4 bedroom detached house – Pristow Green Lane, Tibenham, Norwich

Offers In Excess Of £800,000

Property Details

Location Set on the outskirts of the small village of Tibenham where there is a public house and an active village hall, the nearby villages of New Buckenham and Bunwell have local shops. A little further afield are the market towns of Wymondham (10 miles) and Diss (7 miles) both of which are well served, and with Diss providing a commuter rail service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes. For greater cultural variety, the fine city of Norwich is just 17 miles to the north and has an international airport.

The Property Sycamore Farm is perfect for those looking to get away from the rat race. Tom and Barbara Good, eat your heart out. (Two characters from the well-known BBC tv series 'The Good Life', for those who are old enough to remember it!). A registered smallholding, it specialises in award winning rare breed foods (Samphire) and will appeal to those looking to run a similar business or alternatively develop the land ie for equestrian use or perhaps a glamping site, subject to the necessary planning consents. The Grade II Listed farmhouse is unspoilt, offering a wealth of period features and character, whereas the Victorian red brick outbuildings are not Listed and have scope for conversion into holiday accommodation, a granny annexe or as a separate dwelling.

The accommodation is surprisingly light and airy for a house of its age, thanks to its north east/south west aspect. The practical rear lobby has space for coats and boots and has a cloakroom and an useful pantry. The lobby also serves as a utility area and leading off is a laundry room. The farmhouse kitchen is simplicity at its best. Contemporar units with wooden work surfaces and a practical double sink flank one wall, a farmhouse table takes centre-stage and an oil-fired Aga is set into the inglenook fireplace. A sofa to one side beckons! There is an entrance hall to the north-east aspect which gives access to a cosy but spacious sitting room with large inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove inset. Leading off is a study/dining room. From the entrance hall a winding staircase leads up to the first floor accommodation which comprises three double bedrooms and a bathroom (the bath having a shower over) and further flight of stairs lead to a delightful attic bedroom which takes in views over the paddocks to the rear. There are superb views from all rooms over the surrounding grounds and countryside beyond.

Outside The property is accessed from the road via two driveways, one is via a farm gate up a gravelled drive to the front of the house and the other gives access to the barn, stores, timber framed garage (3m x 5.7m) and a further garage which has been converted into a commercial kitchen with power and water connected. The owners have purchased additional land over the past 20 years and the smallholding now comprises some 7 acres (STS) of stock-proofed paddocks with double-planted indigenous hedging and copses to encourage a diversity of wildlife.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Oil-fired central heating providing heat to radiators and hot water. Private drainage (septic tank).

Directions From Diss head north out of the town along Heywood Road and continue straight on the right hand bend into The Heywood. Continue on this road until you reach a staggered crossroads. Continue straight over and head into the village of Tibenham and Sycamore Farm will be found immediately on the right hand side.
