Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to offer a superbly presented contemporary conversion of an Old School House in West Norfolk, nestled in a stunning position with far reaching rural views, private gardens, and enviable equestrian facilities, including stables, manège and multiple paddocks, with total grounds approaching six acres (subject to survey). The property is a classic late Victorian design, constructed in the 1890s and used as the village school until the 1970s. It incorporates several highly desirable architectural features including Neo-Gothic windows and vaulted ceilings. It has been converted to a very high standard including high quality double-glazed sash windows. The property is within the highly desirable Westacre Estate which offers extensive walking and riding trails.

The present owners have made considerable changes and improvements both internally and externally, which have greatly increased the functionality and enjoyment of the residence, including a new kitchen, entrance hall, log burners, stable roof and hay store. First-hand inspection of this bespoke property is essential to understand the wonderful living spaces it affords centred around The Old School House building.

To the ground floor there are a variety of reception rooms offering versatile atmospheres for both day-to-day living and entertainment, which fully embrace the character features of the architecture. Upstairs there are four bedrooms each offering fabulous vistas of the grounds and the Norfolk landscape.

The approach to the property is particularly wonderful, with a gravel drive, lined with ornamental pear trees, leading through the grounds to the house. Here there is access to private gardens, a courtyard, garage and stable block facility. "The owners have made full use of a stable yard with four boxes in total plus tack room and wash down area. There is also a separate hay store and feed room. The property also includes a competition size dressage arena with a new Flexiride surface. The local riding is excellent being rural and within reach of Peddars Way Roman Road and many bridleways nearby.

The outside areas include ample outbuildings, a garage, log store, and outdoor kitchen within a delightfully enclosed courtyard which is a real suntrap in the summer months. The garden and courtyard are served by an automatic irrigation system. The grounds boast many native trees and fruit trees including apple, plum, walnut, cherry and peach as well as mature ash, birch and over 200m of beech hedging. The entire perimeter of the property has been enclosed in rabbit fencing. There is an abundance of perennial flowers throughout the gardens which come to life in the spring as the newly arrived swallows make their nests in the stable block.
