High House Farm is an impressive late Victorian country house set in mature grounds with magnificent trees in an unspoilt and secluded location. The house is believed to date from the 18th century but was extensively enlarged, altered and extended to create the existing house in 1881. The property retains many period features including fine marble fireplaces, large sash windows, cornicing and the original Victorian tiled floor in the staircase hall.
The house offers substantial accommodation which is well laid out, and includes a large kitchen/breakfast/
family room area which has been finished to a high specification with granite work surfaces, tiled floors, wood panelling and a 4 oven Aga. The house is both light and airy benefiting from high ceilings and large sash windows throughout.
Standing to the south of the house are a fine range of refurbished outbuildings of red brick elevations under pantiled roofs which could have potential for alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents. They offer tremendous scope for stabling, garaging or
conversion to further accommodation.
High House Farm stands in grounds extending to about 13.15 acres comprising lawns, courtyards and paddocks. The 2 principal paddocks are located to the south of the house and are bisected by the driveway whilst being post and rail fenced.
There are 2 further paddocks to the north east and north of the house. Much of the property is bordered by mature traditional Norfolk hedging, and there is a small spinney to the east of the house.
High House Farm is approached via a gravel driveway ending in a turning and parking area at the front of the house. To the west is a large expanse of lawn and there are several magnificent mature broad leaf trees
including copper beech, horse chestnut and walnut.
To the south east of the house there is a further area of lawned garden bordered by beech hedging, which adjoins a paved terrace area which gives access to the back door and the rear hall. The paddocks and
outbuildings could suit the equestrian enthusiast.
There is a separate access off the main drive to the outbuildings and land behind the house.
High House Farm occupies a fine elevated position set amongst gently undulating open countryside with views over its own gardens and farmland.

Holt, the attractive Georgian market town, provides the renowned Gresham's public school for boys and girls from pre-prep to sixth form.
