In Brief

Nestling between the villages of Scottow and Swanton Abbott, Scottow Row was originally constructed as accommodation for workers on the Scottow Hall estate. Mole’s Folly is one of the handful of character properties which may be found along this secluded country lane, with field views to the front aspect and mature woodland to the rear which create a true feeling of rural living.

The original part of the cottage dates back to the 1850s, and whilst the property began life as a two bedroom semi-detached cottage, Mole’s Folly has been extended and improved to provide a bright and welcoming country-style kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious lounge complete with woodburner, a formal dining room, music room, ground floor bathroom and shower room, an additional annexe kitchen and four bedrooms, with an en-suite bathroom in the master suite.

The original fireplaces have been retained throughout the majority of the rooms, and whilst those in the upstairs rooms are capped, the reception rooms on the ground floor can benefit from cosy open fires in the winter months.

Scottow Row lies approximately ten miles North of the Cathedral City of Norwich, roughly equidistant between the market towns of Aylsham and North Walsham, and the Broads capital of Wroxham, and eight miles from the picturesque Norfolk coast. The nearby village of Swanton Abbott is home to a public house and primary school, with further amenities to be found in the villages of Badersfield, Worstead and Coltishall, which are a short car journey from Mole’s Folly and its wonderfully rural location.

Although Mole’s Folly sits in quiet countryside, it is surprisingly well-connected, with good road transport links to Norwich and a railway station in the nearby village of Worstead, which provides connecting services through Norwich and then onward to London in 90 minutes. Norwich International Airport is approximately 20 minutes by car.

Set in generously-proportioned gardens which offer privacy and seclusion, this charming and characterful family home is further enhanced by the recent addition of a bespoke timber office, which provides year-round homeworking potential thanks to underfloor heating.

This truly individual property is exclusively marketed by Pendefords, and early viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this beautiful Norfolk home.
