A whole house of lifestyles! This is a home with many options for a discerning buyer looking to enjoy a lovely country home within close proximity of the popular town of Diss.

Woolsey Bridge Farm is a haven of peace and tranquillity, with all the benefits of living in the country, and yet all the conveniences of living near a main line station to London. A delightful residence in the summer, with nearly three acres of land to enjoy; whilst in the winter, light a fire and settle into the cosy cottage living spaces, or entertain in front of the wood burning stoves in either sitting room or dining room. This unlisted farm house dating from1650 has a whole host of accommodation, making it a home with great flexibility. A large, separate annex adds to the options of the main house, which has previously been run as a successful B&B and international operatic music teaching practice. The character of the property permeates through every room - the living room with its large inglenook fireplace being a particularly special feature, and timber beams and exposed studs in many rooms.

We really recommend viewing this property to appreciate the layout, wonderful spaces offered (inside and out) and its full potential. The plot extends to nearly 3 acres and could be utilised for equestrian purposes with some investment - the annex having been converted from stables - but, as is, offers lovely gardens with hedges planted around the outer edges of the property to afford privacy; borders planted include a rose bed, and an orchard with a range of fruit trees. There is a gated vegetable garden with a soft fruit cage and five raised beds. Beyond the vegetable garden is an enclosed paddock which has access to the small river and Woolsey Bridge, where otters and kingfishers have been seen! In addition there is a summerhouse with a decking area and a wood fired pizza oven. There is also a potting shed and double garage with power and light fitted.

The property is close to the market town of Diss with schools, doctors, dentists, supermarkets and award winning pubs, cafes and restaurants; theatrical events at the newly refurbished Cornhall, churches and a weekly market - all under five minutes away in the car or within walking distance of the house.
