Pendefords are delighted to present this exceptional four-bedroom home set on a corner plot in a private cul-de-sac in the popular village of Badersfield. This substantial home has been extended and improved by the current owners, and offers spacious and flexible accommodation in a plot of approximately 1/3 acre.
Formerly the accommodation area of RAF Coltishall, which ceased operations in 2006, the village of Badersfield now forms part of a conservation area and is home to a thriving community.
Constructed in the 1940s, this four-bedroom detached property displays a distinct architectural style typical of the period which incorporates large windows, high ceilings and generous proportions throughout.
Occupying a corner plot in a private cul-de-sac of similar properties, this home creates an impression of quality and substance the moment you arrive, with a well-kept lawn extending around the property and a backdrop of mature trees lining the road. A wide driveway provides off-road parking for two vehicles, and leads to a single garage, whilst a pathway leads from the road up to the original front door, which the current owners retained when they renovated this home.
In doing so, they were able to keep the impressive proportions of this home intact. The spacious entrance hall, with its high ceilings, wide doorways and substantial wooden staircase makes a great first impression and hints at the scale of the accommodation which is on offer.
Walking past the ground floor shower room which features luxurious travertine tiling, and past a capacious understairs storage cupboard, we enter the living room, a fabulous dual aspect room which, with its open fire and feature bay door leading on to the rear garden, is perfect all year round.
The kitchen and family room is a truly impressive space, and for many people, its where they will spend most of their time in this home. This room is over 9 metres long, and with an abundance of fitted storage, two high-level ovens and a large central island with quartz worktops and induction hob, it’s a fantastic place to prepare and enjoy great food in great company. Not least because of the bright family room area, with its huge roof lantern and triple aspect views. This room also has French doors leading out to the ample rear garden, which has plenty of space to sit and enjoy the sunshine, or play games on the generous lawn.
Moving up to the first floor, the sense of scale and space continues, with four bedrooms arranged along a 9.5 metre hallway which is brightly lit through front-facing sash windows.
At one end of the property, the master bedroom is a dual-aspect haven, with a feature bay echoing that of the living room below. Two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom complete the sleeping accommodation on this floor, and all of these are immaculately presented.
The bathroom on this floor is a luxurious space, with its raised roll-top bath, corner shower cubicle and delightful mosaic tiling.
The village of Badersfield offers a post office and convenience store, public house and church, and is approximately three miles North of the riverside village of Coltishall, with its wide range of amenities including butcher, bakery, greengrocer, pharmacy and medical centre, along with a choice of well-regarded public houses and cafés.
Equidistant between the market towns of Aylsham and North Walsham, which both offer independent retail outlets and supermarket shopping, Badersfield is also only 12 miles from the cosmopolitan City of Norwich, and 12 miles from the open skies and wide beaches of the North Norfolk coast, making it an ideal base from which to explore all that Norfolk has to offer. And with plenty of local walks on the doorstep accessible through a network of quiet country lanes, exploration can start very close to home.
With over 180m2 of beautifully-finished accommodation on offer, and with private gardens of approximately 1/3 acre, this substantial home is sure to be popular and early viewing is highly recommended.
