6 Bedroom Chalet For Sale
Down a quiet rural track, passing through a pair of cast iron gates and meandering along a brick-paved driveway we find Thuxton Lodge.
Sitting on a former orchard, in a traditional village with a unique local church and a heritage railway line, this great family home is positioned perfectly. It is in striking distance to Norwich, Dereham and the countless beautiful beaches Norfolk has to offer.
Eyes can sometimes be deceiving and it is not until you step into the large and welcoming hallway that you fully appreciate what this home offers. It is a substantial property, one that you can, however, feel immediately at home in.
All the reception rooms stem from the entrance hall with the study on your left and then, working in a clockwork motion, the sitting room, formal dining room, kitchen and then finally the incredibly useful boot room.
The sitting room is a lovely space to relax in the evening, whether it's to wind down with a book, movie or glass of wine. With its glass sliding door facing a southerly direction, and the room's window too, the sitting room is always filled with natural light. It also offers fantastic views of the garden and has double doors which lead seamlessly into the dining room.
The kitchen dining room has its own views too, looking out onto the paved patio area and the garden beyond. A generous kitchen island makes this a lovely space to sit and chat when entertaining, or for children to do their homework on whilst dinner is being prepared. From here there's a very useful utility room.
To rear of the property we find four double bedrooms, the primary having ample built-in wardrobe space and use of its own private en-sutie. The other three bedrooms share the family bathroom, both of these two bathrooms have been recently refurbished to a wonderful modern standard.
Upstairs there are a further two large double bedrooms and one is currently being used as an extra sitting room for the family.
Outside the property there is a large, paved patio area facing southwest and it is the current vendor's favourite spot in the house. The space is nicely sectioned off from the garden by raised lawned area that wraps around the rest of the house and that is a real blank canvas for those that want to create a country style garden - or a great place for the children to run around and burn off some energy. The property also benefits from a double garage and ample parking for several cars.
