A delightful period house, with up to 50 acres, set within beautiful gardens and grounds

The Thatched Cottage is a Grade II Listed detached two-bedroom cottage formerly with Listed Building Consent to extend. The property is light and airy and finished to a good standard, offering well-proportioned accommodation with two double bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. Of particular note is the charming living room which overlooks the rear garden and has retained period features including exposed beams and inglenook fireplace.

THE POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY The existing owners gained planning permission and Listed Building Consent to extend the Thatched Cottage which would have created a larger wonderful family home. The planning permission and consent has subsequently lapsed but a prospective purchaser could re-apply.

The lapsed planning permission offered the opportunity to add a substantial two storey rear extension which would have significantly increased the size of the property and double the current accommodation to four spacious bedrooms, whilst also improving the reception room and kitchen space.

The property offers prospective purchasers the opportunity (subject to the necessary planning consents) to create a spectacular family home in a highly desirable north Norfolk location, with associated outbuildings and land extending to just over 50 acres, although further land and farm buildings may be available by separate negotiation. Of particular note will be the open plan kitchen and dining room which will look out over the rear gardens and improve the living and entertaining space.

This property has 50 acres of land.

Outside

The property is accessed via a private driveway with parking for several vehicles. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with shrub and hedge borders and has an extensive patio seating area.

The Thatched Cottage sits in its own well maintained gardens but also includes just over 50 acres of land which offer a commercial opportunity along with the house. The land is currently pasture and arable and would be suitable for equestrian use. Further to this, there may be more land and agricultural buildings available for sale by separate negotiation. The land is mostly classified as Grade 2 and also includes some ponds and woodland and would make a fantastic wildlife haven.

Situation

Thatched Cottage is situated in Kerdiston about 2 miles from the Georgian market town of Reepham which has excellent shopping, schooling and leisure facilities. The City of Norwich is 15 miles to the south east which provides comprehensive facilities and a half hourly train service to London Liverpool Street (100 minutes).

Norwich Airport (13 miles) provides links with Amsterdam Schiphol and onward international flights. There are good educational facilities in both state and private sectors within the area including Reepham High School. Private education is available at Gresham's School, Holt which takes both boys and girls from preparatory to sixth form and Taverham Hall Preparatory School.

The North Norfolk Coast is 12 miles to the north, most of which is classified as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a heritage coastline offering numerous recreational pursuits including bird watching, sandy beaches and excellent sailing facilities at Holkham, Blakeney and Morston.

Directions

From Norwich head north-west through Hellesdon on the Reepham Road. On the north side of Reepham, head north on the Kerdiston Road and take the right hand turn at the triangle in the road. Continue for a short distance and the entrance to Thatched Cottage can be found on the right hand side.
