Full Description

Little Thatch is set on the edge of Yarmouth and enjoys a high degree of privacy. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the delightful gardens extend to 0.9 of an acre. The gardens adjoin the rolling hills of Afton Down and beyond, to distant views of Tennyson Down (National Trust).
Little Thatch is a lovely character home, elegantly decorated throughout to an extremely high standard. Architectural details of the 1920's period are presented in the curved cornicing, leaded light windows with deep-set timber frames, original doors and fireplaces.
The complete refurbishment includes oak engineered floors with under-floor heating throughout the ground floor. There is a new electrical circuit, new plumbing and gas central heating and new timber windows throughout.
The layout of the house has a logical and easy flow. The large reception rooms take advantage of a bright southerly aspect, two of which have full height French doors, which open out to the sandstone patio. The main reception room is also bright. It has views to three sides and captures the evening sun. It boasts a carved limestone 'Minster' fireplace, within which sits a powerful wood-burning stove.

The recently fitted kitchen and utility are in keeping with the character of the property. The shaker style cupboards are oak fronted and hand-painted and the solid oak worktops have ceramic sinks. The terracotta floor is under-floor heated.

The bathroom and en-suite are also beautifully appointed, with matching traditional white suites, large showers and tiled floors.
Upstairs, the staircase is bright and airy, due to a fabulous double height window, a typical feature of the1920's.
The landing gives access to the master bedroom suite, three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. A dropdown ladder gives access to a large loft, with dormer window to the front.
All four bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes and lovely views of the garden and the beautiful landscape.

OUTSIDE The front of Little Thatch is set behind a handsome limestone wall, and a wonderful entrance gate. This 'lychgate' is made of oak and its thatched roof has recently been renewed. The gravelled driveway is accessed through heavy oak gates and provides parking for several cars.

The attached garage is spacious and also serves as a workshop. It features the original rolling wooden door.

The well-stocked garden provides colour throughout the year. Mature trees include oak, weeping willow, Douglas fir and an avenue of tall poplars. Fruit trees include mulberry, plumb, apple, cherry and pear.
The garden enjoys a wide sandstone patio, extending to the full width of the house. The lawn is divided by a tiled path and pergola. On the left is a raised decked area, which gives access to the gazebo – a substantial outbuilding with a tiled roof and balustrade. Light and power makes the gazebo a lovely spot for alfresco dining. The new Jacuzzi is positioned to take in spectacular and uninterrupted views of Afton Down, and Tennyson Down beyond.
To the right beyond a stone wall is a side lawn which ideal for games. This area presents an opportunity to extend with a conservatory or an annex.
A brick path leads to a large and attractive garden store. It is weather-boarded and has windows to three sides.

SETTING Little Thatch is well located on the edge of the historic and thriving town of Yarmouth, which is just a two-minute drive, or 15-minute stroll to its shops, restaurants and bars. With glorious countryside on the doorstep, the area offers a spectacular environment for walking, golfing, cycling and sailing.
