Location Old Buckenham lies in an attractive area combining a rural lifestyle with good access to all facilities. At the heart of the village is the Green of about 40 acres with duck ponds and playing fields and is the venue for the annual fair. Locally, there is a secondary and primary school, village shop with post office and public house. Lying 3 miles to the north is the market town of Attleborough and around 8 miles away is Wymondham, both of which are towns on the Norwich to Cambridge rail line. Nine miles to the south is the market town of Diss which lies on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line, a journey to London taking around 90 minutes. The fine cathedral and regional city of Norwich is around 15 miles away via the A11 London Road. Norwich is renowned for its retail and shopping facilities and vibrant business community.  

The Property A beautifully balanced family home of approximately 3,000 sq.ft., offering an abundance of space and light, Ragmere Farm has been superbly restored and cleverly extended to create a stunning home combining classic elegance with contemporary touches. There are two reception rooms in the original part of the house whilst to the rear is the wonderful open plan kitchen/living/dining area which is very much the hub of the house. The kitchen has bespoke Neptune cabinetry and a granite topped island and perhaps the outstanding feature is the extension with its roof lantern bathing the area in natural light. There is a wonderful 'flow' to this house perfect for family gatherings, dining and entertaining all year round. A ground floor master bedroom with en-suite bathroom offers potential for annexe living having internal hallway access and doors to the garden. Four upstairs bedrooms share a family bathroom; the front rooms enjoy an aspect over the grounds.

The front garden is principally laid to grass with a variety of trees and has a flint wall around part. The rear garden is landscaped to a large area of lawn; shaped beds and a wide sand stone terrace. At the bottom of the garden stands a former granary building (19'5 x 11'5) with loft over. The house is set within one-third of an acre. See note below re additional land
