About this property

  • 8 Bell Hill is a delightful, detached period timber framed house with a pantiled modern extension to one side. Unusually for a property of this type, it is not listed. The current owners acquired the house in 2018 and have carried out extensive works to the property including a complete re-thatch of the main roof.

    The welcoming parquet floored hallway with recently installed book shelving to one wall leads in to the sitting room. This room features a wide Inglenook fireplace with Morso Squirrel wood burning stove, a beamed ceiling and freshly laid Norfolk Pamments to this room and the dining room beyond. An alcove in the sitting room has built-in cabinetry and French doors leading out into the garden.

    From the dining room a door leads into the newly installed Harvey Jones shaker style kitchen with new ‘Total Control' electric Aga, water softener, oak and granite working surfaces and integrated appliances. Beyond the kitchen is a fitted larder and beyond that a cloakroom with shelving. A utility room and further shower room completes the ground floor accommodation.

    A modern staircase leads up to the first floor where there are four bedrooms and a refitted bathroom with oval freestanding bath, separate shower with glazed screen and wall tiling. A cupboard in the corner contains the new gas fired central heating boiler and additional storage/shelving.


    The well presented and redecorated accommodation is shown in more detail in the attached floor plans.

    There is driveway parking for a number of cars and a single integral garage with newly installed electric Hormann door with remote control and keypad access.

This is a really lovely period house with a warm and welcoming feel right from when you step into the hallway, beautifully renovated by the current owners recently and in a great spot close to the centre of this super village it's well worth a look.
