Imagine being able to send your other half out in the morning at the weekend to buy fresh bread or croissants from Byfords in Holt and then stopping by the deli at Bakers and Larners to pick up something for supper...

You can if you buy this fantastic home which is situated on Kelling Road so in walking distance of Holt and all its lovely eateries. You guessed it, I stopped for Byfords’ rocky road on my home from visiting this property!

Its location will be a big attraction for many because as well as the delights of Holt town centre, you also have Gresham’s just down the road going in the opposite direction and this could be ideal for a family looking to relocate.

The house looks and offers all the benefits of a new build but actually its award winning builder Derek Foreman has cleverly converted and completely transformed an original 1950s house which was on the quarter of an acre plot.

I’ve featured Mr Foreman’s houses before and it’s always pleasing to catch up with people a few years further down the line and see that they are still enjoying house building - in this case, Mr Foreman’s son has been working alongside him which is really fabulous to see.

Anyway, what you have essentially is 2,400 sqft of beautiful home to play with because Mr Foreman tensd to create large open plan living spaces which can be adapted to suit the buyer’s personal needs. What strikes you immediately as you walk in the door is feeling of space with a gorgeous wooden floor outstretched before you.

The white kitchen is just beautiful with quartz work surfaces and Bosch appliances - and I just loved the curved line of some of the units.

The design of the ground floor is such that spaces are divided by some walls and a feature brick wall as well as a modern take on the wood burner but essentially you can create the ‘rooms’ which all flow towards the rear of the house which is a set of sliding doors which go the entire width of the property - so you just get that wonderful view of the garden and feel that you can touch the grass even on a cold winter’s day.

You’ve got a shower room and a fourth bedroom downstairs - so you can create a guest suite and then comes the enjoyment of using a super oak and glass staircase which winds up to the first floor. Upstairs are three bedrooms including the master, an en suite and super bathroom with a large modern bath tub.

The bathroom and en suites boast Porcelonasa tiles and I really liked the metallic effect of the copper bathroom; very modern and stylish.

Outside you have a super garden with established trees - there really are three oaks as well as a large willow tree and at the front is room for parking and a double garage.

A prime house on prime turf!
