Location The property is set back off Connaught Road, in the heart of Attleborough close to other character properties. In short walking distance is a host of local shops and businesses, as well as national retailers including a Sainsbury's and Lidl supermarket. The towns railway station is also just a short walk away on Station Road and provides a link through to Norwich, Ely and Cambridge. Attleborough is also set along the A11, with fast access to both Wymondham and Norwich city centre. The road also leads out of the county, connecting other major routes (A14 and M11).  

The Property The Thatched House really is a gem, having been owned within the same family for over 75 years, this Grade II Listed property, dating back to early 18th century, has an abundance of character, including exposed beams throughout, befitting of the period in which it was built. In terms of accommodation, both the sitting room and formal dining room are of generous size, with a kitchen located centrally within the property. There are two separate staircases leading to the first floor bedrooms, both staircases differ in style. The solid wooden floors on the landings bow and slope, as you would expect in a house of this age, which only adds to the overall charm of the property. The properties condition, requiring extensive renovation, allows for the next buyer to add their personality and continue the story of this beautiful home.
 

Outside You approach the house from a long driveway, passing a large, lawn front garden with mature shrubs and hedging that border the garden. This theme continues along the driveway and leads to the outbuilding/garage. A walled opening leads to the rear garden which has various trees and shrubs inset, with an opening to a large lawn. The overall plot measures 0.59 acre.

The outbuilding has a high pitch, and has been used as a garaging/ storage in its recent past, although provides scope to be converted into further accommodation (subject to obtaining relevant planning etc). 

Services Mains electricity, water and gas are connected to the property. A gas boiler provides domestic hot water and heating to the radiators throughout the property.  

Directions From Wymondham head southwards along the A11 and take the first exit signposted Attleborough. Proceed along Norwich Road towards the town centre, joining the 'one way system' onto Connaught Road. Continue past the turn for Station Road (sign posted Old Buckenham) and The Thatched House will be found immediately on the left hand side.
