    About this property

    • Kirn House, located in the heart of the North Norfolk village of Langham, is a unique offering. Given the central setting, with views of the church, the gardens of about 1.3 acres are an exceptional provider of space and privacy. When teamed with a house with the utmost potential, the property is an excellent chance to create one of the best houses in the village.

      Built in the 1980s, of brick and flint under a pantile roof, this vintage of house offers relative ease for both adding value and for adapting to personal requirements. Whether it be by changing the colour of the windows, extending in a contemporary fashion, or creating open plan living, there are plenty of options.

      You could of course simply work with the space already provided, which is light and airy, and well arranged. A central hall connects all the main rooms. There is a spacious sitting room, with fireplace and sliding glazed doors, which in turn leads into the conservatory, a study, a comfortable dining room, and the kitchen/breakfast room. A useful utility is at the back of the house with separate entrance after country or coastal walks, or tending the garden.

      The first floor hosts a principal bedroom, with en suite bathroom, with a further three bedrooms and family bathroom, all linked via a central landing. The house is perfectly liveable, but would benefit from updating cosmetically.

      The gardens and grounds of Kirn House are a defining feature of the property. With about 1.3 acres within the middle of the village, they afford a wonderful feeling of space and privacy whilst also providing an opportunity for all lifestyles. The entrance to Kirn House is from the south, onto a parking and turning area adjoining the house and double garage. The gardens to the south of the house are laid to lawn, with established shrubs and some fine trees including a Turkey Oak.

      The majority of the gardens are behind the house. An expanse of lawn sweeps away from the house out into the grounds, with areas divided by herbaceous beds, shrubs, hedging and brick and flint wall. Fruit trees, kitchen garden with greenhouse, woodland area, and further lawns all help to provide character and different areas of interest. A high south facing brick and flint wall marks the furthest boundary, with deep herbaceous beds that are a keen gardener's treasure trove.

      The gardens are at a stage where they could be easily simplified for either ease of management or to create further space for children to play sports, whilst room could be created for a tennis court and/or swimming pool. The land could of course be landscaped further.

      The double garage beside the house is an excellent storage space, complete with workshop area.

    I see this as a brilliant chance to create an exceptional village house, particularly with the wonderful gardens.
