Stable Cottage is a charming brick and flint, three bedroom, semi-detached property situated just on the outskirts of Letheringsett on a quiet lane. It is an upside down house, with an impressive vaulted, beamed living room upstairs and three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen and dining room all downstairs.
The cottage is an ideal main residence or second home and forms part of the exclusive Home Farm development of eight unique properties sharing beautifully manicured gardens with a car park for guests and with it's own private garage on site. The owners of these cottages benefit from a private access onto the Bayfield estate from the bridge over the Glaven River to the rear of the site and to beautiful walks on the permissive footpaths along the river and across parts of the estate.
Stable Cottage itself was the original stable building and is arranged with the three double bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom in the single storey part of the building, with the kitchen and dining room downstairs in the two storey part. The kitchen has a door out to a courtyard area and the dining room has a door out to the lawned garden. Two of the bedrooms also have doors out to the garden and all three have windows overlooking the pretty garden. The beamed sitting room is accessed up the spiral staircase and is a great space to relax and unwind with triple aspect windows. The large window which looks out over the fields and countryside beyond is South facing and the two windows overlooking Home Farm area East & West facing respectively; meaning that the room is flooded with light all day long.
Home Farm is in an idyllic rural setting and is made up of a development of eight original farm buildings. Converted to homes in around 1974, they share all the accessible outside space on the site. The gardens, driveways and parking area are managed by the Home Farm Residents Association (made up of all the owners) and are available for the use of all the residents.
Stable Cottage does have a private garage situated near to the entrance from Blakeney Road.
Stable Cottage is situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Glaven Valley Conservation Area. The local pub, The Kings Head, is just a 2 minute drive away and is perfect for a drink in the sunshine, lunch with friends or somewhere for the children to run around in the beautiful enclosed child friendly garden, all surrounded by beautiful parkland.
The Georgian Town of Holt is a 5 minute drive away and is renowned for its period buildings, boutique shopping and antique shops. You will also find plenty of every day amenities such a butcher, fishmonger, grocer, petrol station and so much more. The town is also home to Gresham Public School, educating boys and girls between 3 and 18 years of age.
On the outskirts of the town lies Holt Country Park, an area of more than 100 acres of woodland. With plenty of car parking, picnic areas, nature trails, an adventure playground for the children.
