An iconic period property in the ever popular North Norfolk village of Brancaster. Manor Farm House is a substantial and much loved family home located in a wonderfully private position, only a short walk away from Brancaster Beach and the Royal West Norfolk Golf Club.
This beautiful period home is around 250 years old, and a quintessential traditional English country home. It displays considerable character, with its many original features such as the old butler's bells, beautiful fireplaces, decorative wood panelling and sweeping staircases. The accommodation is vast and offers spacious and light rooms; downstairs there is a kitchen/breakfast room and three reception rooms including two large sitting rooms with generously sized bay windows to the front of the house, whilst eight bedrooms and three bathrooms can be found on the first floor. From here there is access to the attic space which offers a further four separate rooms.
The delightful grounds are open and spacious with large lawned areas and planted shrub and flower beds, with a tall brick and cobbled wall and a variety of mature trees creating a high level of privacy.  Planning permission has been granted to create a new access to the front of the house via the Beach Road.  
A separate parcel of land to the rear of Manor Farm House which includes a swimming pool, lawned garden and wooded area is available to purchase via separate negotiation (Lot 2).
