Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase a most impressive Grade II listed two/three bedroom cottage oozing character. Well located within the popular and desirable village only two miles to the east of Diss. Boasting two reception rooms, two/three bedrooms, cellar, period features and NO ONWARD CHAIN.


Situation - Located within the desirable village of Scole, which lies on the South Norfolk border two miles to the east of Diss. The village is steeped in history with many period and attractive properties and has proved to be a most popular location having been bypassed many years ago. There is still a strong and active local community and the benefit of good local amenities to hand with a village shop, public house/hotel (The Scole Inn), school, church and garage. A further more extensive range of day to day amenities and facilities can be found in the historic market town of Diss including a mainline railway station with regular services connecting to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich. For the motorist there is easy access along the A140 to Norwich approximately 23 miles to the north and Ipswich approximately 25 miles to the south. 


The property is a deceptively large two/three bedroom mid-terraced Grade II listed cottage believed to date back to the early 1600's. The cottage is of massive oak timber frame construction (most of which is still revealed) with a Victorian red brick facade and is believed to have once been in association with The Scole Inn. In more recent years the property has been significantly enhanced and upgraded whilst retaining much of its character and charm. Most unusual for this age of property is the vast floor to ceiling height at ground floor level, further accentuating the feeling of space combined with bright, airy and generous size room proportions creating comfortable living. Over the years the property has been well maintained with the benefit of modern and contemporary fixtures and fittings with particular notice drawn to the kitchen and bathroom, which are in an excellent condition. The accommodation is arranged over four floors, in essence, a large cellar at lower ground floor level (in excellent condition), two reception rooms, one with a most impressive inglenook fireplace, kitchen, bathroom and entrance hall at ground floor level. At first floor level there are two well proportioned bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an exposed red brick fireplace. At second floor level there is a loft conversion providing space for another bedroom or office. 

Externally the outside space lies to the rear where there is a courtyard garden creating an excellent space for alfresco dining. A large brick outbuilding is found to the rear boundary, measuring 1.82m x 1.85m (6' x 6') which has been recently modernised and has the benefit of electric connected and space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. The area within is of a good size and could perhaps be used as a large utility room or office/study area if required.
