Penny Spot Farm provides a remarkable opportunity to purchase a lovely period farmhouse believed to date from 1880 which was originally part of the Bylaugh Estate. The property sits in grounds in excess of 26 acres (stms) with idyllic countryside views, overlooking the River Wensum at the bottom and with Bylaugh Hall to the distance. This is an ideal property for the provision of country sports, whether it be equestrian, shooting or fishing.

The farmhouse itself has been lovingly restored and renovated retaining many period features such as the tiled floorings, Victorian fireplaces and exposed brickwork. The ground floor accommodation offers entrance halls to two sides, kitchen, dining room, morning room, living room, utility room, cloakroom and store room. The first floor features three double bedrooms, bathroom and en-suite to the master. The all-around views should be seen to be appreciated. In addition there is 'The Pavilion' in the garden - fully refurbished and insulated to provide guest accommodation. This could equally be a useful playroom or home office, with another bathroom also provided.

Planning has been granted in full for a stunning two storey extension. Further details can be sought from the agent or from the Breckland Council website.
