    About this property

    • Manor Farm is a most attractive Grade II listed period property originally of timber frame construction and dating from the 17th century with later alterations in the 19th century when it was face in red brick.

      The property occupies an idyllic and unspoilt rural position situated off a small country lane with extensive gardens and land of about 3.15 acres sloping down to the River Tas.

      The property was acquired by the current owners in 2000 and was at the time the subject of a major restoration and refurbishment with extensive work carried out including new bespoke oak windows, oak doors and staircase, as well as re-plumbing, wiring and roofing together with the provision of new bathrooms and kitchen. The property has well-arranged accommodation which flows well, a large reception hall which leads on to a comfortable living room which has an open plan kitchen area with Aga, a formal dining room and garden room as well as a conservatory and office. There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms over the first and second floors as well as a useful separate annexe, extensive garaging and a substantial barn.

      The house is approached through a five bar field gate from the land onto a large gravelled drive with ample turning and parking space and where the garaging, barn and annexe are situated. To the west of the house there is a large paved terrace and this overlooks the extensive gardens and grounds which contain a variety of mature trees, a large natural pond and further land sloping down towards the River Tas where there is extensive river frontage. In all about 3.15 acres.

    When at Manor Farm I find it hard to believe one is so close to Norwich, it feels so peaceful and unspoilt. The house has been cleverly updated for modern living, yet retains much period detail and the garden and land sloping down to the River Tas are a joy.
