An attractive Georgian house with 7240 sq/ft of accommodation & just under 2 acres of gardens.

Shropham House is a most attractive Late Georgian and Regency village house that has been lovingly restored in its entirety to provide superb family accommodation that is finished to an excellent standard. Built of gault brick and partly flint elevations under slate hipped roofs with chimney stacks left and right, the property offers over 7,000 sq/ft of internal accommodation over two storeys. The size and proportions of this property are met immediately upon entering the entrance hall which has a wealth of space and light along with wooden floors and high ceilings. This leads to a number of impressive reception rooms including a sitting room with sash windows and shutters, a 24 foot drawing room and a dining room both with south facing sash windows overlooking the gardens. All enjoy many period features such as cornicing, picture rails, ceiling roses, traditional cast iron radiators and fireplaces with wood burning stoves. The kitchen is stunning with traditional handmade wall units encompassing American style fridge freezer and integrated oven alongside a pantry, a Lacanche range oven set within the chimney breast, a functional kitchen island with marble work surface, butler sink, cabinets and breakfast bar. The kitchen extends with underfloor heating under pamment flooring into a large dining space with bifolding doors out to a courtyard. The ground floor is complete with study, utility room, access to a cellar, and the Regency cross wing extension containing a rear hall with cloakroom, guest WC, boot room and a room that has had many purposes over the years including music room, gym, snug, but could perhaps make a fantastic bar. A beautiful deep step staircase leads to an open landing to the principal bedroom with large en suite shower room and a spacious fully fitted walk in dressing room. There are three further large double bedrooms of excellent proportions with two family bathrooms, one with a separate shower unit. Into the cross wing section of the first floor are two further double bedrooms, a bathroom and an extremely comfortable home office, perfect for working from home, and separate enough from the rest of the house.

This property has 1.95 acres of land.


Outside, the property enjoys fabulous mature gardens and grounds and a number of useful outbuildings. Approached through pillared entrances in brick and flint wall via a gravel carriage driveway, a detached brick built barn under pantile roof has a large garage, store room, workshop and a large general purpose room, whilst above are four further rooms which in all could be converted to ancillary annexed accommodation subject to necessary planning consents. To the rear of this barn is a small yard with open shelters where chickens have been kept in the past. Additionally, another double garage is attached to a range of small store rooms and a greenhouse to the rear into the gardens. To the west of this is a double cart shed which is attached to a summer house with power and water and acts as a useful garden kitchen, perfect for entertaining on the adjacent evening terrace. The southern façade of Shropham House is most delightful and is draped in flowering wisteria during the summer months overlooking lush formal lawn gardens with well stocked shrub beds and a mixture of hedge and tree lined borders.


Shropham House is situated on the centre of the Breckland village of Shropham, conveniently located within easy reach of the A11 giving access to Norwich, Cambridge and London.
