Location

Pulham Market is a quintessentially English award winning conservation village in the heart of rural South Norfolk. The traditional village green is surrounded by pretty thatched cottages, general store and post office, an attractive church and two village public houses. Pulham Market is ideally situated to explore everything that Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer including the renowned Waveney Valley, the beautiful Norfolk and Suffolk coast and the famous Norfolk Broads.

Orchard Court is situated toward the edge of the village, adjacent to attractive undulating countryside yet within walking distance to the village centre.

The market town of Diss, approximately 8 miles, has a good range of amenities and facilities including supermarkets, banks, an attractive centre and a railway station with regular services to both Norwich and London Liverpool Street (the fastest journey time approximately 1 hour 30 minutes). The city of Norwich is approximately 17 miles to the north and is renowned for its shopping, attractive centre and cathedral and an airport on the north side with international flights available via Schiphol.

Description

Orchard Court is a wonderful family home, beautifully situated on the edge of the attractive South Norfolk village of Pulham Market, conveniently placed for Diss station.

The property was constructed in 1891, marked by a plaque above the entrance door, and is of solid brick construction under a tiled roof.

The house has been the family home of the current owners since 1972. Over a period of almost 2 years the house underwent a major restoration and renovation programme, with more recent works carried out within the last 10 years. The house has been very well maintained during the period of ownership. It would be fair to say that some of the fixtures and fittings would now benefit from some updating, although the standard of presentation is extremely high which also extends to the beautifully manicured formal and informal gardens and grounds.

All the principal rooms of the house enjoy views out across the gardens, many of which lead out onto terraces with seating areas enjoying views across the large pond, attracting a great deal of wildlife and creating a wonderful setting for the property. The rooms are well proportioned with good ceiling heights and many of the original period features remain. The staircase hall serves all the principal ground floor rooms with attractive staircase leading to the first floor, with five bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a splendid billiard room with high vaulted ceiling, which could create further bedroom accommodation if required. The second floor has three further bedrooms and the possibility of creating a further bath/shower room. The property is heated via an oil central heating system and the boiler was replaced in 2006.

We draw your attention to the floorplans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged.

Outside
The entrance drive to the property is approached on the northwest side of the house and leads to a wide parking and turning area for many vehicles where there would be plenty of space to construct a cart lodge/garage, subject to the normal planning consents being obtained. On the north side, the drive extends around to the garage block which was a former coach house with attractive paved courtyard garden serving the side and rear entrances to the property.

The formal gardens are on the south side with a large terrace running around the east, south and west sides of the property, attracting the sun all day and overlooking a large pond with associated plants and wildlife. There are various paved seating areas around the pond together with attractive well tendered lawns and a large variety of shrubs and plants. On the northeast side of the property are a large range of outbuildings including stores, workshops, greenhouses and a substantial outbuilding running along the far northeast boundary.

The wide and extensive formal lawns lead beyond the pond and out across the less formal part of the garden with a large variety of specimen trees and mature well maintained hedging. There is separate road access on the far southwest side which would lend itself to the creation of a paddock and stable block for equestrian use if required. The grounds enjoy excellent views out across open countryside. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 4.52 acres (est).

Services
Mains water and electricity, private drainage system and oil heating system.

Local Authority
South Norfolk District Council: Band G.
