Full description

Tenure: Freehold

3 bedroom detached period cottage with detached 1 bedroom annexe in beautiful landscaped gardens of 1.3 acres (sts) and surrounded by countryside.

The Cottage is a detached period property situated down a private road in a truly rural location surrounded by open fields, farmland and common land. The cottage stands in its own mainly walled and beautifully landscaped grounds of approximately 1.3 acres (subject to survey) comprising lawns, paved terraces, orchard and lake with a good sized driveway and a range of outbuildings including large timber double garage, greenhouse and sheds.
The main property has accommodation briefly comprising kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility, dining room, sitting room, ground floor bathroom with 3 bedrooms and a further bathroom upstairs. Planning Permission was granted in 2012 (but now lapsed) for a 740 square foot 2 storey extension creating a further en-suite bedroom, new utility room, boiler room, shower room and WC
Within the grounds, there is also a purpose built timber annexe, which does now require some finishing, but currently comprising living accommodation with kitchen, sitting/dining room, bedroom, shower room and attic room. The annexe lends itself to a variety of other uses such as holiday let, artist's studio or home office etc.

Brisley is a rural village which is located 6 miles from Fakenham and 6 miles from Dereham and less than 30 minutes to the outstanding and award winning North Norfolk coast and only 20 miles to the city of Norwich. The village is surrounded by undulating and well-wooded countryside and benefits from a popular and thriving village school, church, Brisley Bell pub and restaurant (due to open shortly after full refurbishment) and Brisley common.
