General

Saham Lodge comprises a delightful country home and is Listed Grade II as a property of architectural and historic interest dating back to 1724, with later 19th Century additions. The property is set in delightful grounds of about 15 acres or thereabouts (subject to measured survey) in south-west Norfolk. The house has been occupied as a family house for many years, although it has been vacant for a short while. The accommodation is arranged on two floors and divided into a number of different portions, with principal reception rooms at the front and two self-contained flats to the side which have been let to derive an income over the years. The property requires complete renovation and improvement throughout and the price reflects the work that is necessary but the potential is great either to recreate a wonderful family home or to divide it up in a number of ways. Saham Lodge is well set back from the road and approached via a drive leading through a parkland style setting up to the front of the house and round to the side where there is a garage and plenty of hard standing for vehicles. Much of the joy of the property rests with the unspoilt private location. The gardens surround the house with parkland/meadow and spinneys beyond. An office/lodge at the side of the property is included in the sale and the whole will be of great interest to buyers looking to acquire a fine old house with scope for improvement and renovation.
