About this property

  • 3 Littlewood is a modern eco-efficient home built in 2010 by Abel Homes to a high standard. Featuring open plan accommodation and occupying a tranquil woodland setting in the highly popular village of Drayton to the North West of Norwich, the property is a must see family home. With its emphasis on eco credentials the property benefits from an air-source heat pump which heats the ground floor via underfloor heating and radiators on the first floor. A whole house heat recovery system maintains a fresh atmosphere throughout the home, re-distributing warm air from the bathrooms and kitchen, via a heat exchanger to the living room and bedrooms. Solar thermal panels aid the hot water system further boosting the efficiency of the house. A wood burner is also installed in the living room, with the heat redistributed around the house by the ventilation system.

    The current owners have enhanced the property with a new kitchen in their tenure and the family orientated layout provides a spacious living/dining area, a home office which could also make for an ideal play room. A useful utility room and ground floor cloakroom also feature. Four bedrooms to the first floor including the principal bedroom with an en suite and a family bathroom to service the remaining rooms allow for comfortable family living.

    The development is set down a long, private and secluded drive within the popular and supportive Littlewood community. The property itself is approached via a brick weave driveway providing space for a couple of vehicles and leads to the double garage with electric up and over door. Benefitting from a good deal of natural privacy thanks to its woodland setting the house sits on a generous plot of about 0.31 acres. The owners have installed a home office within the garden which is perfectly placed to then work from home or perhaps could be utilised as a gym. Also another separate wooden cabin also hosts the luxurious swim spa which will be included in the sale. Of a particular note is the exclusive access into the private woods that the development enjoys.

    The majority of the garden is laid to lawn with a patio terrace in place for entertaining.

The woodland setting is clearly a peaceful retreat and so wonderfully hidden within the centre of the village.
