About this property

DESCRIPTION Nestled in the heart of the peaceful and well serviced village of Swanton Morley, and within striking distance of the market town of Dereham, lies Pond Farm, a wonderfully charming brick and flint residence with its varying elevations, open plan arrangements and delightful gardens of around an acre.

Pond Farm was converted in the early 1980's and enjoys wonderful ceiling heights throughout and a general feeling of space and tranquility. The barn is approached at the front into a wide entrance hall servicing the principal ground floor rooms which all link in very well with one another. The kitchen lies off the hall in an open plan arrangement and enjoys an Aga; a super feature of the kitchen are the tri-fold doors opening onto a stunning terrace walled garden, importantly facing to the west for the evening sun.

The dining room is accessed off the hall but can also be approached from the walled terrace garden, a lovely feature in the summer months. The dining area flows nicely as steps lead up into the sitting room which acts as the focal point to the property. Spanning nearly 25ft with its floor to ceiling glass, exposed beams, incredible vaulted ceiling and a log burner, there is every reason to entertain here or settle down in the quiet whilst enjoying fine views over the gardens.

The study and principal bedroom are positioned off the sitting room, with the main bedroom occupying the west façade. The bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom. Further ground floor rooms include a versatile piano room/study, cloakroom, and garage. The garage provides any buyer with an opportunity to incorporate further accommodation into the house, or derive an income with a holiday let arrangement, subject to the necessary planning consents being forthcoming. A staircase from the hall provides access to a large guest bedroom which stands above the garage.

The first floor is approached off the sitting room via the main staircase. There are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom, each with velux windows providing plenty of natural light. Pond Farm benefits from an excellent range of storage, particularly in bedroom 3.

Outside - The gardens and grounds act as a major feature of Pond Farm and are approached off Greengate into a private shingled drive which leads past the property and round to the garage.

The main rear gardens have been beautifully tended by the current owners being mainly laid to lawn with a number of specimen trees and mature flower beds and borders whilst being fully enclosed by post and rail fencing.

At the rear there is a detached garage and workshop under a pantile roof and covered wood store of timber framed construction, all in very good order. Within the gardens lies a glasshouse and potting shed which further benefit the whole.

Here is a wonderful opportunity for a wide variety of buyers keen to establish themselves in a versatile home with a rural feel with farmland views and pleasant walks, yet in a location with superb access links to Norwich, London, and North Norfolk.
