric hob and there is space for a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Not only is the layout versatile but it is also practical, offering a most useful walk-in airing cupboard in addition to a spacious laundry room with double doors to the garden. Furthermore, there is convenient access to both the integral garage and carport from the garden room. 

Outside The property is approached from the main street via a private driveway which is shared by the surrounding properties within Crown Courtyard. The garage and carport provide two parking spaces and there is an additional parking space to the rear accessed via a driveway which leads between The Cart Shed and the neighbouring property to an area of communal garden. The annual maintenance cost for the upkeep of this garden and communal area being approximately £100 per annum per household. From this area of driveway a field gate opens into the rear garden which is laid mainly to lawn and incorporates a summerhouse (2.98m x 2.9m) and garden shed (2.35m x 2.9m).
