Location Lazy Acre is situation along the quiet road of Fen Street in the popular village of Hopton. The village has a good range of day-to-day facilities including a mini market, public houses, church, doctors, dentist, plant centre and primary school (Ofsted 'outstanding'). With its location, Hopton provides good access to a choice of further education in the state and private sectors in Suffolk and Norfolk. The surrounding countryside is very attractive and offers numerous walks with Knettishall Heath just a short distance away where three of the country's long distance walks meet. Hopton is well placed for a number of larger towns and cities including Bury St Edmunds (12 miles); Diss (10 miles); Norwich (27 miles), and Cambridge (42 miles) with the journey much easier now with the A11 fully dualled and there are train stations at Diss and Thetford with commuting access to London (Liverpool Street and Kings Cross).  

The Property This generously sized, well presented chalet bungalow has recently been re-decorated and re-carpeted throughout and offers light and airy modern interiors. The living room benefits from a recently installed, new woodburning stove to the fireplace and enjoys good levels of natural light. Leading off is a spacious dining area with practical vinyl flooring and French doors to the rear garden. The kitchen is a good size and incorporates an electric cooking range and extractor hood and there is space for a dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. As is typical of a chalet style property, the majority of rooms are on the ground floor. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor which have ample storage space built into the eaves. 

Outside The property is situated on a quiet road in Hopton with a plot size of 0.44ac (0.178ha). A long private driveway leads up to the front of the house with both a good sized front lawn and parking in front of the property. The driveway also follows down the left of the house to a gated and private patio with both a large detached double garage measuring 7.60m x 7.33m and room to park a few cars. To the rear of the garage is the deceptively big lawn which follows to a sizeable area of fenced off woodland. The lawn is fenced off throughout. The double garage also has a staircase which leads to a long room which is currently being used as an office with a good amount of storage space.

The property faces east and the garden west enjoying the light all day from the front in the morning and to the rear in the evening.
