If you love unique character homes which are steeped in local history, rich in original period features but equally are looking for a good sized home and garden, which has been fully restored to the exacting Grade II standards.

Every home has a story but perhaps not as rich as this thatched cottage. The property is believed to date back to the 17th Century and has been a landmark building in Dereham's past. The first record was recorded as 'The Jolly Farmers' public house which was shown for the first time on the Mitford Register taken in September 1794 and stayed a public house until 1954.

After the public house had shut, it underwent a program of refurbishment and was turned into a residential property. It is possible that this could be to be the oldest residential Thatched Property in Dereham. Many years and a few sales later, the property was purchased by the current owners who instantly fell in love with its individual charm and character. This was despite them knowing they would need to spend a vast amount of time, money and love to restore it back to its full former glory, but with all of the convenience of modern living. The results they have achieved are exemplary, finely blending the old with the new.

Offered with spacious accommodation, two reception rooms, three lobby's, kitchen, utility room, two ground floor bedrooms, ground floor shower room, two staircases providing private access to two upstairs bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom. Private drive for 3 cars, which could be extended discreetly into the 80ft rear garden, which has a wood store and a high quality insulated Timber framed workshop with full power, lighting and UPVC doors and windows.

The entrance door is situated to the front of the home which provides access to both of the main reception rooms, a stunning double aspect garden facing 18ft x 16ft sitting room and a 16ft x 14ft dining room, which has a part open aspect to the kitchen and a separate utility room. Both reception rooms have their own individual staircases, which provide access to both upstairs bedrooms. These reception rooms are rich in original character with exposed Oak beams, Lintels exposed brickwork, pamment flooring and newly fitted working cast iron woodburners, which have been inset into both inglenook fireplaces. The kitchen has been fitted with handmade cabinets with integrated high end appliances which complement the style of the stained Oak, which is prevelant throughout the property. A further lobby provides access to the rear garden and also a 10ft study/guest bedroom. To the rear of the ground floor is a further lobby which links into a a further bedroom, a re-fitted period style shower room and a private driveway to the rear of the home.

The Master bedroom has direct access to a newly and beautifully appointed heritage style suite completed by a free standing slipper bath with claw feet. Bedroom Two has its own re-fitted en-suite cloakroom.
