Property Description

The Property

4 Old Post Office Court is a beautifully presented, modern home, which blends comfortably into its pretty Norfolk village surroundings.  This generously proportioned property features four double bedrooms with a versatile downstairs bedroom suite, open plan kitchen dining room, home office, large sitting room and enclosed walled garden with off-street parking.

The house lends itself to being either a main residence or a second home, with scope to generate a second income as a holiday let when not being used by family and friends.

On entering the house there is a good sized hallway, giving an immediate sense of the space offered here.  The open plan kitchen diner is bright and welcoming, featuring a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, window to the front and French doors out to the rear garden.  The home office, originally used as a dining room, is to the front of the house and offers space and light to comfortably work from home for one or two people.  Adjacent to the home office is a good sized downstairs loo and next to this is the utility room with a door out to the side of the house.

The sitting room is a very generous room, flooded with light from a wide set of French doors and window overlooking the rear garden and with a wood burning stove to cosy up with in the winter months. 

Off the sitting room is the downstairs bedroom suite.  Another very generously sized room with en suite shower room and walk in wardrobe and a window looking out to the rear garden. This room is particularly versatile, lending itself to being both master bedroom or guest accommodation.

Upstairs are three further bedrooms, arranged off a central landing, two larger doubles and one smaller double bedroom, airing cupboard and large family bathroom with separate bath and shower enclosure.


The garden wraps around the house with gates to both the front and side entrances.  The main part of the garden is walled and enclosed and offers a perfect space for relaxing and al fresco dining whilst still retaining a low maintenance appeal.  To one side of the house is the side door to the utility room and log store.  To the other the garden leads around to the main patio to the rear with access via French doors to much of the ground floor.  

There is a lane leading to the rear of the house where there is a single garage with parking in front and access to the rear garden via a gate.
