Carbrooke Road, Ovington, Thetford, Norfolk, IP25


6 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC

A peaceful, tranquil place to live and raise a family, surrounded in countryside and a real haven for wildlife.

Approaching Ruxley House along a quiet country lane, the house stands proud with a warm red brick frontage and occupies a 2-acre plot (stms) situated within the charming village of Ovington.

The current owners have further improved the property. A real benefit is the two bedroom detached annexe, along with individual areas around the gardens, such as the 'secret garden' with beautiful mature plants and shrubs, housing a summerhouse. Furthermore, there is the main gardens with various seating areas to enjoy and a complete workshop/storeroom. Leading through a five-bar gate onto the rear field, which houses a children's playground and a stable block.

The property is a substantial family home with ample accommodation set across two floors. On the eastern side of the home, you'll find the country-style kitchen with a large bright window to the front aspect with space for a breakfast table. The formal dining room is positioned next to the kitchen, which lends itself to create an open plan living area subject to the relevant planning permission. Furthermore, there is a separate utility, housing a downstairs cloakroom. Positioned along the back of the property is the beautifully presented garden room, providing views of the grounds and countryside to the rear.

To the western side, the generous dual aspect living room provides an ideal living space for the whole family to enjoy and its perfect for entertaining guests. In addition, the living room is fitted with a wood-burning stove, ideal for cosy winter nights. There is also access into the garden room from this side of the house.

Stairs lead up to the first floor accommodation onto a spacious landing with windows facing over the country lane and the surrounding area, whilst also providing plenty of natural light to the first floor. The accommodation consists of four large double bedrooms, two of which have access to their own en-suite bathrooms. The principal bedroom and two further bedrooms also incorporate built-in wardrobes. All the bedrooms located to the rear of the home offer stunning south facing views, once again over the paddock and the surrounding farmland. Furthermore, there is a four-piece family bathroom suite.

The detached two bedroom annexe is ideal for multi-generation buyers, or perhaps an older family. There is a 19ft 9 kitchen/sitting room, which leads through into the downstairs bedroom with en-suite. Stairs take you up to the first floor, housing the second bedroom.
