Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Norfolk Agents are delighted to offer this highly impressive family home, occupying mature grounds of just over 2.5 acres (sts) with exceptional and far-reaching views of the neighbouring countryside. The property was extensively refurbished by the current owners in 2000, with a substantial extension being added at the same time, increasing the total floor area to over 3,300 sq./ft.

The accommodation comprises reception hall, 26ft kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, garden room with vaulted ceilings, sitting room, dining room, study, utility room, store and cloakroom on the ground floor; with five double bedrooms and the family bathroom arranged around the first-floor landing. Bedrooms 1 and 2 enjoy the added luxury of en-suite facilities, with the master room also having a large walk-in wardrobe.

Outside, the house is approached over a shingle driveway (the first section of which is shared with a neighbouring property) which leads past the rear of the house to the double garage and parking area. The south facing garden is totally private and includes a neatly maintained lawn and paved terrace, with a variety of established trees adding to the feeling of privacy and seclusion. The tranquil surroundings, coupled with the rural setting, attract various species of bird and other wildlife. In addition to the formal gardens, there is also an enclosed paddock (approx. 1.1 acres) which adjoins the eastern boundary.

The property is situated in the hamlet of County School, on the historic site of the former Norfolk County School and subsequent Watts Naval Training School, on the outskirts of North Elmham. The hamlet is private with no public access. Around 200 yards to the south-west of the house, there is a 6-acre privately managed woodland which is collectively owned and maintained by the Residents Association of County School. The private woodland adjoins several hundred further acres of Forestry Commission owned woodland, with miles of paths making the area a dog walkers paradise. The western boundary of the woodland fronts on to the River Wensum, upon which the residents have fishing rights.

The nearby village of North Elmham has an active community and provides a range of amenities including a post office and tea rooms, two pubs, sports field, doctor's surgery and village hall; however, it should be noted that the property officially falls within the parish of Bintree, meaning that residents of the County School site are eligible to attend the highly regarded High School and College in nearby Reepham.
