A FORMER FARMHOUSE and now an ENVIABLE ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY, resting on a GENEROUS PLOT which is discretely set towards the end of a SECLUDED LANE on the rural outskirts of the PICTURESQUE RIVERSIDE VILLAGE of Potter Heigham – sometimes referred to as a ‘Gateway to the wildest, quietest part of the NORFOLK BROADS’ and which lies twenty miles to the north east of the county’s HISTORIC CITY OF NORWICH.
The once renowned pottery making village sits atop the northern bank of the RIVER BURE with navigational access to the HICKLING BROADS, HEIGHAM SOUNDS and the HORSEY MARE waters. Life off the water in this riverside village also has an abundance of recreational attractions with two NATIONAL NATURE RESERVES, the long-distance WEAVER WAY walk as well as the near SANDY BEACH of Horsey; where seals are renowned for taking sanctuary in numbers.
Chapel Farm is set back from a rural NO-THROUGH LANE and is largely screened behind a mature high hedge. The property is approached through a timber five-bar gate, crossing over a shingle expanse which provides AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING and access to a small rustic, TWO STORY THATCHED BARN, presently used as a GARAGE and WORKSHOP. To the nearside of Chapel Farm a pathway leads to the property’s main entrance, which overlooks a mature SIDE LAWN GARDEN. A private timber gate grants rear access to a GENEROUS LAWN GARDEN with an accompanying POND and for those in search of the GOOD LIFE a variety of timber outbuildings, a screened VEGETABLE GARDEN and room for ranging chickens.
This fondly maintained home enters into a welcoming entrance hallway with doors into a warming and SPACIOUS LOUNGE, with separate access into a study and rear hall, which in turn grants access to a shower room, the side terrace and the utility area. From the entrance hallway a further door opens into the social heart of this period home and a RANGING FARMHOUSE KITCHEN which looks out over its lot to the rear. From the kitchen, which connects with the utility area, a door leads into a separate dining room with double doors opening to the rear garden. To the first floor a significant landing accommodates a wealth of fitted wardrobes and access to FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a family bath and shower room.
Life at Chapel Farm is further complemented by its RURAL SETTING; around a mile to the village’s AMENITIES, less than twenty minutes to the SANDY COASTAL SHORELINE and the historic city of NORWICH is around twenty miles, passing some of the most PICTURESQUE LANDSCAPES and waterways of the renowned NORFOLK BROADS.
