The town is renowned for its boutique shopping, Byfords delicatessen, good restaurants and pubs and further specialist and everyday shopping. There are also banking and health facilities within the town and private education at Greshams School, with Beeston Preparatory School further along the coast to the east. Melton Constable and Briston (approximately 3 miles) also offer good local amenities including two butchers, post office and general stores.

The famous North Norfolk Coast is approximately 12 miles to the north at Blakeney, with the village and coastline an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and deservedly popular with ornithologists and sailing enthusiasts. There are a plethora of restaurants and pubs in the area, seal trips at both Morston and Blakeney and a network of coastal walks through the marshes and beaches.

Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is approximately 12 miles, and has a thriving business community together with cultural and leisure activities for most tastes, good independent schools and a regular rail service to London Liverpool Street with an approximate journey time of 1 hour 50 minutes.

Description

Blue Tile Farmhouse is a most attractive Grade II listed family home, with a superb range of traditional and modern outbuildings together with about 11 acres of delightful grounds including meadowland, gardens and paddock. The property offers a unique opportunity and could be used in a variety of ways.

The south facing house, believed to date back to 1462 with later additions and alterations, is constructed of brick and flint under a glazed pantile roof, with period detail throughout. The house enjoys fine proportions and adaptable accommodation, including an extensive attic space that could be utilised for further bedrooms or similar.

The house has a spacious feel, with plenty of natural light and is well arranged. A rear hall provides access to the kitchen/breakfast room, with pantry, and through to the sitting room with dining area and feature fireplace. Other rooms of note include the drawing room and a useful utility room. The bedrooms are all on the first floor, with an en-suite shower to the main bedroom, with a family bathroom for the remaining three bedrooms.

The house was the subject of a thorough renovation programme in the mid-1980s, and it would be fair to say the house would now benefit from modernisation.

OUTBUILDINGS
The property has a fantastic range of traditional and more modern buildings, set to the north and northeast of the main house. The main traditional barns are closest to the main house, with a most attractive two storey barn of former stabling and harness room with hayloft above. Further stabling is attached to the main barn, and open fronted livestock barn. A substantial former dairy room is to the northwest, with integral loose boxes, and a further traditional brick and flint barn to the west, with established wisteria trained to the south wall. To the north are two large general purpose buildings on concrete bases, measuring 44’10” x 32’7” and 60’8” x 30’4” respectively.

Other buildings include a two bay carport with integral storage room, kennels, and Portakabin providing office and showroom space.

The barns have been used for agricultural purposes for many years and have been well maintained.

OUTSIDE
Blue Tile Farmhouse is approached from the south, through a double set of gates set between brick and flint walls, onto a gravel drive drawing through to the main yard of the property where there is plenty of parking.

The gardens and grounds are a delightful feature of the property and are arranged as follows; to the south is an area of lawn, bordered by low brick and flint wall and separated from the house by a wide shingle path, and with mature trees on the boundary. The path continues over the main drive to a further area of lawn with pond and willow tree. The main gardens are to the west of the house, through beech hedging, with a large expanse of lawn sweeping away from the house, with rose beds, shrubs, established orchard and a shelter belt of woodland on the boundary.

To the north of the barns is a wonderful meadow and paddock, with a boundary of mixed hedging and fine views of surrounding farmland and meadows. Part of the meadow has been used as a private air strip for light aircraft. There are further paddocks to the west of the buildings.

The land in all extends to about 11.5 acres.

Square Footage: 13,601 sq ft
