Location Oak Tree House sits in an enviable position on the edge of the village, set back from the country lane with fields to the side and rear. The village is well thought of and has a basic range of amenities including a public house and school. The neighbouring village of Kenninghall just a couple of miles away has wider facilities and the bustling market town of Diss, just 6 miles to the east, has schooling to sixth form, excellent shops, sporting and social facilities, and good transport links with a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in just 90 minutes. A little further afield is Bury St Edmunds (15 miles), Norwich (25 miles) and there are links to the A11 which is now dual carriageway all the way to Newmarket where it joins the A14 corridor giving access to Cambridge within an hour or so. This house combines a quiet, rural setting with good access to facilities.
The Property This is a wonderful family home which sits well within its plot and offers bright and spacious accommodation. The house was built in the 1970's and later extended to one end. In this day and age when fewer but larger rooms are the preference, this house offers a lot and has the added advantage of a large home office area which easily accommodates two large desks without feeling crowded. The living room is dual aspect with the focal point of the fireplace, Double doors lead out to the rear garden. The kitchen is 'L' shaped and has a range of cream Cooke and Lewis units and included an integrated washing machine and dishwasher. The most recent 'addition' has been the enclosing of an area between the kitchen and garaging which now offers a delightful garden room with glazed roof.
The first floor provides four bedrooms (3 doubles and a single), two of which have ensuite shower rooms and the main bedroom also has a dressing area. There is a large landing which is used as a sewing area with fitted units and good views down into the garden.
Given the size of grounds there is room to extend should a new owner wish (subject to planning)
Outside The grounds and setting of this house are a real delight. Being set back from the road and quite well hidden by mature trees, the drive sweeps between the front lawns up to the garaging and carport. There is access around either side to the rear garden which is a showcase of mature shrubs, cottage style beds, walkways and further back a wildlife garden with wild flower lays interspersed by cut paths. There are various fruit trees, a pond and a pretty barn which has power and water connected and could potentially be much more (subject again to planning). For the sporty, there is a fenced tennis court.
Overall the property sits in 1.51ac.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Drainage to a private treatment plant. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators.
Directions From Diss, head west on the A1066 and at South Lopham beside the White Horse Inn take the right fork and proceed into the village of North Lopham. Continue almost through the village and then take the left turn onto Harling Road. Oak Tree House is just after the wooded area on the left. What Three Words - Smile, Unwrap, months
