STEP INSIDE this extended, period farmhouse….. you won’t be disappointed! The flexible accommodation offers generous room sizes throughout, and character features that seamlessly combine with modern living, all within gardens of over half an acre.
With so much to offer, it’s difficult to choose where to start with this lovely home!
This deceptively spacious period farmhouse has been previously extended and now, having been considerably improved by our sellers to combine beautiful character features that fit seamlessly alongside modern styling. The accommodation itself is generous… with truly flexible space extending to over 2600 sqft; you could choose to have three, four, or even five double bedrooms as desired, and with annexe potential, it would support multi-generational living.
Upon entering the porch through the stable-style door, you find yourself in a bright and welcoming hallway, passing the utility room on your right before coming into a fabulous reception hall; the central point of this great home, and from which the rooms flow beautifully. To your left, a few steps lead up to a double bedroom; currently used as a sitting room, this could of course be a study or playroom if preferred. Adjacent is a cloakroom/WC. Ahead of you is the extremely generous living room, complete with exposed beams and a wonderful inglenook fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. A second door leads you into the modern fitted kitchen, which in turn is open through to the spacious dining room, and then back to the reception hall. Additionally, there is another large reception room off the living room, with feature decorative stove, dual aspect windows, and double doors opening to a sunken, curved patio terrace.
Upstairs, and off a landing with seating space, you will find the master bedroom which benefits from not only an en-suite shower room, but his and hers walk-in wardrobes, and some wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and towards ancient woodland. Bedroom Two also has an en-suite shower room and built-in storage. Bedroom Three would make a lovely guest or teenagers suite as it was formerly two rooms, and could of course be reinstated as such if preferred. To complete the accommodation you have a fabulous, spacious bathroom featuring a slipper bath and a separate shower cubicle.
Set within well-maintained gardens of over 1/2 an acre, you approach the property over a private road, driving into a gated parking and turning area that could easily fit 8-10 vehicles. A hand gate within the Forsythia hedge opens to a gravel path leading to the entrance porch. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, and enclosed by hedging and fence panels, featuring planted beds and borders and numerous mature trees and shrubs and various seating areas where you can relax and enjoy the garden and birdlife, or perhaps you like to entertain; if so the covered pergola is perfect for outdoor dining. Adjoining the house is a range of small out-buildings, one of which houses the oil-fired central heating boiler, and nicely concealed by hedging there is also a wood store and garden shed.
Last, but by no means least is the location… Rural yet not isolated, nestled between the market town of North Walsham and the ancient woodland and hamlet of Westwick.
Just 1.5 miles to the north, North Walsham is a large market town ideally located for access to the North Norfolk coast and the Broads National Park and a short commute to Norwich, by car or train. It is a bustling town with a strong local community, supermarkets, pubs & restaurants, schooling for all ages and a host of local amenities, and a train station.
The vibrant city of Norwich is just a 13 mile drive to the south, a convenient commute by either road or rail.
