Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to present Oakgrove, a substantial executive detached family home. The property is approached via Elsing Road, through a set of private electric double gates onto an impressive plot along a brick weave driveway and is positioned within the extremely popular village of Lyng, a semi-rural mid-Norfolk village.

Over the past 7 years, the current owners have undertaken a series of improvements and alterations both internally and externally, significantly enhancing the property into an impressive family home with high specification finishes throughout.

Internally the property offers flexible accommodation, providing the ability for a large family or multi-generation living, extending to approximately 3,141 sq. ft.

The ground floor provides all the modern qualities you would expect, featuring an impressive open-plan kitchen/dining/living space. To one corner is the boiler room with an oil-fired central heating boiler and storage. The fitted kitchen has a range of cream base and wall units with oak work surfaces, including an island incorporating further storage, The island partially divides the kitchen area from the dining area which leads through to a seating area with wide sliding patio doors opening out onto the rear garden. Additionally, the kitchen is fitted with an integral dishwasher and fridge/freezer as well as a freestanding Rangemaster cooker with hood over. There is also a utility room and shower room.

The remaining living space has been split into three further receptions rooms, currently used as a study, snug and a 19'3 living room with patio doors leading into the conservatory, which enjoys views across the front garden.

The first floor is accessed from the hallway, leading onto an impressive central galleried landing which leads to all six double bedrooms, including the master suite, which has a dressing room and en-suite. The remaining bedrooms benefit from a fitted bathroom and shower room suite, accessed from the landing.

The property sits in generous lawned gardens enclosed by close-boarded fencing with electric double gates giving access from the road. Once through these gates, a long block paved driveway leads to a parking area alongside the house and continues beyond the house to the detached double garage which has an electric roller door and personal door to the rear garden. The front garden is laid to a wide sweeping lawn with a wide slate terrace ideal for al fresco dining with doors from the conservatory. The rear garden is again lawned with matching terrace and gate to the driveway. To the side of the house is a gravelled storage area with gated access from the front garden. 

LYNG Lyng is an attractive village with its own public house, local convenience shop, garage, primary school and post office. The village is situated 7 miles from the market town of Dereham and 4 miles from Reepham and it is within the catchment area for the popular Reepham High School. The Cathedral City of Norwich is 12 miles away which is dominated by its magnificent Norman cathedral, boasting the largest cloisters in England, the second tallest spire in the country and an amazing 1,200 carved stone roof bosses - one of the greatest art treasures of medieval Europe. Norwich is proud of its past and present status. Its ancient buildings and city wall remains make it the most complete medieval city in Britain. In medieval times Norwich was one of the greatest cities in England, and today, as East Anglia's capital city, it still is - offering a rare blend of historic interest and modern sophistication. The city offers direct rail links to London and international travel via Schiphol airport in Amsterdam.
