Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire this extended detached cottage situated on the edge of the popular village of Horstead, the property enjoys a generous plot with wonderful rural views, and is offered for sale with no onward chain.

The accommodation is arranged to provide three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, with two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom and conservatory on the ground floor.

The cottage, which would benefit from some sympathetic updating, enjoys oil fired central heating to radiators, a fireplace in the sitting room, and a lovely south-facing garden to the rear.

Agent's Note: We understand from the Vendors that the land to the south of the garden, which extends to approximately two acres, had previously been rented by them. Please ask us for further details. 

LOCATION Horstead is a Norfolk village situated approximately 7 miles north of the city of Norwich and close to the villages of Hoveton and Horning. The bridge over the river Bure divides Horstead from the neighbouring village of Coltishall.

The village has a popular public house and the ruined water mill set in tranquil river meadows is a particular landmark. Just over the bridge in Coltishall there are a number of independent shops, a butchers and a petrol filling station. There are also two further public houses, one set by the river.

OUTSIDE The cottage occupies a generous plot, extending to approximately half an acre (subject to measured survey).

The cottage sits towards the front of the plot, with a gravelled area and driveway providing off road parking space for two vehicles. There is potential to increase the provision of off road parking by extending the driveway to the right hand side of the property, which is currently an area housing timber garden store sheds.

A pathway down the right hand side of the cottage leads past the oil tank and into the wonderful rear garden, which is south-facing and enjoys far reaching views to the rear.

The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and includes a paved patio area, a selection of mature trees and shrubs, and a timber summer house.

As mentioned earlier in the description, we understand that the Vendors have had use of the neighbouring two acres of land, and as such the rear garden is not enclosed. You will see temporary posts in the ground which indicate the approximate boundary. 

REFERRALS Acorn Properties are pleased to recommend a variety of local businesses to our customers.

In most instances, these recommendations are made with no financial benefit to Acorn Properties.

However, if we refer our clients to our trusted local Solicitors or Financial Services, Acorn Properties may receive a 'referral fee' from these local businesses.

If a referral to our trusted local solicitors is successful, Acorn Properties receive a referral fee of £100 - £180 following the successful completion of the relevant sale or purchase.

There is no obligation for any of our clients to use our recommended solicitors, but we find the existing relationships we have with these firms can be beneficial to all parties.

Acorn Properties may also refer our clients to one of our two local mortgage advisors.

For each successful referral Acorn Properties will receive an introducer's fee which is between 25 - 30% of the net initial commission/broker fee received by the advisor. Again there is no obligation for our clients to use our recommended mortgage services.

Please feel free to ask us if you would like any further information regarding our recommended solicitors or mortgage advisors, and the arrangements we have with each.
