3 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
Constructed by the locally renowned builders Hopkins Homes, this detached family house enjoys a great position at the beginning of its development.
Located within the historic market town of Watton, here offers the convenience of amenities within walking distance and the essence of space. Furthermore, there is an existing NHBC with the property, providing peace and mind to any prospective purchaser and is to be sold with no onward chain.
The development is located on the edge of the town, positioned next to the Watton Golf Club, ideal for keen golfers and the security the development won't be extended further.
Approached from Aircraft Drive, the property is located on the left-hand side with great curb appeal, benefiting from off-road parking via a shingle driveway and leads to a single garage.
A central pathway guides you into the front door, where upon entering the home, you are greeted by a light and airy hallway with stairs rising to the first floor.
The living spaces have been split into two core areas; the triple aspect sitting room - which runs the full length of the property - and the kitchen/dining room with an open utility area. The sitting room is fitted with patio doors which open out onto the rear garden while the kitchen area also extends the length of the property with space for a dining table, ideal for entering guests of keeping an eye on the kids doing their homework.
The kitchen has a range of fitted wall and base storage units along with plenty of space for appliances. Furthermore, there is a built-in electric oven with a gas hob and overhead stainless-steel extractor. In addition to these rooms there is a downstairs cloakroom with two built-in storage cupboards.
Leading upstairs grants access to all three bedrooms which offers two good sized doubles and a single third bedroom - which could make an ideal office space for those wishing to work from home. The main bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room. The remaining two bedrooms share the family bathroom.
The external space offers a front garden with an array of different shrubs providing some colour. The rear garden is a blank canvas for any prospective buyer to make it their own. Currently it is laid to lawn with only a paved pathway leading to the pedestrian side door into the garage and a gate taking you back around to the side driveway.
WATTON Providing plenty of country homes with room to grow, plus an ample share of equestrian properties, the popular market town of Watton has a strong rural community, which comes together each year for the annual Wayland Show, one of England's oldest agricultural shows.
Located in the heart of Breckland, the town is well-served by primary, junior and secondary schools, a GP clinic, dental surgery and chemist, along with a supermarket, Post Office and sports centre.
Just outside the town, Loch Neaton is believed to be England's only loch. In 1875, Scottish railway workers excavated land to establish a new railway from Thetford to Watton and the site filled with water from the River Wissey, forming a lake. A group of Victorian entrepreneurs saw the potential to develop this picturesque spot into a pleasure garden with woodland trails, boats, a bandstand and even winter ice skating. Although the attractions are long gone, the loch is still a stunning location to enjoy a relaxing walk or a day spent fishing the waters.
Local legend has it that nearby Wayland Wood is the site of the children's tale, Babes in the Wood, and the beauty of the area makes it an unmissable place to explore. Enjoy the cycle trails at nearby Thetford Forest or book a game at Richmond Park Golf Course, an 18-hole course with driving range set in 100 acres of parkland.
Well-exercised, there are several good pubs serving real ales and good grub to recharge your energy - try The Willow House, The Waggon & Horses in nearby Griston or The Old Bell at Saham Toney, north of Watton.
With its many historic and stunning natural landmarks, plus a superb range of properties to discover, Watton is a jewel in Norfolk's rural crown.
