Guide Price £1,150,000

Property Details

Location Set in an elevated position in the Waveney Valley on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk, this fine house is in a quiet rural location away from the daily bustle, and yet it is neither isolated. The adjacent range of converted barns do not overlook the house and the house has a lovely aspect onto its private garden. The market town of Harleston is just 4 miles away and has a great variety of local shops. The larger market town of Diss is a little further afield but still within 7 miles and has a mainline rail station on the London Liverpool Street line with a journey to London taking around 90 minutes. For those who enjoy the coast, the seaside towns of Southwold and Walberswick are only 40 minutes or so by car, and the Broads are a similar distance to the north. This house combines country living with access to the wider world and local facilities.

The Property This finely timbered house is believed to date from the 17th century and has been fully renovated by the current owners who have carefully retained all its charm and character whilst bringing in modern comforts. The wall timbers are particularly fine and close spaced (a sign of quality) and the use of modern oak in the renovation has continued this theme.

Other features are the wide open fireplaces, mullion windows (both covered and uncovered), wide oak plank flooring and good quality fittings thoughout. Another of the delights of this house is the good level of natural light, which combined with the generous ceiling heights gives a feeling of space and grandeur.

Outside The property is set within 14.74 acres of garden and fields. The fields have post and wire fencing and are divided into smaller paddocks with five timber field shelters and the property is currently used as an Alpaca Stud Farm (the land is registered for Single Farm Payments and Entitlements will be transferred) there are additional outbuildings providing useful storage space, and a double garage attached to the house.

The garden is laid mainly to lawn with a large pond to the front, orchard areas and various trees and bushes.

Additional Land A further 5 acres or so of adjoining land has been rented by the vendors and the owner has indicated they are willing to re-let to a new owner (subject to agreement of terms).

Services Mains water, electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
