Tenure: Freehold

A spacious and impressive family home on a quiet country lane in the village of Little Dunham. The property enjoys fabulous proportions throughout, with approximately 3,400 square feet of internal floor space as well as a separate double garage which has been cleverly linked to the main house by the addition of a superb 21' garden room. Situated at the end of a sweeping shingle driveway, the house has been designed in the style of a traditional Georgian residence with a symmetrical red brick façade under a pantile roof. The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises reception hall, formal sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, family room with wood burner, garden room, utility and cloakroom. The first floor offers five double bedrooms and the family bathroom arranged around the spacious galleried landing whilst the master bedroom enjoys the luxury of both an en-suite and dressing room. The guest bedroom also has an en-suite whilst bedrooms three, four and five all benefit from extensive built-in furniture and wardrobes. A sixth bedroom or private upstairs study could be accommodated by converting the spacious study area on the landing. The house sits in approximately an acre (sts) of beautifully presented gardens - perfect for families. Despite the rural surroundings, the property is only a short drive from the A47, allowing for easy access to both Norwich and Kings Lynn, as well as the nearby market towns of Dereham and Swaffham. The thriving village of Litcham nearby provides a range of amenities whilst well regarded primary and secondary schooling is available nearby. This is an elegant and handsome family home which should be viewed to be appreciated.
