Approached by a long tree-lined drive, The Old Rectory at Alburgh, near Harleston, offers more than its fair share of period charm.
Built in 1847, the house itself has been a much-loved family home for over 40 years and is currently on the market with Musker McIntyre at a guide price of £975,000.
Stone steps lead up to the front door of the property and into a spacious entrance hall. On the right this leads into a beautifully light and airy morning room, with stunning views over the front of the property, and on the left, to the home's attractive drawing room. This, too, is light and airy with double aspect windows, a high ceiling and a striking stone fireplace. Double doors open through to the formal dining room which again benefits from double aspect windows - this time offering views over the rear gardens - and an attractive standstone fireplace.
To the back of the property, there is a comfortable farmhouse-style kitchen and breakfast room which has been fitted with a good range of units and an oil-fired Aga.

From the kitchen, an inner hallway provides access to the garden room and a spacious games room, as well as two offices and a good-sized cloakroom. A set of stairs leads down to an extensive cellar.
There are three elegant ensuite bedrooms on the first floor, which all enjoy beautiful views over the surrounding gardens. Two further double bedrooms can also be found on this floor, along with a family bathroom.
A rear staircase, with full height window, gives access to the second floor and to two large attic bedrooms. These enjoy lovely dormer windows which offer far-reaching rural views.
Outside, the property sits in approximately four acres of land. To the side of the house, there is an established orchard area which is planted up with a variety of plum, greengage, apple and pear trees. A gate from here leads through to areas of formal lawn, where you can find a large terrace and pergola, and to the north of the property there is a fully enclosed paddock of approximately one acre.
