Hills Road, Saham Hills, Thetford, Norfolk, IP25


5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Sowerbys are delighted to presented Allcrest, a spacious detached family home, set back from the road, sitting on a substantial plot extending to 0.9 acres (STMS). The property is approached along a highly regarded road, within the extremely popular village of Saham Hills, enjoying front and rear landscaped gardens which overlook neighbouring countryside to the rear aspect.

The current vendor has owned the property for almost 30 years and it has undergone a series of extensions and alterations, such as an adjoining two-bedroom self-contained annexe, which is useful for multigeneration living and caters for disabled use. This accommodation could also be used for a larger family and included within the main house. The detached double garage and adjoining workshop are large enough to run a business from home, alternatively, the workshop could be converted into an 'at home' office or further living space (STPP). In addition, there is a generous detached pool house, housing an impressive 40 ft. 2 pool area, boiler road and changing room.
The downstairs accommodation comprises an open plan living/dining room, extending to 33 ft. 1, separated by a wrought iron spiral staircase with marble steps, a real feature of the home. The triple aspect living room extends to 22 ft. which features an impressive York stone surround fireplace and an open fire. Wide sliding patio doors and steps down lead into the 30 ft. 2 triple aspect family/garden room, a real versatile space that currently has a brick-built bar and large patio doors onto the rear patio, overlooking the gardens. The open plan dining room has an archway into the kitchen with decorative shelfs either side and features a full height picture window, looking into the family room. The kitchen has been fitted with quality wall and base gloss units, complemented by Corian worksurfaces and wall mounted glazed cabinets. In addition to this there is an integrated wall mounted double oven, ceramic hobs and a stylish extractor fan.

Leading upstairs via the spiral staircase, granting access to three of the five bedrooms. All three double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and enjoy views over the front and rear gardens. The well-appointed upstairs shower room has been fitted with high fixtures and fittings, including a large walk-in double shower cubicle, integral toilet and white hand basin with built-in storage and Corian surfaces.

The self-contained annexe can currently be accessed independently or via the rear hallway. The annexe comprises two bedrooms, a fitted bathroom and an optional living room which could be used as further living space for the main house, if required. The potential annexe kitchen is the current utility room which houses fitted units but would need an oven installed for the annexe to be completely self-contained.


Externally the property has a landscaped lawned front garden, along with mature trees providing privacy from the road. Beside the garden is the impressive brick-weave driveway onto an expanding forecourt and parking area providing parking spaces for several vehicles. Leading around to the side of the house is a substantial detached double garage of cavity wall and tile construction, benefiting from electronically operated door and separate workshop with enclosed loft space. Additionally, there are double gates beside the garage, providing additional secure parking and access into the rear garden.

The beautiful, landscaped park-like gardens and grounds are laid to well-maintained informal lawns and contain fine mature trees, flower and shrub beds. There is a charming timber summerhouse with power connected and small adjacent patio. There is also a large 'sun trap' patio and terrace directly adjacent to the rear of the house, including a private area for use by the occupier of the annexe. The grounds are enclosed mainly by leylandii hedging, however, the rear boundary has post and rail fencing which allows marvellous views from the property over scenic farm and woodland lying to the south of the property.


The garage and workshop have power, light and UPVC sealed unit doors and windows. Between the house and garage block is a pair of quality painted wooden security gates enabling vehicular access to a further brick-weave hardstanding to the side of the house.

The detached pool house lies a short distance from the house and is of mainly UPVC construction with sealed unit double glazing and polycarbonate roof. The pool itself has a depth of four feet (1.21m), curbed steps, handrail and is fitted with a roller cover. The pool house has an independent central heating system, dehumidifier, air ventilation system, non-slip flooring and three sets of patio doors. It also benefits from an adjacent brick-built changing room (with shower and WC) and boiler room.
