Other nearby attractions include the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, the Sandringham, Holkham and Houghton Estates which are open to the public, and many good local pubs notably The Dabbling Duck at Great Massingham and The Rose & Crown in Harpley.
There are regular rail services to London King's Cross from both Downham Market and King's Lynn, and services to London Liverpool Street from Norwich.
Meadow House is a most impressive and individual new build home with charm and character, set in an unspoilt rural position with wonderful views over neighbouring meadows.
Occupying the site of former farm cottages, the house is constructed to a high standard with mellow red brick and Norfolk flint, under a pantile roof, built in the traditional Norfolk manner, using reclaimed bricks, lime rich mortar with tumbled brick gables and eaves dentil courses. Internally the use of stone flooring, reclaimed fire surround, fitted woodburner, the use of oak and detailed joinery adds character and warmth. This all blends seamlessly with modern living such as under floor heating throughout the ground floor, double glazed windows, bespoke deVOL kitchen with rangemaster and air source heat pump.
The accommodation is light and airy, with spacious rooms including the kitchen/dining room and sitting room both with French doors opening out to a south facing terrace, and four double bedrooms including a master bedroom with en-suite shower room with under floor heating. Other useful rooms include a utility, ground floor WC, study and family bathroom.
The property is approached over a gravelled drive, through a five bar wooden gate on a sliding mechanism, and onto a gravelled parking area adjoining the house and integral garage.
The house sits centrally within its grounds, which are mainly laid to lawn, with a large terrace to the south of the house, with a distinctive high brick and flint wall beyond this to an upper lawn. The boundary is post and railed with hedging.
