Crinoline House is a well-presented cottage believed to date back to the 1870's. The property is of red brick construction under a pantile roof and is double glazed throughout. The property has been extended over the years with the conversion of the original barn to form additional linked single storey accommodation. Crinoline House enjoys a rural setting, surrounded by spectacular countryside views.

The accommodation is approached through the front door into a spacious area that connects the former house and the more recently renovated barn. This area provides dual aspect views to the east and west and the present owners utilise this space as a music room. Doors lead directly to the main house, the extension and the garden. The main house is reached down a corridor, with utility room immediately off to the left and porch and rear door to the garden. In the sitting room there is a brick fireplace with wood mantle and wood burning stove and uninterrupted views across surrounding farmland. The kitchen is fully fitted with a range of Schmidt units and integrated appliances complete with granite worktops, tiled flooring and underfloor heating. The adjacent dining room is in an open plan design and French doors lead directly out to the garden.

The barn extension is reached directly from the main entrance and the accommodation comprises a boot room, which has the potential to be modified into a kitchen, thus creating a fully self-contained annexe, a shower room (separate hot water and heating tank from main house), a bedroom/study with fitted units and a further double bedroom. Original exposed beams are an attractive feature of the barn.

A Norfolk winder staircase leads to the first floor accommodation. The master bedroom has dual aspect views, to the west is open countryside and to the east are the mature gardens, paddock and farmland. There is a dressing area and fitted wardrobes in this room. The family bathroom and a further bedroom with fitted cupboards completes the first floor accommodation.

The attic space is accessed via a fitted loft ladder, the space is boarded, has headspace to walk, lighting and windows to either end.


Crinoline House is approached over a gravelled driveway. There is a parking area at the front with access through a picket fence gate to a lawned and terraced cottage garden with flint and brick wall surrounding. A 5 bar wooden gate leads to a double timber built garage (with electric doors) and shed at the rear of the property, the garden and paddock beyond. The gardens are a feature of the property and comprise areas of lawn, together with mature trees, established shrubs and hedges and attractive flowerbeds.


Located in rural East Tuddenham, Crinoline House is only a short drive from the A47, with easy access to Norwich and Dereham. The village itself includes a village hall, offering well-supported activities, a tennis court and a football pitch. Its pretty location also makes it popular with walkers all year round and for golfers, there are a number of good courses nearby. Proximity to Norwich means The University Hospital and Norwich Airport are just a 15 and 20 minute drive respectively. For those with young families, East Tuddenham is close to a number of well-reputed schools.
