Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location The popular village of Bressingham sits close to the Suffolk/Norfolk borders and has an active community, supported by a well regarded primary school, village shop and village hall. Just 3 miles to the south east lies the thriving market town of Diss, with a good number of independent specialist shops and businesses providing a wide variety of goods and services, including three national brand supermarkets. The town has well regarded schooling, good sporting and leisure facilities and a wide range of social activities. Diss railway station lies on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street mainline, a journey to London taking around 90 minutes and the beautiful cathedral city of Norwich with its international airport lies 25 miles to the north. 

The Property Listed as Grade II, The Elms is constructed of timber frame which is believed to date back to the early 1600s. The straw thatch was replaced in 2002 and has recently been combed, re-ridged and re-wired. Inside, the ceiling heights are high, denoting a house of stature and period details include moulded ceiling beams, mullion windows and doors with original latches and hinges.

The current owners have painstakingly maintained and improved the house and it now presents as a most comfortable home with all modern conveniences. There are three reception rooms, two with inglenook fireplaces and woodburning stoves and a fitted kitchen with pamment floor, integrated double oven and electric hob. A large utility room has space for further appliances and houses the boiler. There are two bathrooms, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor and there is scope to create an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom and reconfigure the family bathroom to create a smaller bathroom and a landing if required. The attic room would easily convert into additional accommodation subject to the necessary planning permissions. 

Outside A shingled driveway with five bar gate leads up to the side of the property and the double garage. The boundaries are either fenced or hedged and could easily be made animal safe. Both the front and rear gardens are laid to lawn and include a variety of fruit trees, a vegetable patch, patio area and small pond. Overall the property stands in 0.43 acre (0.176 ha).
