££1,750,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

"A sanctuary of a home. Simply put, Beechgrove is one of the finest residences in Dereham".

Dating back to 1947, Beechgrove has been offering families discretion and seclusion among its (approximately) 2.25 acres (sts) of tranquil landscaped gardens. Resting within iconic Norfolk- brick and flint walls, you'll discover a secret oasis.

Splendid wrought iron automated gates welcome you to meander along the resin bonded driveway, eventually leading to the house. Ample parking is offered including triple garages, all of which have electric doors. On entering Beechgrove, the quality of the home is obvious, married with quality flooring and high ceilings.

"On a cool evening the wood burning stove warms the sitting room, creating a cosy feeling".

The elegant drawing room is perfect for hosting guests, whist the kitchen and dining room have been combined to enhance an excellent space for family and friends to enjoy. A large central island begs to be gathered around. The kitchen is both high in quality and beautifully finished - it offers an Aga, along with a host of integrated appliances as one might expect.

The current owners have spared no expense in converting a former integral double garage into two separate office spaces - perfect for those working from home. Also on the ground floor, there is a beautiful library with a cosy wood burning stove, a study, stairs to a cellar, WC and a stunning conservatory offering expansive views of the extensive well-stocked gardens.

But it is beyond the main home that a secret escape is waiting. Beneath a vaulted ceiling, a heated pool glistens temptingly, kept warm by renewable energy (further information can be provided). A Jacuzzi, shower room with WC and kitchen area/utility complete this hideaway from the world outside. This is a space to escape to alone, or share with others, enjoying the use of a dining and barbeque area immediately next to the pool hall. Trifold doors to the south and west elevations make this a favourite spot for sun lovers on those warmer days.

The first floor to the house offers five bedrooms in total, bathroom, shower room and a further separate WC. Fitted wardrobes feature in abundance and it should be noted that there is already a useful loft room above, which could provide potential for a sixth bedroom.

Beyond, fascinating gardens unfold - superb lawns, courtyard areas, impressive stable block, fruit and vegetable gardens, Alitex glasshouse, ponds with a picturesque gazebo, further outbuildings for storage and a wealth of flora and fauna. There is an abundance of flourishing colour at every corner.

The property has a biomass boiler - in addition to the solar panels. These renewable energy sources contribute very significantly to the running costs of the house.

It is hard to put into words the impact of this fabulous home, visit it, and you may never want to leave.

LOCATION Nestled in the Brecklands, in the heart of the county, Dereham is a classic country market town and an architectural haven with plenty of Georgian gems set on generous plots, blended with more recent developments.

In the eighth century, it is said that the youngest daughter of Anna, King of East Anglia, prayed for a miracle during a famine and two deers appeared every day to provide milk for the nunnery she had founded. When a huntsman tried to snare the deer, he was thrown from his horse - believed to be an act of divine retribution - and killed. The hunt is depicted on a town sign at the entry to Butter Market from the High Street.

Today, a twice weekly market, on Tuesdays and Fridays, along with a strong cohort of independent and specialist shops and free parking make the town a fabulous place for an afternoon spent browsing. Look out for the town's other historic landmarks which include the Mid-Norfolk Railway, a heritage line which runs 1950s railcars to Wymondham Abbey, Dereham Windmill, a Grade II listed building which was saved from the brink of destruction, and Bishop Bonner's Cottage, established in 1502 and believed to be the oldest building in town.

Heritage buffs are spoilt for choice with living museum Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse just a few minutes out of town, or step back in time and adventure at Castle Acre Castle and Priory, an 11th century monastic site, and National Trust property Oxburgh Hall, which is half an hour's drive away.

When you've worked up an appetite exploring, Dereham is home to one of Norfolk's best pubs, The Brisley Bell, which has a first-rate menu and a warm welcome which has earned it multiple awards, or spice things up with a tasty dish at Spice Fusion curry house. Otherwise head to The Old Dairy and stock up on its artisan bread and produce for an easy dine-in experience.

With good local schools, a leisure centre and golf course, Dereham and its surrounding villages are a fantastic spot to enjoy the best of Norfolk country living with easy commuting access to Norwich and the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea, just 22 miles away. Come discover a Norfolk gem.

SERVICES CONNECTED The property is connected to mains electricity, gas, water and drainage. Heating is via a Biomass pellet boiler and 6 tonne store. Solar PV panels installed. Telephone, broadband and 4G broadband connections.
