A charming period detached three bedroom house with large two storey barn/workshop and other outbuildings occupying a large established plot approaching half an acre (subject to survey). Offering scope and great potential for further improvement and situated within the desirable village of Northwold- ' CHAIN FREE' viewings are recommended.
SITUATION&LOCATION Believed to date back to the mid 1700's, this charming period house occupies a central position within the sought after conservation village of Northwold and enjoys large established gardens extending to approximately half an acre (subject to survey). We understand that the property was originally two cottages and a Blacksmiths and much later a car repair garage although it has remained in the same ownership now since 1970 and just used as a dwelling house.
An extensive courtyard to the front is flanked by a substantial two storey brick, timber and pantiled barn/workshop; a further large chalk lump, brick and pantiled garage building as well as an open bayed timber framed store.
The main house has been generally maintained and improved over the years and benefits from Upvc double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system. However, there is scope for much further improvement and modernization and this also applies to the outbuildings which provide an excellent opportunity to incorporate further accommodation to the main house, holiday accommodation or an annex. Equally, for those purchasers seeking a home/business opportunity or realising a hobby that requires space, this property could be an excellent choice. Any such improvement would require local planning authority approval.
It is quite rare for properties like this to come to the market with such a range of benefits and opportunity's- literally all under one roof. Early viewings are recommended.
