Location If you are looking for a house in a peaceful position away from neighbours then this property will be perfect. It is surrounded by gently rolling Norfolk countryside with the nearest other house being around 200m away. Whilst having this rural aspect, it is in an area which is easily accessible. The bustling market town of Diss is just 5 miles away and has a mainline rail station on the Diss to London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London of around 90 minutes. There are excellent schools in the area both private and state, and a wide array of sporting and social amenities catering for all walks of life. The beautiful Norfolk coastlines around Holkham to the north and Southwold to the east are both within an hour's drive. This property comfortably combines the rural lifestyle with access to facilities. 

The Property Driftway Farm is a period house with origins believed to date back to the 16th century with much of the timber frame on show but yet it is not Listed. The roof was renewed just a few years ago and it has been maintained carefully over the years but it is fair to say it would now benefit from some cosmetic updating most notably to kitchen and bathroom fittings which are all in working order but dated in style.

The accommodation is across three floors and quite spacious and given it isn't Listed there is the potential to extend or remodel much more easily if desired. 

Outside The house is set central to its grounds which extend to 0.417ha (1.03ac). There is lawned garden to the front, side and rear together with flower borders and an orchard area with productive fruit trees. To the rear is a former tennis court which still has the fencing in place and could be re-levelled or the fencing removed to enjoy the rolling landscape. For a buyer who needs storage space, this property has much to offer with its range of barns to the side and a separate studio and garage.

The access to the house is across a lane which is understood to be highway owned but unadopted and has been maintained by the present owners for many years.  

ADDITIONAL LAND A further 33 acres, or part thereof, of farmland is available to purchase separately. This is current let under a Farm Business Tenancy. Further details are available from the agent's office.
 

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water. Please note that the services/appliances/central heating and heating system/plumbing and electrical installations have not been tested by the selling agents and the purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition and warranty of these items. 

Directions From Diss heading west on the A1066 towards Thetford. In South Lopham after passing the White Horse public house, turn left signed to Blo Norton. Continue for just over half a mile and there is a track on the right leading to Driftway Farm. 

Viewing Strictly by appointment with TW Gaze.
