Property Details


Mill Cottage, also known as The Cottage sits alongside Mill Road behind an area of front garden, in the heart of the village and with a south west facing rear elevation and garden. A short walk along the road into the village enables the owners to take advantage of the many clubs and organisations active in Occold including for example the WI, Flower Guild, Book Club and Exercise Classes. The village with the Beaconsfield Arms, supports a Primary School, and now the 2009 built Village Hall is being extended due to its popularity. Occold is only around 2-3 miles from Eye in addition to being just off the road to Debenham (and onto Woodbridge and Ipswich) and a pleasant 'scenic route' to Framlingham. The town of Eye provides extensive everyday shopping facilities along with Health Centre, Library, High School with Sixth Form Centre, restaurants and tea rooms which collectively appeal to a wide range of age groups.


Mill Cottage (aka The Cottage) requires extensive restoration and improvement but has the advantage of having been stripped internally with much of the dirty work already carried out. Furthermore, the building along with adjoining neighbour has been re-roofed. Being a good width, this attractive style of building has the potential to make up into a comfortable sized village house. The layout offers scope for the new owner to tweak the layout as the internal walls are in the main showing as studwork. Externally at the rear is evidence of a former extension providing scope, subject to Planning Permission to enlarge the footprint of the building. Mains services have been connected in the past but are currently disconnected.
