Substantial house set in about 3.6 acres close to Norwich


The Red House is situated in a rural setting on the western edge of the village of Great Plumstead. The city of Norwich is 3½ miles to the west, with thriving retail, educational, cultural and recreation sectors. The village of Wroxham (4 miles) provides access to the waterways of the Broads and the River Bure with its own excellent facilities and the village of Brundall (2 miles) has a garage, shopping and schooling.

Local trains from Brundall and Salhouse connect with Norwich station. The onward journey to London Liverpool Street is 1 hour 40 minutes. The Norwich southern bypass (1 mile) provides access to the A47 and the A11 trunk road to the south west providing direct access to Newmarket, Cambridge, London and M11 motorway. Air links are via Norwich airport from the north of the city to Amsterdam Schiphol and onward international connections.

The surrounding area is predominantly agricultural providing excellent opportunities for walking and riding. There are good schools in both private and state sectors including Norwich School (at the Cathedral), Norwich High School for girls, Wymondham College for boys and girls, and Town Close and Taverham Preparatory schools.

There are golf courses at Royal Norwich, Sprowston, Caistor and Weston Park and racing at Newmarket, Great Yarmouth and Fakenham.


The Red House is a substantial family home, enjoying elegantly proportioned rooms and good period detail such as shuttered sash windows, open fireplaces and fan light above the main entrance. The house is conveniently positioned for access into Norwich.

The house has well arranged accommodation, with fine rooms including a panelled dining room, a drawing room and sitting room with French doors out to the gardens and spacious kitchen/breakfast room with Aga. Other useful rooms include a utility, study and cellar and a delightful garden room.

A charming staircase leads to a central landing off which is the master bedroom, with adjoining bath/shower room and six further bedrooms, all double rooms and a bathroom.

The house is approached from the south through a wrought iron gate mounted on a curved brick wall entrance with a gravelled drive sweeping up to a parking and turning area adjoining the house.

The extensive gardens and grounds surround the house and are arranged as follows; to the south is the more formal gardens, with box hedging, rose beds, well stocked herbaceous beds and established boundaries including a fine curved beech hedge. To the southeast is an area of woodland with some fine mature trees, which continues through to the northern boundary, with a tennis court, croquet lawn with yew hedging and lawned area in between. To the north of the house is the kitchen garden.

Near the entrance of the property is the most attractive former coach house, suitable for a variety of uses and now in need of refurbishment.
