A fine period house set in about 4.2 acres with outstanding and far reaching views over the Waveney Valley to the West. Waveney House is a substantial late Victorian property traditionally constructed of red brick under a slate roof and situated in a commanding and elevated position.
The house has been well modernised and restored over the years and has impressive accommodation together with large and well proportioned rooms with good ceiling height many of which have fine views over the Waveney Valley. There are many attractive features including fine cornice work and mouldings, fireplaces and panelled doors etc. The property has been considerably improved, has been re-roofed, re-plumbed and re-wired. In addition, the kitchen has been re-fitted with a Bespoke range of oak units together with an Aga cooking range. The kitchen enjoys an open plan aspect to the dining room and also a delightful morning room with views over the rear gardens. The elegant drawing room has views over the Waveney Valley and also provides access to a recently built Victorian style conservatory, very much in keeping with the character of Waveney House. From here the views are stunning with double doors leading to the impressive heated swimming pool and gardens beyond.
Within the already substantial accommodation, Waveney House provides excellent potential to create 2 separate annexes if so required. The first of which is situated on the East Wing and would have its own separate access to a spacious 2 bedroom unit. The other could be formed on the entire top floor and again would provide 2 bedrooms.
