Park House stands on the very edge of North Elmham village, just over a mile from this historic Saxon village, which has a village store, doctor's surgery, primary school and two public houses. Adjoining the property is Brisley Common, providing wonderful walking over one of the largest commons in the county, and just a short walk away is the Brisley Bell public house, soon to re-open. Brisley also has a highly rated primary school.

The market town of Dereham offers an excellent selection of supermarkets, shops and schools, whilst the towns of Fakenham and Holt are all within easy reach. The Cathedral city of Norwich is renowned for its shopping and cultural facilities, range of schools and has a mainline railway station with regular intercity trains to London (Liverpool Street) and an expanding airport. Trains can also be taken from Kings Lynn or Downham Market with connections to Cambridge and London (Kings Cross). The North Norfolk coast with its renowned beaches, sailing and bird reserves together with the Norfolk Broads are both within easy driving distance. There are a number of golf courses and other leisure facilities in the area.


Park House is a fine period family house believed to date back to the early 1800's and was once the park keepers' house of a large deer park which is believed to have once belonged to the Holkham Hall Estate. Park House enjoys a secluded setting, surrounded by open countryside and enjoys fine views. At one end of the garden is a bridge across a stream, giving access directly onto Brisley Common, which is ideal for walking and bird watching. There is also a village cricket pitch in the centre of The Common.

Park House has been extended with the conversion of the former stables to form additional accommodation and now has 5 bedrooms in the main house together with a separate self-contained annexe. There is also a ground floor bedroom suite which could be used separately if required. The present owners have refurbished much of the house to a high standard and have added the new conservatory. Surrounding the house are the charming gardens and grounds which extend to about 1 acre(stms).

The accommodation is approached through the front door to a hall with staircase to the first floor and small sitting room or study to one side. There is a large drawing room with full height ceiling and french doors to the garden, together with fireplace with wood burning stove. The dining room opens directly off the kitchen/breakfast room which is of an excellent size and ideal for family living. Double doors lead through to a family room, giving ample space for everyday living. There is a utility and rear hall, whilst from the family room a door leads through to a ground floor bedroom suite, comprising bedroom, sitting room and shower room.

On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom and a family bathroom. To one side of the house, and converted from the former stables is a self-contained bedroom with bathroom, ideal as separate guest accommodation.


Outside is a single garage, leading through to a large workshop which could also be used for garaging if required.

The gardens and grounds are a feature of the property and have been extensively planted to form a most attractive setting for this family house. Park House is approached over a gravelled driveway where there is a large parking area and through a wooden five bar gate to provide parking for several cars, also giving access to the garaging. The garden comprises large areas of lawns, together with a number of fruit and flowering trees and several flowering shrubs. To one corner of the garden is a kitchen-garden area with greenhouse, raised beds, and fruit cages, all enclosed with mature hedging. The whole property is fully surrounded by established trees and hedges and forms a most attractive setting for this house. The gardens extend in all to about 1.25 acres (stms).
