This brick and flint house dating to the late 18th century is situated in glorious prime north Norfolk turf in the village of Thursford, made world famous for a certain annual festive show and also with delights such as Melton Constable on its doorstep.
And, there is also a surprise extra in the form of a 16 year-old billy goat called Brian who himself has just had his own home given a makeover and extension - a mini 'conservatory' at the entrance to his shed which means he can look out and see his owners. Brian will be moving with his owners but if you visit the property, you can see his luxury abode at the rear overlooking fields beyond.
Now, to the main house; the owners have lived in the cottage for two years, renovating it over 18 months. They said they fell in love with its position with those gorgeous countryside views and the feeling of being remote and yet in fact it is close to village amenities such as the Crawfish public house and apparently there's a lovely community feeling in Thursford.
However, you can sit at the rear of the property which has a veranda style covered seating area and really feel you are in your very own part of the world enjoying the wildlife such as rare birds which come and feed from your garden, often coming in from the nearby woodland.
Also, who could fail to fall in love with the look of this house with its imposing front brick and flint facade? As the owners said, it has a 'big presence' and every time you pull into the drive, you can be reminded of that.

Inside, this home is immaculate and all the painstaking work has been done including the installation of a new kitchen, bathroom and en suites and complete redecoration throughout. The owners have tried to make it more easy to live in too, putting in a wood burner in the sitting room, rather
than leaving the open fire. This room is open plan with a dining room and has direct access to the gardens.

There's plenty of character; you've got beams, brickwork, some lovely wooden floors and doors, monkey tail latches yet it's sumptuous too, carpeted for extra cosiness and warmth and boasting an open staircase which gives the downstairs more of a feeling of light and space. Of particular note is the super kitchen/breakfast area which has bi-folding doors to the veranda and garden and boasts a very attractive shaker style, free-standing, bespoke kitchen, made by a local craftsman.
The house boasts four bedrooms including a master bedroom with a new en suite and outside, this house sits in a gorgeous plot with gardens to the front and rear. You have about 0.4 of an acre planted with roses and lavender and much awaited spring flowers just starting to rear their pretty heads right now.
