Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are pleased to offer this highly individual and luxuriously appointed family home occupying mature grounds of approximately 2.5 acres (STMS), in a pleasant position with beautiful surroundings backing on to Hoe Common. Having undergone major renovations and extensions in recent years, this unique property provides spacious and stylishly presented accommodation over two floors which extends to in excess of 3,000 square feet. In brief, the accommodation comprises reception hall, 24'8" sitting room with snug/separate dining room, superb open plan kitchen/diner with a hand crafted kitchen and island plus built-in appliances, study, walk-in larder/stores/boot room and shower room on the ground floor. The five bedrooms and family bathroom are arranged around the impressively bright and spacious landing area. The guest bedroom comes with the benefit of an en-suite shower room, whilst the highly desirable master suite comes complete with a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite shower room and a covered sun terrace which enjoys breath-taking views of the private grounds. The land, which is predominantly located to the south of the house, resembles open parkland, with open expanses of grass enclosed by mature trees and a pleasant wildlife pond. Other features include a large garage/workshop and a superb paved terrace. Set well back from the road, the property is approached over a tarmac driveway and through a five bar timber gate at the centre brick wall, opening into the shingle driveway. To the front of the house there is generous off-road car parking within this area which also leads to the front of the double garage and adjoining workshop. The grounds extend in total to approximately 2.5 acres (STMS), with much of the land laid to lawn which has been neatly maintained by the current owner. The boundaries are defined by mature tree lines which give the outside space a feeling of open parkland and provide the most scenic of backdrops. Also, within the garden there is a large wildlife pond with a timber bridge over, which is again flanked by mature trees and provides a haven for local wildlife. In the recess, between the sitting room and kitchen/dining room, there is a delightful paved terrace which provides the most idyllic outside entertaining area. 

HOE Hoe lies adjacent to the village of Beetley with its primary school, hairdressers and a regular bus service into Dereham. There is also easy access to the main roads into Norwich, King's Lynn and out of county areas. Dereham is a busy market town offering museums, a leisure centre, golf course and schools within the town, or for the nature lovers take a stroll along the Neatherd Moor and the Vicarage Meadow.
