Property description

Holiday let included. A former Victorian school dating back from the mid nineteenth century standing on the outskirts of the popular village of Lyng. The property has been sympathetically converted to offer spacious, character accommodation, which is currently divided into a three/four bedroom house, and a two bedroom self contained wing, which is let by the current owners to holidaymakers. However, this wing could be incorporated into the main house if desired.
Within the grounds is a two storey detached building which would make ideal office, or open plan studio, and planning permission has also been granted for use as further secondary accommodation if required.
The mature gardens include parking areas, areas of lawn, and numerous mature trees and shrubs, whilst the holiday accommodation has its own, private courtyard garden.
The village of Lyng is a well known mid Norfolk village standing on the River Wensum. It is well served with facilities including church, public house, local shop, primary and nursery schools, garage, riding stables, floodlit multi sports area, bowls and country club including fishing lakes.
The main building is approximately 311m squared (3349ft squared) and the outbuilding is approximately 87m squared (937ft squared). It is also worth noting that fibre optic broadband is available in the village.
