Pillar Box House description

This striking pink, detached, timber framed, period house is rich in character, with oak beams, wooden floors and an inglenook fireplace. From the moment you step in, you are greeted with an impressive reception hall. The house is set over three floors, offering comfortable accommodation with a spacious, beamed living room and an open fire, set in an inglenook fireplace. There is a well equipped kitchen and dining area with a wood burner which is ideal for hosting and entertaining. The master bedroom suite occupies the top floor and boasts its own en-suite and dressing room with enough space for all four bedrooms. A stable door opens onto the fully enclosed, sunny garden, complete with a hot tub and patio with furniture, as well as a lawned garden at the side of the property.

Pillar Box House is situated in the small, rural hamlet of Hackford, neighbouring the market town of Wymondham and the pretty Georgian village of Hingham. The parish of Hackford is listed within the Domesday Book, and has Saxon origins. Together with nearby parishes, there is interesting archaeology, with evidence of activity from the Palaeolithic Period to modern day. The city of Norwich is 13 miles away for excellent shopping, two indoor malls, theatre, castle museum, cathedral, pubs, fine restaurants, market square, cafés and art galleries. The surrounding countryside provides endless opportunities for cycling and walking. Thetford Forest is 19 miles away and boasts designated picnic areas, footpaths and cycle trails, challenging cycling routes, climbing and adventure activities. The Pingo Trail, an extraordinary and fascinating walk, and Thompson Park are just 10 miles away. The pretty Georgian market town of Hingham, 2 miles, is steeped in history with a small selection of shops and a good pub around the village green. Wymondham, 3 miles, is an attractive historic market town with many shops, railway station, cafés, pubs, and a leisure centre with a spectacular spa. The massive towers of Wymondham Abbey are set against the green fields of the Tiffey Valley. Barnham Broom is 3 miles with a golf course and leisure club. For keen anglers, there are fishing lakes available at Hingham (£6 per day). Should you prefer to spend a day on the beach, the North Norfolk Coast can be reached within a 40-minute drive. From the doorstep, public footpaths and extensive dog walking are in abundance. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles. Ground Floor:
