5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
An unlisted Georgian property is surely a rare find. Situated in a conservation area in the heart of the Norfolk village of Methwold, providing some superb views of the village church, this five-bedroom house with ample outbuildings has been a family home for many years and owned by the same custodians for the past 60 years.
The Red House stands out for all the right reasons. A fine example of a Georgian property, providing an abundance of space and a plethora of potential.
With over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space, this property offers great versatility. The kitchen/breakfast room boasts an oil fired aga and is perhaps the hub of this family home, offering easy access to the utility room and the garden, it's the ideal space to spend the majority of the day. Whilst for special occasions, the formal dining room is perfect for hosting and entertaining friends and family.
As the day comes to a close, the snug and sitting room provide a welcoming retreat to allow you to unwind. The dual aspect sash windows and high ceilings create a sense of space, whilst the open fireplaces add a comfortable ambience.
Another aspect that demonstrates the wealth of this building are the servant's stairs, which now provide easy access to what could be a private guest wing, or for families with teenage children.
If you are looking for a home to further improve, the variety of outbuildings could be exactly what you need. Whether you are looking to create space for multi-generational living, or perhaps start up an Airbnb for an additional income stream (subject to the relevant planning permission) the potential of this property is huge.
The outside space is a stand out feature, one of favoured elements of the property for our client. The walled garden adds character to the home and provides additional privacy. Laid to lawn, the maintenance is rather minimal.
The Red House is indeed a rare find, taking centre stage within a picturesque and popular village, it offers huge potential for someone to make this their forever family home.
METHWOLD A civil parish in the English county of Norfolk, on the edge of the Norfolk Fens and Breckland.

Approximately 20 miles away, perched on the banks of the River Ouse, King's Lynn has been a centre of trade and industry since the Middle Ages, and its rich history is reflected in the many beautiful buildings which still line the historic quarter.
King Street, which runs from Tuesday Market Place to the Custom House, was once known as 'Stockfish Row' for the number of fish merchants that lived ther. With a listed building every 26ft, Sir John Betjeman described it as one of the finest walks in England.
With Cambridge, Peterborough and Norwich all within an hour's drive and a direct rail line into London King's Cross arriving in the capital in just 1 hour 40 minutes, King's Lynn continues to attract a growing number of professionals seeking an easy commuter route. It's easy to see the appeal of this central location with a clutch of high street retailers and independent restaurants in the town's Vancouver Centre. The Majestic Cinema and King's Lynn Alive Corn Exchange are the place to catch a film or show, or check out what's on at St George's Guildhall, the UK's largest surviving medieval guildhall, today a vibrant arts centre.
