Property Details


Harleston is a thriving South Norfolk market town and a focal point within the Waveney Valley. Midway between Bungay and Diss the town is ideally placed for those wishing to travel throughout the region. The coast and Norwich are both easily reached within a forty minute drive and Diss is only fifteen minutes away, especially important as the mainline rail station provides a commuter service to London Liverpool Street in a journey time of around 90 minutes. The town itself offers an extensive range of shops catering for a wide variety of tastes and requirements. Being a main town serving a rural catchment area the shops and social facilities cater for the majority of everyday requirements and the active community will appeal to all age groups. For the family, all schools and pre-school facilities are on offer along with a variety of clubs and societies.


12 Gothic Close is a semi detached two bedroomed bungalow within an established and well regarded area on the outskirts of the town with open farmland at the end of the cul de sac. Typical of 1960's and 70's design the development is well spaced out with wide roadways and deep front gardens compared to the new houses of today. Internally, the property has a good circular flow by virtue of the hallway linking with the kitchen and main reception room. Two bedrooms lie to the rear with windows overlooking the good sized rear garden. As can be seen from the neighbouring properties, the bungalow offers scope to extend (subject to Planning Permission) and now generally requires modernisation and refurbishment although does include PVCu double glazing throughout. An original gas fired warm air heating system has been disconnected albeit with the Husqvarna remaining in place. We are informed Cadent have recently reconnected gas to the property in readiness for the new owner to install a modern gas radiator heating system and boiler. Of further note is the length of driveway leading to the classic sectional concrete garage and where a number of cars can be parked in tandem. No onward chain.

Entrance Hall

Approached via an initial recessed porch with outer PVCu door and inner glazed door opening to the reception area. The hall leads off toward the kitchen and includes built-in storage of shelved Cloaks cupboard, airing cupboard with hot water storage fitted with immersion heater and the aforementioned Husqvarna boiler cupboard. Access to loft space with drop down hatch and ladder.

Wet Room

Laid out with drained vinyl floor and Mira Advance shower along with pedestal wash basin and low level wc all designed to aid access and use. Wall mounted stainless steel railed radiator. Two windows suggest this space was originally a bathroom with adjacent separate WC which when combined typically provide good sized space.


The bungalow is set nicely back from the pavement and road with a lawned front garden and length of driveway leading to the sectional concrete GARAGE. The drive will accommodate a number of cars in tandem. The nicely mature rear garden is a particularly good size and offers scope for extending the accommodation as already mentioned. The garden is presently lawned and planted with a mixture of established borders, plants and shrubs.
