Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive grade II Listed village house set within delightful private gardens of about 0.3 of an acre together with numerous brick and tile outbuildings. 

DESCRIPTION Occupying a prominent village setting, The Retreat is a classically proportioned five bedroom family home with origins believed to date from the 16th century with later additions and influences, notably the imposing double fronted Victorian façade. Covering some 2,500 sq.ft the well-proportioned and symmetrical accommodation is accentuated by the high ceilings to the majority of the rooms. Set to the north east corner of the Market Place, the house fronts onto the centre of the village offering delightful views on both floors.

The walled gardens are chiefly to the rear which are a particular feature, consisting of a raised rear terrace with two circular areas of lawn beyond, defined by well-established flower and shrub borders with espalier holly and fruit trees. Beyond the more formal areas of garden are two raised fruit and vegetable plots, divided by a further area of lawn. Set to the northern boundary are an extensive range of useful brick and tile outbuildings, including two garages set either side of gated courtyard. 

AGENTS NOTE The property is located within the development boundary of the village and subject to the necessary planning consents, scope for residential development is possible within the furthest section of the garden 

OUTSIDE To the front, the gardens can be accessed via a wrought iron pedestrian gate which leads on to an enclosed terrace which extends to the rear of the house, with a further gate leading onto Norwich Road.

The first of the numerous outbuildings houses the oil tank with adjoining log store, two workshops, garage and a further detached garage / barn which provides vehicular access from both Norwich Road and Tanning Lane to the far eastern boundary. The delightful gardens offer a great deal of privacy which have been painstakingly maintained and span some 0.3 of an acre (stms). 

SERVICES Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired heating.
