Situation & Location This charming period semi detached house is believed to date back to the seventeenth century and occupies a central location at the very hub of this pretty sought after Breckland conservation village. Overlooking the village green, the property is situated opposite The Crown Hotel and Public House as well as being conveniently placed for the villages' amenities including village stores, newsagents, butchers and hairdresser to name a few.
The property which is predominantly of chalk lump construction under a pantiled roof has changed and evolved over the years and was apparently a Saddlery right upto the 1940's. In more recent years it has been further updated and modernised, although its period charm and character have been sympathetically retained. This can be seen from many of it's features including exposed beams and joists and the delightful Inglenook fireplace with Bressemer beam.
The accommodation offers ample living space to the ground floor with a useful ground floor bathroom and separate w.C as well as a first floor shower room. The three bedrooms are of a good size, although the third bedroom is accessible off bedroom 2.
The gardens are a particular feature of this house, being larger than average and well established. They are particularly appealing because of the useful vehicular access onto the rear courtyard and this is compounded by the very large timber and pantiled barn which apart from offering excellent storage offer purchasers a wonderful workshop to facilitate a hobby or store machinery. Alternatively, the building may lend itself to conversion to provide a holiday let or annexe. Such changes however would require local authority approval.
The sale of this property offers purchasers a unique opportunity to acquire an individual home in a traditional and much desired Norfolk village and would be well suited to those not just seeking a home but aspiring to be part of day to day village life.
