In Brief

A rarely available and carefully extended six bedroom detached home situated in a popular Broadland village to the East of Norwich. This property boasts fantastic flexible accommodation over three floors, with open-plan family living spaces and private reception rooms on the ground floor, six generous bedrooms, two shower rooms and a sizeable family bathroom making this the perfect home for a large or multi-generational family.


With its far-reaching woodland views, secluded position and peaceful outlook, you could be forgiven for thinking that this beautiful family home is located in an isolated part of Norfolk with very little around it. Yet this six-bedroom property lies at the edge of one of Broadland’s most popular villages – the thriving community of Little Plumstead. On the outskirts of the village, yet within close proximity of the school, the church and a proposed community-led store and café, this Georgian-style property offers impressive accommodation over three floors, with flexibility and family life at the heart of its design. 

On the ground floor, the combination of open-plan family living space and separate reception rooms provides an adaptable environment which lends itself equally well to the needs of a growing family, an established household, or, an extended family group as there is potential for a ground floor bedroom. The first floor offers four good-sized bedrooms and a separate study area, which also offers potential for use as an occasional bedroom, adding further flexibility to the layout. 

With two more bedrooms on the second floor, this extensive and inviting home has enough space for everyone, and yet retains the cosy family feel that many larger properties lack. Morning and evening routines can flow freely thanks to the two shower rooms and separate family bathroom, which help everyone to find the time and space that they need to get ready without feeling rushed, and mealtimes are a pleasure with the spacious kitchen / dining room and family room demonstrating all the benefits of open plan living. 

Properties such as this rarely come onto the market, and in our opinion this individual home, which is unique in the village, provides the ideal blend of spacious accommodation and rural living, with the convenience of village community life.
