Property Description

The Property

Thistle House is a charming example of a terraced Victorian Townhouse, packed with period features and a lovely contemporary open plan living space with kitchen / diner / snug to the rear; additional sitting room to the front, 3 bedrooms over two floors, a fabulous family bathroom and with the option for a home office / 4th bedroom.  There is a lovely quiet back garden, great utility space in the converted outbuilding and off-street parking to the front.  All within easy walking distance of the centre of town & all its amenities and both the Prep & Senior schools for Gresham's, the renowned independent boarding/day school in Holt.

On entering through the front door there is a classic hallway with the sitting room off, featuring a lovely deep bay window, wood burning stove and original recessed shelving on either side.  There is great ceiling height throughout this property which lends a great feeling of space throughout.  At the end of the hallway is the contemporary kitchen / dining room, downstairs WC with built in storage cupboards & wash hand basin and snug.  This is the heart of the house, with the modern kitchen and open plan dining space leading into the cosy snug featuring an open fire, perfect for snuggling up in the winter.  These rooms together enable connected living but with defined spaces, so you can cook, eat and relax within easy reach.  

On the first floor are two lovely double bedrooms.  The master bedroom to the front of the house has a range of built in wardrobes and feature cast iron fireplace and the second good sized double is to the rear.  The family bathroom is exemplary; it is spacious and beautifully finished, with a large shower enclosure and funky freestanding bath and a window to the rear.  Also on this floor is the home office / bedroom 4; perfect as a small single or nursery but currently a bright and private home office with a window to the front.

Up again to the second floor is the final bedroom.  Another large room with a very interesting chimney breast, full of light from the Velux window with fitted wardobes and access to the eaves storage.


To the front of Thistle House is a gravelled driveway with parking for one large family car or two small cars.  Another car could be parked on the road to the front.

To the rear, just beyond the glazed doors from the dining area is an outbuilding, cleverly converted to act a utility space.  A really good sized space with sink, built in units and worktop giving plenty of workspace and space for freezers.

Beyond the utility space is a really good sized back garden with lawn and mature planting throughout, a summer house and paved area for outside dining furniture and BBQ, to enjoy al fresco dining in the warmer months.
