A large country home with bags of period charm is up for sale in Wreningham, near Wymondham, for offers in excess of £750,000.
Set within a plot of approximately 0.8 acres, the three-storey property boasts six bedrooms spread over the top two floors and an impressive living space totalling over 2,760 sq ft.
It has been lovingly cared for and extended over the years and includes a number of unique character features including some exposed beams that selling agents Hammond & Stratford say are reclaimed from Norwich Cathedral – dating back to the 1500s.
Through the porch, the entrance hall welcomes you into the home and provides access to a WC, study with doors to the garden, and a large lounge that enjoys a double aspect and a grand open fireplace.
To the other side of the entrance hall is the dining room – also with garden access – with an archway that opens into the charming kitchen/breakfast room.
This is a great family space with plenty of room for families to cook and eat together. An “enormous” bay window lets in lots of light and the central island with wood countertop makes for a lovely spot to socialise.
The kitchen has a built-in Bosch dishwasher, Miele fridge freezer and a blue range cooker which is framed by a quirky surround with pillars on either side disguising handy storage cupboards.
The splashback is another unique feature, with an ornate tile design of an olive tree having been added by a previous owner who had a property in France and wanted to sprinkle some culinary memories around the room. More images of herbs can be found across the rest of the kitchen too.
Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful lobby/utility room which leads into a family room – ideal for relaxing in after a meal together.
Four of the six bedrooms can be found on the first floor, each with its own character and added storage space. The large master bedroom has the benefit of its own en suite, while the rest of the rooms share a family bathroom with a corner bath and shower.
The final two bedrooms can be found on the second floor, and also have integrated storage. Hammond & Stratford notes that one of the bedrooms is currently used as a music room and another as a playroom, demonstrating the versatility of this expansive family home.
Outside, the driveway opens into a generous off-road parking area with lawn and mature planting to either side adjoining a double garage with power and lighting.
Adjacent to the garage is a useful covered storage space and the cover to a private water treatment plant.
A wooden gate to the left of the house leads through into the private south-west facing garden with a large area of lawn, a dry ditch with a bridge and a patio abutting the house. Mature trees and shrubs and raised beds flank the lawn and there is a greenhouse and garden shed to one side.
A gate at the far end of the garden takes you into an uncultivated area that could act as a perfect wildlife meadow for nature lovers.
