SITUATION & LOCATION This charming established semi detached house has been significantly improved and extended in recent years by the present owner and now offers comfortable well presented accommodation throughout. The house has been cleverly adapted to provide an open plan kitchen with a light and airy rear conservatory off and includes a lovely LPG fuelled Aga Rayburn range cooker with power flue. The ground floor accommodation is further complimented by a useful ground floor shower room and separate utility room and the good sized lounge includes a fireplace with multi fuel burning stove.

Originally built by Norfolk County Council and forming part of a development of similar homes located on the edge of this popular West Norfolk Village, this house, like many houses on the development and conducive to its age and style was originally built with reinforced concrete panels to its elevations under a tiled roof, although the side addition had brick elevations. More recently all the external elevation walls have been insulated with an EWS external solid wall insulation system, designed to improve the thermal efficiency of residential and commercial properties. Other improvements have included replacement Upvc sealed unit double glazing throughout and there are French doors from the conservatory into the rear garden. A particular feature of this home is the large garden which extends to the side and rear of this property and benefits from a rear vehicular access.

The sale of this home offer an excellent opportunity to purchasers seeking an adaptable family home in a village location close to surrounding farmland and countryside and early viewings are recommended.
