Full description

Tenure: Freehold

17th century cottage with later additions and alterations


The sought after village of Hempnall has a post office and store, butcher and delicatessen, doctors' surgery, garage and primary school. Secondary schooling is available at the larger village of Long Stratton whilst the town of Bungay, approximately 8 miles, provides good local shopping, restaurants, cafés and bars. Norwich is approximately 8½ miles to the north and can be approached via either the A140 trunk road or via Saxlingham Nethergate and Stoke Holy Cross.


Lower Croft is a charming timber framed cottage with many exposed timbers believed to date back to the 17th century with later additions and alterations. The property was originally bought by the present family in 1970 and has been maintained from that time although it would be fair to say that the property would now benefit from some improvements and updating. The cottage is set in a good sized garden with useful outbuildings and is well placed for the village centre.

The cottage is situated in the centre of its own plot and is approached via a gravelled driveway which leads to a wide parking and turning area. There are outbuildings comprising a former cottage which is now in need of repair but provides useful storage and has electricity connected and an attached garage of block construction with twin opening doors. This building could provide the footprint for alternative uses such as a studio or workshop, subject to the normal planning consents being obtained. The grounds in all extend to 0.20 of an acre (est)

Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
