    About this property

    • Gibraltar Farm is an attractive Grade II listed farmhouse which has been enhanced during the current owners tenure to offer a characterful, spacious and flexible property within a wonderful private setting within south Norfolk countryside and grounds of about 9.1 acres.

      The house offers exceptional family accommodation and in particular a superb double height reception hall provides a stunning entrance to the home. This area complete with fireplace and exposed timbers is a superb multi-functional space and during the current owners tenure has been used as a dining hall as well as a more informal television area. The ground floor comprises of a spacious dining room with feature fireplace and inset wood burner, a sitting room also with fireplace and wood burner, kitchen/breakfast room with a range of wall and base level units underneath granite worktops as well as a useful built in table. An ideal play room area has been created, perfect for families but this could also be utilised as a work from home space if desired. A separate Utility room and cloakroom are also on this floor.

      To the first floor is a further sitting room which the current owners have used as a cinema room. This also features another wood burning stove and the characterful beams and exposed timbers. Well situated for a large family who wish to have their own space in the evenings, this would make a great teenagers living room.

      The principal bedroom suite provides a walk in dressing room and four piece en suite which can also be accessed from the landing. Two further bedrooms are on this floor as well as a second en suite shower room.

      On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. One of these bedrooms is accessed solely from a first floor bedroom and so would make an excellent teenagers bedroom who wanted to have extra space.

      The property is approached via electronic gates giving excellent security and the gravel driveway sweeps towards a large parking area for numerous vehicles. Of particular note is the most impressive lake within the gardens which creates a superb habitat for local wildlife as well as a peaceful environment to enjoy lakeside family gatherings. The current owners have made the most of this by creating an outdoor, covered entertaining area, ideal for BBQs and events, enjoying a wonderful view of the lake.

      The formal gardens are laid to lawn with the outlying grounds organised as paddocks to be utilised how a buyer wishes and would be suitable for equine purposes if desired.

      Ideal for working from home, a separate studio which the owners converted from outbuildings makes a highly useful space and also features a kitchen, shower room, games room and office area which could double up as brilliant guest accommodation or perhaps could make for multi-generational living with the right permissions in place.

      A workshop provides secure garden storage for machinery or potential to be utilised in other ways such as a gym room if a buyer prefers.

    The setting is absolutely magical and the lake in particular is a standout highlight.
