A substantial period property situated in the heart of one of East Anglia's most picturesque and highly sought-after villages. Thought to date back to the 17th century yet remarkably unlisted, the property contains a fine array of notable character features yet remains well-suited to modern living. With a combination of generous residential space together with a retail unit with large window display onto the high street, the property provides an exciting opportunity for a purchaser to run their own enterprise or inherit the property with an established business and immediate income potential or alternatively convert back into one dwelling (subject to any necessary consent). A total of two reception rooms, three bedrooms and three bathrooms are served by a spacious AGA kitchen/dining room and there is the additional benefit of a large fully private enclosed rear garden and ample off-road parking with the potential to create further if required. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
