Location The property is located with good views over adjoining farmland towards the Thurning end of the village and just a short stroll from the Explores Bar (formally the Green Man Public Inn). Briston is a popular North Norfolk village well known for its many facilities including two every-day stores (one with post office), butcher, baker, grocer, children's nursery, primary school and doctor's surgery located on the Briston/Melton Constable boundary. The old market town of Holt offers some of the best shopping facilities to be found in North Norfolk including an excellent range of delicatessens, gift shops, antique centres, art galleries, cafes and restaurants and many other services. The centre of the Cathedral City of Norwich (21 miles) can be reached in about 45 minutes by car as can Kings Lynn (33 Miles) and takes about 55 minutes. The nearest coastline is at Blakeney (10 miles) reachable in about 20 minutes.
Description The property was designed by a local architectural designer and believed to date back to the late 1980's. The current owner has greatly improved and updated the property. The overall layout gives a 'villa' feel about it and would appeal to anyone who needs predominantly ground floor accommodation but also has a superb first floor master bedroom suite. Features include a very spacious sitting room with lots of natural light and a fireplace with wood burner. This room is open plan to the 'atrium which will appeal strongly to anyone wanting to display many paintings and has a dominant feature of the attractive wrought iron spiral staircase. Off this room is the dining room with double doors straight out into the garden. The kitchen is accessed both from this room and the inner hall and is well proportioned. Also downstairs are two double size bedrooms and a quality bathroom.
Upstairs there is an impressive master bedroom 14' 7" x 13' with access straight onto a large balcony with good rural views and a sunny aspect. Also off the main bedroom is a decent size dressing area leading through to an en-suite shower room with WC.
Outside, the whole plot measures a fraction over a quarter acre (0.255 acres) with the property sitting in the centre giving a tremendous amount of parking space to the front; ideal for storing a caravan and boat. Also to the front is the timber built 'Cart Barn' with half this building being closed in with double doors and perfect to be used as a workshop and the other half arranged as a car port/cart shed.
To the back of the property is a delightful easy to maintain garden and paved area leads to the detached purpose built Artist's Studio with wc and rear store. This could be used potentially as an annex for an elderly relative or office (subject to planning). The main room measures 17'10 x 13'9 with attractive old exposed beams and ample light from the double glazed windows and ceiling lights etc.
