Property Description

The house is set back from Raveningham Road with a driveway leading round to a large gravel parking area at the front in addition to a further parking area at the side of the property with a two bay cart lodge and garden store beside. Adjoining the road and forming part of the land conveyed is a now derelict cottage which prospective purchasers may wish to explore reinstating (subject to gaining the necessary consents). To the front, and wrapping round to the south side of the property, is a large area of pasture which is currently enclosed for livestock, beside this is an attractive natural pond. The formal gardens are found adjoining the west elevation of the property framed by established hedges and tree which blend into a lovely wooded area. Also forming part of the land conveyed is a further area of grassland accessed through the wooded area. In total the land extends to approximately 7.2 acres (sts).

The accommodation at Lodge Farm is arranged over two floors and retains many original features including sash windows, shutters and exposed timbers. Of particular note is the main entrance door with decorative transom which opens to a central entrance hall. There are two reception rooms accessed from the entrance hall both of which have large sash windows and open fireplaces. The accommodation steps down as you move towards the rear of the property where a rear hall connects a utility room and WC with a large open plan kitchen/breakfast room which links well with the rear garden. A further staircase is accessed through the kitchen which rises to a rear landing connecting the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, quite possibly the original servants staircase.

The first floor is split level which gives wonderful character to the accommodation. There are five bedrooms located on this floor and a spacious family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower. The master bedroom is located at the rear of the property, overlooking the garden, and has a wealth of character with exposed timbers, large wardrobe cupboard and an en-suite bathroom.


A bridleway runs along the northern boundary of the property.

A right of way has been granted, along the first section of the driveway to Lodge Farm, in favour of the adjoining land owner to access their field.

There is a covered well which is located in the rear garden.


Mains water and electricity are connected. Drainage is to a septic tank. Heating is provided by way of oil central heating (Durrants has not tested any apparatus, equipment, fittings or services and so cannot verify they are in working order.)
