Tenure: Freehold

A superb 5/6 bedroom family house with indoor pool and gym in an unspoilt rural setting

Location

Manor Lodge is situated in an unspoilt rural position situated off a small country lane and surrounded by farmland in a remarkably unspoilt pocket of open countryside between the coast and the Broads and adjoining the Honing Estate to the south. Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, lies about 17 miles to the south and the thriving market town of North Walsham is about 4 miles to the west. The coast at Happisburgh, with its sandy beaches, is about 3 miles to the east. Wroxham, the acknowledged centre of the Broads Network is about 6 miles.

Description

Manor Lodge is a spacious country property in a superb and unspoilt rural position with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. The property is believed to date from the 19th century and was originally three cottages extended and altered in the 1970s and again more recently.

The house was acquired by the current owners in 1999 when the property was considerably refurbished and renovated. The work carried out included the provision of new bathrooms, a custom built fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces (2006) complete redecoration and overhaul of the plumbing and heating installations. A major feature is the indoor swimming pool which is equipped with pool lighting, swim current and a jacuzzi at one end. There is also a sauna, changing room and shower. At the far end is a gym which is wired for sound and vision which also feeds through to the pool.

As can be seen from the floorplans, the house has spacious and well arranged accommodation and most of the rooms take full advantage of the elevated position of the property and the exceptional views over the surrounding countryside.

Outside
The house is approached through a five bar field gate into a gravelled drive which provides ample turning and parking space to the front and south of the house. To the southeast there is a double garage, traditionally constructed of brick and flint with a pantile roof. The gardens are an attractive feature of the property and are arranged as follows; to the south, west and north of the house there are extensive lawns planted with a variety of ornamental trees. To the south there is a pond with a weeping willow planted nearby and a stand of silver birch.

The property is surrounded by farmland over which there are outstanding and far reaching views. To the west and north of the house there is a paved terrace which is well positioned to take full advantage of the afternoon and setting sun. French windows from the swimming pool open onto this terrace. Situated to the north of the property there is a further access onto the lane through a 5 bar field gate.

The gardens and grounds in all extend to 1.33 acres (est).
