We’re delighted to present this charming four-bedroom detached house in the sought-after Norfolk village of Corpusty.
Occupying an elevated and private plot close to village amenities, Lancaster House offers spacious and flexible family living in the heart of North Norfolk.
Lancaster House is believed to date back to the 1930s and sits in a prime position in this desirable Norfolk village. Screened from view behind tall mature hedging, this substantial home stands centrally in a plot of approximately 0.23 acres, with good-sized gardens front and rear.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway, which leads to a generous parking area directly outside the house, and which also gives access to the detached garage. There’s a delightful lawned area to the front of the property too – with a small patio directly outside the living room perfectly positioned to catch the late morning sun.
As you enter the property, walking past the stairs to the first floor, a warm welcome awaits in the dining room. Not only is this a bright and sunny dual aspect room with windows to the southeast and southwest, it’s also home to an electric AGA range, which is a wonderfully warming focal point to the room. The house flows on into the kitchen breakfast room, which is another bright dual aspect space and perfect for sociable cooking and entertaining.
The living room is next – another dual aspect room, this time with French doors front and rear. Whilst the front set lead onto that patio we mentioned earlier, the ones to the rear give access to a garden room currently used as a study, with glazing on three sides and panoramic views of the rear garden. This is a great place to work, with plenty of inspiration in view. And when you want to relax, head outside to the gardens, take a seat on the extensive patio and enjoy the calm of this property’s village location.
This home is not just about the space – it’s also full of character. Whether it’s the subtle features, such as the traditional pamment tiles in the entrance porch and the timber door leading to the understairs pantry, or the more obvious ones such as the brick fireplace with a woodburner in the living room, there’s plenty of interest to catch the eye.
Take the principal bedroom on the first floor. The decorative cast iron fireplace is apparent as soon as you step into the room, flanked by two windows which admit plenty of natural light. Turn around and you’ll notice the hexagonal timber door leading to the en-suite shower room. It might take you a moment to spot the way the fitted storage units form a generous window seat in the dual-aspect corner of the room, which gives an elevated view of the gardens beyond. With two further double bedrooms and a single bedroom on this floor, plus a family bathroom, this is sure to prove a desirable property in a very popular location.
The village of Corpusty is about 14 miles north of Norwich – roughly equidistant between the North Norfolk market towns of Aylsham and Holt. Local amenities include a primary school, village shop and public house, with your choice of supermarkets, independent stores and other amenities on offer in Holt or Aylsham.
There are plenty of quiet lanes for walking or cycling nearby, and days out are easy to plan with the National Trust estates of Blickling and Felbrigg a short distance away, and the wide skies and expansive beaches of the North Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just 10 miles from the property.
