Property Description

Full description

A fine, prominently standing and extensive detached home located in the heart of this popular Village just on the outskirts of Downham Market. The history of ‘Gloucester House’ grows from its days of being a Village Inn as long ago as the mid 18th Century. Since then, it has been extended and modernised to offer a generous level of adaptable accommodation, boasting 5 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. Yet throughout, much of the original charm and character remains through exposed beams, wooden floors and open fireplaces. The outside space stretches far beyond the rear extending to and including a separate paddock that measures around 3/4 of an acre. This is complimented by a range of outbuildings that include a 36ft barn, a 23ft workshop along with a stable and covered parking block which all-in-all provides further space and scope for such buildings to be converted for other purposes (subject to any relevant planning permissions being obtained). The internal accommodation includes a 25ft galley kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, a 15ft sitting room, a 15ft dining room, a further 21ft front room and both shower and bathrooms. Viewing is highly, highly recommended.
