A charming village house in walled garden


The picturesque village of Trunch is still a thriving community with a fine 14th century church, and retains a village shop/post office stores and popular public house. The coast at Mundesley is only 2 miles and has excellent sandy beaches whilst the market towns of North Walsham and Aylsham are 3 and 8 miles respectively providing everyday and specialist shopping facilities, including a Waitrose at North Walsham. The thriving town of Holt, renowned for its boutique independent shops, Byfords delicatessen and Gresham School, is about 12 miles. Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is approximately 19 miles, and has a thriving business community together with cultural and leisure activities for most tastes and a regular rail service to London Liverpool Street with a journey time of approximately 1 hour 50 minutes. The city also has an increasingly impressive education sector at all ages and levels.


Vine Cottage is a charming Grade II listed village house, believed to date back to 1650, and constructed of brick and flint under a thatched roof. The house retains fine period detail with exposed beams, chamfered in places, open fireplaces and distinctive octagonal chimney flues.

Although cottage in name, the house enjoys generously proportioned rooms, in particular the sitting room and dining room, with all rooms enjoying good views of the gardens and village with the church to the west. There are three spacious bedrooms, including a ground floor bedroom with adjoining shower room, and there are further useful rooms such as a utility, reception room with French doors out to the garden, rear hall and pantry.

The property has been well maintained but would now benefit from cosmetic updating.

The property is approached from the south, through a wooden five bar gate framed by a brick and flint wall and over a gravelled drive to a parking and turning area adjoining the house and garage. The mature gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of the property, and are ring fenced by brick and flint wall. The main lawn and garden is to the east of the house, interspersed with shrubs, herbaceous beds, mature trees and a summer house. To the west of the house is a further area of lawn, enclosed by a low brick and flint wall, with herbaceous beds, shrubs and a productive grapevine trained to the front of the house. This area of garden has a pedestrian gate out to the village, with gravelled path to the front of the house. The gardens in all extend to 0.36 of an acre (est).

Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage.
