4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale
Located in the ever popular village of Whissonsett, Bee Cottage has been a much loved home for its current owners for the last 19 years. During their tenure it's been extended and upgraded to an excellent standard.
Whilst the property has a front door, it is seldom used, and the current owners walk down the side of the house to enter through the boot room - quite common in Norfolk and much more practical after a day at the beach or a long muddy winters walk! The boot room is part of the extension which was completed in 2014, and which almost doubled the size of the original property. The room has plenty of space to keep muddy boots and dogs whilst the family dry off and the utility room flows nicely off from here, convenient to drop off those dirty clothes.
There is a rear hallway connecting the new to the old and off this is a downstairs WC and a garden room which benefits from views on to the gorgeous garden, accessed through large double glass doors helping this room in being a bright and airy space.
Walking through into the original cottage, we arrive in the wonderful country style kitchen/dining room, with space enough for a small table it's perfect to cook up a storm whilst the children are busy working away on schoolwork at the table.
The accommodation flows seamlessly into the sitting room with log burner and feature exposed brick fireplace.
The central staircase leads up to three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
To the left of the central staircase we step back into the new extension, which could be used as a completely separate annexe, be it for multi-generational living or an older child needing more space. On the ground floor is what is currently being used as snug but could be used in any number of different ways - a downstairs bedroom springs to mind as there is a shower room leading off this room. However useful this extension, perhaps the real highlight is the feature brick and flint wall that reminds you of the real age and beauty of the original home.
Outside and to the rear is a long garden mainly laid to lawn with a few mature trees and shurbs to the front we find lawn and parking for several cars.
WHISSONSETT A small village that prides itself on its sense of community, Whissonsett has a bowling green, village hall, which holds regular events, a horticultural society, keep fit group and Women's Institute, amongst other things. Whissonsett is in the catchment area for both the sought after and high performing Litcham School as well as Brisley Primary Academy. St Mary's Church dates in part to the 14th and 15th centuries and features a particularly wide nave, a tower with buttresses and battlements with gargoyles. The village sign, designed by a villager features an apple (referring to the orchards run by the Stangroom family), stocks (no longer in the village), a well (no longer the source of water but still in existence) and a windmill (the village used to have two windmills). The market town of Fakenham is approximately four miles away whilst Dereham is a little further, approximately seven miles away.
