A character home in a prime location

Occupying an elevated position in the sought-after Bure Way area of Aylsham, this three-bedroom detached home was originally constructed in the 1930s and has been extended and updated to create a flexible family home whilst retaining many original character features.

The property is set back from the road behind mature trees and hedging, and is approached over a gravel driveway which provides ample off-road parking and access to the detached garage at the side of the house. A storm porch with oak beams shelters the original timber entrance door from the elements, whilst large double-sash windows with timber mullions enhance the traditional façade of this home and admit plenty of natural light to the rooms at the front of the property.


The entrance hall retains the original clay tile flooring with mosaic borders, and all the principal rooms have the high ceilings and picture rails typical of the period. To one side of the hallway is a generous living room with a wonderful wood-burning stove and French doors to the garden, with a recent garden room providing flexible family living space. 


To the other side of the property, a spacious open-plan kitchen and dining room combines modern living with traditional features, including a cast iron open fireplace in the dining area, and an original inset bread oven in the kitchen, with a utility room beyond the kitchen and a ground floor cloakroom completing the accommodation on this floor. 

Three bedrooms and a family bathroom radiate from the first floor landing, with the dual aspect master bedroom benefiting from views front and rear over the gardens which surround the property. Those gardens are predominantly lawned, with mature trees and shrubs, and a generous patio area to the side of the property which is partially sheltered by an oak-framed pergola with a pantile roof, providing flexible outdoor space whatever the weather – ideal for entertaining in the British summer!

Detached properties of this style are highly prized in Aylsham, and this house is sure to prove popular with a wide range of buyers seeking a character home in a very desirable part of a thriving Norfolk market town.

Early viewing is recommended to fully appreciate the opportunity that this property offers, and is exclusively available through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists.

Aylsham – a thriving market town

Aylsham is a thriving Norfolk market town approximately 12 miles North of the City of Norwich, steeped in history and home to some of the finest architecture in the region. Aylsham has been home to a regular market since the 13th Century, and the town has grown up around its well-preserved open-air market place and the imposing church which dates back to the same period. 

From the Jacobean grandeur of Blickling Hall, to the Victorian Town Hall and many individual properties in between, Aylsham is one of our favourite Norfolk locations, and one which has something for everyone.

There’s a wide range of local independent businesses lining Aylsham’s historic streets, with bakeries, butchers and tea rooms rubbing shoulders with supermarkets, convenience stores and cafes. There are plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants, a medical centre, vets, community centres and pharmacy, well-regarded primary and secondary schools, and a host of opportunities for work and play.

Aylsham is located on the River Bure, popular with canoeists and paddleboarders, and is at the junction of the Bure Valley Path and Marriott’s way – providing over 35 miles of traffic-free cycling and walking routes between Wroxham at one end and Norwich at the other.

With the wide skies and expansive beaches of the Norfolk Coast only ten miles away, six miles to the Norfolk Broads National Park, and Norwich International Airport only nine miles distant, relaxing escapes are never far from your doorstep – although there’s so much on offer in Aylsham, you may not want to leave!
