Full description

Substantial late Victorian 7 bedroom house with adjoining 2 bedroom property.


The Limes and The Barn are situated within a conservation area in the Broadland village of Catfield, which benefits from a village shop/post office, a pub and a school. Catfield lies just north of Potter Heigham and 8 miles east of Wroxham - known as the Gateway to the Broads. The market town of Stalham is a couple of miles away. The area is ideal for walking and sailing, and is a naturalist’s paradise, with Hickling Broad, the largest of the Norfolk Broads, about 2 miles away. Also good for natural history are How Hill, Horsey Mere and Strumpshaw Fen. The National Trust properties of Blickling Hall and
Fellbrigg Hall are nearby and the Cathedral city of Norwich is only 17 miles away. Sea Palling, a Blue Flag beach, is 7 miles away.


The Limes is a traditionally built, substantial, late Victorian property constructed in 1888. The house retains much fine period detail with good sash windows, ornate cornice work and ceiling mouldings, fine marble fireplaces and an elegant main staircase. The Limes and the adjoining property, The Barn, are being offered for sale together, with both on separate titles. The current owners purchased the properties in 2001 for multi-generational living. Since then, the Barn has benefited from new windows, a conservatory and full central heating, while the Limes has had four bathrooms added.

The house is approached by a gravel drive which finishes in a large turning and parking area. There is a further entrance to the rear of the property with additional parking. The Barn can be accessed from both the front and the back.

The lawn at the front of the property is bordered by some fine mature trees including lime, beech, holly and pollarded limes. The garden to the side of The Barn is also laid to lawn and has a selection of mature trees and shrubs, and a summerhouse. Outbuildings and outhouses are located at the back of both properties.

Square Footage: 5,324 sq ft
