Situation

Shotesham All Saints is arguably one of the most sought after South Norfolk villages, sitting just a few miles south of Norwich. The village benefits from the local pub - The Globe, and is a wonderful spot for both walking and wildlife enthusiasts. The villages of Stoke Holy Cross, Framingham Earl and Poringland are nearby, providing schooling, shopping and local services. The A47 is easily accessible within just a short drive offering direct access to the Southern Bypass.

Description

Appletrees was originally a much smaller detached bungalow, but during the current owners occupancy has been significantly extended and modernised to now offer a wonderful family house, in this rarely available village location. The ground floor is accessed through the entrance hall (complete with a W.C.) with the kitchen/dining room found off the hallway. A utility room leads off the kitchen and provides access to the rear garden. The accommodation is divided to offer a number of different living areas, ideal for a family with a large (22'2 x 18'4) sitting room with French doors located at the rear. An open plan family room is located off the kitchen whilst a central hallway and staircase provide access to the rest of the house. To the front is a large (17'1 x 12'10) study and two bedrooms served by a family bathroom. A master bedroom with en suite bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation. 2 further bedrooms and a landing area complete with ample storage have been created in the previous loft space on the first floor, accessed by a staircase leading up from the ground floor.

Outside

Appletrees is set back from the road and is approached over a gravel driveway offering ample off road parking for a number of vehicles. A large open porch covers the entrance to the house. The rear garden is divided into 2 sections - the first being the original traditional/formal rear garden, with a terrace and landscaped areas with access leading through to the fabulous large woodland garden. This area offers a combination of large trees (including a tree house) as well as open areas, where the current owner's children have played football etc. A large greenhouse complete with power and light is located at the southern end and is currently used for storage. The garden is a rare find, but being land locked, should never be developed on and will always offer the owner a secret garden!
