High House is an impressive, spacious and elegant late Victorian country house set in mature gardens and grounds with magnificent trees in an unspoiled and secluded location.

The house is believed to date from the 18th Century but was extensively enlarged, altered and extended to create the existing house in 1881. High House has recently undergone substantial refurbishment and is extremely well presented.

The house sits centrally in its grounds and retains many period features including five marble fireplaces, large sash windows, cornicing and an original Victorian tiled floor in the reception hall.

The house offers substantial and flexible accommodation and of particular note is the large kitchen/breakfast/family room which has been well finished and has granite work surfaces, tiled floors, wood panelling and a four oven Aga.

There are excellent ceiling heights throughout the house, and from the upstairs bedrooms there are far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

This property has 13.15 acres of land.

Outside

Standing to the south of the house a range of fine outbuildings, of red brick elevations under pantile roofs, the majority of which have been refurbished, and have the potential for alternative uses, subject to the necessary consents. They offer tremendous scope for stabling, garaging or conversion to further accommodation.

High House stands in grounds extending to about 13.15 acres and the two principle paddocks are located to the south of the house and are bisected by the gravel driveway. The paddocks are post and rail fenced and there are two further paddocks to the north east and north of the house. Much of the property is bordered by mature traditional Norfolk hedging and there is a spinney to the east of the house providing wood for the wood burners.

High House is approached via a gravel driveway and a five bar gate, ending in a turning and parking area to the front of the house. To the west is a large expansive lawn, and the pond and a number of magnificent mature broad leaf trees including copper beech, horse chestnut and walnut.

There is also a delightful and secluded garden and terrace area to the east of the house, which is accessed from the kitchen/breakfast/family room and provides an ideal space for outside dining and entertaining. The current owners have undergone an extensive amount of work to this area, which features an array of beautiful flowers and shrubs.

High House would also suit an equestrian enthusiast and the buildings could be converted to stabling and hay and feed storage if required. There is a separate access off the main drive to the outbuildings and land behind the house.

Situation

High House occupies a commanding elevated position set amongst gently undulating open countryside with views over its own gardens and surrounding farmland.
