5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
From the minute you arrive at the sliding electric entrance gate, you cannot help but be impressed by Cedar House. It has such an imposing and commanding appearance, it just makes you want to see more. This is exactly how the current owners felt when they arrived at the house for the first time. They had been looking for some time and had exacting standards, yet they did not have to walk through the front door to know this was the right house for them. Of course, when they did walk in it just got better and better. What is wonderful about Cedar House is that not only does it offer stunning space, it is very homely, which is often very difficult to achieve with contemporary architecture.
The full-height entrance hall has a real sense of drama, flooded with light to both sides with a walk-way above linking both sides of the first floor. There is a reception room to the front, which the vendors have used as a playroom but could be used for a variety of purposes. The vast majority of the ground floor is open plan. The current owners do a lot of entertaining, and the house is perfect for this.
The reception space seamlessly flows into the outstanding kitchen, which is bespoke and fitted with a comprehensive range of hand-built wooden units. The kitchen is one of the owner's favourite places with large, glazed panels to the front overlooking the pond. The side of the kitchen opens with full-height glazed pocket doors, as does the reception space fusing the outside with the inside. Off the hall there is a stunning vaulted swimming pool, which recently hosted the owners' daughter's birthday party and facilitated so much fun and enjoyment.
The principal suite is very strong with a large, vaulted bedroom, dressing room and substantial en-suite. It forms one entire wing. There are three further suites on the first floor and a large split-level second floor room, which could be used for a variety of purposes.
The driveway offers superb space for many cars together, with a garage and two carports. To the rear of the garage is an outstanding self-contained one-bedroom annexe, which could be perfect for multi-generational living, guests or even Airbnb. There is also a detached office/studio.
The house sits so well within its excellent plot, with willow weaved panels to the front and far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside to both the front and rear. The vendors have loved the feeling of living in the country, whilst benefiting from the superb convenience of being close to Norwich with all its amenities.
