FULL DESCRIPTION A stunning cottage set in around a third of an acre (stms) in the delightful village of Martham. Built in 1710 the property was the original Thatchers Cottage for the village with a fascinating story regarding the well in the garden being the central location for villagers collecting their water. There were several later additions around the 1970's and now the property comes to market for the first time in eight years as a spacious family home with plenty of internal accommodation, and gorgeous gardens and grounds. There are some wonderful features throughout with the original exposed beams, feature fireplaces and sloping ceilings married with new additions such as the open plan new kitchen breakfast room fitted in 2018 with a range of wall and base units, integral appliances and a stunning kitchen island with calor gas four ring hob, unique bathroom suites and a brand new roof added in 2016 by the well known builder, Mark Crafer. The current owners loved the style of a property built in the 18th century but found the thatch unpractical therefore completely removing in 2016 and adding a new tiled roof; something which has benefited the current efficiency of the home dramatically.
You enter number 16 through the original solid Oak door into a small entrance hall ideal for shoes and coats. Access is available left and right to the kitchen breakfast room, and the lounge. The lounge features exposed beams, a feature fireplace, and offers access into the study. The kitchen breakfast room is the hub of the home, and where the current owners spend a lot of their time. There is access to the internal annexe which could easily be used as an Airbnb business opportunity with private access from the garden, and second reception room, as well as the dining room where you can enjoy walking outside through two large double doors into the courtyard garden. The utility room and downstairs bathroom complete the downstairs accommodation.
Moving upstairs the property offers four double bedrooms with three of the rooms featuring dual aspect double glazed windows where lots of light pours into these stunning rooms. There is also a bespoke double shower room off landing.
To the outside there is a small garden at the front with a range of mature shrubs and borders with a long driveway to the side offering parking for several vehicles. From the driveway you can access to double garage with power and light, and the courtyard patio garden; a lovely place for dining in the summer months. The vendors have done a wonderful job transforming the garden with a range of beautiful flowers, walkways and mature borders, all enclosed by panel fencing.
