Characterful Grade II listed 4 bedroom farmhouse with open views


The property enjoys a peaceful location off a quiet country lane amid the Somerleyton Estate. Somerleyton has an attractive village green and public house near to the River Waveney. There is a popular primary school and a train station with services to Norwich. The East Anglian coastline and Norfolk Broads are within easy reach.


Green Farmhouse dates back to the 17th century with a later 19th century addition and was originally part of the Somerleyton Estate. The house was sold away in 1981. It is of brick and flint construction under a tiled roof.

In 2001 the property was purchased by the present family, who
have lovingly maintained it in a sympathetic way within its delightful setting. Many original features remain, including oak beams, window shutters and a beautifully restored front entrance porch. The property is spacious and enjoys good ceiling heights. The current owners added a solid oak conservatory with sealed unit double glazing, and when building the conservatory turned the linking room into a pleasant garden room. In addition, they fitted a new utility room, upgraded the en-suite shower
room to the main bedroom and created a new adjoining bathroom to the second bedroom. In the main sitting room there is a Jetmaster open fire and a new Jetmaster was more recently installed in the dining room.

The bright and sunny accommodation enjoys views of the gardens and surrounding countryside, and at night the lack of light pollution offers moonlit, starry evenings.

An attached outbuilding has been renovated to create a useful store/games room, with a separate cloakroom. There is potential for further development with this building, subject to normal planning consents. We draw your attention to the floorplans to see how the accommodation is arranged.

The house is approached via a double drive serving the main drive up to the property. The boundary is marked by a wall, fencing and/or hedging. The garden on the north side is largely lawned with mature trees, beyond which two paddocks are leased from the local estate.

The gardens and grounds on the west and south sides are again
largely grassed with far reaching views across fields and open
countryside. There are mature trees and fruit trees, including a stunning mulberry. There is a fenced kitchen garden and in the west corner, an aluminium framed greenhouse. On the west side of the house is a most attractive courtyard seating area with grapevine. The gardens attract a variety of wildlife including barn owls and deer.
