4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
A well-presented detached five bedroom family home fronting on to Quebec Road, arguably one of the most popular roads on the fringe of the market town of Dereham.
The property has grown with the family over the last 36 years and it is evident as soon as you step through the door it has been a loved home during this time.
Walking through the front door you step into a large and welcoming entrance hall. Stemming from it is the breakfast room which connects to the kitchen, a dining room, a large living room and a downstairs shower room.
The kitchen is of good proportions with a large picture window looking out on to the private rear garden, with the breakfast room so close by it has been a very useful space - especially when the children were growing up and there were countless hours of homework to complete whilst dinner was cooking.
Off the kitchen is the ever-important utility/boot room, which has separate access out into the garden.
The open plan dining room/living room is 'L' shaped and has two sliding glass doors, one which gives further access to the garden and the other to the large garden room. Like its name suggests, this room gifts great vistas onto the garden and truly brings the outside in.
From this space is the final room of the ground floor, which was originally built as a bedroom with separate WC. However, it is a hugely versatile room and could be used as a study for those working from home or a children's playroom, an area which could be closed off and any toys or mess hidden away.
Upstairs and off from the large landing are four further double bedrooms. The principal suite benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and private en-suite. The other three rooms share a family bathroom and a separate WC.
Heading outside and to the rear is a large garden, mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedges which surround the property. There is a large double garage at the back of the garden and parking for several cars accessed off De-Narde Road.
To the front of the property is an equally large garden that too is mainly laid to lawn with a nice mixture of mature trees and hedges.
The large rooms and surprisingly up-to-date layout, considering it was built in the 1970s, is perfectly positioned within the historic market town of Dereham and will no doubt be a wonderful home for the next custodian.
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.
Heritage buffs are spoilt for choice with living museum Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse just a few minutes out of town, or step back in time and adventure at Castle Acre Castle and Priory, an 11th century monastic site, and National Trust property Oxburgh Hall, which is half an hour's drive away.
When you've worked up an appetite exploring, Dereham is home to one of Norfolk's best pubs, The Brisley Bell, which has a first-rate menu and a warm welcome which has earned it multiple awards, or spice things up with a tasty dish at Spice Fusion curry house. Otherwise head to The Old Dairy and stock up on its artisan bread and produce for an easy dine-in experience.
With good local schools, a leisure centre and golf course, Dereham and its surrounding villages are a fantastic spot to enjoy the best of Norfolk country living with easy commuting access to Norwich and the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea, just 22 miles away. Come discover a Norfolk gem.
