Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the beautiful village of Saham Toney, Norfolk is this stunning and unique family home that offers spacious family living, an independent two bedroom cottage lending itself to entertaining on a grand scale or would make an ideal holiday let and games room in the grounds. The mill itself benefits from two large reception rooms, five bedrooms, one of which has en-suite facilities and kitchen/dining room.

There is nothing ordinary about Saham Mill. Through a wide and welcoming reception hall you will be amazed the moment you step into this family home with a circular drawing room boasting wood burning stove and exposed beams opening onto the curved living room that enjoys views over the landscaped garden and a spacious kitchen/dining room. The mill dates back to the 1800's. It was converted to a private residence in the 1900's with the likes of the Twinings family and Shakin' Stevens making it their home over the years as informed by the vendor.

To the front of the property is a sweeping gravel driveway offering ample parking and leads to the independent annexe/holiday cottage with access to the rear garden at both sides. The rear garden offers a terraced area for alfresco dining with steps leading down to the landscaped garden with water feature and flanked by mature trees. At the end of the garden is a woodland area that houses the games room/studio perfect for both young and old alike.

Saham Toney is located within a short distance of the town of Watton which is on the north east edge of The Brecks, and is central to Norfolk's many attractions and within easy reach of both Shipdham and the bustling town of Dereham. Easily accessible by car, you will find Watton on the map some 20 miles west of Norwich, approximately 11 miles from the A11 (Thetford), and some 10 miles from the A47 (Dereham), with public transport/rail links to all major airports and Central London at both Thetford and Norwich.

A street market each Wednesday augments a remarkable range of small privately-run shops, some specialising in crafts and craft-wares and locally produced foods.
