Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location This pretty cottage with annex is set a little way outside Mellis on a quiet country lane with far reaching views across farmland. It is an ideal cottage to get away from the daily hubbub of life and yet it is also very convenient for a wide range of facilities with the small town of Eye just 3 miles away or the larger market town of Diss within 6 miles from where there is a mainline rail station to London in just 90 minutes.  

The Property This property is almost the quintessential chocolate box property with its cosy rooms, displayed timbers and open fireplace but it also has much more to offer with the detached annex studio which the current owners have just refurbished to a very good standard and provides an open plan kitchen/living room, two bedrooms and shower room.

The main house has a sizeable kitchen which extends into the conservatory making the room particularly bright. The living room has the exposed painted timbers and open fireplace and beside is the ground floor bedroom or study and the bathroom. The first floor has two further bedrooms with the main one having built-in cupboards beside the fireplace.

The property has planning consent passed for an extension and replacement of the conservatory under planning reference 0652/16 by Mid Suffolk Council.

This property would be ideal for the extended family, those wishing to work from home or perhaps those seeking an income, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. 

Agent´s Note Please be aware, as expected from a cottage of this age there is restricted head height in some places particularly in the living room, most of which is 5'10" but does however have one central beam that is 6" lower, please see photo. 

Outside The garden to the house is mainly to the side and laid to grass with hedge boundaries. There is a lovely sitting area between the house and the annex with views across the farmland and is an ideal spot to while away a summer's evening. The access to the cottage is across a short level track maintained by the owners which is an access to the farmer's field but little used. Overall the property is set within 0.083ha (0.21ac). 

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Solid fuel heating with back boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water to the house. The annex has hot water via an immersion heater and plugs for electric heating (not fitted). Please note that the services/appliances/central heating and heating system/plumbing and electrical installations have not been tested by the selling agents and the purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition and warranty of these items. 

Directions From Diss into Wortham and turn left signed to Mellis. Over the railway crossing and then turn right onto Earlsford Road. Continue for 0.6 mile and the cottage is on the right. 

Viewing Strictly by appointment with TW Gaze.
