It is constructed of flint with some coursed pebbles and detailed brick work, has sash windows, tall ceiling heights and a tall pitched pantile roof. The part-glazed double front doors sit under a covered arch-style porch with bench seating, and open into the entrance hallway. To your left is the drawing room, an elegant bright room with original wooden flooring, magnificent old beams and a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. The room is double aspect to north and south with glazed door to the garden. The dining hall is a fabulous room that is galleried with a minstrel style landing above. Originally there would have been bedroom space above this room (which could potentially be reinstated) and it is flooded with natural light from windows on two levels. Large original pamments run throughout this room and there is another inglenook style fireplace, and further original beams which give an insight into the former interior layout which would have been many smaller rooms. The kitchen breakfast room sits on the west end of the house and is only divided from the dining hall by book shelving and curtains, allowing for an exceptionally large room for family living if desired. This room has some fitted cupboards, a double Belfast sink and space for an undercounter dishwasher and fridge. An oil-fired Rayburn takes pride of place adjacent to the original bread oven. On either side of this room doors lead out to the garden. There is an adjacent utility room which can currently only be accessed from outside. However, there is potential to access this from the kitchen subject to planning and listed building consent. Norfolk winder stairs lead up from the kitchen (this is not the main staircase) to the landing above where an interior window looks down to the dining hall. The main bedroom is located on the west end of the property and features a very lovely stone arched fireplace which is mentioned in the Listing and has a further small wood burning stove. With triple aspect this is another bright room. There is a family bathroom off this landing and further winding stairs lead up to the loft space, which we are told holds potential for more living space with some roof structure changes and again subject to any necessary planning and consents. The wide oak main stairs lead up from the dining hall to the galleried landing, currently used as a study area. Beyond this there are two double rooms and a shower room/WC. __________ OUTSIDE Approached with established right of way over a neighbouring farm track the barns are on your right-hand side. These would have been the original farm buildings set around two central courtyard areas and today they offer huge potential either for conversion or income potential subject to any necessary planning and consent. Currently the vendors have re-roofed two of the barns to create a good-sized workshop/double garage and a further barn which is ideal as a games/party room. Behind the barns is an area of nature friendly garden. Between the house and barns is a driveway and parking area. On the south side of the house is the main garden which has lovely southerly views and features a substantial magnolia tree. The grounds are planted with apples, quince, damson, pear, apricot, plum and figs. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY North Norfolk District Council Band G __________ SERVICES Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating and Rayburn __________ DIRECTIONS On the A148 Fakenham - Holt road at The Crawfish Public House turn north towards Hindringham. Follow this road for approximately 2 miles to Hindringham village and the entrance for Waterloo Farmhouse can be found on your right immediately after the village hall. Take the right-hand track past the corn store to the property. __________ DATE DETAILS PRODUCED 8th July 2020 __________ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1.
