Property Details

Location If you are looking for peace and quiet with no close neighbours, yet accessible to facilities, Tibenham Farm has much to offer. It is set well back from the road within its 7acres with farmland surrounding. For those looking to commute, there is a mainline station just 7 miles to the south at Diss which connects into London Liverpool Street (90 mins). The town has a wide range of local and national shops as well as various sporting and social clubs. Schooling is to sixth form level. The fine city of Norwich is 15 miles or so to the north with all one would hope of a cultural centre plus it has an international airport. The north and east coasts are within an hours drive whilst The Broads is closer still, ideal for those who like to sail. For the walkers and horse riders there is a good network of bridleways and footpaths. Overall this house offers a quiet rural lifestyle with easy access to facilities.

The Main House Tibenham Farm is a late 16th Century timber framed house of exceptional quality. This is seen by the closely spaced wall studs, the generous ceiling height, large mullioned windows, wide brick fireplaces, and elegant chimney stacks. This has been combined with a number of contemporary features which have blended seamlessly giving an overall feel of quality and easy living. This is a great entertaining house with four reception rooms as well as the barn like kitchen which is double height and has a mezzanine sitting area (or perhaps the minstrels gallery?).

The wide staircase has a large window allowing light to flood in and the first floor is certainly not a disappointment as the quality continues throughout with four bedrooms and ancillary rooms. The main bedroom has a very modern ensuite, and stairs leading up to a second floor dressing area. The far end bedroom also has an ensuite but this too is on the second floor. Sanitary ware throughout the house is of high quality.

The Flat This is accessed from the stairs rising from the mezzanine above the kitchen, and has a stylish bathroom and then a single area with a kitchenette and a living/bedroom area. This makes an ideal teenagers suite or perhaps as accommodation for domestic help.

Outside Tibenham Farm is set in over 7acres of well-tended garden and paddock. The long drive leading from the road runs beside the paddock and up to an electrically gated driveway and then into the garden area. There is plenty of parking space and the drive wraps around the back to the outbuildings. The front garden is lawned and set within the moat and has a wooded backdrop. The are various walkways cut through the trees which eventually ends at the back of the house near the barns. Immediately to the rear is a walled garden with lawn, raised areas, and flower beds. This makes a particularly private area and its own microclimate.

The Buildings Behind the house are two principal buildings. A period weatherboarded barn 60' x19'6 with rear lean-to, and a more modern barn 40' x 30'6 which has been used for general storage and stabling in the past.

Agents Note There are two footpaths crossing the property. The agent can provide more detail upon request.
