Prominent three storey Grade II listed cottage in need of full restoration.

Rayleigh House has been in the same family ownership for decades coming for sale now for the fist time in many years. Untouched, this prominent Grade II property is believed to be of 18th Century origins and included a shop. The tall, timber framed rough cast building sits beneath a steeply pitched roof originally thatched and now covered in corrugated cement bonded asbestos sheeting. The accommodation is arranged either side of a substantial chimney stack and includes two ground floor reception rooms with three bedrooms above and two spacious attic rooms. Both kitchen and bathroom can be found within a single storey section to the rear. Requiring full restoration the property would benefit of all the character features being restored, for example fireplaces, character doors and pamment flooring. This would be subject to Listed Building Consent and/or Planning Permission and Building Regulation Approval. The property offers great scope with the beauty of being adapted to create an historic family home. Rickinghall and the adjoining village of Botesdale form a most attractive location and street scene comprising varied and interesting period houses and cottages. Offering a range of facilities to include a well stocked Co Op supermarket, health centre and dentist practice.
