5 bedroom detached house – Quidenham, NorfolkGuide Price £650,000
Property DetailsLocation Quidenham is a delightful village with a green at its centre and a cluster of houses dotted around being mainly period properties. It was an 'Estate' village as part of the Earl of Albermarle's property and retains that feeling of being largely untouched. The surrounding area is quite rural with rolling fields and woodland but at the same time the village is very well placed for amenities. The nearby village of Kenninghall has a very well run local shop and post office as well as public houses and schooling. There is easy access to the A11 giving a swift route to Norwich (21 miles), Newmarket (32 miles) and links to the A14 corridor with Cambridge in under an hour. For those looking to commute to London there is a mainline station at Diss on the London Liverpool Street line, or from Attleborough just 4 miles away there is a rail line running to Cambridge with connections to London Kings Cross. This is a property which enjoys a rural location but with easy access to the wider world.
The Property As the name suggests it started its life as a simple carpenter's workshop as part of the estate. It was converted in the 1980's and then later extended to create the property we see today which provides over 2,600ft² of living space and sits very well within its surroundings. It is an interesting house which has been carefully maintained over the years but it is fair to say that the fixtures and fittings are now a little dated in style. This gives the new owner a great opportunity to apply their own stamp on the property and given the size of plot there is plenty of room to extend further (subject to the usual planning consents being obtained).
Outside One of the real delights of The Old Carpenters is its setting within approx.0.668ha (1.65ac) of garden. It is almost hidden from the country lane with a private road leading off through electric gates into a circular driveway in front of the house. To the side is a double garage (5.5m x 5.3m) behind which is a range of stables (12.3m x 3.0m) currently used as stores. There are different areas of garden with part being wooded, part lawned, a productive vegetable and soft fruit area, plus a 'hidden' garden behind well clipped hedging.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Drainage to a private drainage system. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water.
Directions From Diss heading west on the A1066 towards Thetford. In South Lopham, turn right and follow the road through North Lopham and into Kenninghall. At the staggered crossroads go straight over and into Quidenham. Past the church and then turn right. The drive to The Old Carpenters is around 140m on the left. The foot of the drive is shared with the neighbouring property so bear to the right up to the electric gates.
