4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
An opportunity not to be missed! Available for sale for the first time in over 50 years, this chain free period residence comes with a detached, unconverted flint barn and a building plot with outline planning permission granted for a detached bungalow.
Cambridge House enjoys a fabulous position residing on the fringe of Necton, a popular well-served village in the heart of Norfolk. Standing proud within a plot of 0.5 acre (STMS), the property's position on Ketts Hill affords its owner the convenience of day-to-day life with amenities, schooling, and public transport within walking distance, yet direct access within minutes to glorious countryside walks. In addition, the historic market town of Swaffham is within easy reach providing a wide range of amenities and a traditional Saturday market.
To the right-hand side of the property, the owners have obtained outline planning permission to erect a detached bungalow, a perfect opportunity to have the whole family nearby or alternatively an excellent investment. The building plot and house can be sold together or by separate negotiation.
The internal accommodation covers approximately, 1,673 sq. ft., with the ground floor featuring two front reception rooms with large bay windows flooding the property with natural light. The sitting room houses an inset fireplace with a wood burning stove, sitting on a pamment hearth. The dining room, with beautiful parquet flooring, leads through into the kitchen, located to the rear and overlooking the garden.
The country style kitchen includes a range of solid wood units and offers the potential to create an open plan space by knocking the existing wall through into the dining room. There is a separate utility room with more storage and a rear lobby housing a downstairs cloakroom. The remaining space downstairs includes an enclosed porch and a rear entrance hallway.
Upstairs currently houses four bedrooms and a shower room. The two front bedrooms again benefit from a good degree of natural light with large bay windows the front aspect, and bedroom one has plumbing installed which could benefit from a small en-suite.
The external space benefits from a mixture of well-maintained boundaries comprising walls, panelled fencing and hedging, completely enclosing the grounds. There is a large sweeping driveway providing ample parking space, along with lawned gardens and established trees.
NECTON Sat between Swaffham and Dereham, just off the A47 main route between King's Lynn and Norwich, Necton offers the best of both traditional, rural living in the heart of the Brecklands along with easy access to every point of the county compass. A commuter's idyllic hideaway definitely, but with Thetford Forest just 30 minutes away, there's plenty of adventuring to be had for those who love to explore the great outdoors - load up the bikes to enjoy the cool of the forest trails on a hot summer's day, challenge yourselves on the high wires at Go Ape, or simply unpack a picnic under the towering trees and reconnect with nature.
Historically, Necton appears in the Domesday Book as Nechetuna, meaning 'town or settlement by a neck of land' as it sits at the foot of a ridge, and Grade I listed All Saints' church has a vast hammer beam and arch braced roof with carved angels which is a fabulous place to sit and contemplate - the Countess of Warwick is said to be buried in the churchyard.
Follow Tuns Road a little further and turn into Mill Street which once was a centre of industry when a five-storey windmill ground flour from crops grown in surrounding farmland. By 1970, the once towering building had been converted into a single-storey residence with a flat roof and this has been a shop through the decades. Enjoy a glass and a home cooked meal at the local pub, the appropriately named The Windmill Inn. Looking to the future, just outside Necton a new sub-station will harness energy from off-shore wind farms on the east coast, once again putting this thriving village community on the map.
