THE PROPERTY
The property offered for sale is a highly individual detached dwelling situated in a superb rural location with no near neighbours. The original building is believed to be late Victorian and was constructed as a crossing gate/signalman's house for the Midland & Great Western Railway. Having been extended in more recent times, the property now offers accommodation comprising an entrance hall and an open plan and double aspect sitting room/kitchen with an oil fired Rayburn and an open fireplace. There is also a utility room and a master bedroom with a dressing room and a further double bedroom and a bathroom. The property also enjoys a range of period features to include high ceilings in some rooms which are clad in pitched pine and pamment flooring. Other features include wooden latch doors and wooden shutters throughout. Outside, the property is approached through a five bar gate leading to a good size parking area and a detached block built double garage. The good size grounds surround the property on all four sides and are mainly laid to lawn with various inset flower, herb and shrub beds and an array of fruit trees. Also set within the grounds is a detached brick built workshop and various wooden garden sheds. The grounds extend to just under 1/3rd acre (subject to survey).
LOCATION
The small village of Oulton Street is situated approximately 3 miles from the market town of Aylsham which offers excellent shopping facilities. It is 8 miles from the elegant Georgian town of Holt. The centre of Holt comprises mainly individual shops and businesses where a friendly and personal service still remains. The town is also home to Gresham's Public Schools. Norwich, a cathedral city and the regional centre of East Anglia, lies approximately 13 miles to the south east and has excellent leisure and shopping facilities together with cultural activities to suit most tastes. There is a mainline rail service with regular trains to London (Liverpool Street) with a fastest time of 1 hour 40 minutes. Norwich International Airport is located on the north side of the city and gives access to the UK, Europe and beyond to most destinations via Amsterday (Schipol). The North Norfolk coast at Blakeney is around 10 miles distant. Much of this coastline is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a heritage coastline offering many opportunities for sailing, walking and bird watching. There are several golf courses within easy reach including Weston Park, The Links at West Runton, Sheringham and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club at Brancaster.
