Property Details

Location Willow Farm is in a superb location offering the best of a rural position yet within easy distance of a wide range of facilities. The immediate area is rural with a mix of woods and farmland and there are no close neighbours, the nearest being over 200m away and only a handful within half a mile. At the same time, it is a very accessible area being just 3 miles from the popular town of Wymondham and 12 miles from the centre of Norwich. Wymondham provides an excellent range of facilities including Wymondham College which is a highly rated state boarding school as well as Wymondham Academy. There is also a main line rail service on the Norwich to Cambridge line with changes for London Kings Cross. This area is the gateway towards the Broads and the coastlines around Norfolk and Suffolk such as Burnham Market and Southwold are around an hour drive. If you are after peace and quiet without being too far from the wider world, Willow Farm is ideal.

The Property Willow Farm is a delightful house which combines many traditional elements with a few contemporary twists. The current owners have created a large family home from its original quite modest core by converting the former outbuildings to large and bright rooms with views into the different areas of garden. The house offers considerable flexibility of living space with both ground and first floor bedrooms, as well as a second kitchen area.

Outside The delight of this property is the extent and style of garden. In all, the house stands in 3.19ac of ground, best described as a mini arboretum which has been lovingly created by the current owners. The vast array of trees and shrubs has wide grassed pathways and wildflower areas making it relatively simple to look after (the current owner spends a couple of hours a week mowing during the season). The wildlife which has been drawn into the grounds includes over 50 species of birds! To the rear, which has a southerly aspect, is a more typical area of garden with lawn and flower beds, and two large ponds with crested newts, dragon and damsel flies. Sitting areas have been created and there is an enclosed courtyard with wild flowers allowed to come through the gravel bed.

For storage, there is a double garage plus integral boiler house and store, lean-to log store, greenhouse, and on the end of the house, a former stable.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators.

Directions From Wymondham, heading out on Silfield Road. Approximately I mile after crossing the A11, turn right onto Wattlefield Road. Willow farm is threequarters of a mile on the left.
