SITUATION&LOCATION This charming period detached cottage known as 'Lawn Villa' is a well positioned detached family home centrally located within the popular and sought after Norfolk village of Hockwold.
Believed to have been originally built as a thatched granary, Lawn Villa was subsequently converted into a residential dwelling circa 1802 and offers a wealth of charm and character throughout. The cottage has been improved and updated over the years and benefits from oil fired central heating. There is a well fitted kitchen, a large lounge/diner with two fireplaces and three first floor bedrooms as well as a bathroom. All casement windows have within the last 12 months been replaced with UPVC sealed unit double glazing. A particular feature of the property is the large established walled garden which extends to approximately a third of an acre (subject to survey) and provides a high degree of privacy.
This property has remained in the same ownership for many years and has always been cared for and maintained over the years by the vendor. There is however potential for further improvement and the sale of this lovely home represents a unique opportunity to buyers seeking an individual home of character in this sought after village.
