Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A farmhouse dating from the 16th century, sympathetically extended and with impressive accommodation


The Old Manor is situated in an unspoilt rural position on the edge of the popular Broadland village of Hickling about 2 miles from the town of Stalham which has an excellent range of shops and amenities including secondary schools. The northeast Norfolk coast at Sea Palling is about 3 miles which has unspoilt sandy beaches. Being in the centre of the Norfolk Broads area, there are fine countryside views and the property is in an excellent location for walking, sailing and wildlife. The village of Hickling which is about half a mile is famous for its Broad, the largest of the Norfolk Broads and has a nature reserve. The village also has a school and there are two public houses; one with a community shop. Norwich, the cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is about 16 miles.


The Old Manor is a deceptively spacious property, originally a farmhouse dating from the 16th century and extensively enlarged and extended by the current owners in 2005 who built onto the house creating a ground floor wing with a music room and conservatory, additional bedroom accommodation and a bathroom in-turn linking to the original farm buildings in which they installed an indoor swimming pool with changing rooms and adjoining gym. In addition they created a superb large and very well fitted kitchen/dining room with solid Oak kitchen units, an extensive range of appliances and a two oven oil fired Aga. The original 16th century part of the house is of traditional brick and flint construction, colour washed under a Reed thatched roof with the extension built of traditional brick under a pantile roof. The whole property was extensively refurbished in 2005 with the provision of new bathrooms. As can be seen from the flooplans the original part of the main house has two reception rooms with 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and then there is an extensive bedroom wing linking the property to the barn and indoor swimming pool complex. The kitchen/dining room extension adjoins the house to the rear.

The Old Manor is situated within its own garden and has extensive meadowland/grazing extending to 2.54 acres (est).

Mains water and electricity, drainage to septic tank, oil fired central heating and Aga.
