About this property

    Pinecroft is a substantial home or approx. 4500sq ft set in rural surroundings close to the Norfolk Broads. The property is set apart from similar properties due to the extent of land it enjoys, with about 3 acres of mature gardens and grounds.

    The house has spacious rooms throughout, with an abundance of light. Of particular note is the main sitting room, with fireplace and window seat, a lovely dining room with sliding glazed doors out to the gardens and a large family room with bi-fold doors. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted, and has underfloor heating and there are further useful rooms such as study garden room and utility. The bedrooms are split over the ground and first floor. The ground floor hosts the principal bedroom with en-suite shower room, a further two bedrooms and family bath/shower room. On the first floor there are two en-suite bedrooms, with excellent loft storage that could provide further living space if converted. There is good storage throughout the house.

    The house is positioned centrally within the initial gardens, with off street parking, a large garage and expanses of lawns sweeping from the front of the house round to the rear. There is a terrace area, enclosed walled garden, hot tub and many points of interest with fine flowering cherries, and herbaceous beds and a high wall running along the southern part of the garden. Beyond the wall and accessed via the field gate is a meadow of around 2.25 acres, stretching away from the house to farmland beyond. This area is mown interspersed with specimen trees but could be utilised for equestrian use.
