A charming Grade II listed end town house, attractively located in the town centre.
Location The historic medieval market town of Aylsham is ideally located for easy access to a number of key locations. The thriving North Norfolk coastal town of Cromer is 10.75 miles, the cathedral city of Norwich is 12.7 miles south, North Walsham to the east is 7.3 miles and the Georgian town of Holt some 12 miles. Standing beside the River Bure, Aylsham has all the characteristics you would expect to find in any Norfolk market town with its charming narrow streets and alleys and unspoilt market place which has been holding a regular farmers market since the 1500’s. There are various examples of fine architecture dating back over many centuries with a stunning church in the centre of town, steeped in regional Norfolk history. Aylsham is also close to Blickling Hall once home to Boelyn family and plays host to a thriving tourist industry.
The bustling town has a rich variety of independent shops along with three supermarkets, petrol station together with two doctors surgeries, optician, chemist, library and town hall along with several nursery, primary and junior schools and an Ofsted ‘Good’ secondary (up to 16) school, rated 11th amongst all high schools in the county of Norfolk in 2017.
Description Church Hill House is a most attractive double fronted Grade II listed end town house quietly tucked away on the Cromer Road at the junction with Red Lion Street and White Hart Street, adjacent to the church yard with fine views towards St Michaels Parish Church. Dating from the late 18th century, the property has colour washed brick and flint elevations under a pantile roof and was formerly two cottages made into one during the 1860’s.
The comfortable bright and airy gas central heated accommodation is arranged over two floors and whilst retaining a number of period features, Church Hill House has been sympathetically and tastefully renovated creating a contemporary and very comfortable feel with the charm and character of a period home. The main entrance door opens into a generous dining/family room open to the kitchen area and a tucked away utility space. The cosy sitting room is centred around a fireplace with one of the two windows overlooking the church yard. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and the principal having an en-suite shower room. The spacious landing is ideal for a small study area.
The bespoke doors on the first floor are solid oak with pewter style door latches and the light switches throughout certainly add a touch of class.
The pretty garden at the rear of the house, with south westerly aspect, has been hard landscaped for ease of maintenance and also offers almost total privacy and seclusion being screened by brick walls and an attractive brick and flint gable of a neighbouring building. A gate from the garden leads to a good size gravel courtyard and two parking spaces.
Church Hill House would make an ideal home for a professional couple, those looking for a smaller home with access to good local amenities within very easy walking distance or as a second home or holiday let.
