This fabulous, Victorian detached house has been sympathetically restored by the current owners, undertaking a series of renovations and improvements throughout and creating a space for their family to enjoy. The property stands proud within a 0.3-acre (STMS) plot with generous front and rear gardens.

Approached from Norwich Road, offering walkable access to the towns amenities, this is a perfect place to raise a family with everything conveniently on your doorstep, yet within walking distance to rural/countryside walks.

The total accommodation extends to approximately 2,467 sq. ft and heading inside into a central hallway, an original staircase rises to the first floor and doors guide you into the living space.

The sitting room is fitted with a large bay window to the front aspect and an original fireplace which houses an open fire, ideal for those late winter nights and spending time with the family.

Leading into the dining room, which is a similar size to the sitting room, it enjoys much of same features, including an open fireplace with stone surround and a low bay to the front aspect. Furthermore, there is space for a generous table ideal for entertaining and hosting dinner parties.

The impressive kitchen is a real feature of the home, the owners have upgraded all of the fixtures which have been carried through into the large pantry and into the utility/shower room. Striking base storage units have been installed on all sides of the kitchen, complemented by a stainless-steel range oven and impressive floor tiling. Units have been carried through into the pantry including a larder and wall mounted storage. The utility/shower room has the best of both worlds, there's a sink and plumbing for a washing machine with quality fixtures including a double shower.

The rear of the property has been extended from its former size and grants access to both remaining reception rooms. The owners have created a generous 19ft. 6 games room, which could be used for several different uses, including the opportunity to create an annexe if a buyer needed multi-generational living and is currently an additional snug. Continuing along the rear hallway there is an office/gym space perfect if a buyer requires to work from home but needs the privacy.

The first floor grants access to all four bedrooms, along with the impressive family bathroom. The principal bedroom looks out onto the front aspect and is finished to a high standard with modern panelling and built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two is of a similar size and the two remaining bedrooms overlook the rear gardens.

The outside space includes a generous driveway to the front, accessed through a set of five bar wooden gates and space for the entire family with ample parking. There are lawned gardens to either side with established shrubs and plants and a mixture of hedging and panel fenced boundaries. The rear garden has been improved by the owners, creating space for both the children and adults and there is a private raised patio behind the double garage/workshop ideal for enjoying breakfast alfresco or inviting friends and family for BBQ's throughout the summer.

Similar to the front, there are maintained hedged and fenced boundaries enclosing the lawned gardens which extend around the sides, enclosed by fencing from the front but could easily allow vehicle access to the double garage if required.

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.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas central heating (newly fitted combi boiler).
