If you’re searching for a home in the country with a contemporary twist, this stunning five-bedroom detached house in Great Plumstead could be exactly the property that you’re looking for.
When the current owners of Paddock View acquired their home in 2015, they knew that they’d discovered a property with the potential for perfection, and set about transforming this spacious five-bedroom house into a stunning countryside retreat.
The majority of this three storey detached home has been carefully renovated, and this immaculately-presented residence has a clean and contemporary finish throughout, providing the owners with a wonderfully nurturing environment in which to raise their family.
From the welcoming and spacious entrance hall with its luxury herringbone vinyl flooring, past the ground floor study and into the living room, it’s clear that this is a home where attention to detail is paramount. The contemporary feature fireplace has the potential to be re-opened to fit a woodburner if required, the niche lights in the walls add a delightful dimension to the room, and the warm natural tones of the engineered oak flooring lead seamlessly into the dining room at the rear of the property, with French doors opening onto the garden.
Step through the dining room and into the kitchen, and it’s clear that this is a part of the house where you’ll want to spend a great deal of time.
The current owners extended the property as part of their renovations, and created this stunning vaulted space with a contemporary, well-equipped kitchen and dining area with mesmerising views of the rear garden and paddocks beyond through the floor-to-ceiling glazed wall and the bifold doors which open onto a spacious patio.
A separate utility room houses laundry facilities and provides access to the integral garage.
The first floor is home to four of this property’s five bedrooms. The master bedroom at the front of the property benefits from an en-suite shower room, as does the second bedroom at the rear of the house, and there’s a further double bedroom and a single bedroom to be found here, along with a family bathroom.
On the second floor, the entire area has been given over to a superb top-floor bedroom, which is dual aspect with countryside views to the front and the rear.
The vaulted ceilings of this room also provide ample eaves storage space, and this room has potential for a multitude of uses if you don’t wish to use it as bedroom – the current owners have created a fabulous family space with sofas and home cinema projector!
In the summer months, it’s likely that you’ll be doing most of your entertaining outside, and the back garden, with porcelain paved patio and two timber deck areas, is a wonderful space to socialise and soak up the views, and there’s plenty of parking for visitors to the front of the property, with a generous low-maintenance shingled driveway.
The twin villages of Great and Little Plumstead are home to a primary school, community cafe, two churches and a public house, whilst secondary schooling and further amenities can be found in Norwich to the west or Wroxham to the north. This beautiful home is well-located on the outskirts of Great Plumstead, with easy access to both the A47 and the Northern Distributor Road, and is approximately five miles from the city of Norwich by road.
This exceptional property is sure to prove popular, and viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the wealth of accommodation on offer in this contemporary countryside home
