Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We are delighted to bring to the market for the first time in 35 years this incredible property. 'Chanticleer' was formally a public house but more recently the grounds have been opened to the public. The property extends to over 5 acres (sts) and is split into many different areas such as orchards, paddocks, gardens and woods. Within this intriguing plot can be found the main house, a detached annexe, double garage and an outstanding barn split into stables and workshops. The property offers further development opportunity (subject to the relevant planning permissions and consents).

The house offers in excess of 2600 square feet. The ground floor has six reception rooms, central hallway, kitchen, utility room, rear lobby and shower room. A staircase leads down to the cellar in the basement. The first floor offers four double bedrooms, bathroom and WC. The annexe has bedroom, living room, garden room, kitchen and bathroom. The double garage is adjacent to the annexe whilst the barn is divided into seven sections (see floorplan for details). 

OVINGTON Ovington is a charming small village with an active community located near Carbrooke. The village has its own church and village hall. Each year Ovington holds a Christmas bazaar and a summer fete. The long established ladies group, gardening and bowls clubs are also active in Ovington. There are good shopping facilities and schools in the bustling market town of Watton, whilst there is a Waitrose supermarket at Swaffham. In addition, Watton is well placed for access to the A11 and the A47 as well as the B1108 offering a direct route into Norwich. There are mainline train services at both Attleborough and Thetford with regular intercity trains via Cambridge to London Kings Cross.

The cathedral city of Norwich offers a range of schools, university, beautiful heritage, dynamic nightlife, sophisticated shopping and mouth-watering restaurants. Thetford Forrest and the Brecks are nearby for excellent walking and cycling, whilst the North Norfolk coast with its outstanding beaches and bird reserves and the Norfolk Broads are both within easy reach. There are a number of golf courses in the area as well as other leisure facilities.
