HOME FARM HOUSE A detached farmhouse in rural position with 4 reception rooms and 6/7 bedrooms. Outbuildings and pleasant gardens. In reasonable condition throughout. Strategically situated in south-west Norfolk between Watton and Attleborough, within striking distance of Norwich and the A11 corridor. 

DESCRIPTION Home Farm comprises a detached house constructed of brick and flint with pitched main roof and offering well arranged accommodation on three floors with 6/7 bedrooms depending on how you look at the accommodation.

Much of the charm of this property rests with the unspoilt rural location and flexible accommodation and the vendors have improved the property over their period of ownership. The house will certainly suit a famiy looking to live in a rural position with privacy. The rooms work extremely well and in particular on the ground floor are divided up into two sections really and there is scope to let part of the ground floor for holiday lettings or other purposes, or in conjunction with a bed and breakfast business if required or alternatively to incorporate the whole into one family house. 

LOCATION The property is located on the edge of the village of Stow Bedon. This is a wonderful opportunity to live tucked away in a special place with a great deal of privacy, yet within easy reach of main communication routes. The property is strategically situated between Watton, Attleborough and Thetford and within striking distance of the city of Norwich. Access to the A11 trunk road is good and following the improvement of this road the driving time to Cambridge and the M11 has been reduced. The village of Caston is only about a mile away with an excellent pub and easy access from here to Great Ellingham and Attleborough. 

DIRECTIONS From Norwich, proceed out of the city and continue out on the A11 trunk road, bypassing Wymondham, and on reaching Attleborough take the second exit off the bypass and turn right, going under the flyover on the B1077 towards Great Ellingham. Continue along the road through Great Ellingham and on reaching the village of Caston turn left immediately after the pub. The road winds round through open countryside for about a mile and the property will be seen on the left hand side. 

ACCOMMODATION The accommodation works exceedingly well and the ground floor is laid out in two portions, with the principal rooms either side of the entrance hall leading round to the rear hall and the kitchen. The back addition provides further accommodation, with a separate access at the side and there is scope here, as mentioned above, to create a separate business or for two families to live in the house. The first floor accommodation equally works very well and the attic rooms have been adapted and incorporated into the house.

OUTSIDE The property is approached from the road and a drive leads up to the front of the property where there is hard standing for a number of vehicles. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with specimen trees and shrubs and has views over open farmland. There is a side courtyard included with the property, adjoining some outbuildings and this leads round to the rear garden which is again mainly laid to lawn with flower borders with a terrace adjoining the back of the house. 

SERVICES Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage system. No mains gas. Oil central heating. 

AGRICULTURAL BUILDINGS These buildings adjoin Home Farm House and are connected to the outbuildings that are to be sold with the main property. The buildings here have been used in conjunction with a piggery business but the existing farm buildings are no longer suitable and viable for use as an intensive pig rearing operation, being located too close to the centre of the population in the village and because of this an application for permitted development was lodged with Breckland District Council earlier this year.

The buildings comprise a mix of traditional brick/flint/clay lump and timber frame single storey units and would be very suitable for conversion to a single dwelling. Equally, the existing buildings could be adapted and used for agriculture or other purposes, subject to requirements.

Prior approval for change of use under the General Development Order 2014 has been granted for change of use of this agricultural building to a single residential unit, such unit being approached from the road and adjoining Home Farm. This consent is not an ancillary permission and the barns can be sold for development if required. Details relating to the prior approval and everything relating to this are available at the office of the vendors' agents or on Breckland District Council's website (Ref. 3PN/2015/0045/UC. 

AMENITY LAND The amenity land is situated on the opposite side of the road to Home Farm House and the buildings. Currently down to grass and triangular in shape, with access onto the road.
