PROPERTY The property consists of a detached unlisted period farmhouse that has an array of exposed timbers. It offers huge potential to refurbish and update and it is both spacious and versatile. In addition to the house is a substantial detached barn that could be adapted to suit a variety of purposes and potentially converted subject to planning permission.
The property is approached via a long driveway leading to the barn and a parking area. A path meanders up to the front door. The ground floor is currently arranged with the kitchen at one end and with two reception rooms. There is a bathroom to the other end of the ground floor. On the first floor are four double bedrooms, one is accessed from its own private staircase and there is also a shower room that is adjacent. There is further space on the second floor set out as two rooms and could be adapted for a variety of purposes.
In addition to the substantial barn there are further outbuildings which would benefit from refurbishment. Established gardens surround the house and are laid principally to lawn with an array of mature shrubs. To the rear is a former tennis court now in need of renovation.
The land is largely to the south and east and is set as fields. In total the land extends to approximately 12 acres and would make a perfect smallholding or could be adapted for equestrian.
LOCATION The property is located between South Lopham, with its excellent pub and Blo Norton. Blo Norton is a small village just 1.9 miles from the village of Garboldisham with village shop and Public House. Nearby Diss offers excellent amenities including schools, health facilities, sports facilities, regular bus service and main line railway station to London (Liverpool Street).
