A PRETTY COUNTRY COTTAGE, backing onto OPEN FIELDS TO THE REAR and located on the outskirts of the PICTURESQUE RURAL RIVERSIDE VILLAGE of Buxton; separated from the neighbouring village of Lammas only by the meandering River Bure and once home and now the resting place of Anna Sewell, author of BLACK BEAUTY.
The cottage affords a RARE OPPORTUNITY to enjoy a POSITIVELY REMOTE LIFESTYLE amongst a collection of similar cottages that were originally built to support the teaching staff of the neighbouring, then education centre during the mid-nineteen forties. The neighbouring site was demolished and redeveloped into a secure mental health hospital at the end of the last century, however, now remains disused since closing in 2017.
Located along a NO-THROUGH ROAD, the cottage rests behind a picket fence and is approached between a pair of timber five-bar gates that open to a broad shingle expanse which provides AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING as well as access to a TIMBER GARAGE and a COVERED CARPORT. A SOUTH-EASTERLY FACING GARDENERS PARADISE beckons to the rear, encompassing various seating areas set amongst a WELL THOUGHT OUT and a WELL-TENDED, MATURE COTTAGE GARDEN, with hedged FIELD VIEWS TO THE REAR, TIMBER SHEDS and a WORKSHOP.
The cottage enters beneath a covered storm porch into a welcoming entrance hallway, with separate doors leading to a kitchen and onwards to a PRACTICAL UTILITY and SHOWER ROOM. From the hallway a further door leads into a dining room with an opening into the FAMILY LOUNGE and double doors to the rear facing sunroom. To the first floor a landing leads to a family bathroom and three bedrooms, each with BUILT-IN WARDROBES.
Life at the property is further complemented by its remote setting; just under two miles to the SERVICES and SCHOOLING in the village of Buxton and around four miles to market town of AYLSHAM, less than eight miles to the NORFOLK BROADS capital of WROXHAM and under thirty minutes to picturesque NORTH NORFOLK COASTLINE or the heart of the county’s HISTORIC CITY OF NORWICH.
