A four-bedroom link-detached house in the former grounds of a historic mill has come up for sale in Saham Toney, near Watton, at a guide price of £550,000.
Named ‘Hideaway’ due to its setting down a private shared driveway, the property sits adjacent to Saham Mill, which was built in the late-1700s and converted to residential use in 1948. At one time, the mill was owned by the Twining family.
According to selling agents William H Brown, Hideaway is “presented in excellent order throughout” and provides “a perfect home for family living”.
A part-glazed front door opens to the welcoming entrance hall with doors to the living room, kitchen/diner, shower room and boiler room, along with a staircase leading upstairs with storage under.
The generous lounge features a woodburner, three radiators and double-glazed French doors opening to the rear garden.
For those who like to entertain, the kitchen/diner offers an abundance of space and comes equipped with a Rangemaster cooker with extractor over, as well as space for an American-style fridge/freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher.
The kitchen also features a comprehensive range of floor and wall-mounted bespoke fitted units with solid oak work surfaces over, an inset ceramic sink and drainer with stainless steel mixer tap over, central island breakfast bar, tiled flooring, and space for an eight-seater dining table.
There are double-glazed windows to the front and rear aspect of the kitchen/diner, with a part double-glazed door opening to the front aspect and double-glazed French doors opening to the rear.
A further set of double doors open to a large conservatory with electric fire, laminate flooring and French doors opening on both sides to decking and patio. William H Brown says the room “offers a marvellous entertaining space to sit and enjoy the garden, watch movies and TV shows in the evenings and provides another dining space”.
The ground-floor shower room comprises a hand wash basin, low-level WC, shower cubicle, radiator, shaving sockets, extractor and an obscured double-glazed window to the rear.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, including a master with en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. The en suite offers a walk-in double shower cubicle with power shower, while the family bathroom has a shower cubicle and panel Jacuzzi bath.
The fully enclosed rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and includes a raised decking area for al fresco dining in the warmer months. There is also a separate patio which is ideal for barbecuing.
To the front, a gated shingle driveway offers a secure and enclosed entrance to the property. It also provides off-road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the double garage, one side of which has been converted into an office with double glazing throughout and oil-fired central heating.
Saham Toney is around two miles from Watton and eight miles from Swaffham. The village has a pub called The Old Bell and a Church of England primary school with just over 100 pupils.
The property is a short distance from Richmond Park Golf Course.
