Property description

A simply stunning cottage, with planning to extend. You will be truly 'wowed' when you view both the interior and exterior of this delightful cottage. Currently offering one double bedroom, planning was previously granted to extend the property and the owner is currently seeking to reinstate this permission. Furnished to a very high standard the property is currently a luxury holiday home and will particularly appeal to those looking for their own weekend getaway. The property has been subject to an extensive restoration, extension and improvement programme.

The ground floor has been sympathetically extended and offers entrance hall, dining hall, sitting room with magnificent fireplace, downstairs cloakroom and a wonderful kitchen/breakfast room overlooking the rear. The first floor has the double bedroom and luxurious bathroom with four piece suite. The outside is equally accommodating with large shingle driveway providing plenty of off street parking, two patio areas, large brick storage shed/workshop, lawned garden and large summer house.

There is a perfect blend of period character and modern specification. Sash windows, exposed beams, restored floorings, fireplace with wood burner, bespoke solid wood kitchen, granite worktops, integral music system, solid wood staircase and travertine tiled bathroom – these are all offered in beautiful condition. You will not be disappointed with this property, set in the heart of one of Norfolk's most sought after villages.

Litcham Litcham is a small village between the market towns of Fakenham and Dereham. It's described in the Doomsday book as 'a market town in the centre of Norfolk' although it's much older than that with Roman roads found nearby. There is a village museum with a Grade II listed underground limekiln, which you can arrange to view. There are walks in the nature reserve on Litcham Common and down the river Nar. The village has a pub, The Old Bull, a butcher, a doctor&146;s surgery and a post office/general store. There are two schools, a primary, and the very much in demand, Litcham High. There is also a 12th century church, All Saints, which was largely rebuilt in the early 15th century. Litcham is ideally positioned for the Norfolk coast with its miles of unspoilt coastline. The city of Norwich is 26 miles away and has a very convenient local airport for intercontinental gateway flights through Schiphol. There are direct rail links from Norwich to London Liverpool Street. King's Lynn, with a direct rail route to London King's Cross-via Cambridge, is 19 miles away.
