Shropham Road, Great Hockham, Thetford, Norfolk, IP24


3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold STC

On the fringe of the charming, historic village of Great Hockham, Halcyon is set within the heart of the Brecks, conveniently located with direct access to the A11, whilst offering an array of outdoor activities and picturesque countryside walks on the doorstep. The renowned Pingo Trail is an extraordinary and fascinating walking route around Mid Norfolk.

In a plot of 0.36 acre (STMS), Halcyon is close to the village centre, just a stone's throw from a thriving local pub, The Eagle, and enjoys the community spirit which has developed here in recent years.

A set of wooden five bar gates open onto a generous shingled driveway with high fencing and mature shrubs along the front boundary, providing both parking space and privacy.

Once inside the property, from the central hallway the eye is drawn toward the living space, and stone tiled flooring guides you into the sophisticated and impressive kitchen/dining room a real feature of the home. The space feels extremely light with benefit of a vaulted ceiling, exposing the trusses and fitted with three skylights, flooding light into the property. The elegant wall and base storage units are complemented by granite worksurfaces and stylish splashbacks, contrasting beautifully with the charm of the Belfast sink and electric range oven. A glazed door leads into a separate utility room, with further storage space and a door leading out onto the rear garden.

The sitting room is positioned next door, and the two rooms connect beautifully. Bi-fold doors lead out onto an Indian sandstone patio, ideal for hosting parties through the warmer months, whilst the modern, wood burning stove provides style and cosiness in cooler weather.

The accommodation having been extended, the bedrooms are all well proportioned, and there's generous storage built in to the first and second bedrooms. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious and includes a generous en-suite shower room and double glazed door to the garden, whilst the impressive family bathroom houses a four-piece suite and services bedrooms two and three. Bedroom three currently serves as the owners office providing a versatile space if required.

The rear garden is a great place to retreat after a hard day's work, with a superb gazebo along with other areas to sit and enjoy the world go by. The entire plot is fully enclosed by a mixture of panelled fencing and established hedging. Within the rear garden the outbuildings extend to approximately 715 sq. ft., including a 23ft games room which could become an office, or perhaps an annexe, subject to the relevant planning permission. The outbuildings also include a great workshop and a charming summer house. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with well stocked flower beds, offering an array of colourful seasonal flowers.

GREAT HOCKHAM A picturesque village, Great Hockham has the village green at its centre. The village currently has a primary school (100 pupils) and a popular pub, The Eagle. There is a church, community hall and playing field on the outskirts of the village and there are also a number of nearby campsites. Within walking distance of the village is Thetford Forest, with its numerous walks and trails (including the Pingo Trail) and the Peddars way forms part of the village's western parish boundary. Hockham is well known for the former Breckland author Christopher Bush (1885-1973), who wrote under both his own name and the pseudonym Michael Home. His Breckland novels give an excellent insight into village life at the turn of the 19th century.

The town has a range of amenities including four schools, a town hall, shops, coffee shops, bars, restaurants, takeaway restaurants and a doctors.
