5 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
Quietly positioned on the eastern edge of the little known north Norfolk village of Sedgeford, Littleport Farm is a substantial detached red brick house, that has the rare attribute of sitting in just under four acres (stms) of post and rail paddocks.
Set well back from the road with a large gravelled drive to the front, the house was built around 40 years ago and is very well balanced. The property features an abundance of living and entertaining space on the ground floor, as well as generous accommodation on the first floor. All the principal rooms are orientated to the south to not only enjoy the natural light, but also the far reaching views over the paddocks and open farmland beyond. Whilst the current arrangement on the ground floor has clearly worked very well for many years, there is plenty of scope to re-arrange and create a more free flowing and contemporary space should one wish. What is now the games room would make a wonderful and large kitchen family room and the attached garage on the eastern side of the house could easily become a large ground floor double bedroom suite, ideal for multi generational living or as separate guest accommodation.
To the side of the main house (and with its own separate gateway and drive out to the main road) is a period carrstone and red brick single story barn, benefiting from power and lighting, with an open two bay cart shed to one end. The barn has recently been completely re-roofed, along with a new concrete floor laid and as such would make an ideal workshop, garage or could be used for equine purposes. Alternatively, and subject to the usual consents, it could also easily be converted into a completely separate and self-contained annexe, whether for providing an extra income from holiday letting or as further guest accommodation.
Finally, at the rear we have what is clearly Littleport Farm's unique selling point, its paddocks and stables. The current stable block comprises three stables and a tack room, all set on a concrete base. The stables have not been used for several years and are now in need of either some refurbishment or replacement and the block sits in the smaller of the three paddocks, adjacent to the house. The largest paddock is approximately two acres (stms) and benefits from having an automatic water supply, with the one to its east being approximately one acre (stms) and has the wonderful benefit of having direct access out onto The Peddars Way, allowing for safe hacking either just five miles north to the beautiful sandy beaches of Holme Next The Sea or as far south as you wish to take your horse!
Littleport Farm has been a much loved family home for many years and as such has been well maintained. However, it would now benefit from new ownership so that the next generation can appreciate and enjoy its facilities to their full.
