Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Rose Cottage is very well set in the popular village of Hopton. The village has a good range of day-to-day facilities including a mini market, public houses, church, doctors, dentist, plant centre and primary school (Ofsted 'outstanding'). With its location, Hopton provides good access to a choice of further education in the state and private sectors in Suffolk and Norfolk. The surrounding countryside is very attractive and offers numerous walks with Knettishall Heath just a short distance away where three of the country's long distance walks meet. Hopton is well placed for a number of larger towns and cities including Bury St Edmunds (12 miles) Diss (10 miles), Norwich (27 miles), and Cambridge (42 miles) with the journey much easier now with the A11 fully dualled and there are train stations at Diss and Thetford with commuting access to London (Liverpool Street and Kings Cross). 

The Property Rose Cottage is an attractive period cottage with well planned and naturally bright accommodation. The living room has stripped pine floorboards and a wood burning stove set in a brick surround, the entrance hall is large enough to be used as a study area and has parquet flooring and exposed ceiling timbers. In the dining room there are also exposed ceiling timbers, a fireplace and a pamment tiled floor. The kitchen runs across the back of the cottage and has a deep fireplace with timber bressumer beam which houses the cooking range. The units are cream and in a simple Shaker style. The layout could be altered to create a better use of the space and allow room for a table. Ancillary areas provide good storage and working space, and there is a downstairs wc convenient for the gardener!

The first floor has a spacious landing and there are three bedrooms all capable of accommodating double beds. The cottage was originally four bedrooms but one has been used as a spacious shower room with modern fittings. The original bathroom is functional but perhaps dated in style. 

Outside There is a small area of garden to the front behind the cast railings and hedge. The shingled drive at the side allows parking for 4 cars and leads up to the former double garage which has been converted to use as office and storage areas (18'3 x 9'5 and 18' x 9'10) with plastered and painted walls and power connected. In addition, there is a log store and a general garden store, and a timber garden shed (needs some attention). Directly to the rear of the cottage is a patio which runs onto the garden which is laid mainly to grass with an ornamental pond and various trees including a magnificent flowering cherry. The rear garden measures around 85' deep x 60' wide and the plot overall is 0.074ha (0.18ac).
