Situation

Little London is a charming hamlet just outside the well serviced town of North Walsham. Straight from the property, there are miles of paths and walks to follow, along with the nearby Pigney's Wood, run by the North Norfolk Community Woodland Trust (charity). Both the north and east coastlines are within a short drive as is Wroxham, the home of the Norfolk Broads Network.

North Walsham has a wide range of amenities including supermarkets (Waitrose), shops, schools, a doctor's surgery as well as public transport (bus and rail) to Norwich.

Description

The Farmhouse was built circa 1750 and is a charming Georgian red brick farm house with covered parking area and adjoining 2 storey annex with lapsed planning permission. There is ample off road parking for a number of vehicles both in front of the house and to the land to the side of the annex and parking area. The gardens (in all approximately 0.45 acres stms) have been thoughtfully landscaped and planted, ensuring different specimens around the garden are in flower all year round.

The house enjoys an unrivalled location, with stunning far reaching countryside views over the rear, looking over the neighbouring farmland and beyond, whilst to the front of the property (the other side of the lane) there is a paddock with horses, a stunning view.

Ground Floor

The house is accessed through the central entrance hall and to the right, leads into the kitchen/breakfast room complete with Aga and handmade fitted kitchen. A garden room is accessed off the kitchen as is the utility room and pantry at the rear.

To the left of the entrance hall is the dining room with French doors to the rear garden, and double doors leading through to the large (24'3 x 20'6) "L" shaped sitting room complete with open fire.

A study is located behind the sitting room with the benefit of its own front door, allowing the room to be used as a home/office without the need to access the main house.

First Floor

The central staircase leads up to the first floor landing where the sleeping accommodation is found. The master bedroom complete with en suite bathroom (with additional separate shower) and a separate dressing room/nursery is found at the western end of the house whilst 2 further bedrooms are located centrally overlooking the rear, with stunning far reaching views. The 4th double bedroom is located at the eastern end of the house with built in cupboards, one of which has a staircase leading up to the large boarded attic space. A family bathroom with separate shower cubicle serves these bedrooms.

Workshop/Annex

Adjoining the house, next to the study, is a workshop and linking this to the annex is a covered parking area. The annex, set over two floors, has lapsed planning permission to be converted into a self-contained annex, with the addition of a bathroom and kitchenette utilising part of the covered parking area.

Outside

The garden is semi-formal with extensive lawns bordered by low maintenance shrubs and includes a small pond. It has been planted so that there is something in bloom every month of the year. Rhododendrons, Walnut trees and flowering Cherry trees are particular highlights. The house looks out over uninterrupted views of open farmland which then rises to managed woodland.
