Property Description

PROPERTY A substantial former farmhouse with versatility and enormous potential.

Wingfield Farm House is an impressive period former farmhouse with later additions. The property is spacious and offers highly flexible accommodation that can be adapted to suit a variety of needs. Whilst the vendors have made some improvements to the property during their ownership it is now considered to offer huge potential and offers enormous scope for further improvement. Of particular note is the open plan kitchen/dining/living room which forms the heart of the house. The current vendors use the front reception space as a dining room but this would make an excellent sitting room. There is a large reception hall that can be used for a variety of purposes and a conservatory off the sitting room. To the rear of the ground floor is a spacious room that was formerly a garage but it is considered this now requires some structural repairs.

On the first floor are 5 spacious bedrooms and the principal bedroom has the benefit of an ensuite shower room. Externally the vendors replaced a substantial outbuilding and former a games/leisure room that until recently has been used a library. There is an attached garage.

A sweeping driveway approaches the property from the road leading to a parking area for several cars. The garden is laid principally to lawn and bordered by mature trees and shrubs. There is a pond and the gardens abut farmland to two sides. The gardens offer a wonderful blank canvas to landscape.

The historic market town of Diss is a further 8 miles to the north with the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich.
