A family home with room to roam
If you’re searching for a modern family home in a village location, finished to an exceptional standard and with stunning open-plan living accommodation, The Firs House could be the perfect property for you.
Set at the edge of the Breckland village of Mileham, in private grounds of approximately three-quarters of an acre, The Firs House was completed in 2021 by the current owner and has been built to their own exacting specification with outstanding attention to detail. The home that they have created offers stunning contemporary accommodation behind its traditionally styled façade, extending to almost 3,000 sq ft of luxurious living space.
The property is hidden from the roadway by mature hedging, and from the moment you pull into the expansive shingled driveway you appreciate the feeling of seclusion and relaxation that this home offers. There’s parking for up to seven vehicles here, and a detached single garage, so plenty of space for family and friends to visit. And if you choose to make The Firs House your next home, they’ll be visiting often, as this is a house built with entertaining in mind.
Stepping inside the property, a welcoming entrance hall leads in to the open-plan living area, past the study, ground floor cloakroom and a generous ground floor double bedroom which is perfect for overnight guests. An oak staircase leads up to the first-floor accommodation, but what draws you in to this home are the views through the ground floor.
Walking through the property, a warm and cosy snug provides the first of many reception areas. A double sided fireplace is home to a substantial wood burner which warms the living area in the colder months, although with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and well insulated walls, you may find yourself using it more for aesthetic appeal. French doors lead out to the sandstone patio which wraps around the side and rear elevations and overlook the private mature woodland which forms the eastern part of the grounds.
Past the fireplace, a larger seating area creates a more substantial lounge, currently arranged with L-shaped seating to take full advantage of the other side of the wood burner and the generous TV space, whilst to one side a door leads through to a further large reception room, perfect as a games room, cinema room or a more secluded lounge area if you prefer.
At the rear of the ground floor, a generous kitchen dining area features a well-equipped and contemporary kitchen with granite worktops, integrated appliances and a large central island with breakfast bar seating and integrated hob. This space is bright and airy thanks to a large roof lantern directly above the dining table, two sets of bifold doors which frame the exterior views perfectly, and floor length windows which complement their larger counterparts.
Laundry appliances and further storage can be found in the adjoining utility room, which is finished to the same high standards as the kitchen, with matching units and granite worktop.
The feeling of space and substance continues on the first floor, where three double bedrooms are located. The principal suite is particularly generous, with a dual-aspect bedroom, separate dressing room and luxurious en-suite bathroom, complete with double shower enclosure and a freestanding bath. The second bedroom also benefits from an equally well-appointed en-suite shower room, whilst a family bathroom completes the accommodation.
Outside, the rear garden is a delightful private space, with plenty of scope for outdoor entertaining in the summer months and views over farmland to the rear. This is a home where the countryside is truly on your doorstep, with a network of public footpaths passing close to the property and your own private woodland within the grounds, which extend to approximately three-quarters of an acre (stms). Young explorers will love adventuring here!
Should you wish to venture further afield, Mileham itself has a general store with post office, a church and a garden nursery. The village is well-located for the market towns of Swaffham, Dereham and Fakenham, with Norwich and King’s Lynn also easily accessible by road.
We think that The Firs House is a wonderful property, perfect as a family home in the heart of Norfolk, and we can’t wait to show you around. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the incredible accommodation and attention to detail on offer, and is exclusively available through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists.
