Key features


Full description

Billingford House is an attractive detached three-storey period house which would make a comfortable family home. The house incorporates a large number of period features, including sash shuttered windows, original fireplaces and ceiling roses to name but a few.

The accommodation, of which the majority is south west facing, is well proportioned and offers light, airy and spacious rooms throughout, all of which benefit from full ceiling heights. The principle reception rooms all benefit from original fireplaces and one has a bay window. The kitchen benefits from an oil-fired Aga built into a recess.

Billingford House is located in the attractive rural village of Billingford in an elevated position with close access to the A140. Billingford House is set in extensive grounds and is accessed via a sweeping drive to the east which leads to a turning circle to the front. There is a secondary access to the west via a private tarmac drive. The boundaries comprise mature trees and there is a partially fenced paddock to the north. The village of Billingford is located around 1 mile from the A140 and 4 miles from Diss and the train station. Diss benefits from a mainline railway connection to London (Liverpool Street Station) taking 1 hour 30 minutes, which runs twice an hour. The city of Norwich is around 24 miles to the north, which benefits from an international airport.

The house benefits from two separate private drives, one from the A140 and the other from the A143, which lead to a turning circle at the front of the house. There is ample space for multiple cars at the property, as well as a detached secure double garage.
