Full description

Wilderness Farmhouse is a stunning four bedroom, 16th Century, Grade II listed timber framed long house with four additional attic rooms and flexible accommodation. 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 panelling, an elaborate 'Arts and Crafts' oak door case 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.

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

Wilderness Farmhouse stands on the edge of the small rural village of Wacton. The South Norfolk village of Wacton has a varied heredity and is renowned for the Eastern Union Railway which ran through the village to London from the mid-19th century to its closure in 1966. The modern day is largely centred around the All Saints Church which is Wacton's most prominent landmark. The nearby village of Long Stratton offers excellent local shopping facilities. The regional capital, Norwich is about 12 miles to the north and offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and cultural amenities and being on the south side of the city Wacton House is well located for Town Close Prep School, Norwich High School for Girls and the Norwich School. The market town of Diss is about 10 miles to the south and offers a mainline rail connection to London Liverpool Street (90 minutes).
