Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are pleased to offer this striking Victorian town house, conveniently situated within a few minutes' walk from the centre of Dereham. Approached over a carriage style driveway with two pairs of wrought iron gates, Glendower House enjoys a handsome facade of red brick elevations, with sash windows flanking the porticoed front door. The property benefits from a substantial cellar and is adorned with authentic character features, including fireplaces, picture rails and the original staircase.

The accommodation briefly comprises sitting room, drawing room, dining room and kitchen arranged the spacious reception hall; with a games room and ground floor bedroom accessed through the drawing room. The games room is partially completed but offers adaptable space and the potential to create either a second annexe or increase the size of the existing annexe. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, four of which are generously sized double rooms. In addition to the main house there is also a self-contained annexe which includes an open-plan living area with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The property has successfully been used as a Guest House and Bed & Breakfast, with further income potential available from the annexe.

The gardens are predominantly to the rear of the main house, with parking available on the driveway to the front and in the adjacent double garage. It should be noted that the residents of Glendower Court have a right of way over the northern entrance to the house, and parking to the side of the driveway. The Mews properties are being sold separately.

Slightly further afield are the ruins of the Saxon Cathedral at North Elmham, the wildlife and Dinosaur Parks, Pensthorpe, a bird lovers paradise and Thetford Forest Park.
