Property description

Sowerbys are delighted to offer a beautiful contemporary conversion of an Old School house in West Norfolk with a stunning position with rural views, private gardens, stables, ménage and grounds and paddocks approaching 6 acres (subject to survey). The property is a classic late Victorian design, constructed in the 1890s and used as the village school until the 1970s. It incorporates several highly desirable architectural features including Neo-Gothic windows and vaulted ceilings. It has been converted to a very high standard and recently incorporated high quality double glazed sash windows. The property is within the highly desirable Westacre Estate which affords walking, riding and other outdoor leisure opportunities.

First hand inspection of this bespoke property is essential to understand the wonderful living spaces it affords centred around the Old School House building. The main entrance leads into a spacious room used as dining room giving access to the rest of the property, there is also a formal sitting room, study and double height area library area with an original window flooding light into the property. Furthermore there is a side entrance hall, snug with open fire, lounge and stunning kitchen breakfast room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The dining room has a huge open fire with Adams style fire surround, there is also a wood burner in the lounge and a small cosy open fire in the snug.

The approach to the property is wonderful with a gravel drive, lined with ornamental pear trees, leading through the grounds to the house. Here there is access to private gardens, a courtyard, garage and stable block facility. The owner has made full use of a stable yard with four boxes in total plus tack room, feed store and washroom area. The property also includes a competition size dressage arena with a rubber/sand surface. The local riding is excellent being rural and within reach of Peddars Way Roman Road and many bridleways nearby. The outside areas include ample outbuildings, a garage, log store, and outdoor kitchen within a delightfully enclosed outdoor courtyard which is a real suntrap in the summer months. The garden and courtyard are served by an automatic irrigation system. The grounds boast many native trees and fruit trees including apple, plum, walnut, cherry and peach as well as mature ash, birch and over 200 m of beech hedging. The entire perimeter of the property has been enclosed in rabbit- proof fencing and is highly suitable for dog lovers. There is an abundance of perennial flowers throughout the gardens which come to life in the spring as the newly arrived swallows make their nests in the stable block. For the summer months there is a grass tennis court.
