Hollyhocks was built in approximately 1850, as a railwayman’s cottage out of red Norfolk Carrstone bricks to the front and traditional Norfolk flint to the rear. Hollyhocks Cottage provides an exceptionally comfortable stay, all year round. It is warm and cosy. The cottage has been tastefully renovated and refurbished throughout with all the comforts one would expect in the 21st century so that it is ideal for modern day living. At the same time, it has retained many original period features, such as exposed oak beams, inglenook fireplace and exposed brickwork.
LOUNGE DINER KITCHEN
The open plan lounge/diner is separated by a half height partition with aspect towards the fully fitted oak kitchen. Appliances include a washing machine, electric induction hob, fan assisted oven/grill, microwave & fridge.
Upstairs, there are 2 double bedrooms (one with an oak double bed and the second with 2 pine single beds, ideal for children or other guests) and a Bathroom fitted with traditional white enamel bath with electric shower over. Bed linen is provided.
There is oil-fired central heating and double-glazing throughout (so the cottage is as cosy throughout the winter as it is during the summer months).
The lounge is furnished with cosy upholstered lounge furniture with 23” flat panel TV with freeview digital channels, DVD player and amplifier feeding sound through separate external speakers.
Outside there is a pretty, tastefully planted courtyard garden featuring hollyhocks as well as other colourful plants depending on the season, alongside a paved patio and shingle driveway for off street parking for one car. There is also a secluded suntrap facing south west complete with cast iron bistro table and chairs and a wooden bench.
The cottage is furnished throughout with oil paintings and water colours many depicting Norfolk scenes. There are pure wool rugs in the lounge.
