Beck Cottage is an extremely attractive period property, sensitively extended, yet with many original features, built of brick elevations under a pantile roof. It is situated within the village of Little Barningham alongside a small stream.
The welcoming kitchen has a traditional pamment floor, a range of hand-made Shaker- style units with integrated double oven, induction hob, extractor fan, dishwasher and small refrigerator. The oil- fired Rayburn heats the water and provides the central heating. There is space for a large kitchen table.
Alongside the kitchen is a boot room, utility and wc with ceramic tiled flooring as well as cupboards and work tops, space for fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a north facing larder with marble slab and shelving. The dining room and sitting room are lovely reception rooms each with a wood burning stove. The latter has French doors out to the garden. The open landing with a large load-bearing book case, leads to three good-sized double bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en-suite with power shower. The other two bedrooms are served by a separate family bathroom.
This property has 0.33 acres of land.
Outside the property enjoys an all-year round garden being under-planted with naturalised spring bulbs and a succession of flowering shrubs and roses. The well- stocked perennial borders provide scent and colour and attract a variety of bees and butterflies. Paths lead through the garden with rose arches, four productive raised beds, a Hartley Botanic greenhouse, wildlife pond, shed and compost bins. An oak- framed pergola covered in clematis and roses provides a sheltered seating area. There are resident hedgehogs and the garden attracts a wide variety of birds. There is a large gravel parking area for several vehicles approached through a double gate. The separate home office has an exterior log store. A small stream borders the garden to the east.
Situated in the delightful village of Little Barningham, Beck Cottage is located centrally within the village and is approximately 6 miles from the Georgian market town of Holt and 6 miles from the market town of Aylsham. The area surrounding is renowned for being of outstanding natural beauty and high landscape quality and there are many bridle paths and footpaths available. Holt and Aylsham have excellent shopping, schooling and leisure facilities including Greshams School at Holt, which takes boys and girls from preparatory school to sixth form, and Beeston Preparatory School for boys and girls. There are many excellent restaurants and public houses in the area including The Walpole Arms at Itteringham, The Saracens Head at Wolterton and The Buckinghamshire Arms at Blickling. Village shops/post offices are at the neighbouring villages of Itteringham, Corpusty and Aldborough.
