Hampson House is an imposing early Edwardian family home, formerly The Vicarage, enjoying a wonderful position on the crest of a hill providing fine views over the Wensum Valley.
The house, with distinctive gabled bays, is a handsome house set back from Folgate Lane with fine period detail throughout. This includes an impressive staircase, original fireplaces, picture rails, window seats together with spacious and light rooms typical of the period.
The house enjoys over 2800 square feet of living space, with a pleasingly conventional layout. An entrance and staircase hall runs the length of the house linking all the main rooms which include the south facing drawing room and sitting room, and a dining room all with fireplaces. The functional kitchen is east facing, with a useful adjoining utility room and pantry.
The split level first floor hosts five bedrooms, with a shower room and bathroom. Most of the bedrooms have useful cupboards, and all enjoy the same light and space of the ground floor rooms, with views over the gardens. The staircase continues up to a second floor, with two further bedrooms and extensive loft space providing further potential.
The house has been maintained but it would be fair say that updating in places would be required.
Hampson House is approached through a pair of five bar wooden gates, onto a turning and parking area in front of the house. The drive continues up and round to a further parking area to the side of the house and adjoining the garage.
The impressive gardens and grounds surround the house, providing good privacy with mature boundaries. There are expanses of lawn to the east and south-west which are partly terraced with steps to a large level area of lawn. There is an orchard and some particularly fine trees throughout the grounds including Oak and Beech.
To the north of the main house is the charming two storey garage, of traditional Edwardian construction, with a staircase up to a hayloft. This building has scope for many different uses.

This house has such a fantastic position, with huge potential to take in the views over the valley it could become one of the very best houses in the area.Ben Rivett
