Sitting Room with Fireplace
Reception Room with Fireplace
Five Double Bedrooms
Plenty of Integrated Storage
The front porch opens into a sizeable entrance hall, with a handy cupboard for boots and coats. To your left, a door leads into the sitting room, which stretches the depth of the house footprint. A fireplace with log burner takes centre stage and French doors open on to the rear South-facing patio. Another sizable reception room with fireplace and log burner sits between here and the dining room, providing an ideal study space or TV room. The dining room sits to the rear and has ample space for a good-size table and chair set, and another set of French doors open on to the rear patio. The kitchen offers a good amount of worktop and storage space, along with a breakfast bar, walk-in larder and log-fired Esse cooker, which contributes to the domestic hot water. Before moving upstairs; from the hallway is a WC, further storage and utility room, completing the ground-floor. A long landing provides access to the five double bedrooms on offer, all benefitting from integrated storage and three of which being very generous in size. Lastly the first-floor facilities are separated into a full shower room, separate room with bath, and another WC.
Garden & Grounds
The front entrance opens on to a wide gravel driveway in front of the property, offering plenty of parking. The double garage is fitted with large sliding doors and has a workshop area to the rear. Inside you will find power/light and a home for the boiler. The remainder of the frontage is laid neatly to lawn, with well-stocked colourful plant beds to the bottom-right corner, continuing up beside the house. The house forms an L shape around the rear patio, creating a real sun trap. Every direction you look is attractive, well kept plant beds, brimming with colour. A small set of steps leads up to the main lawn area, with some mature trees and bushes to the edges. Pathways lead beyond this part of the garden to a more practical area to the rear, with vegetable patches, fruit bushes, greenhouse, polytunnel and garden storage. Beside the garden is a two acre field (STS) accessed by five-bar gates from the garden and directly from the lane, allowing vehicle access all the way up. Currently laid to meadowland with tree plantations, the remaining space would be ideal for those who like to keep horses. A gravelled seating area has been created by the current owners for enjoying a peaceful moment with great views as the sun sets.
With direct access to the Broads network, Hardley is a small but desirable rural village located just outside of Loddon. The house is close to many beautiful walks by the River Yare and Chet, and the bird sanctuary of Hardley Flood.
