Well Hill, Yaxham, Dereham, Norfolk, NR19

££875,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

The original house was built approximately 240 years ago and resides on the street Well Hill, which gained its name from the well at the front of Clinton House.

When the current owners bought the property, it was in, arguably, a rather sad and unloved condition. They immediately set about a complete programme of refurbishment and extensive improvements. The level of care and attention of the work carried out is first noticed as soon as you step through the front door and into the large welcoming hallway, from which all the primary reception rooms are accessed.

The hallway is part of what would have been the original house and this is evidenced by the large wooden beam that is the feature of this room.

The kitchen and dining room has been brought back to life by the owners, who have created a large open plan and practical living space.

The dining room includes an oak and exposed brick fireplace with an inviting log burner, bay window and french doors opening onto the expansive garden. This room opens into the bespoke handmade kitchen, with integrated appliances, and quartz work surfaces. A small circular wooden worktop creates an additional seating area, making it a space guests naturally gravitate towards.

The cosy living room is in the old part of the house and it is the perfect place to relax during a cold winter's night; the wooden beams, large inglenook fire place and bay window add to the charm and atmosphere of this lovely room.

The garden room with its vaulted ceiling and large windows provides commanding views on to the garden.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms for family members or guests to share.

If the living room is where you spend your winter, then the garden is the place to be in summer. With large trees, mature garden beds, water features, summerhouse and a large shed there is something here for everyone. The current vendors love to sit by the water feature - at the top of the garden - and listen to the gentle trickle of water and birdsong that fills the air.

Clinton Cottage, situated within the grounds of the property, has been used by our clients as a successful holiday rental business, figures available on request.

This large one-bedroome cottage, which was originally a chicken shed has also undergone extensive refurbishment and is now graded as a four-star holiday retreat with many returning guests.

There is potential to extend to create a second bedroom, providing additional flexibility and rental income, if required.

This is a property with history, charm and an opportunity not to be missed.

YAXHAM The village of Yaxham is situated approximately three miles south of the market town of Dereham and about two miles from the nearest Tesco supermarket.

The Village provides local amenities including the highly rated Ranis Indian Restaurant, a vibrant village hall offering multiple activities across the week for all age groups, together with a pro-active, community focussed Parish Council.

Nearby Mattishall offers Doctor's Surgery, Chemist, together with local shops and eateries. The village also benefits from a regular bus service to Norwich City centre via the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. Further amenities can be found at the nearby town of Dereham.

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.

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