A magnificent period house located in the heart of one of the most desirable Villages within West Norfolk.

A magnificent period house located in the heart of one of the most desirable Villages within West Norfolk. 'Lion House' is a property that rarely ever becomes available to purchase. This is largely due to the fact that it is bursting with character on the inside and provides around 1 acre of gardens and grounds on the outside meaning that it will always serve as a beautifully balanced, family home. The current owners have poured a huge level of love, time and effort in improving things further over the last few years and spending any level of time there is now a real pleasure. Downstairs, the main living, eating and dining areas all lead into one another and the majority of this space spans 34ft across the rear making the most of the privacy and openness of the gardens. There are exposed floorboards, fireplaces and stoves along with double glazed, traditional replacement windows throughout and this theme continues through into a separate sitting room that is positioned to the front. More recently, there has been a side extension added that has created a utility, downstairs shower room and additional bedroom along with a striking first floor, galleried studio/office space. Upstairs, the landing and flight of stairs have matching wall panels running throughout as does the main entrance hall itself. Each of the bedrooms lead from this galleried area and all of them are genuinely spacious in size with the master bedroom having the benefit of a walk-in wardrobe and an extremely enviable en-suite bathroom which is finished to a more contemporary and designer standard. Even the main bathroom extends to almost 15ft in size and provides both a roll-top bath and separate shower. The level of accommodation will not disappoint and the mature, established outside areas will only reinforce the impressiveness of this individual property even further - early viewing is essential to experience both its style and its level of space to the full. read more
