Full description

abbotFox Bespoke presents The Wilderness Farmhouse, a stunning seven bedroom, 16th Century, Grade II listed timber framed long house with four additional attic rooms. Flexible accommodation includes two kitchens, formal dining room, reception hall, sitting room, drawing room, study, cloakroom and conservatory. The first floor can be accessed via two staircases and provides four generous bedrooms, the principle bedroom with a large en suite. Two staircases connect the first floor to four spacious attic rooms and additional loft space over the East Wing.

The house is largely of timber frame with later 19th Century additions to the east and north. The house has a pantiled roof, though the steep pitch of this roof would suggest that this was preceded with thatch. Character can be found throughout and includes a Trompe L'Oeil Regency cupboard with central mask and decorative pilasters, attractive Victorian paneling, an elaborate 'Arts and Crafts' oak doorcase exposed timbers and several fireplaces.

The Wilderness Farmhouse occupies a superb location north west of the Anglo-Saxon All Saints Church and bordering attractive 'Ancient Countryside' views. The property sits on approximately 2.5 acres (stms) featuring a 0.5 acre paddock (stms), formal garden, orchard and spinney. The property is approached via a long private driveway that runs alongside the paddock. Various outbuildings include a dairy, stable, barn, garage and substantial detached Victorian green house.

Wacton is a short five minute drive from Long Stratton which boasts a wide range of amenities, plus a collection of public houses. Norwich is only 14 miles from Wacton and offers a mainline railway serving
London Liverpool Street and international airport.

Note: An archaeological and historical study was carried out by the University of East Anglia and can be provided upon request.
