The North Norfolk Broads are also within easy reach and there are a number of private and state schools in the area together with excellent leisure facilities including golf courses at Cromer and Sherringham. Norwich was an expanding international airport and main railway station (London Liverpool Street 100 minutes) whilst there are local rail connections at North Walsham linking through to Norwich and London. __________ DESCRIPTION The Old Vicarage is a substantial property of red brick construction under a slate roof. The present owners have occupied the property for 52 years, during which time they have extended the ground floor accommodation with the addition of a large living/garden room. The property has been well-maintained throughout and in recent years all the windows have been replaced with double glazed panels, and repair to the wooden sash. The rooms are all well-proportioned throughout with good ceiling heights and many period features retained, including sash windows, window shutters, picture rails, ceiling roses, and geometric floor tiles, as well as an elegant staircase leading to the first floor. __________ GROUND FLOOR The wonderful solid oak front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with geometric floor tiling, door to inner lobby, and an attractive oak staircase with turned balusters, leading to the first floor. The study is accessed off from the main entrance hall. It is a spacious room enjoying a dual aspect and featuring an open fireplace and window shutters. The sitting room and dining room are accessed off the inner lobby. The sitting room is well-proportioned, with a lovely long bay window that adds light and character to this living space. The room features window shutters, picture rail, and a marble fireplace with tile hearth. The dining room is another well-proportioned with a south and east facing aspect over the formal gardens. The room features wood flooring, picture rail, ceiling rose, and an open fireplace with built-in china cupboard to one side. From the dining room and the inner lobby there is a passage leading through to the north wing. Separate to the kitchen, there is a butler's pantry which is fully fitted with shelving, cupboards, drawers, and a deep glazed sink. There is also a larder cupboard, which provides further storage. The kitchen has a range of built-in cabinets with a large island unit, and a 4-oven Aga set in a recess. From the kitchen there is a second staircase leading to the first floor. The utility room has a range of built-in cupboards and a butler sink. The living/garden room was added to the property in 1973. It is a superbly light and airy room, enjoying a triple aspect bays to the east, south and west. This room also features wood flooring, wood burner and a set of double doors opening out to the rear garden. Leading off from the living/garden room there is a shower room with walk-in shower, wash hand basin, and WC. __________ FIRST FLOOR There are 5 bedrooms on the first floor, although bedroom 3 presently serves as a snug. The snug features half wall panelling and a wood burner. The family bathroom features a circular sunken bath, wash hand basin and WC. __________ OUTSIDE The Old Vicarage stands well back from the road and is screened by tall mature hedging and trees. The long-gravelled driveway, lined with mature hedging and trees, leads to the turning circle at the front of the house. To the front and side of the property there is a cart lodge and a single garage with hayloft above and an adjoining 2 stall stable/outbuilding. We have been advised by the present owner that planning had previously been granted to convert the garage/hayloft/stable into ancillary accommodation. The application has since lapsed but could potentially be re-instated. The gardens and grounds are a beautiful feature of this property, extending in all to approximately 2.0 acres (stms). They have been beautifully landscaped and extensively planted over the years and comprise numerous specimen trees and shrubs, mature hedging and meticulously planted borders. The summer house is of brick and timber constructed with a pantile roof, completed approximately two years ago. From here one can enjoy lovely views of the garden and further benefitting from far reaching countryside views over neighbouring farmland. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY Broadland District Council, Band: G __________ SERVICES Oil-fired central heating, mains electricity and water, private drainage (septic tank) __________ EPC RATING F __________ TENURE Freehold __________ DIRECTIONS From Norwich take the A140/Cromer Road to Aylsham.
