Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are pleased to present this charming detached brand-new executive family home, which enjoys a fantastic secluded plot. Positioned along a private road within the popular rural village of East Bilney, the property is situated just a short drive from the thriving market towns of Fakenham and East Dereham. 

This striking detached home and landscaping was completed in 2019, finished to the highest specifications by using luxury fixtures and fittings throughout this very spacious property. The home is accessed through a set of five-bar double gates, with a pedestrian single gate to the side, onto a block weave driveway. This leads to a double bay cart lodge, leading around to the rear garden and via a pathway to the covered oak framed front porch.

Upon entering the home through a portly glazed door, you are welcomed into an impressive reception hallway with oak wood flooring laid throughout most of the downstairs accommodation, extending to 1,109 Sq. Ft. The cloakroom is accessed from the hallway, with stairs leading up onto to the galleried landing. The ground floor is completed with glazed internal oak doors.

The impressive 22'5" open plan kitchen/living space has a range of wall and base units, integral BOSCH appliances, which include a fridge/freezer, double oven, induction hobs with overhead extractor hood and a dishwasher. The kitchen has been finished with Silestone Quartz worktops which extend to create a breakfast bar and plenty of remaining space for a dining table, with tri-folding doors leading out into the rear garden.

In addition, there is a separate utility room which has had the same units carried through, with Silestone Quartz worktops, fitted with a tall larder cupboard, enclosing the wall-mounted Viessmann boiler and water softener. Additionally, there is an integral BOSCH washer/dryer and an external door leading to the driveway, cart lodge and rear garden.

The remaining living space has been split into three further reception rooms. The 22'1" dual aspect lounge features a stone effect fireplace surround, housing a glass fronted wood-burning stove and bi-fold doors leading out onto the paved terrace.
The dining room/snug room has oak internal double doors which are partly open-plan with the kitchen/living space, with views out onto the rear garden and long terrace. The study is positioned toward the front of the property, which houses landline, superfast broadband and 16-port Cat5e data network for home office working and media streaming. The galleried landing grants access to all five good sized bedrooms, three of which have built-in storage, benefiting from two en-suites and a family bathroom.

The fully enclosed lawned front, side and rear gardens offer a great deal of privacy, enclosed by close board fencing and established laurel hedging. The Indian sandstone terrace is a real feature to the south facing rear garden, which backs onto neighbouring meadows. East Bilney is perfect for 'countryside walks', with an extensive network of footpaths, including a local riverside walk.  

EAST BILNEY Situated approximately 7 miles south of the market town of Fakenham and 6 miles north west of Dereham, both of which have regular farmers markets and excellent shopping facilities. The local Medieval church of St Mary is a grade II listed building which was restored and largely rebuilt in Victorian times.  A stained-glass window is dedicated to the memory of martyr Thomas Bilney who was born in the village in 1495. The village sign is copied from this window.

East Dereham is a busy mid Norfolk market town with a wide range of amenities including schools, a swimming pool, golf course, museum and many shops.  It claims to be the Heart Of Norfolk as it is so central in the county. It has some pargetted buildings - pargetting is East Anglian exterior decorative plasterwork. It's ideally located for both the North Norfolk Coast and Norwich with its international airport and mainline rail link to Liverpool Street, London.

Fakenham has been voted the 7th best place to live in Britain by Country Life magazine. It's a market town in central Norfolk - halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich. It has a Thursday market that dates back to 1250 and a Farmers Market on the last Saturday of each month with great locally grown organic produce! It's often called the Gateway to the North Norfolk Coast as it's well positioned for the coast and other local attractions like Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park and Fakenham Racecourse. Easy to get to are Holkham Hall, Sandringham and the Thursford Collection of steam engines and funfair rides with its wonderful Christmas Spectacular Show - the largest of its kind in England. There are plenty of places to eat in the town including pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as a four screen cinema and the Gallows Sports Centre with golf, squash, tennis, archery, rifle shooting and bowls. Rail access is via King's Lynn (20 miles) or Norwich (25 miles). Norwich International Airport is rapidly becoming a major feeder airport for worldwide travel via Schiphol.
