Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION: A truly rare opportunity to acquire perhaps one of the most imposing country houses in the area. Glebe House is a fine example of early 18th Century architecture with later additions and ranked as a Grade II Listed house in a superb setting with a walled courtyard and extensive southerly facing formal gardens and grounds of around 7 ACRES {subject to survey). The house has undergone considerable improvement over recent years with opportunities for additional alterations if required to create one's own 'grand design' on this well proportioned Norfolk Home with almost 7,000sq.ft. of living space.

The small Breckland village of Ashill sits strategically in the heart of Norfolk with the royal country residence of Sandringham and beautiful coastline around an hour's drive to the north, the Fine City of Norwich some 25 miles to the east and the A11, Cambridge and Stansted International airport an hour or so to the south west. The local Market towns of Watton and Swaffham provide all the usual shopping facilities and the village itself can still boast a pub, delightful church, primary school and shop.

The well planned accommodation with oil fired radiator central heating, provides comfortable living space with the added advantage of extra room for perhaps staff or an extended family, or to create a secluded working environment for a new or existing business.
