PUBLISHED: 13:00 05 August 2017
Marrying modern design with traditional style, architect-designed Ashwell House is set in beautiful gardens and enjoys scenic views over Thorpe and the Yare Valley.
Currently on the market with William H Brown Select at a guide price of £700,000, the detached, four-bedroom house is located on Thunder Lane in Thorpe St Andrew, on the eastern outskirts of Norwich.
Creatively designed to offer bright, well-proportioned, flexible accommodation, this house could be ideal for a multi-generational family or new owners with older children perhaps.
Built in 2007, it sits comfortably within its leafy surroundings, set back from the road in an elevated position.
The driveway at the front provides ample off-road parking and includes a turning area.
This also leads to an integral, double-length garage, with twin timber doors, power, lighting and a store room at the back.
The pretty front gardens have been landscaped to include walled flower and shrub beds, which have been planted out with a range of ornamental varieties.
Steps lead up to the front door of Ashwell House, and visitors then find themselves in a central reception hall.
From here there is access to a cloakroom, sitting room and kitchen breakfast room, as well as the staircase.
The large sitting room is a light, friendly space, with a bay window to the front aspect and a cast-iron, Victorian-style fireplace, with a marble hearth and timber surround.
Double doors lead through into the elegant dining room, which has French windows on to the terrace and garden, and a conveniently placed side door into the kitchen-breakfast room.
Highly likely to become the hub of this family home for its new owners, the kitchen-breakfast room has been beautifully designed to offer generous space for family meals as well as food preparation and storage.
It is well equipped, with a high-quality, tiled floor throughout and an extensive range of honey-coloured wall and floor cupboards and drawers, which contrast with granite-effect work surfaces and upstands.
Appliances include a five-ring Neff gas hob, with stainless steel Neff canopy extractor, a warming drawer, a double, electric Neff oven and an integral dishwasher.
There is a breakfast bar as well as space for a dining area, where the current owners have a television on the wall.
A utility room, which has units and work surfaces to match, is next to the kitchen and has a door on to the garden.
One of the many attractions of this house is the spacious bedroom or studio which is just a few stairs up from the central hall.
This long, light-filled space has a pretty arched window to the front and skylights above, and enjoys a contemporary-style en suite shower room.
It is roomy enough to make an outstanding bed-sitting room for anyone seeking some independence from the rest of the house, but it could also be a superb home-working space.
Three more bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found on the first floor.
The sumptuous master bedroom takes in a bay window and includes a built-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room.
From here there are the most magnificent views out across the surrounding landscape and over towards the river. The two back bedrooms have lovely views out over the verdant rear garden.
The gardens at Ashwell House have been designed with great care and attention and maintained impeccably.
The back garden has an almost parkland style and features a range of colourful and leafy plants and shrubs.
The large paved terrace area is a wonderful space for outside dining, relaxation and entertaining. An attractive retaining, red-brick wall encloses a sweeping lawn area with mature trees at the rear.
Thorpe St Andrew is popular for its proximity to the city and the train station, as well as access to the A47, the coast and the Broads National Park.
This is a house which offers very flexible living space and beautiful gardens too – and new owners will be able to move straight in and enjoy it immediately.
