    About this property

    • Hopton House is a substantial 18th century residence which was further enlarged during the Victorian period. Offering a staggering 4830 sq ft of flexible accommodation, the property makes a remarkable family home situated on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders.

      During the owner's tenure the house has been tastefully renovated to create a stylish home but crucially retaining and emphasising the character features.

      The impressive ground floor comprises of a formal sitting room, dining room, snug, study and family room as well as a renovated shower room, separate cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room with utility and pantry and a generous cellar providing useful storage. Several of the rooms can be utilised for different purposes and as such could be used for playrooms, cinema rooms and gyms if required. From the entrance into the elegant hallway to the front reception rooms with attractive bay windows and feature fireplaces there is an abundance of the expected character but balanced perfectly for modern living.

      The first-floor features five double bedrooms, each tastefully decorated and benefitting from the high ceilings of the period. The principal room contains a dressing room and there are two recently renovated bath and shower rooms to this floor featuring high quality Burlington fittings.

      An additional second floor split into three attic rooms offers scope for a purchaser to transform these into additional bedrooms if needed or allow for exceptional further storage.

      The property is approached via a five-bar wooden gate leading to an ample gravel driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles. The main garden benefits from a wonderful amount of natural privacy so hard to find on a village house. The owners have fully enclosed the garden to be pet and child friendly and with several mature shrubs and trees as well as wildflowers in situ, this gives the gardens more of a country house feel as opposed to a village home.

      A useful outdoor workshop gives secure storage for tools and garden equipment. In all the plot measures in at an impressive 0.43 acres approximately.
