Contemporary energy efficient house in unique woodland setting


Drayton is a popular village to the northwest of Norwich. It has retained a community feel while boasting several amenities including two pubs, a bank, supermarket, good schools, doctors' surgery, dentist and chemist. There are excellent bus and cycle routes into Norwich, with its renowned retails sector, thriving cultural scene and a high standard of educational facilities. Norwich International Airport is also a short distance away, and there is a direct line rail service to London Liverpool Street.

Drayton has an abundance of green space with playing fields and access to the historic Marriot's Way footpath and cycle route which runs between the market town of Aylsham and the city of Norwich. Water meadows surrounding the River Wensum also provide rich habitat for wildlife.


7 Littlewood is an impressive contemporary home, enjoying open plan accommodation and occupying a peaceful woodland setting yet convenient for Norwich.

The property was completed in 2010 by award winning developer, Abel Homes, who finished the house to a high standard including the installation of an Eco efficient heating and hot water system. This comprises of an air-source heat pump, providing heating to the ground floor via underfloor heating and to radiators on the first floor, with a whole house heat recovery system maintaining a fresh atmosphere throughout the home, re-distributing warm air from the bathrooms and kitchens, via a heat exchanger to the living rooms and bedrooms. During the summer months a bypass valve can be opened to provide cool air to the living areas and bedrooms. There are also solar thermal panels aiding the hot water system. A wood burner is also installed in the living room, with the heat redistributed around the house by the ventilation system.

The spacious living areas are arranged for modern day living, with a wonderful open plan kitchen/breakfast area and dining room, with a split level down to the living room (remaining open plan), with fine views of the gardens and woodland via floor to ceiling windows. The kitchen is thoughtfully designed, with Bushboard Encore worktops and integrated Bosch appliances, with a useful pantry adjoining. The ground floor also includes a utility room, WC, and a study/playroom which could be used as a bedroom.

An oak staircase leads to the first floor, with a central landing leading to all bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom faces south, with a Juliet balcony, dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There are a further three double bedrooms; two with Juliet balconies, and all with fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom is between all bedrooms and there is a large airing cupboard situated off the landing.

The property occupies a private and secluded position, in a group of four similar houses set at the end of a long drive. The drive is lined with lime trees, and sweeps up to the houses from the north, where there is parking adjoining the double garage. Also to the north of the house is a well stocked flower bed with an assortment of shrubs, with a path leading to the front door.

The main garden is to the rear of the house which is south facing, and mainly laid to lawn gently sloping away to woodland on the boundary. Within the garden are a number of trees including oak. A large terrace adjoins the house to the south, with glass balustrade, and provides a wonderful seating and outside dining area accessed from the dining area, utility or living room.

Mains water, electricity and drainage, air source heat pump, solar panels and wood burner.
