Have your say

Wairoa is a fine late 17 Century Grade II listed detached cottage which has been sympathetically extended and upgraded over recent years.

It is beautifully located in Wattisfield Road, a country lane at Thelnetham, with far reaching rural views yet, being near the A143, it has good access to the south to Bury St Edmunds and north to Diss and Norwich.



At £475,000, it has four reception rooms and three to four bedrooms plus an annexe or studio, suitable for a multitude of uses.

The original element is of timber-frame construction with rendered elevations beneath a thatched gable roof, with a most sympathetic vernacular brick and tiled two-storey extension to the rear.

A great deal of consideration has been given to the fusion of new and old, both externally and internally.

The windows are treated timber casements with double glazed sealed units, there are oil fired central heating systems serving radiators to both the main house and the annexe.

The timber-frame part has period features including red brick fireplaces, exposed timbers and period doors.

The extension offers a farmhouse-style kitchen-breakfast room leading to the substantial garden room with views of the delightful cottage garden with a stunning countryside backdrop.

The annexe is finished to the same high standard as the main house and offers potential for working from home, separate accommodation, holiday lets or studio. The annexe currently has planning consent for business use.

The 4.8m by 2.9m master bedroom has a built-in double wardrobe and garden views to two sides. Its adjacent bathroom has a white Jacuzzi bath, pedestal basin, WC and tiled shower enclosure.

A second staircase leads to two more double bedrooms, one with en-suite W.C.
