Sitting room, dining room, study area, kitchen, lobby and bathroom. Two bedrooms on the first floor, one with dressing area. Third bedroom on the second floor. Good size garden and outbuildings. Ample parking. 

Location The property is situated in a lovely rural position adjacent to open countryside. Although officially in the Parish of Horham, Frances Cottage is located in a hamlet adjoining the small rural village of Athelington. St Peters Church, Athelington is just 200 metres from the property. Horham itself benefits from a well respected store and post office (renowned for stocking nearly everything of need), a community centre, St Mary's church and Horham Baptist Chapel, which offers a variety of community activities such as Sunday School, Brownies, toddler group, youth club, holiday club, and so on. During World War Two Horham was home to an American air base, the 95th Bomb Group, and the original social club has been faithfully restored and now offers an informative museum (the Red Feather Club) which opens during the last weekend of every month.

Close by is the larger village of Stradbroke, which offers local shops and services including a bakery, butchers, two public houses, a medical centre, village hall, children's play area, hairdressing salon, library, Church of England VC Primary School and Stradbroke High School. There is also a sports centre with a swimming pool, gym and tennis courts, as well as numerous clubs and societies, including a popular cricket club, football clubs, tennis club and bowls club.

The historic market town of Eye is just 5 miles from the property offering a wider variety of services.

The South Norfolk town of Diss, with Morrisons, Tesco and Aldi supermarkets, lies about 11 miles to the north-west and from here there are Inter-City trains to Norwich and London's Liverpool Street station. Framlingham, with its medieval castle, is 9.5 miles to the south, and the Heritage Coast, with the popular centres of Southwold, Walberswick and Dunwich, is about 20 miles to the east. The county town of Ipswich lies about 21 miles to the south, and Norwich is about 30 miles to the north. 

Description Frances Cottage is believed to date originally from around the 15th Century and is of timber frame construction with rendered and colourwashed elevations under a pantile roof.  The cottage now requires full refurbishment and modernisation and, this is an exciting project for an incoming purchaser as the cottage has been stripped back to the bare wattle and daub and lathe and plaster and the inglenook fireplace has been exposed. It does, however, benefit from oil fired central heating and double glazing.

Outside the property has the benefit of a good sized garden to the side and planning exists for a sizeable extension to the side for a double garage and office.  Please refer to the agents for copies of the plans.
