A four-bedroom detached cottage with a ‘secret’ garden in the popular market town of Hingham, near Attleborough, is up for sale for a guide price of £900,000. 

Green Cottage was originally built around the late 18th century and has been sympathetically restored and extended. The conversion has almost doubled the size of the property, which now offers plenty of space for family living. 

“The cottage has a range of beautiful stand-out features, which complement the original,” said selling agent TW Gaze. 

These include herringbone brickwork, engineered oak flooring and reclaimed solid latch doors. 

On the ground floor, an entrance lobby leads to two large reception rooms – a sitting room and a day room – which are separated by a two-way fireplace with an inset beam above a wood-burning stove.

A door from the day room opens to the bespoke fitted kitchen, which is open to the family room.

Bi-fold doors from this room, which is ideal for entertaining, lead to the patio in the south-facing rear garden.

There's a lobby off the family room, which leads to a utility room and a shower room. The lobby includes a handy walk-in cupboard. 

Upstairs, there’s a vaulted landing leading to an inner landing area. 

There are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath on the first floor.

The large principal suite features a spacious bedroom, en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle, as well as a large dressing room which could be used as a nursery or study. 

To the front of the property, Green Cottage is approached via double electric gates which open onto a large gravel driveway.

The driveway leads to a detached brick and ‘Suffolk clad’ garage block with electric roller doors. A room to the right of the garage, which is currently used as a gym, has potential as a home office.
