4 Bedroom Farm House For Sale

Rural life epitomised within a classic period farmhouse, yet balanced perfectly with easy access to local market towns, the city of Norwich, and north Norfolk's heritage coastline.

'Low Farm' is more than just a substantial period property, it's a much-adored family home, which has been lovingly created and evolved over 45 years of cherished ownership.

At the heart of this very special residence is a traditional farmhouse dating from the mid-19th century, showcasing mellow red brick elevations set under a classic pantile roof. At every glance the property pays homage to Norfolk's much adored architectural vernacular.

Coming to the market for the first time in nearly half a century, this beguiling family residence sees the perfect marriage of a traditional farmhouse and associated barns and outbuildings. The subtle and seamless union of these charming buildings has created a magical home, which offers so much in terms of living space, entertaining areas and versatile accommodation that can be easily adapted to suit a variety of needs and desires.

Spanning over 6,000 sq. ft. the accommodation and ancillary space briefly comprises a classic central hall with elegant staircase rising to a galleried landing. Either side of the hall two principal receptions provide a sitting room filled with charm, and an informal snug. On the rear elevation a 35' kitchen/breakfast room creates a social hub for gathering and connects to a spacious sun terrace.

Off the kitchen a formal dining room flows through to a delightful garden room, with direct access onto a sunken courtyard garden. On the southwest elevation what was once a large barn now provides a breath-taking drawing room. This spectacular space retains all of the theatre of a barn with triple-height vaulted and beamed ceiling and large openings on two sides, which connect with the outside space. The room also features a versatile mezzanine area currently used as a study.

Further ground floor accommodation includes a shower room with WC, a spacious utility/boot room, two highly versatile stores/workshops and further WC.

The first floor accommodation retains all of the charm and tradition of a classic farmhouse, with four individual bedrooms set off a delightful galleried landing. The principal bedroom features bespoke fitted wardrobes and wonderful southerly views over the grounds and the adjoining countryside. A generous family bathroom serves each of the bedrooms with a bath and separate shower.

The ancillary buildings further enhance the main residence and come together to provide highly versatile space and practical areas necessary for a country home.

Set around a pretty, sheltered courtyard a traditional single storey barn has been expertly converted into a self-contained guest barn. This charming building features an open plan sitting/dining room, fitted kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom. A small garden area and courtyard is dedicated to the barn.

Further outbuildings include a modern timber framed barn, stores and stabling, which extends to over 900 sq. ft. and provides highly adaptable space. Various single storey barn buildings have been converted into garaging, open log stores and garden machinery stores.

Low Farm is set in glorious, private grounds of approximately 1.3 acres (STMS), which create an enchanting and captivating environment set alongside rolling open countryside.

The present owners have lovingly crafted wonderful gardens from the land during their long ownership. Every part of the gardens and land has a purpose both in a practical and aesthetic sense, which envelopes the house on every side.

Notable highlights of the grounds include a glorious front meadow, which creates a magical vista for the property to enjoy, and a walled and gated front courtyard for formal arrival.

A rear, gated entrance opens onto an expansive hard-standing, ideal for daily use, and connects to the guest barn. Further extensive lawns are peppered with specimen trees and are enclosed by established hedgerows flanked by open fields.

Small pockets of the grounds have been set aside for green fingered pursuits with ornamental areas, pathways and delightful vistas. Fruit cages, vegetable plots and practical storage solutions champion the good life.

A more recent addition to the grounds is a majestic sunken garden and terrace, set off the rear elevation of the house. This ingenious space has been created from what was once an outdoor swimming pool. It now features multi-level terracing that is beautifully dressed with soft landscaping. A spacious, open-fronted barn set to one side of the sunken garden provides the ideal outside dining/entertaining space for family and friends to gather.

WOOD DALLING With St Andrews church in its centre, dating back to the 13th century, the village of Wood Dalling is a picturesque, rural village in the heart of Norfolk.

Nestled discreetly on a quiet country lane, 'Low Farm' enjoys an idyllic and private environment surrounded by glorious open countryside.
