5 Bedroom Farm House For Sale
Located towards the outskirts of the village of Tibenham, the property enjoys a lovely rural but yet not isolated situation set back off a small country lane shared with similar period and attractive properties. Tibenham is found within the idyllic south Norfolk rural countryside and over the years the village has proved to have been a popular and sought after location still having the benefit of a public house, church and village hall. An extensive and diverse range of many day to day amenities and facilities can be found within the historic market town of Diss lying just 7 miles to the south with there being the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London Liverpool Street and Norwich. The village of Long Stratton is also within close proximity found 6 miles to the north east, whilst Wymondham and Attleborough are located within 10 miles to the north west.
The property comprises a most impressive Grade II listed five bedroom farmhouse being of massive oak timber frame construction with colour wash rendered elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof, heated by an oil fired central heating boiler via radiators. The dwelling is believed to date back to the early 1600s and offers immense character and charm throughout having many exposed and revealed period features on show. Within more recent times the property has been the subject of a significant refurbishment programme having been upgraded and enhanced throughout to a particularly high specification and being presented in a most excellent decorative order. In essence the accommodation is in the regions of 3,500 sq ft with well proportioned rooms giving versatile living space. In latter years there had been planning permission for the tithe barn to be converted into separate annexe accommodation giving dual living and lends itself still for the possibilities of being done should it be required/desired.
