Property Description

Full description

Having been significantly upgraded and enhanced to an extremely high specification this most spacious and characterful cottage is of a comparable size to a two bedroom cottage. Boasting a large plot enjoying a south westerly aspect with extensive off-road parking space. No onward chain



Located within the attractive and traditional village of Hapton, the property is found to the outskirts of a rural but yet not isolated village being just four miles to the north west of Long Stratton and just 9 miles to the south of Norwich. Hapton is surrounded by the beautiful and unspoilt rural countryside close to many amenities and facilities found within Long Stratton. For any potential purchasers specifically seeking a holiday let or weekend retreat, then this idyllic cottage is an excellent investment, being just 29 miles to the west of Southwold on the east coast. 


The property is a 19th century semi-detached cottage having been the subject of a significant refurbishment programme that has now been enhanced and upgraded to an extremely high specification throughout. There has been careful planning in retaining as much character and charm within the property as possible whilst combining all of the luxuries of 21st century living, with great attention to detail throughout. The property was formerly a two bedroom cottage, however has now been turned into a particularly large one bedroom cottage and offers an expanse of living space. There is the scope to further increase the property’s square footage (as was originally intended before a change of circumstances) and now leaves an excellent opportunity for any oncoming purchaser to do so, (subject to any of the necessary consents). 
Particular notice is drawn to the high specification within including the bespoke built kitchen, revealed period features, underfloor heating and inglenook fireplace etc.
