If you love the idea of a tranquil life in the middle of the countryside, with very few neighbours, growing fruit and vegetables, keeping chickens, in a cottage garden and retiring after a long day into a naturally charming & spacious CHAIN FREE home, dating back to the mid 19th Century.

The home is situated on a peaceful country lane in the village of Guestwick. It is rare to find a home in such a scenic rural location but with the fine market town of Reepham, which has good every-day shopping facilities.
We believe this home would also be a wonderful place to raise a small family surrounded by nature but also, and equally for its nearby renowned schooling options.
Reepham has a Primary School, the highly regarded Reepham High School and Sixth Form College. The Norfolk coast is approximately 30 minutes drive away, Aylsham is within 11 miles, Holt and Gresham School is within 10 miles. Norwich has a comprehensive range of commercial, entertainment, cultural and shopping facilities. Norwich Railway Station has a regular service to London Liverpool Street (about 110 minutes) and Cambridge (about 110 minutes). The expanding Norwich internal Airport caters for domestic flights and international destinations beyond.

The home is enclosed by a 'soft red' Victorian brick wall and a handmade oak gate which leads to a lawned front garden with well established beds and shrub borders. The home is very charming to look at and is complimented by a seldom used stable door which really is more of a decorative touch as the entrance hall is situated to the rear of the home.
A pathway leads to the side of the property with a trellised area to the side, providing access to an enclosed private drive with parking for 2 cars and a motorhome. Continue forwards into the exceptional private West Facing rear garden which is approx 80ft x 50ft and is naturally enclosed to the sides with trees and shrubs. There is currently a chicken coupe which is enclosed by a pretty picket fence, a patio area and is surrounded by fields and countryside on all sides, these can be fully appreciated from the first floor of the home.
As you pass the rear entrance to the home there a gate which leads into an enclosed courtyard garden which is a totally private and sheltered space away from the wind to relax in privacy and perhaps read a good book in the sunshine.
A 12ft Outbuilding is also accessed from here, which has power and light and water which would make it an ideal Utility room.

Enter the home into the rear hall which provides access to all of the ground floor rooms, family bathroom, kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room, and a lovely original turned wooden staircase leading to the first floor.

If you love informal but highly practical cottage kitchens, it is hard to not to feel instantly attracted to this extremely cosy room which is completed by a rangemaster cooker and walk in pantry. A full height glazed door offers a view into the enclosed courtyard garden and to the left it opens into the formal sitting room.
The view out across the inglenook fireplace and crackling woodburner offers a picture perfect rural view over the cottage garden to front.

The family bathroom benefits from a modern suite which features a P-shaped bath, low level W.C and handwash basin and a heated towel rail.

Upstairs the landing provides access to a convenient cloakroom, three bedrooms (2 generous double rooms with fitted wardrobes) and 1 single bedroom, all offering picturesque rural views over fields and woodlands beyond.
