DESCRIPTION Jays Cottage dates back to the 19th Century with later additions and is constructed of brick with a pitched main roof, with well arranged accommodation on two floors and offering a great deal of flexibility. The rooms include entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, inner hall, family room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor, together with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and shower room on the first floor.

The vendors have created a super family home over the years and a particular feature is the double storey extension which was completed about 8 years ago, providing further bedroom accommodation and a first class kitchen with French doors opening out to the terrace area and garden beyond.

LOCATION Jays Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Caistor St Edmund between here and Framingham Earl where there are excellent local shopping and transport facilities. Access to the city of Norwich is good, being about 3 miles away. This is an excellent opportunity to live in one of the prime residential areas on the southern fringe of Norwich in a rural position with some privacy and wonderful views, particularly facing north-west looking out towards Norwich.

DIRECTIONS Proceed out of Norwich through Lakenham. Go over Lakenham bridge and carry on towards Caistor St Edmund. Turn left at the crossroads and the road then bears round to the left. Continue along, going up the hill, passing High Ash Farm on the right and the property will be seen on the left hand side.
