Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Kenninghall is a very popular south Norfolk village and East and West Church Street, which lie either side of the church, are considered to be of particular merit having had very little alteration over the years preserving its wonderful period character. Within Kenninghall there is a well run stores with post office, doctor's surgery, junior school, church and other small businesses together with The Red Lion public house which is within walking distance of Ruby Allum's Cottage. The countryside surrounding Kenninghall is gently rolling with expanses of community woodland making the village feel nestled within the countryside. It is a very well placed village with easy access to wider facilities. The A11 is only a couple of miles away and now has a dual carriageway all the way to the A14, making Newmarket and Cambridge within commutable distance. There is a mainline rail service at Diss (8 miles) on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. Bury St Edmunds is 18 miles or so and the fine cathedral city of Norwich with its wide array of cultural facilities and international airport is just 23 miles away. 

The Property Thought to have once been run as a fish smokery, this delightful home occupies a sought after position within the conservation area of this highly popular village. The house presents a handsome Georgian façade with tall sash windows and has been extended within the last 30 years to create a good sized family home. The front door opens into an inviting sitting room with large inglenook fireplace inset with a woodburning stove and leading off is a study and also two doors, one of which reveals the staircase to the first floor and the other, the staircase to the dry cellar. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke oak units made by a local carpenter, specifically designed to harmonise well with the age of the property and incorporates an integral fridge and freezer. A smaller woodburning stove is set into the fireplace and this heats the kitchen and snug area. From the snug, a pair of part glazed doors open into a rear lobby which gives access to the garden and the utility room/wc where there is space for a washing machine. On the first floor are three bedrooms, two with sash windows and the third bedroom has cottage style dormer windows. Both the bathroom and shower room adjoin this bedroom and there is therefore scope to create an en-suite facility if required.  

Outside Brick steps lead through a garden gate into the gardens of Ruby Allum's Cottage, which is bordered to the front with a rather fine brick wall. The remaining boundaries are hedged and fenced and the garden within is divided into two sections by a rose covered pergola and shrubs. The gardens have been professionally landscaped, are well cared for, and incorporate a patio area and garden shed. Whilst there is no designated parking area, there is, however, ample parking in the street.
