Property Details


Myrtle Cottage sits in a remarkable location, hidden away towards the end of a single width No Through Lane with grass growing up the middle and two cottage properties for neighbours along with farm buildings at nearby Red House Farm. The house sits back from the track and is approached on foot across a footbridge and fields to rear and side. The area is well served by a network of lovely footpaths across the fields giving easy access to Denham and Hoxne for the post office stores, pub and primary school along with Eye and the wide variety of facilities on offer. Eye, being the principal shopping/daily needs location, is fortunate in having supermarkets, butchers, a baker, chemist and a variety of other shops and businesses allowing the area to be essentially self sufficient. A Health Centre, Primary School and High School with Sixth Form combine to appeal to a wide ranging age group. Moreover at Diss, approximately 5 miles distant, a mainline rail station has commuter services to London Liverpool Street in a journey time of around 90 minutes.


Harrison Edge sold Myrtle Cottage to the current owner back in 2016 when the property was occupied but verging on dereliction. Overgrown, hardly visible from the track and requiring serious investment this Grade II Listed cottage metamorphosed into the property we see today. Now forming an L'shape plan a sizeable extension having been added to the rear, the ground floor not only offers the renovated timbered front sections but also a tremendous kitchen and breakfast room arrangement. Further more, the extension incorpoated a utility and shower room along with a large master bedroom above. Three timbered spaces extend across the front of the building indicating two if not three earlier periods and now providing sitting room, dining room and study type space. Upstairs, two staircases serve three bedrooms, stylish bathroom with shower enclosure along with en suite cloakroom to a lovely vaulted bedroom with windows on three aspects. As one would expect, the renovations have incorporated wiring , plumbing heating (to include underfloor heating throughout the ground floor) along with joinery and plastering etc. New bespoke windows were made to replace the old. Outside, the now cleared grounds serve as garden space within picket fencing on all four sides with the approach across a footbridge leading from the parking area and double garage area to the very front. Having turned off the Eye/Hoxne road to South Green, the tarmac road peters out and with forks to two neighbouring farms the track to Myrtle Cottage carries on passing one neighbour.. The track continues past part of the farm onto Myrtle Cottage before carrying on to one further property beyond. This may be of interest to those wanting to be rural and hidden away but not totally isolated and away from civilisation. It is worth noting hard wired fibre Broadband is connected to the property putting to shame many village and town settings.
