Deceptively spacious family home three miles from the coast


The village of Browston is located on the Norfolk/ Suffolk border and boasts a par 3 golf course at Browston Hall. Local schooling can be found in the neighbouring village of Belton. Browston is located 1½ miles from Lound which offers a recently renovated gastro pub. Other eateries can be found at the nearby village of Somerleyton (3 miles) and the coastal town of Gorleston-on-Sea (3 miles) which also offers everyday shopping facilities and banking as well as a beach with Edwardian promenade. Norwich is approximately 21 miles away and the Suffolk Heritage Coast at Southwold is 18 miles away. There are rail services at Somerleyton, Haddiscoe (5 miles) and Great Yarmouth (5 miles) to Norwich.


Crossways Farm is a deceptively spacious family home located three miles from the coast.

Believed to date back to the mid-18th century, the property was formerly a separate cottage and barn. They were cleverly amalgamated in the 20th century into the family home it is today and the property still retains the cottage appearance to the front but enjoys the spacious feel of the barn internally. The current owners purchased the property in 2000 and have continued to maintain it. This has included the replacement of some windows, the addition of a shower room, and the conversion of the garage to a studio.

Crossways Farm offers adaptable accommodation over two floors, with one of the bedrooms being located on the ground floor with an en suite shower room. The property's main reception room, the sitting room, has an impressive inglenook fireplace and opens onto the garden terrace via French doors. For a full explanation of the accommodation we draw your attention to the floorplans.

Crossways Farm is approached via a gravelled drive which provides parking for several vehicles.

The garden is located to the rear of the house and is largely laid to lawn but interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. There is an attractive terrace running the length of the house which offers several areas for al fresco dining. There is also a wooden summer house with electricity which enjoys views of the horses stabled at the neighbouring property.

The studio is accessed via the garden. It has been equipped with electricity and water and is currently used as an art studio although, subject to the usual planning consents, could potentially provide additional accommodation if required.

In all the gardens extend to 0.79 of an acre (est) and there is a separate access via a 5-bar wooden gate located on Lound Road.

Mains water and electricity, drainage to septic tank and oil fired heating. The studio does not have a heating system.
