4 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
Located in the central Norfolk village of Wendling, this charming period detached cottage offers a wealth of character, along with some local history. Formerly used as a village school in the mid-1800s and benefits from a series of extensions, providing space for the whole family to enjoy. Wendling is a semi-rural village with regular public transport with Norfolk's countryside on your doorstep, whilst still accessible to local amenities in the close by historic market town of East Dereham.
The cottage has retained much of its original character, the extensions has vastly improved not only the living space but provides four bedrooms, three being doubles, and even granny annex potential utilising the family room which could be turned into a self-contained annexe, subject to the relevant planning permission.
Entering the home into a central hallway, you're greeted by original wooden flooring guiding you further into the property. On the ground floor, there is a generous open plan living / dining room, where tall windows to the front aspect allow the light to flood into the property, highlighting the original features and dual fireplaces. Furthermore, there is a family room to the side with vaulted ceilings; an ideal place for an office or kids' playroom. The neighbouring kitchenette enables the potential for a granny annexe/multigeneration living and even opportunity to create a self contained annexe by extending the current space, subject to the relevant permissions.
The comprehensive, well-appointed kitchen enjoys bespoke handmade country style units and a separate utility room.
The extension to the rear has created four bedrooms and a generously sized family bathroom upstairs and the downstairs family room could be used as a fifth bedroom for growing families.
Outside there is a shingled driveway providing ample off-road parking with a five bar gate leading to further gravelled parking area and garaging with an electric car charging point. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and evergreens providing a wash of colour and making an ideal place to sit out and enjoy. Furthermore, the garden extends beyond the shingled drive to a readymade allotment, an ideal vegetable patch providing some of the good life and an impressive 42ft chicken coop/dog kennel.
