The Property

Fairfax House is a one off property and new to the market. The property is split over three levels and does offer versatile living accommodation with light and airy accommodation but is need of modernisation but has a huge amount of potential for someone with vision. The front door welcomes you in to the entrance hall with a double bedroom off to your right with dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens. Access is also gained of the entrance hall to the double garage. There is a utility room with a range of wall and floor units and worktop surface and a door to the side. Off here you will find the boiler room and a separate wet room with a shower, WC and wash hand basin. Stairs from the entrance hall take you to the upper level and into a magnificent lounge with a vaulted ceiling and patio doors to the rear garden with fantastic views. This room is a joy to behold and you get a great feeling of light and space. From here there are steps to the next level and into the dining room area which overlooks the lounge, again a light and airy area. From here you will proceed into the kitchen with a range of wall and floor units with worktop surface around and a double oven and space for appliances with dual aspect windows, again over the gardens. From the kitchen you will proceed into what effectively would be the landing and gives access to the family bathroom with a bath, low level WC and wash hand basin and also to the two double bedrooms.


You will approach the property via double gates to a large gravelled car parking area and to the double garage with an electric door; and door to the entrance hall. Proceed to the right through a wrought iron gate into the wonderful front garden with mature trees, shrubs and flower borders around. There is access to the rear garden from the left of the double garage or from the front garden. The rear garden is again a wonderful mature area with trees and shrubs around giving privacy and seclusion. Access to the balcony is to the side
and an ideal area for alfresco dining with views over the gardens.


The property is situated on the edge of the village, but is a short walk into Palgrave and Diss. The walk into Diss only takes around 10-15 minutes via The Lows, which is a pleasant pedestrian only walkway which links Palgrave to the town. The town itself has many day-to-day facilities from Doctors to Bakers and from Cafes to Supermarkets. The town has schooling up to sixth form level, a renowned rugby club, football club and excellent business parks. The railway station provides frequent trains to London Liverpool Street Station. Further afield are the cities and towns of Norwich, Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds
