About this property

DESCRIPTION The Heathlands dates to Victorian times and is a most attractive detached period farmhouse, set in wonderfully private grounds of 10.66 acres (stms) in the highly sought-after Broadland village of Blofield Heath. The house enjoys outstanding views over its formal gardens and distant landscape, being beautifully presented throughout with comfortable and elegant interiors.

The house has undergone significant improvements in the last seven years, particularly to the windows, doors, kitchen and bathroom equipment and flooring. There is a super feel about the house which is approached at the front into the main hall with its elegant staircase and minton tiled flooring with access to the principal ground floor rooms. The farmhouse style kitchen enjoys a range of shaker style base units under Oak worktops configurated in an 'L' shape format, which links superbly with the utility area, dining room and out to the front gardens.

The house flows extremely well, particularly on the ground floor with the dining room occupying one of the bay windows and enjoys an original fireplace. Across the hall lies the drawing room with log burner, a particular feature is the access onto the terrace.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, all being comfortable double rooms accessed from a spacious landing which also serves the family bathroom. The principal bedroom and guest bedroom both enjoy en-suite shower rooms and have been beautifully decorated with bespoke fittings. The views across the grounds from the bedrooms are outstanding and a key feature of the house.

Outside - The Heathlands is approached from Laundry Lane, then onto a shingled private shared driveway serving two properties. The Heathlands is the last house on the right with the drive flowing round to the rear, with a shingled hard standing enjoying parking for a number of vehicles.

The formal gardens are at the front of the house approached via the terrace which wraps around the house taking advantage of the southerly aspect. The formal garden is beautifully lawned and bordered by a mixture of mature hedging, an outstanding fir tree and a mixture of young trees and flower beds.

The rear gardens flow from east to west and are bordered by a mature hedging and a mixture of Oak, Poplars and Pine trees which continue into the grounds. There is so much on offer here, the land will suits families of all sizes with plenty of room to roam and enjoy the fine views back towards the house.

Holiday let - At the rear of the house, there is a successful holiday let of timber frame construction, namely, The Old Potting Shed and can be found on Airbnb with an outstanding rating of 4.87*. The let enjoys well-arranged accommodation comprising an open plan kitchen, dining sitting room with log burner, double bedroom and bathroom. To the outside there is a raised decked area which overlooks the parkland.

The whole is superbly tucked away and will suit those keen to establish themselves in a lovely part of Norfolk, with excellent local amenities and transport links.

Services - Mains water, mains electricity, mains drainage, LPG heating and cooker for the main house. Holiday let is completely electric and is heated via portable oil storage heaters together with a log burner.
