The village of approximately 170 households benefits from a village hall, historic church, a school and a playing field.

The property lies less than 20 miles to the south of the cathedral city of Norwich with its fine selection of shops, restaurants and schools, both public and state. The market town of Diss is less than 15 miles away and has a mainline railway service to London Liverpool Street, currently quoted as a 90 minute journey.


The Long House is believed to date back in parts to the 17th century, and like many larger Norfolk country houses, was originally 2 smaller properties that have been joined together over the years. The property was originally modernised in the 1970’s before the current owners carried out a complete refurbishment including a bespoke kitchen by Bates of Wroxham.

Ground Floor (1454sq ft.)

The house is entered through the centrally located entrance hall, after which turning right leads into the large (21’5 x 15’4) dual aspect sitting room with installed wood burner, benefitting from a direct view over the stunning landscaped front garden. Passing the entrance hall, and accessed off the corridor is the dining room (currently used as a study) again with a direct view over the front garden. At the end of the house is the newly installed fitted kitchen, complete with solid wood units under a granite work top, with the addition of an Aga. The kitchen opens directly into the breakfast room whilst the newly created garden room is situated off the kitchen to create a fabulous light room to enjoy the beautiful rear garden from. A utility room is found off the garden room, behind the kitchen. A downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation

First Floor (1212sq ft.)

The first floor can be accessed via 2 staircases, with the main leading up to the first floor landing from the ground floor entrance hall. The second staircase is located at the end of the corridor behind the kitchen and leads up to the northern end of the house.

The dual aspect master bedroom is located at the southern end of the house and benefits from an en suite bathroom and large built in wardrobes.

Three further bedrooms are located on the first floor, each with built in storage, and these are served by the centrally located family bathroom complete with separate shower cubicle.


The house stands hidden and well back from the road, and is accessed over a large gravelled parking and turning area, with ample off road parking for a number of vehicles in front of the detached double garage block complete with integrated wood store. The front garden is set behind a hedge and is planted as an orchard, separated from the front formal garden by another large hedgerow. The garden has been beautifully landscaped, partly laid to lawn with numerous herbaceous borders planted along with a terraced patio area to the front. The rear garden has again been thoughtfully planned and designed, with a central lawn and large patio terrace linking the garden room to the rear garden, with various herbaceous borders and plants set in raised beds.
