Location Straddling the A148 Cromer Road the Georgian market town of Holt boasts many well-preserved Georgian buildings, alongside an exciting range of independent shopping, to include delicatessen and tea shops, art galleries, clothing and gift shops, together with large department store, supermarket, banks, building societies, library and post office. The town is 23 miles north of the City of Norwich, 9 miles west of Cromer and some 35 miles east of King's Lynn. The National Rail network can be accessed at Sheringham, just over 6 miles via the Bittern Line into Norwich. The delightful North Norfolk coast is just some three miles, and Holt Country Park on the outskirts of the town. 

Description Very occasionally we are invited to properties that are truly special, it might be the location, style, quality or appearance, in our opinion Apple Pickers Barn is for all of these reasons.

Originally a 1950's detached bungalow and small barn, the present owners spotted an opportunity to create a unique residence tucked away down a long driveway off Grove Lane. The property was built and designed by the present owners with the intention of creating versatile space finished to an extremely high standard and specification and a real attention to detail. Whilst the ground floor is largely open plan the rooms are very clear in their function at the centre of which is a stunning reception hall with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and double doors with large adjacent windows mirroring the entrance and leading onto a beautiful courtyard terrace ideal for morning sun. The beams and vaulted ceilings follow through into the exceptionally well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and formal dining room. The dining room along with the spacious and comfortable sitting room and current dressing room all have French doors leading into the gardens on the south and east sides of the property. The already mentioned dressing room has a shower room off and also leads through to the master bedroom with further shower room. If required it would be very easy to form two separate bedrooms to complement the two double bedrooms on the first floor, both of which have wardrobing and their own en-suite.

The accommodation is both double glazed and gas centrally heated with radiators where carpeted and under floor where hard surfaced. All the internal doors are Canadian pine and in addition to the Everhot electric cooking range in the kitchen there is a Miele integrated dishwasher and two tall fridge/freezers.

The gardens are the finale to this wonderful home and completely surround the property with two sets of French doors leading from the sitting room to a wonderful landscaped and sunken garden with surrounding terraces and a rich mix of specimen planting, adding variety and texture and blurring the boundaries which offer total privacy and seclusion. Even the gravel driveway with its random paving is a very useable addition to the garden but also gives access to a double cart shed providing garaging.

Whether you are seeking a permanent or holiday home, Apple Pickers Barn is an exceptional home deserving closer inspection.
