House for Sale in Swaffham, Norfolk, PE37 7HW
Beech House is a commanding Grade II listed house, dating back to the mid 18th century with later additions and alterations. Acquired by the current owner in 2007 the house has since been sympathetically refurbished and renovated with all period detail being retained and enhanced.
The classically proportioned rooms are a highlight of the house and enjoy a mixture of Victorian and Georgian sash windows with a particularly attractive and rare canted bay widow on 2 levels on the east front. These allow plenty of light into all rooms and increase the feeling of space and light.
The entrance hall, accessed via the main door with fluted pilasters and open segmental pediment, leads onto to the central staircase hall, the main reception rooms and the large kitchen/breakfast room which has fine views over the garden and a separate entrance. There is an elegantly proportioned dining room with fireplace and a drawing room and living room which is essentially open plan and runs the full width of the house. These two latter mentioned rooms are divided by a central chimney breast with wood burner on either side and although still very much a grand room there is a cosiness created by the 'rectory red' Farrow & Ball paint and the mellow brick chimney breast.
