Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to offer Penny Farthing, an idiosyncratic home on the fringes of Holt enjoying a private setting on the Cromer Road in High Kelling. Set in a large and wooded plot, this four bedroom home provides an enviable combination of privacy and a well-connected location.

The star of the show at this property is undoubtedly the dramatic vaulted reception room that greets you upon arrival through the entrance hall with a stunning exposed stack fireplace. Further accommodation includes a large open-plan kitchen/dining room with a modern fitted kitchen and ample space for a four seater table in the dining area. A substantial conservatory is accessed via the kitchen and opens via double doors directly to the rear garden. To the rear of the property, 3 large double bedrooms benefit from built in storage and are served by a sizeable and stylish family bathroom complete with his and hers hand wash basins and decorative panelling.

The first floor is home to a further large versatile room set in to the eaves of the property; this room currently serves as a bedroom but could fulfil any number of purposes.

Outside, Penny Farthing sits centrally in a large and varied plot. To the front, a long driveway winds its way between trees leading to a generous parking area and the detached garage. To the rear, a large and private garden is mostly laid to lawn and interspersed with mature flowerbeds. The side garden is dedicated to a superb block-paved sun terrace complete with summer house and provides the ultimate sun trap for summer dining.  

SITUATION/LOCATION High Kelling is a small village near to the Georgian market town of Holt. It is ideally located for access to the North Norfolk coast with its miles of unspoilt coastline. The village has a post office, doctor's surgery and a dentist.

Holt is one of the most attractive small towns in Norfolk in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The town existed before the Norman invasion but was destroyed by fire in 1708. It had to be rebuilt and we're very lucky that the timing meant that the Georgian style was used. The main street is lined with colour-washed Georgian buildings, many of architectural importance. There are tea and coffee shops, lots of antique and curio shops, food shops and delicatessens, banks, independent shops and, of course, historic Gresham's School founded in 1555.

The North Norfolk coast at Blakeney is six miles away due north. There is good sailing, golf, bird watching and many good beaches nearby. The North Norfolk Steam Railway has its terminus on the outskirts of the town and connects Holt with the seaside resort of Sheringham six miles away. The cathedral city of Norwich is just twenty-six miles distant. From Norwich, there are direct trains to London Liverpool Street and Norwich Airport is a convenient worldwide gateway via Schiphol Airport.
