4 bedroom property – Harling Road, Garboldisham, NorfolkOffers Over £600,000
Property DetailsLocation Location is often quoted as the single most important factor in deciding which property to buy and this house can only be described as being in a superb position. It is set in a very pretty rural spot with the nearest other house being around 770m (nearly half a mile away). There are views across a gently rolling landscape of farmland and onto the vast areas of woodland which is a particular delight in autumn with the beech trees turning. Whilst having this rural idyll, the house is not far from amenities with the very well served village of East Harling just a mile or so away and providing an excellent range of daily facilities, the bustling market town of Diss is 10 miles and has a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes, Bury St Edmunds is 15 miles away, and Norwich just 25 miles. The route to Newmarket, the A14 corridor and Cambridge is now much improved with dual carriageway making it very accessible from this area. Overall the house combines a wonderful rural setting with easy access to a wide range of facilities.
The Property Langsky started its life as a gamekeeper's cottage and is believed to have been part of the Garboldisham Estate. It is thought to have been built in the mid 19th century and has been extended since to provide a comfortable family home for the present owners for the last 45 years or so. During this time the property has been well cared for but it is fair to say that there is room for further improvement and given the extent of the plot there is certainly room to extend (subject to obtaining the usual planning permissions). The rooms are all spacious and bright with quite generous ceiling heights throughout.
Outside This house is set well back from the road with a long private drive leading past its woodland strip on one side and the fenced grass paddock on the other. Near to the house are various outbuildings including a Nissen hut 16'9 x 16' approx used as garaging with double wooden doors, concrete floor and power, and a traditional range of brick and tiled outhouses which would have been the former wash house (still retains its fireplace and wash copper) and two stores. The garden surrounding the house is grassed with various bushes and trees making this an easy area to look after. Overall the property is set within 2.705ha (6.68ac).
Agents Note There is a right of access for the neighbouring farmer over the drive albeit this has not been used for many years.
Services Mains electricity is connected to the property. Private bore hole water supply. Private drainage. Solid fuel boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
