2 Bedroom House Sold
'Lagrimone' takes its name from a pretty Italian village in the province of Parma. This fine detached single storey residence oozes charm and character both inside and out and is a great example of 1930's classic architecture and style with strong elements of the lingering 'Art Deco' period. An impressive double fronted façade is embellished with soft buff and mellow red brick decorations whilst a pantile roof caps two attractive bay windows overlooking the deep frontage. The current owners have extensively renovated and remodelled this fine home with a sympathetic and strong purist approach to create a wonderful home fit for modern life and comforts yet retaining classic style and elegance of the era. The gardens are no exception and have been expertly crafted and designed to provide a wonderful environment to enjoy from every angle. The attention to detail and finish is exceptional and a stylish interior design fuses effortlessly with period features like exposed wood floors, picture rails, decorative mouldings and original doors.
Set over a single floor with bonus loft room above and a detached garage, the property extends over 1300 sq. ft. and is beautifully presented throughout. A simple yet classic layout all works off a central hall and briefly comprises a lounge with wood-burner and bay window overlooking the gardens, delightful formal dining room with a decorative arch opening to the central hall, an exquisite kitchen with bespoke hand finished cabinets and a guest cloakroom. A charming master bedroom connects to a luxurious bathroom and a generous second/guest bedroom enjoys a bay window view over the gardens. The accommodation is completed by a versatile room that was cleverly adapted from an original wash house and now serves as a spacious utility/laundry room but has previously served as a third bedroom option.
The generous gated grounds wrap around all sides of the property to create a magical environment. From the lane, private gates open onto a long shingle laid driveway with parking for several cars and access to the detached garage. A central pathway dissects shaped and manicured lawns and leads up to the front door. On the south elevation a delightful sheltered sun terrace that is perfectly placed to enjoy the sunny aspect and precise soft landscaping, delivers a very aesthetically pleasing space. Beyond the sun terrace a neatly organised area with raised vegetable and herb beds. 'Lagrimone' commands a very special location on Moor End Lane in the pretty and traditional Norfolk village of Stibbard. This exceptionally quiet and discreet location enjoys a high degree of privacy and with a no-through road set up there is very little noise pollution other than the calming rhythm of local wildlife.
LOCATION Stibbard is a popular rural village situated on the Norwich side of Fakenham. The village has a primary school, church and a pub, The Ordnance Arms. Further amenities can be found in the surrounding villages. Stibbard is within easy reach of the historic market town of Fakenham which is often called the Gateway to the north Norfolk Coast as it's well positioned for the coast and other local attractions such as Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park and Fakenham Racecourse. Also within easy reach are Holkham Hall, Sandringham and the Thursford Collection of steam engines and funfair rides with its wonderful Christmas Spectacular Show - the largest of its kind in England.
