There is no denying that Rosecroft is a very special home. Found at the entrance to Mill Road, one of the most sought-after locations in the Norfolk town of Loddon, Rosecroft is an imposing early Edwardian villa which sits beautifully in well-proportioned grounds and which offers extensive accommodation over two floors.
Rosecroft is one of a pair of semi-detached properties constructed between 1901 and 1905 by a local builder, and this substantial property has an equally substantial history which is hinted at by the original character features found throughout the building. Stepping through the glorious stained glass entry and onto pitch pine parquet flooring, a wealth of period detail is evident in the high skirting, elevated panelled ceilings, decorative cornicing and stripped panel doors throughout the building.
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.
This is very much a family home, with four double and one single bedrooms on the first floor, accessed by not one, but two staircases which have their own stories to tell. The current owners have also added their own chapters to the story of this home in the four decades that they have lived here, converting the former butler’s pantry into a ground floor shower room, and adding an incredible garden room to create a light and airy space which maximises the views of the beautifully-maintained garden all year round, thanks to its underfloor heating.
In a home filled with wonderful features, the gardens are possibly the most wonderful feature of all. South facing, they benefit from uninterrupted sunlight and have an open aspect across trees towards Loddon which give a real sense of space and seclusion.
This extensive property also offers a large double garage with an attached workshop, which has light, power, plumbing and drainage already installed, and which has potential to add even more space to this already spacious home by conversion to a self-contained annexe subject to planning.
Loddon is a small town approximately twelve miles south of Norwich, centered around the 15th century Holy Trinity Church, and which has retained considerable charm and character throughout its history. Lying on the river Chet, at the fringe of The Broads National Park, Loddon has a vibrant community feeling and offers a wealth of amenities including local shops, Post Office, doctors’ surgery, dentist, library, local pubs, cafés and a bistro.
Loddon is home to an infant and nursery school, junior school and Hobart High School, rated Good by Ofsted, and is two miles from Langley Senior School, an independent boarding and day school.
Loddon offers good transport links, with the Cathedral City of Norwich only 30 minutes away by road. Central London can be reached in 90 minutes by rail from Norwich, and the city also benefits from a small international airport ideal for business or leisure travel. Loddon itself is only 12 miles from the coast, and with the River Chet passing within walking distance of Rosecroft, there is easy access to the network of inland waterways on The Broads. Loddon Staithe and the nearby marinas provide opportunity for mooring, whilst the quieter stretches upriver of the now-disused mill present scope for exploration by canoe and paddleboard.
