Market Street, Shipdham, Thetford, Norfolk, IP25

££500,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC

When the current owners bought Cootham Lodge, it was in a rather sad and unloved condition. They immediately set about a complete programme of refurbishment and extensive improvements to the property, inclusive of converting what was the shop side of the property into a one-bedroom annex.

The natural entrance to the property is from the rear through a boot room and into the newly refurbished kitchen, a bright and airy space. Through from the kitchen we step into a large utility room, a great space to put the dirty dishes when hosting large family get togethers, which this house is perfect for.

The dining room has been stripped back and sympathetically redecorated to allow the original features to really shine through. The exposed brick inglenook with log burner is a really lovely touch.

The sitting room is another bright and spacious room brimming with character and charm. It has large windows overlooking the front of the property and access into a downstairs study or children's playroom.

Upstairs there are four good sized double bedrooms, the primary having benefit of a fully fitted walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. The current owner spent a lot of time making this room her ideal bathroom and with tiles and wallpaper throwing back to the 1920's it's a very funky room.

The property sits on roughly ΒΌ of an acre (STMS), and there is plenty of space for entertaining, children to run wild in or, if you fancied getting your hands grubby, to grow your own vegetables.

SHIPDHAM Almost two miles in length, Shipdham is Norfolk's longest village nestled between the market towns of Watton and Dereham in the Breckland region and a designated Conservation Area.

Noted in the Domesday Book as a thriving, well-established settlement of 70 households, it was one of the largest of the time with a church and woodland. During World War II, the village became home to the USAAF 44th bomber group, which was based at its airfield, and the historic site is now home to Shipdham Aero Club and museum.

Today, Shipdham has a thriving community with a GP surgery, Post Office, nursery and primary school, shops and local pub making it a fantastic village for all ages. Along with a clutch of beautiful period properties, Shipdham has grown in recent years with the development of several quality new-build developments which have been sympathetically incorporated within their rural setting.

Less than 6 miles away is the classic country market town of Dereham, an architectural haven with plenty of Georgian gems set on generous plots, blended with more recent developments.

A twice weekly market appears on Tuesdays and Fridays, along with a strong cohort of independent and specialist shops and free parking, making the town a fabulous place for an afternoon spent browsing.

With good local schools, a leisure centre and golf course, Dereham and its surrounding villages, such as Shipdham, are fantastic locations to enjoy the best of Norfolk country living.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains electricity, water and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
