Full description

Tenure: Freehold

One of the finest Victorian cottages you could possibly find. Internal viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate the simply incredible and welcoming interior of this lovely home. Fully renovated to an exacting standard by the owner, this two bedroom cottage has been thoughtfully extended and there is further planning for a loft conversion, too. The property may particularly appeal to those looking for that perfect Norfolk second home - the wow factors at every turn will make this such a lovely place to relax at weekends.
The hub of the home is the extended rear to the ground floor comprising a stunning vaulted ceiling living room combined with the high quality kitchen. The handmade units are complemented by solid oak worktops, bespoke tiling, butler style sink and SMEG appliances (inclusion subject to offer) - all shown off by a combination of natural light and modern lighting. To the front of the property can be found a traditional and again impeccably presented sitting room where the exposed brick fireplace has been enhanced with a multi-fuel burner. The ground floor also offers a modernised cloakroom, fitted storage solutions and entrance hall with stairs to the first floor.
The first floor offer two generously proportioned double bedrooms, the master featuring far reaching countryside views. The bathroom is fully modernised with a four piece suite including the attractive roll top bath. Planning permission already exists for a loft conversion to provide second floor with double bedroom and en-suite.
Externally there is parking for up to three vehicles as well as front and rear gardens which are all again immaculately presented. To make the most of the views to the rear a patio and newly installed summerhouse are all exactly as you would wish for.
This is a very special property indeed where the beautiful refurbishment has also been sympathetic with the character and warmth.
