5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

The 'OLD KING WILLIAM' dates originally from the 1680's and boasts an extensive and illustrious history having been the former home of a renowned sea captain know as Captain Britiffe. This fine residence then became a village inn, where it takes its name, for many years until it returned to being a family home in the 1930's. Set over three floors and approaching 3000 sq. ft. of living space this charming residence boasts a wealth of period features that are blended sympathetically with modern comforts and luxuries. Whilst the property would benefit from a degree of modernisation, it does offer a rare opportunity to adapt and enhance a fine period home to your own taste, desires and layout.

The existing layout and accommodation briefly comprises; Entrance hall, impressive formal sitting room with beamed ceiling and wood burning stove, family room, spectacular 36' long kitchen/diner with vaulted and beamed ceiling and French doors onto a sun terrace, laundry room and ground floor wet room with WC. To the first floor, there are four principle bedrooms all with unique period features and a family bathroom. The second floor provides a further fifth bedroom option and two attic rooms for storage. Attached to the kitchen/dining room and accessed from the front garden is a delightful room that has previously served as an artist's studio but could easily be adapted to suit a wide variety of uses and needs.

The house sits in mature and established grounds of 3.26 acres, which surround the entire property and provide a discreet and peaceful environment. The present owner has cleverly created distinct areas within the grounds that feature sunny terraces, expansive lawns, a large paddock, which is certified for use by the Caravan & Camping Club, established vegetable plot and even an avenue of pleached hornbeams that creates a visually striking focal point in a more formal area of the garden. To the front of the property, is further gardens that provide complete privacy and a long sweeping driveway leads up to a substantial hard standing and parking area. Located in the highly desirable and rarely available North Norfolk village of Stody.

STODY Stody is a small picturesque village situated south of Holt between Hunworth and Melton Constable. It is surrounded by rolling countryside and woodland, and is perfect for walking and cycling. The Gardens at Stody Lodge are open annually with fine displays of rhododendrons and azaleas, and a beautiful water garden. The village church, St Mary's, has one of Norfolk's better preserved Saxon round towers. Stody Hall is set on a hill overlooking a delightful stream that flows into the River Glaven - a manor house has been on this site for over 500 years. The name Stody comes from the old English word 'Stodhaeg' meaning 'pasture for horses'.
