Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location The Old School House is in a truly lovely location set on the edge of the Kimberley Estate with farm and park land views to front and rear and has the feeling of little change over the years. Whilst having this quiet location, the house is only five miles north of the ever popular town of Wymondham and just 10 miles from Norwich and therefore has the best of both worlds. Wymondham is highly regarded and has good schools, a wide range of shops, restaurants, and transport links having a rail station on the Norwich to Cambridge Line, and a dual carriageway (the A11) running from Norwich to the A14 corridor. For wider facilities the cultural centre of Norwich offers a great deal and also has an international airport. 

The Property This property was, as the name suggests, once the local school and has been carefully converted to reflect its original character whilst making it comfortable to live in. The use of traditional materials and retention of as many original elements as possible has kept the feeling of little alteration whilst creating rooms which are stylish throughout, well proportioned and bright. Given the size of the plot it is felt there is room to extend if desired and this could be done without detriment to the overall style of charm of the house.  

Outside One of the great features of this property is its garden which extends to over half an acre and has been lovingly tended over many years with areas of lawn, flower beds, shrubs and trees. Pockets of garden have been created to give year round interest. There is an original well and a timber summer house with views over the garden. 

Services Mains water, electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water. 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. 

Directions From Wymondham on the B1135 (Tuttle Lane) turn off onto Barnham Broom Road. Continue for around 3 miles and just over the hump back bridge, the entrance to The Old School House is on the right. 

Viewing Strictly by appointment with TW Gaze.
