Grove Farm is a charming small farm with a modern individually designed house of rendered elevations under a tiled roof. The house has been finished to a high specification and is fully double glazed. It has the benefit of underfloor heating via an air source heat pump for the ground floor and the principal bedroom suite also has air conditioning. The first floor is heated via Jaga energy efficient radiators. The house is in a secluded and private location set back down a long drive and has some particularly fine rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor, granite work surfaces and built-in appliances along with bi-fold doors to the east and north and light to three aspects, there is also feature lighting and a built-in Sonos sound system throughout the house. Adjacent to the kitchen is the garden room with bi-fold doors and access to a rear terrace and in turn adjacent to this is a substantial sitting/reception room which has a wood burning stove and a fine brick feature fireplace. The ground floor accommodation is flexible and upstairs there are four bedrooms including a superb principal bedroom suite which is air conditioned and includes a high spec bathroom featuring a bath with waterproof TV, underfloor heating, large walk-in shower and double basin. There is also an exceptional dressing room with bespoke built-in wardrobes and a centre island. From the bedrooms there are fine views over the garden and land.
Immediately surrounding the house there are a number of terraces with good access from the kitchen ideal for outside dining. The rear terrace has two built-in waterproof speakers.
This property has 8.5 acres of land.
Grove Farm is accessed via a long, straight, tree lined drive ending in a parking and turning area. This also gives access to the substantial and extensive outbuildings and barns. The parking area is tarmac and there a number of places for turning and storing of larger vehicles, such as horse boxes or trailers. There is a heated double garage with an impressive high specification office on the first floor which also has heating and air conditioning. The garage/office has a wc/shower room and therefore this has potential for use as an annexe subject to the necessary consents. Adjacent to the garage is a large barn which has two spaces measuring 50ft x 20ft and 50ft x 50ft. These would be ideal for use as a private workshop or storage of cars, boats or as use as a small business subject to the necessary consents. To the west of the house is another large barn measuring 90ft x 30ft which is insulated, very well lit and has a heating system. This could provide high quality car storage or could be used for equestrian use or possibly a business subject to the necessary consents.
The gardens surround the house and include an ornamental pond with a fountain and bridge a forest area. This is a haven for wildlife and there are also a greenhouse, garden stores, areas laid to lawn interspersed with a mixture of broadleaf and coniferous trees, delightful flower beds and shrub borders in what is an extremely private and secluded garden.
Either side of the driveway are paddocks, some of which are bordered by traditional Norfolk hedging and others which are fenced. There is a stable with store room. There is a separate access to the larger of the paddocks which could be reinstated and a new driveway could be installed giving a separate access to the buildings at the rear which have potential for conversion under a Class Q permission. Please speak to the agent for more details. In the larger of the paddocks there are two wind turbines which are currently decommissioned but could be reinstated to provide an income if desired. At the head of the driveway there is a set of gates which are currently manual, however there is electricity in place to install electric gates for an incoming purchaser.
Grove Farm has an extensive outside lighting network which provides both security and a spectacular setting for evening and night time entertaining. Grove Farm would form a fantastic equestrian property with the outbuildings and barns offering American Barn style stabling potential.
