A contemporary chalet bungalow built in the 1970s of brick cavity walls under a pitched tiled roof with uPVC double glazing. The property stands well in its spacious ½ acre (approx.) plot, set back from the road, with a well laid driveway leading up to the turning and parking area in front of the house and access into the car port garaging.
The flexible accommodation offers rooms of good dimensions and ceiling heights. The ground floor reception and bedrooms have superb natural light through large picture frame windows and the stunning original parquet flooring remains in the entrance hall and family room.
The bedrooms are on first floor and ground floor level. Two of the bedrooms have fitted wardrobes. The house boasts 2 conservatories; the largest, added by the current owners, is accessed through the kitchen and is a fantastic space for relaxing, dining and entertaining.
The property benefits from a substantial building in the rear garden (which can be accessed by vehicle from the west side of the house) currently housing a beautiful indoor swimming pool with a newly refurbished pump house, boiler room and shower. This building does have potential for other uses such as an annexe for a dependent relative or home office (subject to the necessary planning permissions). The current owners have refurbished the kitchen with a bespoke Anglia kitchen with granite work surfaces and integral appliances including a dishwasher, fridge, microwave and a Neff double oven electric cooker with a five ring gas hob. The family bathroom has been refurbished with a Porcelanosa suite with full wall and floor tiling, a shower cubicle with rainfall shower, corner bath, WC, hand basin and heated towel rail.
An Indian stone terrace has been laid between the kitchen and outbuilding (which is plumbed and used for a utility, laundry and storage room). This terrace faces east and enjoys the morning sun. The rear garden is completely enclosed and in addition to the pool house there is a wooden garden store and a summerhouse with an under-cover decking area; facing west, it is a delightful place to sit and relax in the evening.
25 Burgh Road is situated within 300m of Aylsham Market Place renowned for its fine architecture, attractive market square shopping, banking and transport facilities. The town boasts an excellent state school and is convenient for Gresham School, Holt, Beeston Hall and Paston College.
There is a frequent bus service from the Market Place to Norwich and Cromer and links to surrounding villages. The Bure Valley railway runs trains to and from Wroxham throughout the summer and Bure Valley cycle path offers an alternative route. Nationally recognised trails Weavers Way and Marriott’s Way pass to the north and south edges of the town respectively.
The National Trust properties Blickling Hall, Felbrigg and Sheringham Park are well within easy travelling distance by car with excellent leisure and walking amenities. The North Norfolk Coast, most of which is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is about 8 miles to the north and the popular Georgian town of Holt is about 12 miles.
The city of Norwich lies about 10 miles to the south. There is a main line rail service to London Liverpool Street (about 110 minutes) and an airport providing domestic and international flights.
The grounds are well-maintained with a superb tarmac driveway, some delightful cherry trees, a monkey puzzle tree to the front and evergreen trees planted around the property’s boundaries. The garden has been designed to be a low maintenance but attractive outside space.
From Norwich take the A140 Cromer Road and on reaching the Aylsham roundabout continue into the town. Just after Budgens supermarket and a parade of shops, take the right hand turn into Burgh Road. After approximately 250m on your left hand side you will see a white picket fence and the driveway entrance to 25 Burgh Road.
