Property Description

A superb former farmhouse with holiday let and outbuildings set in delightful grounds with rural views and a tennis court.

Riverside House is a wonderful residential property in the heart of the highly popular area of Wortham Ling near Diss. Located between an area of Special Scientific Interest and Roydon Fen, the house offers excellent levels of seclusion and enormous potential. The farmhouse has been extended and offers well-presented and highly versatile accommodation. The rooms are spacious and there is a brilliant flow making it perfect for entertaining. Of particular note is the large kitchen/dining room opening to a large garden room.

Externally there are a range of outbuildings and these include a well-appointed single storey holiday let with its own garden. They remainder of the buildings have been used by the current vendors for storage and as a commercial yard. However, it can be used for a variety of purposes subject to planning permission. There is enormous potential.

The land that comes with Riverside House is an absolute delight. It can easily be adapted to suit a variety of needs but the vendors have created meandering paths through a rewilding paddock, there is a coppicing wood and a large wild flower meadow with mown path around the perimeter. The principal area of the garden is laid to lawn with views over the meadow and the vendors have created a feature raised seating area for alfresco entertaining and to enjoy the sunsets. In addition there is the added benefit of a hard tennis court.

LOCATION The property is located just 2 miles from the thriving market town of Diss, with its historic mere and mainline railway connection to London Liverpool Street (90 mins). Norwich, Bury St. Edmunds and Ipswich are all approximately 20 miles distant, providing outstanding recreation, shopping and schooling opportunities. More locally, the property lies in the catchment area for Hartismere School at Eye, 5 miles, which has consecutively been rated as 'outstanding' by Ofsted (November 2014). The area is well served for sport, with golf at Diss and Thetford; flat racing at Newmarket, point-to-point at Ampton and National Hunt at Fakenham.
