Beautiful Views Surrounding The Property
A Must View Home
Laurel Lodge is a wonderful and substantial family home dating from the 1920's with modern extensions and stunning views over the Norfolk Countryside.
Set well back behind its sweeping gravel driveway Laurel Lodge has substantial proportions throughout and combines the perfect blend of modern living and traditional features.
Much of the design of this superb home has been collaborated with its current vendors who, over 20 years designed a home that could enjoyed the beautiful changing seasons and its superb views over the Waveney Valley.
Laurel Lodge has an absolute abundance of entertaining space with sweeping garden views coupled with a 'heart of the home' Kitchen/Breakfast Room. From the attractive Reception Hallway a panelled door leads through to a stunning Sitting Room housing the grand piano and French doors through to the Dining Terrace with its views towards the formal gardens. The separate Dining Room is also extended to be able to host extravagant dinner parties, as well as a further downstairs Reception Room currently a substantial Office but designed with a full Ensuite Bathroom so downstairs living is a definite possibility.
The first floor has a total of Five Bedrooms with the Master Bedroom Suite, again grand in its proportions. The room is all about the outstanding views whilst enjoying an Ensuite Bathroom. There is then three further doubles, one which has Ensuite and also interlinks to the Fifth Bedroom which could create a further Dressing Room to offer two bedroom suites.
The property stands on a excellent plot of three acres (STS) that has been landscaped by the present vendors. This beautiful garden has various 'rooms'. From the Living Room and Terrace there is a formal garden with hedge boundaries, mature trees and beyond this is an Orchard. To the side of the Orchard is the solar garden with a vast array of panels creating excellent green energy for the home with battery storage. Uniquely there is also a show stopping 'Dell' which is a private and meditative area , substantial in its size but with a truly natural feel. The gardens wrap all around the property with a sweeping drive with five bar gate, all enclosed by hedging.
There is a detached double garage plus further storage rooms.
Laurel Lodge has been a much loved home since it was first created but it is now time for a new family to enjoy the extraordinary setting .
