5 Bedroom Other For Sale
A very rare opportunity to acquire a substantial plot on the edge of this discreet North Norfolk village with full planning consent to build a five bedroom farmhouse that extends to almost 3,200 sq ft with additional garaging for four cars. Set in the mature grounds of the former Lower Farm House, this new design takes much from the period style of a typical Norfolk farmhouse but with a more modern and stylish twist and with an internal layout that is far more practical for modern family living. Downstairs the house is largely open plan and centres on a full height atrium much as you might see in a barn conversion but allowing for the entire property to benefit from natural light. In addition to the free flowing living and entertaining space there is also a snug, a large utility room and a ground floor double bedroom suite. Upstairs the grand master bedroom suite has both a large bathroom en-suite, a walk in dressing room and a roof terrace overlooking the gardens. There are a further three double bedrooms that all share the family bathroom. Outside the garage block is linked to the main house via an enclosed garden courtyard and in addition to the four carports there is ample further secure parking. The design is a delightful blend of the traditional with the contemporary and the final finish is whatever you choose it to be.
In addition to the mature grounds in which the house will sit there are a further four acres of paddock land which has huge potential for someone wishing to create their own equestrian facility with ample room for stables, post and rail paddocks and a m鮡ge all with direct access out for safe hacking.
WHISSONSETT Whissonsett is a small village that prides itself on its sense of community. The village has a bowling green, village hall, which holds regular events, a horticultural society, keep fit group and Women's Institute, amongst other things. Within the village there are various arts activities, bringing live music to the village from groups touring the country provided by Creative Arts East. Whissonsett is in the catchment area for both the sought after and high performing Litcham School as well as Brisley Primary School with its Outstanding rated Ofsted report. 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.
