DESCRIPTION Orchard house is believed to date from the 1630's and has been sympathetically and completely renovated by the current owners to an extremely high standard to create a fabulous family home with an abundance of character with modern living in mind. The property benefits from 5 zone under floor heating throughout the ground floor with radiators on separate heating zones to the upper floors, all via an oil fired central heating system. A pressurised hot water system and circulation pump ensures uniform water pressure to the bathrooms and showers. All of the windows in the house are oak frame double glazed and there is low energy LED lighting throughout. The solid brick walls have been insulated and dry lined throughout the property and the roof and loft space are also insulated. 

LOCATION Bramerton is a popular village situated to the south east of Norwich and bordered to the north by the River Yare with easy access to the A47 Southern bypass which connects to the A11 and the A140 which are the two main routes into Norfolk. Bramerton has a church, a village hall, and a riverside pub/restaurant. The neighbouring villages of Rockland St.Mary and Surlingham have village shops, riverside pubs and primary schools. Rockland Broad and Wheat Fen Nature Reserve are nearby. 

GROUND FLOOR From the front gate an old brick path leads through the topiary and knot-garden to the open oak porch. Upon entering the property you will note the flagstone floor which extends through the ground floor to all rooms with the exception of the sitting room and the study. An ash staircase provides access to the upper floors and a door at the rear of the hallway leads out to the walled patio area. The shower room is fully tiled with white WC, wash basin and a wet room shower. The sitting room has a Tudor brick floor with a multi-fuel burner in the inglenook fireplace. An old former fireplace provides book storage shelves.

The large kitchen/breakfast room has oak and granite worktops above bespoke painted units, French double sink, a dual-fuel range cooker (LPG) with a concealed extractor, integrated dishwasher and combination microwave oven. There is also space for an American style fridge/freezer. The utility room has matching units below a Formica worktop, stainless steel sink and there is a water softener, plumbing for washing machine and a free standing oil fired boiler. The study has a brick floor and looks out over the front garden.
The dining room has plenty of space to extend the dining table and features another multi-fuel burner, wood store and original inglenook. 

FIRST FLOOR The landing opens to study area and provides access to a family bathroom, two double bedrooms, one with an exposed brick 17th Century fireplace and the impressive master bedroom suite with oak flooring, a 17th Century window, and painted panelled walls with window seat. Separate doors provide access to a dressing
room with range of fitted drawers and rails. There is a connecting door through to the en-suite bathroom which features an amazing copper and nickel free standing bath, Victorian style sanitary ware including twin wash basin, a WC with high level cistern and large tiled walk-in shower. The family bathroom is a delight, with Victorian style sanitary ware including bath, wash stand and basin, WC with high level cistern and a separate tiled shower cubicle. 

SECOND FLOOR The real character of the house is equally evident on this floor with exposed timbers and the restored original oak floor in one of the double bedrooms. The bathroom has a free standing roll top bath and opaque diamond leaded patterned windows to the landing. 

OUTSIDE A shared driveway to the side of the house leads to double gates which open to a pea shingle driveway which in turn leads to a parking area by the outbuildings which include a double bay cart lodge style garage. The 18th Century barn is full height with a mezzanine level, lighting and power. The 20th Century barn has high double sliding doors, with lighting and power and would be ideal for a number of purposes including workshop or secure vehicle storage.

There is a walled patio area to the immediate rear of the property, accessible from the rear of the entrance hall and the kitchen/breakfast room and a block pathway from here leads to the walled secret garden, part-paved and filled with exotic plants. A pantiled gazebo at one end provides the perfect place for barbecues.
The grounds mirror the attention to detail of the house and are wonderfully maintained including a variety of fruiting trees and shrubs comprising apple, plums, greengage, grape vine, strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant and gooseberry. There are raised vegetable beds, an orchard and established herbaceous borders. There is even a lawn tennis court.
