Tenure: Freehold

Location This elegant house is set in the Conservation Area of Hingham which is a charming village enjoying a wide range of independent shops, all within walking distance, ranging from those of practical everyday use to the more boutique. The White Hart in the centre of the village is a well appreciated destination pub/restaurant and hotel and there is also a primary school, public library, sports hall and playing field with tennis courts, dental surgery and large medical centre.

Norwich is just 15 miles to the east and the ever popular market town of Wymondham is only 7 miles away. Hingham is also close to the newly dualled A11 providing a quick access to Newmarket Cambridge, Norwich and London. Railway stations at Wymondham and Attleborough provide regular services to Norwich, Cambridge, and London. Regular half hourly bus services go to Norwich via the university and hospital and Wymondham. 

The Property This property is listed as Grade II and it is easy to see why. The house dates from early 19th Century and many of the original features of the house remain including the traditional windows with pine shutters, fireplaces, flooring, and stairway. The front door with brick arch and glazed fanlight opens into the hall with stairway straight ahead. The reception rooms to either side have working fireplaces and shuttered sash windows. The kitchen stretches across the rear and is simply fitted with pine base units and looks into the rear courtyard garden. Leading off is the study (which has been used as a ground floor bedroom) and has one wall fully glazed viewing into the garden.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms both with built in wardrobes and one has a basin. The bathroom is spacious for this type of house and was originally the bedroom. It has a white suite and leading off is a dressing room which could be opened into one of the bedrooms as the outline of a former doorway can be seen in the wall. 

Outside There is a gated passageway to the side allowing easy access to the rear garden which is irregular in shape and measures around 23'deep by 19'wide. It has been created to maximise the space and with the varying surfaces (paving, gravel, slate) it is an interesting area ideal for a containerised garden which can be varied to suit personal tastes throughout the year. With the houses surrounding, the garden is very sheltered and has its own microclimate. Leading out to the rear is a gate onto the churchyard. 

Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired combination 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.
