Description

A stunning contemporary house in a conservation area overlooking open countryside on the edge of this popular market town. Fairways was built by the current owners in 2010 and is of partly oak framed construction with extensive use of brick and flint inspired by the traditional local architecture. The property occupies an idyllic position within a conservation area with fine countryside views yet on the outskirts of the thriving market town of Aylsham. The house was built to a very high standard and specification by a renowned local builder with extensive use of custom built joinery throughout with fine oak floors and doors. The house has exceedingly spacious accommodation arranged mostly on one level and cleverly designed to take full advantage of the position with views over the garden and fields beyond. There is a stunning kitchen/dining/living room opening onto a covered terrace and loggia. The custom built kitchen is by English Hardwood Designs as are the wardrobes, cupboards/linen presses in many of the bedrooms. The large sitting room is in the centre of the house, also with French windows onto the terrace overlooking the garden and there are three bedrooms and two bathroom on the ground floor with a large master bedroom, dressing room and bathroom on the first floor and a study area at the top of the landing. Including the garaging the property extends to about 3,500 square feet.

OUTSIDE
The house is approached by an ample drive leading to a large turning and parking area situated to the east of the house where the oak framed open fronted garaging is also situated.

The beautifully landscaped gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property and are arranged as follows. To the south of the house there are areas of lawn with mixed shrubberies and borders edged with clipped box. The main part of the garden lies to the rear of the house with formal lawns bordered by clipped box hedging, with a delightful south and west facing terrace overlooking the lawn. Approached by French windows from the kitchen there is a large covered veranda or loggia from which steps lead down to the garden. There is a further large terrace and loggia also approached by French windows from the drawing room and kitchen/dining room as well as the principal ground floor bedroom. This also has steps leading down to and overlooking the garden and fields beyond. The garden is separated from the surrounding meadow and fields by mixed hedging and there are fine views from the elevated position of the house over the surrounding meadows and beyond to the Bure Valley and Blickling Estate, in the ownership of the National Trust. The garden contains a variety of ornamental trees including flowering cherry, jacquemontii, silver birch and various exotic maples. The property and gardens extend to about 0.508 of an acre.
