DESCRIPTION

The property was originally constructed in the 1890s and then sympathetically converted in 1985, winning a coveted Broads Authority award for its design. The property is a mid-terraced period dwelling that retains many beautiful original features. The property is well-presented, and the proportions of the rooms allow for comfortable and very liveable 4 bedroom accommodation.

The property is approached through a covered arched entrance porch, leading to the front door which opens into a large L-shaped entrance hall with exposed feature brick herringbone and timber wall at the far end and access to all reception rooms; there is a linen cupboard and a large cloakroom with sink and W.C. off. A solid timber column extends up from the ground floor, through to the first and second floors. The dining room has a ceramic tiled floor, views to the front of the property and a second door opening into the rear hall with access to the kitchen. The L-shaped lounge enjoys dual aspect views to the front and rear of the property, an open fireplace with stone surround and hearth, and floor to ceiling book shelving. French doors open into the kitchen/conservatory room towards the rear of the property, so this room also benefits from rear garden views and the open countryside beyond.

At the heart of the property is a fabulous large open plan kitchen/breakfast room with double-glazed and timber constructed conservatory and limestone flooring. The custom-designed and hand-crafted Eric Bates kitchen is comprised of solid oak units with granite worktops and a central island. Integrated appliances include dishwasher, combination microwave, double oven range cooker with six-burner hob and integrated waste and recycle storage bins. There is an integrated ‘American’-style fridge/freezer and space for a washing machine.

The staircase from the entrance hall leads up to the first floor galleried landing with fantastic feature arched window and wrought iron spiral staircase to the second floor. The master bedroom is generously proportioned, enjoys views to the front of the property and has an en suite shower room comprising double shower, 2 wash hand basins and low-level W.C. There are 3 further bedrooms, one of which is being used as a study and enjoying spectacular open countryside views through a feature arched window. Bedroom 3 also benefits from these lovely rear views, whilst bedroom 2 overlooks the front walled garden. The family bathroom is a good-sized room, comprising corner bath with shower over, wash hand basin and low-level W.C.

The wrought iron spiral staircase leads up to an open U-shaped galleried area which provides a wonderful vista down through the centre of the property and out to the front through the full length feature arched window on the first floor. With the addition of 2 Balcony Velux windows this space is flooded with natural light. The timber column extending from the ground floor diffuses out to create fabulous spurred roof supports that extend up to a magnificent vaulted ceiling. There is ample storage on this floor with considerable boarded eaves storage surrounding this galleried space.
__________

OUTSIDE

The property is approached through the enclosed front garden, which is accessed through a wrought iron gate set within a brick archway. A central path leads up to the entrance porch, either side of which there is an area of lawn with mature shrub and flower beds.

A detached garage is located at the front of the property and has double opening doors, workbench, power and eaves storage.

The rear garden is accessed from the kitchen/conservatory room or externally via a pathway that runs along the rear boundary of the property. This is a private and mature garden with an abundance of trees, shrubs and flower beds. There is a paved area for casual dining, a garden shed, an arbour and far-reaching countryside views.
