THE PROPERTY An opportunity to purchase this attractive detached former granary set just outside the North Norfolk market town of North Walsham adjacent to the canal with a substantial detached single storey outbuilding that was previously a gallery.

Originally purchased by the current Vendors as a derelict building in the mid-1970's, Staithe Lodge was lovingly renovated and extended and is now arranged to provide four bedroom accommodation with a number of character features.

The triple aspect 'L' shaped sitting room/dining room enjoys a wood burning stove set in an exposed brick fireplace with exposed ceiling beams, there is a 16'8 kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room with walk-in pantry, ground floor cloakroom and a family bathroom on the first floor.

The property is heated via oil fired central heating to radiators and all windows have been double glazed (with a combination of upvc and timber framed units).

The detached single storey outbuilding provides over 1,900 sq ft of space, with windows on all sides, power connected, WC and store room. Adjacent to the outbuilding is a brick double garage.

The generous plot extends to approximately 0.4 acres and provides mature gardens, paved courtyard, and off road parking space for several vehicles.

In this instance the property is offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.
