The Property
A rare opportunity to acquire a semi-detached thatched cottage (not listed) situated on a quiet no-through road on the edge of this popular village. Over recent years, Jasmine Cottage has been extensively refurbished and extended and now provides traditional country cottage living with flexible accommodation ideal for a weekend retreat or family home. Many fine period features have been retained including an open red-brick inglenook fireplace, an exposed timber frame, open vaulted timbered ceilings and original wide floorboards.

On entering this quintessential cottage you will find yourself at the Aga kitchen which has lovely views over the garden. To the centre of the room is space for a breakfast table, with plenty of wall and base cabinets to either side of the room. The kitchen is fitted with a built in sink and a 'Redfyre' oil fired stove, inset sink and integral appliances. The room is lovely and light, with a skylight, inset spotlights and has quarry tiles to the floors. By stepping down from the kitchen into the sitting room, you will find a well spaced room with a redbrick inglenook fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. The winding staircase leads up to the first floor bedroom which has exposed timbers and solid wooden floors. A further doorway leads into another bedroom, which has pleasant views across the rear gardens. Back on the ground floor is a further double bedroom and family bathroom.

By entering the gardens via twin five bar gates, you will find the shingle parking area for up to three vehicles. Beyond the parking area are the well stocked gardens and lawns which proceed up to the rear boundary. In the summer the garden really comes alive with colour from a variety of specimen flowers, shrubs and plants, making it a gardeners delight. At the back of the house is a enclosed patio area with box hedging directly outside the kitchen patio doors. A number of storage sheds are located in the gardens including a timber store and an old brick privy which houses the original outside toilet. Beyond the gardens are open arable fields and in all, the plot extends to 0.16 acres (sts).

The property is situated on the highly desirable 'no through' road of Back Street, Garboldisham. The village itself is situated on the Norfolk/Suffolk border with good access onto the A1066. The village has a number of small services including a post office, village store, community centre, parish church and a village school recently awarded 'Outstanding' status by Ofsted. Further facilities are available in the neighbouring towns of Diss, Bury St. Edmunds and Thetford. The village is situated on a bus route to all of these towns with further connections to Cambridge, Ipswich, Norwich and London by train.

From Diss, follow the A1066 westbound towards Thetford, passing through the villages of Roydon, South Lopham and Bressingham before reaching Garboldisham. Once in the village turn right at the Fox Inn (currently shut) and immediately left onto Church Road. After the primary school turn right onto Back Street, where the property will be located at the end of the lane on the left.
