Generous Sized Plot

Character Cottage

Garage and Parking

**£200,000 - £240,000** A stunning character cottage dating back from the late 1800s and offers a generous plot. Plus an excellent location close to Norwich Hospital.

Believed to date from the late 1800's Beck Hythe Cottage is a beautiful semi-detached cottage set on an extremely generous plot offering a nature's lovers delight. On entering the cottage offers a reception hallway and a beautiful open plan kitchen dining room with its original chimney breast and range. Original batten and brace cottage style door leads through to a staircase to first floor, door through to garden room and further door through to the sitting room set the rear of the cottage enjoying the beautiful garden views and has its original fireplace with inset log burner plus picture rail. Throughout the property benefits from having oil fired central heating with the benefit of the log burner. The first floor offers a total of two bedrooms, however, we believe the cottage could be further extended subject to relevant planning permission to create three bedrooms. A particular attractive feature of the first floor landing is its open area to the front of the cottage which really has created a superb little den or storage area with its own window this area could also be utilised to create a first floor bathroom, should that be desired. Offering a wealth of features including exposed timbers, batten and brace doors the guest bedroom has had both single or small double use. The master bedroom is a particularly pleasing room with original fireplace and rear aspect window to enjoy the stunning garden and ample space. Beck Hythe Cottage has its own garage and driveway parking in front for one vehicle in front. This beautiful rural setting is something to be treasured and internal viewing would be highly recommended to fully appreciate what this beautiful tucked away location cottage has to offer. The cottage is offered with the added advantage of no onward chain.
