Have your say

Beams and exposed brick fireplaces are among the original features that create much of the charm and character of Smithfield Cottage.

This attractive property, in a sought-after location along Gayton Road, Lynn, is on the market with Millsopps for £174,950.

It is big enough for a family home. There is a sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and an exposed brick fireplace with an inset cast iron log burner which is available by separate negotiation.

The kitchen/breakfast room has matching oak-fronted base and wall units with a solid oak work surface, stripped wooden flooring, more exposed ceiling beams and another brick fireplace.

The bathroom is also on the ground floor and the four bedrooms are upstairs. Three of them have built-in wardrobes and the main bedroom has an exposed brick chimney breast. Two of the bedrooms have a deep storage cupboard which the present owner has considered converting into a shower room and toilet.

The cottage stands on a good-sized plot with gravel parking space at the front and an enclosed back garden which is mainly down to lawn. There are two brick stores and a detached store room which used to be used as a garage.

Westfield House, Wootton Road, Lynn, which is on the market for £299,950, is a detached four-bedroomed property with a fully-contained annexe on a plot which extends to more than a quarter of an acre.

The main house has a lounge with a fireplace, a separate dining rom, also with a fireplace, and with wood flooring, and a breakfast room with patio doors to the conservsatory which, in turn, leads to the back garden.

The kitchen has a range of units and work surfaces, tiled flooring, a breakfast bar and plenty of space for appliances.

The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom with a corner bath and shower attachment.

The annexe, accessed from the breakfast room, has a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

The property has a brick garage, parking space at the front and a back garden which has lawns, borders, mature trees, a patio and a greenhouse.

Our third Millsopps property is a much-improved detached three-bedroomed house at 1 Holly Close South Wootton, which is for sale with a price tag of £219,950 and has the bonus of having no onward chain.

It has been modernised by the current owners who have installed new flooring, kitchen, bathroom and conservatory and replaced the central heating boiler.

The lounge has double doors to the back garden and a cast iron fireplace with a living flame gas fire. There is a separate dining room and a kitchen with units, work surfaces and space for a range cooker and the other usual kitchen appliances. The conservatory has double-glazed windows, a tiled floor and patio doors to the back garden which is down to lawn with shrub and flower borders.

The three bedrooms are on the first floor together with a family bathroom.

This property also has a single garage, a driveway and a lawned front garden.
