Sympathetically renovated stable conversion in delightful rural village position, wonderful plot extending to over 2 acres (stms), spacious five bedroom accommodation, superb 29'8 main reception room, stunning 'Kestrel' re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room, fantastic established gardens. Energy rating D 56.
A beautifully converted former stable block, the property sits in a wonderful rural position, accessed by a long private driveway serving it and the neighbouring property. The overall plot extends to approximately two acres (subject to measured survey) incorporating formal gardens, a large pond and an area of woodland.
The stable wraps around a secluded walled central courtyard area and is slightly elevated above the main gardens, with wonderful views from many of the rooms.
You are initially greeted by a spacious entrance hall with solid oak panelled doors leading off and an open-tread staircase up to the first floor, where two of the five bedrooms are to be found (one with ensuite dressing room).
The recently converted front bedroom is double aspect, with the original water pump displayed within a glass cabinet to one side, a built-in double wardrobe and an ensuite cloakroom. The two remaining bedrooms also both have ensuite facilities.
The main family bathroom is particularly spacious, measuring 13' x 9'10 with a re-fitted white suite including a slipper-style freestanding bath. The main reception room, which formerly housed the stalls, has been opened up into a wonderful 29'8 open-plan space with multi-fuel eco burner. A door leads off into the stunning re-fitted kitchen with pippy oak units, granite work surfaces and breakfast area.
Double doors from the reception room also provide access to the 16'4 conservatory, which enjoys raised panoramic views across the gardens and has a central glazed lantern roof, affording plenty of natural light.
A triple car port and driveway to the rear off the property provide generous off road parking and storage/work space.
LOCATION The village of Dilham lies in an attractive part of North Norfolk just to the west of the upper reaches of the River Ant and is one of the most northerly of the Broadland villages. From Dilham Staithe the River Ant passes through Barton Broad, one of the largest of the Norfolk Broads, to eventually join the Bure.
The village itself has a church and a public house with a bowling green. The nearest railway station is four miles from the property at Worstead and provides regular services on the Norwich to Sheringham line. Dilham is located mid way between the market towns of North Walsham and Stalham, both of which offer a good range of shops, schools, supermarkets, & doctors' surgeries.

Immediately adjoining the conservatory is a large area of raised decking, which provides a wonderful outdoor entertaining space, set against the backdrop of the remaining grounds.
As you walk around the grounds, you will find a wide selection of mature trees, a large pond, paddock, large lawns and a pretty formal garden space. Much of the garden enjoys high levels of privacy and seclusion.
