A prestigious five bedroom Georgian Rectory in a pretty mid-Norfolk village, occupying grounds of around 3 acres. An additional two bedroom Coach House annexe, walled garden and other outbuildings. Sowerbys are delighted to offer this prominent Georgian residence, privately positioned at the very heart of the pretty mid-Norfolk village of Great Dunham. Dating back to around 1750, The Old Rectory is a fine example of a traditional clergy house from the period with an array of architectural features and impressive proportions, which were further enhanced by a later Victorian extension. The property is abound with character features, including original fireplaces in most rooms and sash windows with their authentic shutters. The striking reception hall gives an early indication as to the scale and character on offer, with a superb oak staircase and an original fireplace. Along the south wall, the dining room, bay-fronted sitting room and library look out to the formal lawns, with the 24ft drawing room and recently updated kitchen/breakfast room completing the main ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two if which are en-suite, arranged around the galleried landing. In total, the internal floor space extends to around 4,300 square-feet. As with all older properties, there is an-going programme of maintenance at The Old Rectory. Notably, the current owners have recently undertaken the paintwork of the external woodwork throughout the main house, as well as replacing both en-suite bathrooms with luxurious new fittings.
In addition to the main house, there is also a recently constructed two bedroom coach house within the grounds which provides greater flexibility within the overall accommodation, and also has permission to be used as a holiday let. The Coach House is located across the yard from the stable block to the west of the main house, with pleasant views over the formal lawns to the south. The grounds extend to around 3 acres (sts) and include a delightful walled garden, formal lawns, a paddock and woodland area. Adjoining farmland along much of the perimeter, the site enjoys a pleasant rural atmosphere with countryside views; there is also an unavoidable sense of longevity as you walk around the grounds with many of the trees being as old, if not older, than the house itself.
