This family home not only has kerb appeal but commands your attention to view. This beautiful family home offers generous accommodation set over three floors as follows:- Starting from entrance porch it simplyfeels like home! The reception hall welcomes you, with downstairs cloakroom, dining room, sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, family room and utility room. The first floor landing is spacious and leads onto the master suite, three bedrooms and the family bathroom. The second floor is a perfect fifth bedroom or a perfect room to just get away and relax with some of the most spectacular views over countryside this side of the city. The grounds extend to just under 0.5 acres (sts) and offer you one of Norwich's finest landscaped gardens. The front garden has the beautiful mature tree with the sweeping carriage driveway with plenty of parking. The driveway is also to one side which has power and light connected. Mainly laid to lawn with beautifully kept box hedging border. The side access leads to the breath taking multi tiered landscaped rear garden. So lets start at the top with the fabulous Regency balustrade sun terrace with impressive graceful piers topped with ball and base cappings which add a more dramatic aesthetic to the tiered garden at this level. As you use the side staircase to lead you down to the middle terrace there is a raised pond inset to the brick retaining capped wall with second level terrace then to the stunning and quintessentially English central staircase. You now reach the main garden which is mainly laid to lawn with the famous summerhouse where you could imagine R H Mottram writing and looking back at his stunning home. The summerhouse has power connected and has a floating deck to enjoy this wonderful part of the garden with mature trees and shrub borders. There is a further woodland area beyond the gap in the beach hedging to enjoy as a wilder part of the garden or to introduce the children to wildlife.
