About this property

DESCRIPTION Riverside Farm dates back to the 18th century and has been a much-loved family home since 1986. This lovely opportunity comes to market for the first time in that period and will be of great interest to buyers keen to secure a home which is ready to be moved on to the next stage.

The house was originally constructed in 1740 of rendered brick elevations under a pitched main roof and enjoys well-arranged accommodation on two floors. The property is accessed from the front into a porch entrance providing access to the principal ground floor rooms. Of particular note, is the charming sitting room with fireplace housing a large log burner. A garden room is accessed off this room and enjoys fine views over the gardens. The kitchen and utility room occupy the eastern end of the house and there is a further office and shower room.

There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom positioned off the main landing. All bedrooms benefit from fitted wardrobes and there is a useful attic which has conversion potential subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming.

Riverside Farm is approached via a private road which runs through and up to the property where there is a large hard standing providing parking for a number of vehicles. Much of the charm of the house remains in the gardens, which have been well tended and enjoy many points of interest. The rear gardens enjoy a delightful terrace positioned off the garden room and are fully enclosed by mature foliage.

Across the track lies a large area of garden which slopes away to a beautiful stream that flows around this area beautifully. There are a number of fruit trees and there is space for a kitchen garden.

Riverside Farm enjoys two very useful outbuildings. The garage/store shed known as a steel portal building provides additional parking/storage and there is a small workshop. Both buildings measure 30ft in length.

There is additional land which can be included within the sale comprising a large barn and polytunnels and further acreage available via separate negotiation.

Services - Mains electricity, oil fired central heating, private drainage system. Water provided by a well with filter system and pump to the house - the nearest mains water supply is on Podmore Lane.

Acreage - 1.30 acres (stms).

Local authority - Breckland District Council.
