Detached house – Nr Old Buckenham

Guide Price £695,000

Property Details

Location When buying a house the location has got to be one of the key factors and the Long Thatch offers plenty to be interested in. It sits within the Parish of Banham but physically it is much more associated with Old Buckenham. To the front and side of the property are views across fields giving the feeling of rural splendour but there are other properties nearby avoiding the sense of isolation. The centre of Old Buckenham is a brisk walk or short drive away and is a very active community village supporting two pubs, village stores, fine church and various other small businesses as well as having a secondary school.

The towns of Attleborough, Wymondham and Diss are within easy reach all of which have train stations, enabling access to Norwich, Cambridge, London Liverpool Street and London Kings Cross.

Simple access onto the A11, which is dual carriageway all the way to the A14, makes Newmarket and Cambridge quite accessible by car, Norwich is an easy 30 minute commute.

Overall, this elegant house provides a stylish property in a quiet location with excellent access to facilities.

The Property Despite being an interesting period house probably dating from the 16th century, this house is not Listed and therefore offers greater scope for alterations should a new owner wish. The current owners have done much to create a fine home which offers comfortable and stylish living space along with a self contained annex and a room that has been used as part of their business which would now be a perfect home office area or could be an additional bedroom if preferred. The character of the house is very much on display with many original features such as the open fireplaces and exposed timbers to the wall and ceilings. The annex has its own front door and has the potential to generate an income for a new owner as perhaps a holiday let or B&B.

Overall this house offers style with a great deal of flexibility of living space.

Outside Set in grounds of 0.28ac, this property has beautiful 'pockets' of garden centred around the ornamental pond. These areas include a productive vegetable garden, and the latest addition of an outdoor kitchen with pizza oven which is set beside the patio area and is a hub for summer (and winter) entertaining. To the front of the house, the drive provides plenty of parking space and leads up to the double garage

Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Electric heating. Solar Panels
