A former coach house sympathetically restored and extended dating from to circa 1800.
Sotherton House is approached by a shared private gravelled drive in the popular residential area north of Norwich in Old Catton which contains many attractive period properties. The property is 2 miles from the Cathedral and city centre of Norwich, and there is easy access to the rest of the county via the Norwich Ring Road and now the North Distributor Road which will link to the Norwich Southern Bypass. Norwich Airport is also conveniently located to the north of the city.
Sotherton House dates from circa 1800 and is a former coach house which has been extensively restored and sympathetically extended to create a substantial family house. Set in partly walled gardens with extensive gravelled parking areas, the property was formally the coach house to a nearby substantial Georgian property.
The property was acquired by the current owners in September 2014 and since then, has been the subject of a complete program of restoration and refurbishment, sympathetically extended to create this substantial house. The house has well-arranged and spacious accommodation with large and well-proportioned rooms, in particular the superb custom-built kitchen/dining room with orangery extension, drawing room, further reception room/bedroom 4 and study/library/bedroom 5 and shower room on the ground floor. On the first floor are 2 further bedrooms, one en-suite bathroom, and a further bedroom and bathroom.
Some work remains to be carried out including the installation of the 2 bathrooms on the first floor, as well as completing some internal decorations and finishing the orangery roof/lantern. There is a walled garden to the front of the property and a larger partly walled garden to the rear.
The house is approached over a shared gravel drive which leads around to the rear and west of the property where there is ample gravelled turning and parking space. To the front and the east there is an area of walled garden bounded by a fine old brick wall to the south. This can also approached by French windows from the sitting room/bedroom 4. To the rear and west of the property is a large walled garden, laid to lawn with a gravelled terraced seating area, facing south and west and again, approached by French windows from the orangery extension to the kitchen. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with some landscaping to be completed. The gardens and grounds in all extend to about 0.22 of an acre.
