About this property

    Spring House is a landmark house within the town of Thetford, enjoying a wonderfully private position set behind a high brick wall on the banks of the River Thet. The house is late Georgian and Grade II listed, with attractive main façade of gault brick with French and sash windows. There is plenty of further period detail, internally and externally including high skirting boards, fireplaces and elegant rooms typical of the period. There is approximately 4,100 square feet of living space, with conventional light and spacious living space. The house has a functional kitchen and some fitted bathrooms but now requires refurbishment throughout, to restore the house to it's former
    glory. The grounds are accessed via wooden panelled gates set within a high brick and flint wall, with distinctive stone
    pineapple finnials. The driveway and turning area provides private parking for many cars. The gardens are mainly to the west and east of the house, laid to lawn with a tributary of the river running along the northern boundary. Within the grounds is a former swimming pool. The boundary is marked by some fine specimen trees including oak and beech.
