Full description

Fine and Country is delighted to present this six bedroom, approximately 4,500 square footage, brand new, beautifully designed and constructed residence sitting on a spacious plot surrounded by majestic, mature trees and a beautiful, twelve foot high, old, red-brick wall.

The finished building which was finally completed in October 2015 is a delight, and sits proudly in the centre of the sheltered plot with scope for developing the garden should someone so wish. A separate garage sits to the side of the entrance, partly a spacious open car port and partly a locked garage with an up and over electric door, all with light and power. The hipped rooves of the garage and the lower-height wings cleverly match the pyramidal tops of the pillars in theboundary wall.

The property inside is as much a triumph as it is outside. You enter under an open porch created by the projecting upper floor which is supported by brick pillars, through a solid oak front door, glazed panels either side, and into a reception hall with a dramatic, centrally-positioned, solid oak staircase. The whole layout of the building is symmetrical, based more-or-less on a cross-shape, with the hall and landing with the stairs in the centre. The flooring in the front hall, the kitchen, through to the utility, downstairs cloakroom, and office is porcelain tiles but looking like timber, and there is underfloor air source heating throughout the downstairs.

The kitchen is a wonderful, very light space, almost thirty feet long, with a fitted Howdens kitchen with painted cream, solid timber doors, at one end and double patio doors onto the rear garden with room for a kitchen dining table at the other. There is no end of storage space in the kitchen including a big larder cupboard and deep drawers for big pans. The central island is topped with solid oak and houses two circular stainless steel sink with a flexi-mixer tap, whilst undern the window in the dark grey composite worktops on the units is a black ceramic sink. Space is left for appliances including enough for a sizable cooker fuelled by electricity, (or oil or LPG gas should a new owner want to set this up). There is a wine cooler fitted into the island, and all the cupboard doors and drawers are at the other end of the house there is an annex whose kitchen has been fitted out in a similar manner. This could work well for an elderly relative with thedownstairs reception room and en suite being a bedroom, as the kitchen has been set out to accommodate a sofa for this very reason. There is a wheelchair ramp leading up to the solid oak door, and with an upstairs room and en suite as well, it could be suitable for more than one or two people.

All the downstairs reception rooms, and the linking passage to the office, have double patio doors opening onto the rear garden which enhances the throw of natural light especially as this is south facing. The dining room, centrally positioned between the kitchen and the sitting room, has vertically-panelled, solid oak internal double doors which not only lead into its neighbouring rooms but also into internal cupboards at the back of the room. The sitting room has a large, open, brick-lined fireplace awaiting installation of a log-burner, with the chimney flue in situ. The dining room and some of the bedrooms are carpeted in a neutral textured carpet, but bare floor elsewhere is left for carpeting by the new owner.Bedrooms all lead of the central square galleried landing, all extremely spacious, the master enjoying almost floor-to-ceiling glazing over the garden, with further windows to the sides, and a walk-in dressing room plus big en-suite beyond.

The views from the house especially to the back are of the huge lawn and mature trees in the garden including a big lime tree in the middle and a collection of four oaks, and the woods behind. The front looks onto the immense, gravel drive with further lawn and some fruit trees in front of the magnificent, red-brick, garden wall.

Grooms Cottage is in a very convenient location, quiet and rural, but so easy to reach lots of towns with their facilities; it is exactly midway between the market towns of Swaffham and Fakenham (a ten minute car journey of eight miles), and King's Lynn is about a twenty-five minute drive, and Norwich about thirty-five. Weasenham itself has a small but very pretty church which is still open, and Weasenham St. Peter, just up the road has the Fox and Hounds pub serving real ales and homemade food.
