Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Location has to be one of the most important aspects when buying your next home and Old Chapel Cottage has what most people want - rural views, edge of village, not isolated but private, and easy access to wider facilities. Old Buckenham is a very popular South Norfolk village within the houses set around the 40acres or so of village green believed to be one of the largest in England. around the edge is the village shop, a couple of pubs, the secondary school and church. The growing towns of Attleborough and Wymondham are within 4 miles and 6 miles both of which have train stations on the Norwich to Cambridge line (connections to Kings Cross) and Diss with its station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line is just 10 miles. The cultural city of Norwich is within easy reach (14 miles) and has an international airport as well as being the gateway to the Broads. Both the north and east coastlines are within an hours drive. 

The Property Old Chapel Cottage has origins dating back to the mid 1600's and has a converted barn at its centre with former cottages to either end now seamlessly converted to a stylish and spacious house with a blend both old and new. It has both an open plan feel and smaller cosier rooms catering for all aspects and with the single storey element there is so much flexibility. This series of three rooms is currently used as a home studio, cinema room, and study but gives the opportunity to be many other things including an annexe or home office.
The living room was converted from the original barn and is both bright and airy in a contemporary style with the full glazing to the front allowing the light to flood in. By contrast the kitchen is far more traditional and custom made oak units, exposed ceiling timbers and wraps around to the dining area which easily accommodates a very large table as well as dressers and still leaves room for a sizeable sitting area with woodburning stove. There are various other rooms on the ground floor including a second sitting room partially divided by an open fire, conservatory, laundry, WC and a sauna room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms and the flow between contemporary and traditional continues most notably between the main bedroom and its adjacent bathroom.
The garden room was converted from former stables and is detached from the house and adjoins the workshop. This area has potential for incorporation within the rest of the house (subject to planning) or perhaps as a teenage suite or simply retained as an area to enjoy a summers evening.

Outside This property is set within 0.147ha (0.36ac) with the shingle drive sweeping past the front lawn and trees up to a side parking area. To the other side of the house is a shingle and raised bed garden reminiscent of a garden in the south of France and this area enjoys a southerly aspect. Around to the rear are two further garden areas, the farthest being lawned with an ornate brick wall, and the closer garden being between the house and the garden room and enjoying a private and sheltered atmosphere. 


Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water. A separate hotwater tank with immersion heater serves the main bathroom. Please note that the services/appliances/central heating and heating system/plumbing and electrical installations have not been tested by the selling agents and the purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition and warranty of these items.
