Full description

Long Furlong House comprises a detached
period house in the "Arts & Crafts" mock Tudor,
Lutyens style, built in 1923 principally of brick
and timber construction under a pintiled roof.
The property was originally built for a Colonel
and Kate Crowdy who were returning from India
and subsequently the property was extended
and enlarged through its three ownerships,
having been divided into three during the
Second World War and one part occupied by
officers of the USAF.

Owned by the current vendors since 1983 the
property offers a unique opportunity providing a
small country estate in North Norfolk surrounded
by farmland in attractive unspoilt countryside in a
completely private location yet within easy reach
of Holt, Blakeney and the North Norfolk Coast.

The house retains many "Arts & Craft" features
with exposed timbers and brickwork, latch
doors, fine oak staircase and pegged timbers,
brick feature fireplaces and leaded windows.
There is a spacious entrance hall, a south facing
dining room and sitting room and large kitchen/
breakfast room with two oven oil fired Aga

suite, seven further bedrooms all of which have
wash basins in the rooms.

classified as being an area of outstanding
natural beauty is 1½ miles to the North and

Norwich to Liverpool Street taking approximately
100 minutes. Norwich Airport offers both
