Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rare opportunity to acquire a substantial 6 bedroom period house with an attached 2 bedroom cottage, large outbuilding and grounds of 0.4 acre (sts).

Hill House is a substantial period house located in the heart of the village of Whissonsett with spacious and well-presented accommodation briefly comprises bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, 29' sitting room, snug, dining room, playroom and study with 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms upstairs. The attached Hill House Cottage has 2 bedroom accommodation with a modern kitchen with separate utility, lovely beamed sitting room and shower room. In recent years, the cottage has been used as completely self-contained annexe accommodation and a holiday lettings business.

Outside, there is extensive gravelled frontage to the properties and separate west-facing gardens to the rear with a large detached outbuilding (formerly 2 cottages but currently used as a workshop and gym), is considered suitable for a variety of other uses, subject to the usual permissions. In all, the gardens and grounds amount to approximately 0.4 acre (subject to survey).

Whissonsett is a pretty, rural mid-Norfolk village surrounded by farmland and orchards with a parish church, village hall and playing field. Whissonsett or Witcingkeseta, as it was known in the Domesday Book, means either the settlement of the Witcing tribe or a place of watery meadows and, as the village is in a valley on a tributary of the River Wensum with many wells and springs, this description is very apt. The village is well placed for easy access to the market towns of Fakenham and Dereham with nearby schools in Brisley, Colkirk, Litcham and Fakenham. The North Norfolk Coast, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty renowned for its sandy beaches, bird reserves and sailing, is only 16 miles to the North.
