Property Description

Full description

An attractive Grade II listed cottage situated within this delightful semi-rural village, with large garden backing on to the River Blackbourne.

The Property

Situated within this well-regarded, semi-rural village, Granary Cottage is in fact the early 17th-century parlour wing of what would have been an original 16th-century farmhouse, built of timber-framed construction with rendered elevations underneath a peg-tiled roofline. The property boasts many attractive original features, with a lovely exposed timber frame, open fireplaces and some original wide oak floorboards.

These features, together with the adaptable and well-presented accommodation, create a comfortable and attractive period cottage, with the ground floor comprising a sitting room with open fireplace with a wood-burning stove, feature bread oven and storage cupboard (which was formerly the entrance porch to the house), together with open studwork leading up to the dining room. At the back of the house is a kitchen/breakfast room with pamment-tiled floors, Shaker-style kitchen with solid wood worktops, integrated oven, Belfast sink and space for a breakfast table, access to an inner lobby and bathroom, and staircase to the first-floor landing.

Of particular note is a large landing area which could easily be used as an occasional bedroom or study, with some stunning oak floorboards, storage cupboard and staircase to the second floor. The principal bedroom is a large L-shaped room with walk-in wardrobe, and a further double bedroom 2.

On the second floor is a further double bedroom.


The property is approached from the road onto a gravel driveway which leads to a large garage/workshop with power and light connected, measuring 17’5” x 10’10”.

The rear garden extends to around 160ft, which is largely in two parts with the immediate garden being a mature cottage garden with terraced seating area, stepping down to a large lawned garden with mature trees and shrubbery, which leads down to the River Blackbourne, which forms a lovely backdrop to the grounds, albeit on occasion it has been known to rise slightly to the lower part of the garden.


Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil-fired heating.


Fakenham Magna is convenient for Bury St Edmunds, where there are excellent shopping facilities. Thetford, which is 7 miles north, provides fast access to Norwich and London via the All/Mll.
