4 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
'Suffield House' is a most attractive, traditional north Norfolk residence, constructed of brick and flint under a tiled roof and believed to date originally from the early 19th century. The house was substantially re-built and completely refurbished to a high standard in the early 1980s by previous owners. Considerable further improvements and alterations have been made in recent years and include the addition of a custom built and hand painted kitchen, upgraded bathrooms and shower rooms, top specification hardwood double glazed windows and doors and general cosmetic enhancements throughout. The property sits proudly in exceptional formal grounds of around 0.75 acre (STMS) and is completely surrounded on all sides to a create a very private and discreet environment.
Extending to over 2,500sq ft. and set over two floors, the accommodation is wonderfully proportioned, well-balanced and beautifully presented throughout. A traditional central front door leads through to a spacious reception hall that features an elegant oak turning staircase. A sumptuous triple aspect sitting room provides the perfect formal entertaining space and features a mellow red brick 'inglenook' style fireplace with wood burning stove and french doors that lead directly onto a sun terrace with views over the gardens. A delightful formal dining room links to both the sitting room and the main hall. A custom built, handmade Shaker kitchen/breakfast room showcases all of the elements one would want in a classic farmhouse style kitchen with in-frame Shaker cabinets capped with Kashmir granite worktops, a sociable central island, butler sink and built-in larder cupboard. Off the kitchen is a guest cloakroom and the all-important utility/boiler room. A side hall with independent access provides the perfect daily entrance with ample cloaks and boot storage. Off the side hall is a spacious and highly versatile reception room with exposed beams, panelled walls and a wood burner. This charming room currently functions as a cosy den but could easily provide the perfect home office options although there is also a small study off the main hall. The first floor features a spacious landing that provides access to the four individual bedrooms. Both the principal bedroom and the guest bedroom feature luxurious en-suite shower rooms, whilst two further double bedrooms are perfectly serviced by a generous family bath/shower room.
The house is approached from the south east through a five-bar field gate onto a gravelled drive which leads to a gravelled sweep with ample parking and turning space to the front and south of the house. The drive continues to the east of the house where there is a further gravelled parking area and where the garaging is situated. The gardens are a key feature of the property and are laid out as follows; the house is set well back from the lane behind a brick and flint wall and there is an area of lawned garden with various shrubs and ornamental trees including crab apple. To the east there is a further area of lawned garden and a large pond well stocked with yellow flag iris. The drive to the front and south of the house forms a shallow horseshoe with an in-out drive.
To the rear and north of the house there is a large, paved terrace with an oak pergola, approached by french windows off the sitting room. Steps lead up to a most attractive partly walled garden largely laid to lawn with steps leading to a further raised area of lawned garden with a sheltered terrace and wisteria clad pergola. The raised area of lawned garden has a well-stocked mixed herbaceous bed and the garden is either walled or well hedged and treed along the boundaries. A charming summerhouse is perfectly positioned to enjoy wonderful vistas over the formal lawns. An ornate brick and flint outbuilding provides flexible storage options. To the east of this there is a small orchard area and a further area suitable as a kitchen garden. Leading from the formal gardens and to the rear boundary is a lightly wooded copse and plenty of space for working areas. Wonderful views over open countryside towards Northrepps village church can be enjoyed from a discreet seating area on the rear boundary.
