Situated along the meandering RIVER TAS, upon an undulating RURAL LANDSCAPE, south of the county’s historic city centre, is the south Norfolk village of Stoke Holly Cross. The village’s landmark watermill in its IDYLLIC SETTING was leased to the industrious Colman family during the early nineteenth century and formed an integral part of a then extensive factory site understood to have produced their founding mustard products. Later that century, the business re-located and the mustard packing mill was converted into four cottages for the Dunston Estate workers.
Stood well back from the passing road Mill Cottages are approached over a short-unmade lane which provides near access to the property’s CARPORT. Partially screened behind a low brick wall and natural hedging, a paved pathway bordered by a pretty COTTAGE STYLE GARDEN leads to a covered entrance. To the rear a small COURTYARD leads an immediate terraced BRICK OUTBUILDING and a shared pathway beyond the outbuildings to a PRACTICAL GRASSY AREA with right of access and a further elevated and more private WALLED GARDEN both belonging to the property.
Steeped in history and a wealth of PERIOD FEATURES the cottage enters beneath its covered entrance into a warming LOUNGE with separate doors to a staircase rising to the first floor and a KITCHEN DINING ROOM with a practical PORCH that opens to the rear courtyard and beyond. To the first floor, separate doors from the landing open to a FAMILY BATHROOM and TWO BEDROOMS, both with fitted wardrobes.
The property is further complemented in its quiet village location, in near site of the STOKE MILL restaurant and a short distance to the WILDEBEEST restaurant, the FISH and CHIP SHOP, POST OFFICE and PRIMARY SCHOOL. Beyond the village the arterial A140 is around a mile, the dualled SOUTHERN BYPASS two miles and the CITY CENTRE five miles.
