6 bedroom property – Great Hockham, Norfolk


Property Details

Location The house is pleasantly situated on the edge of the unspoilt village of Great Hockham, a conservation village with a 'picture postcard' green, public house and primary school. Various walks to both Thetford Forest and the Peddars Way, which spans from Thetford to the north Norfolk coast, are within close reach. There are several market towns nearby, with Watton (7 miles), Attleborough (7 miles) and Thetford (9 miles), which all provide a selection of local and national retailers, shops and businesses. Thetford in particular offers good transport links, with a mainline railway station providing easy access into both Norwich and Cambridge and onward to London. The dualled A11 also provides fast access both in and out of Norfolk and connects to the A14 to Cambridge and M11 into London.

The Property Beechwood House is a most attractive village property of great charm and character and is believed to date in part from the late 16th century. It has a painted, rendered front elevation to the village street and is faced in local flint to the rear, overlooking the south-facing garden with outstanding views beyond to the surrounding countryside and parkland adjoining Hockham Hall. A fine Amdega conservatory blends with the style of the house. The kitchen is of high quality with travertine flooring, solid units, oak/ granite worktops and Aga. Period features continue through the property, with fine fireplaces, attractive windows and exposed beams, with the style of decoration befitting each room. Two staircases lead to the first floor, with the original wooden staircase off the hallway displaying the heritage of this wonderful home. Overall Beechwood House has four bedrooms along with three bathroom facilities, (including the stylish and recently remodelled ground floor shower room). Uniquely, the house is adjoined with an internal access into Old School Cottage. Its two double bedrooms and two reception rooms offer a great opportunity for a holiday let investment or further accommodation for additional family members. The rooms are of good proportions, with much character including exposed brickwork. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and the rear entrance door of the cottage opens onto its own private garden.

Outside Beechwood House is privately screened by laurel hedging and a brick and flint wall to the front and gravel driveway to the side, with ample parking and detached double garage. The attractive landscaped gardens extend to approximately 0.75 acre with lawns, well stocked mature beds and borders, and a variety of shrubs, mature trees and topiary of yew, holly and box, under-planted with a mass of spring bulbs, which ensure year-round appeal. A secret courtyard is tucked away between the house and cottage. There is also a vegetable/ herb garden, leading to a woodland area, under-planted with snowdrops and cyclamen. Two large brick and flint outbuildings, (28' x 9' and 41' x 11'), provide studio/ workshop/ storage space, with power and light, skylights and pamment floors.

Services Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. An oil fired central heating boiler provides domestic hot water and heating to the property.
