A family home with room to grow

If you’re searching for a generous family home in a secluded location on the outskirts of Norwich, close to excellent schooling and with the potential for further development, this individual detached house in Taverham could be the perfect property for you.

Set at the end of a private roadway in a sought-after residential cul-de sac, this substantial three-storey detached home extends to over 4,000 square feet – including four first-floor bedrooms, generous and flexible ground floor accommodation, and a basement area offering two further bedrooms and with scope to develop into a self-contained annexe subject to planning permission.

With a private, south facing garden which backs onto woodland, ample off-road parking and a double garage, and even a dedicated entertainment room, this property has something to offer every member of the family, and viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the scope of this individual home.

 

The property sits behind tall established hedging with a generous brick weave driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles, and with a double garage providing additional secure parking.

The entrance hall is a welcoming space, with a generous storage cupboard to conceal coats and shoes, and with a staircase rising up to the first-floor accommodation above. Off the entrance hall, the spacious living room is dual aspect, with a large bow window to the front and views across the south-facing back garden to the rear. The focal point of the room is the impressive brick-built inglenook fireplace which houses a woodburner – perfect for the cooler winter months.

At the front of the property is a study which provides essential, dedicated space to work from home, whilst to the rear, a wonderfully bright garden room gives access onto the rear terrace, which extends the full width of the house and which looks down onto the neatly maintained and private rear gardens.

The well-equipped kitchen offers ample space to accommodate the demands of a large family, with an open-plan dining room perfect for entertaining, with a separate utility room and ground floor cloakroom nearby.

 

On the first floor are four well-proportioned bedrooms, and even the smallest of these will accommodate a double bed. Two of the larger bedrooms have en-suites, with the principal bedroom benefitting from a newly-fitted bathroom suite with freestanding bath and separate shower cubicle. A family bathroom completes the accommodation here.

Built on a sloping plot, this home takes full advantage of its location with a further basement level which offers huge potential. The current owners admit that they don’t utilise this space to its fullest, with only one of the two south-facing bedrooms in use as a gym at present. There’s also a full bathroom on this level, as well as a cavernous entertainment room and further store room accessible from the rear garden. This space is perfect for the larger family, or with the appropriate planning permission, it’s ideal for conversion into self-contained annexe accommodation with its own access and garden views.

 

The rear gardens are private, south-facing and peaceful, backing onto established woodland, and this home offers a wonderful escape with a feeling of tranquillity and relaxation, whilst still being perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all the amenities available in this popular Norfolk village.

 

Taverham is only six miles from the City of Norwich, with easy access to both the A47 and Northern Distributor Roads for cross-country travel. Almost on the doorstep, the 100-acre Taverham Mill nature reserve provides ample opportunity for outdoor leisure, whilst the 26-mile Marriott’s Way runs through the village and provides a popular bridleway link between Norwich and the market town of Aylsham – ideal for walkers, runners and riders.

 

The village benefits from a supermarket, medical centre, pharmacy, library, golf club and local public house, whilst there is a wide choice of schooling at all levels including the ISI Excellent-rated Langley Prep School, and OFSTED Good rated Taverham High and Sixth Form.
