Valley Farmhouse is a detached period farmhouse believed to date from the early 19th century of brick construction under a tiled roof providing spacious family sized accommodation which requires modernisation and updating. The property was purchased by Arthur Wordingham in 1915 and formed part of a small arable and pasture farm. Adjoining the house is a traditional barn which could be converted subject to planning permission to form part of the residential accommodation or as a separate unit and within the grounds is a former granary, suitable for conversion to annex/holiday cottage or other uses subject to planning permission. There are additional buildings and a large garage block with ample car parking area.

The property is within 300 metres of Holt town centre in a quiet location on the southern side of the popular Georgian Market Town of Holt. The house retains period features including exposed beams and pamment flooring and there is a large sitting room and dining room on the ground floor and 6 bedrooms on the first floor.

Holt is renowned as a fine unspoilt Georgian Market Town with excellent shopping and restaurant facilities and is particularly known for the Holt Festival and as the home of Gresham's public, preparatory and pre-prep schools with further schooling available in the area in both the state and private sector including excellent Primary schools at Kelling and Holt and Beeston Hall Preparatory School at West Runton. The villages of Blakeney and Cley some 4 miles to the north, are part of the North Norfolk coast designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and border the marshes and beaches which provide access to leisure pursuits and seal colonies and bird watching.

The cathedral city of Norwich (21 miles to the south) has a vibrant business community and is the regional centre for shopping, leisure and cultural facilities. There is a mainline railway station to London Liverpool Street and an expanding airport to the north of the city.

The house is approached from Valley Lane along a private driveway leading to the front and side of the house and to a large open fronted garage. To the side vehicular access leads to a rear courtyard with store and access to the former granary which is suitable for conversion to an annex/holiday cottage subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Adjoining the house to the west is a traditional barn suitable for conversion with excellent eaves height and capable of forming part of the main house or a separate unit.

The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and provide privacy and seclusion so close to the Town Centre.
