A delightful Grade II listed village house with a large historic garden


The small village of Ingham is situated in an unspoilt rural position bordering open farmland between the town of Stalham (1½ miles) which has an excellent range of shops and amenities including secondary schools and the northeast Norfolk coast at Sea Palling (2 miles) has unspoilt sandy beaches. Being in the centre of the Norfolk Broads area, the property is well located for excellent walking, sailing and wildlife. Norwich, the cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is about 17 miles. The village of Ingham itself has a magnificent 14th century church and a fine dining coaching inn, The Ingham Swan, which adjoins the property to the south.


Town House is a most attractive Grade II listed period property with origins going back to the 14th century but mostly dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. The house is traditionally constructed of flint and brick under a mainly thatched roof with a part-pantile roof to the rear. The property occupies a historic site with much of the garden originally forming part of the ancient Ingham Priory, which ceased to function before the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the early 16th century.

The property was acquired by the current owners in 1982 and has been a much loved family home since then. Much work has been carried out over the years including most recently the creation of a large kitchen/breakfast room with a garden room extension facing south onto a paved terrace with views towards the magnificent church tower. As can be seen from the floorplans, the property has surprisingly spacious and well arranged accommodation with three main reception rooms at the front of the house facing west with the dining room, kitchen, and breakfast/garden room to the rear on the garden side of the house. There are also four bedrooms, one on the ground floor and a further three on the first floor.

There is also a useful outbuilding on the ground floor with planning consent to convert this brick and pantiled outbuilding into an annexe/secondary accommodation. The property has a large and delightful garden to the rear and east with the church forming a backdrop to the south.

There is a vehicular access to the south of The Ingham Swan restaurant which leads to a gravelled drive and parking area where a double garage is also situated. There is a further vehicular access to the east of the house off the Sea Palling Road where there is also further parking space and a timber garage.

The garden at Town House is a particularly delightful feature with the splendid 14th century church forming the backdrop to the south. The historic garden originally formed part of Ingham Priory and later marl workings have produced the undulating topography which has created a garden of real character with areas of sunken lawn surrounded by shrubberies and ornamental trees with much underplanting of spring bulbs and flowers. Immediately to the south and east of the house there is a paved terrace approached by French windows off the breakfast/garden room and dining room. This in turn leads through to the main garden. The garden is a haven for wildlife and forms part of a Conservation Area. The land in all extends to 0.71 of an acre (est).
