There are plenty of amenities on offer in both the Georgian market town of Holt and Fakenham including schooling for all ages, medical centres, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants, garages and a cinema. Holt is renowned for its attractive street frontages and for its wide and eclectic range of independent shops, as well as Bakers and Larners - an exceptional privately-owned department store. Holt is also home to Gresham's pre-prep, prep and senior schools, founded in 1555.

There are saltmarshes, long sandy beaches at low tides, creeks and the quintessential north Norfolk wide open skies. About 21 miles to the south is the Cathedral City of Norwich which has a vibrant business community and is recognised as the regional centre for shopping, cultural and leisure facilities. There is mainline railway connection to London terminals at Liverpool Street and Kings Cross St. Pancras Eurostar International; and to the north of the city, Norwich International Airport. __________ DESCRIPTION Street Farmhouse dates originally from the late 1800's and has been added to over the years to provide spacious and light filled accommodation that takes full advantage of lovely views over its land. The full impact of this home is realised as soon as you enter rather informally straight into the large kitchen/breakfast room, an extended L shaped space with a wall of full height picture windows capturing the wonderful views over the garden to the mature woodland and ponds. The stylish hardwood kitchen was handmade and designed by Norwich based designer John Barnard and comprises a range of fitted Ash wall and base and units under marble worktops. Integrated appliances include a double Smeg range cooker, extractor fan, dishwasher and large Fisher Paykel fridge freezer. A contemporary freestanding wood burning stove makes this a warm and welcoming family hub. Off the kitchen is a good-sized utility room with fitted cupboards, space and plumbing for washing machine, sink and separate WC. For a more formal entrance, the front door leads to a main reception hall which opens with double doors into the drawing room and into the dining room creating a very nice flow for larger gatherings. The drawing room is a fabulous west facing room with high ceiling, pine mantlepiece and wood burning stove and the dining room is adjacent to the kitchen allowing plenty of space for more formal entertaining. Further reception space includes a snug or study and beyond this another lovely double aspect sitting room with wood burning stove and sliding doors to the pool area. The pool room has a sauna, shower and separate WC and leads straight out onto the swimming pool courtyard. Another wing of the house can be easily separated to create a self contained annex with its own entrance, a small kitchenette, large sitting room with wood burning stove and a double bedroom with a newly fitted en suite bath and shower room.

The gardens are reasonably informal with some raised beds, mature shrubs and are enclosed by mature beech and mixed hedges. A beautifully kept grass tennis court and an enclosed swimming pool courtyard with west facing logia provide summer entertainment for all. Pasture and woodland are separated by a small stream which is one of the sources of the River Bure, with several wooden bridges between, 4 ponds fed by natural springs and a fine mix of mature trees including Lombardy Poplar, wild cherry, hawthorn, silver birch and willow to name a few create a fine habitat that welcomes many wild animals and birds from Chinese water deer to kingfisher and heron.
