5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Situated in arguably one of the most sought after locations on the fringe of the market town of Swaffham, this well-presented detached family home enjoys a non-estate position and an excellent degree of early 20th century character and charm. Originally dating back to the 1930's this spacious family home offers well-appointed living accommodation with space and flexibility to suit modern living requirements and a great opportunity for those who wish to put their own stamp on a property. Set well back from Watton Road and approached via an extensive sweeping driveway through a mature hedged frontage, Swans Nest House immediately catches the eye with its grand stature and an excellent level of curb appeal. Sitting pleasantly in mature grounds of 0.75 acres (STMS) with south westerly aspected rear gardens. During some 40 plus years at the property the current owner has sympathetically extended and maintained the home to an immaculate standard. Having found a property locally with no onward chain, the current vendor has decided that it is time to downsize from this much loved and truly special family home.
With large feature windows and dual aspects in most rooms, the property features a wonderful light and airy feel throughout. The main reception space consists of a wonderful dual aspect sitting room with an open fireplace. The dining room again features dual aspects with delightful french doors opening onto the south-westerly aspected lawn. Moving through the spacious entrance hall you will discover a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room, boot room and a downstairs shower room and separate cloakroom. Finally, to complete the ground floor is a stand-out family room measuring 34'11" x 15'2" - a truly versatile space for multiple uses, as required.
The first-floor grants access to five good sized bedrooms, with the principal bedroom enjoying dual aspects to the front and rear overlooking the pleasant gardens and leafy surroundings, and a conveniently placed dressing/utility room. Both bedrooms two and three feature a range of fitted wardrobes and bedroom furniture providing ample storage space, with bedrooms four and five also being good sized double rooms. In addition, the first floor is served by a family bathroom, a separate shower room and a cloakroom with W/C all apportioned around a good sized split level landing space.
Outside, the property is set back from Watton Road and approached via a large shingled driveway, providing ample parking for multiple vehicles and granting access to the detached double garage/workshop. The south westerly facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders containing a pleasant mixture of mature shrubs and hedging which offers a great degree of seclusion and privacy. An elevated terrace wraps round the rear of the property creating a sheltered courtyard space which has proven excellent for alfresco dining!
