‘Fantastic’ eco home with TWO bars in the garden is for sale near Norwich for £550k
A unique, A-rated eco home with a south-facing garden has come up for sale near Norwich at a guide price of £550,000.
Selling agents Minors & Brady describe the three to four-bedroom property on Hall Close in Hethersett as a “rare opportunity” and say it has been built and finished to the current owner’s “highest” specification.
The property comes with quality fixtures and fittings, ground-floor underfloor heating and an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of ‘A’ – making it one of fewer than 40,000 homes in the country with the same rating.
Analysis of government data revealed last year that around just 0.2pc of the country’s properties were rated ‘A’ for energy efficiency, the highest rating a home can achieve, and which can lead to cheaper running costs.
Inside the property, accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes a large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor, as well as a cloakroom and entrance hall.
The kitchen has been built to a high standard throughout and is well-kitted out with a range of integrated, high-end Neff appliances, as well as a built-in coffee machine, combi microwave, oven, built-in dishwasher and fridge freezer and two warming drawers.

The space is also fitted with quartz worktops, has a breakfast bar and the units are fitted with LED multi-colour strips to add a pop of colour.
Elsewhere, the lounge and dining area offers plenty of space for a large dining table and sofa, and there are impressive bi-fold doors to the rear.
These are fitted with solar-powered blinds but let in loads of light and open into the south-facing garden, a low-maintenance outdoor space located in what was once the walls of the old kitchen garden to Hethersett Hall.
The garden has been designed around hosting and entertaining and features a large porcelain-tiled patio, created in the same style and look as the inside of the home. Once the bi-fold doors are open, the two spaces transition into one.

The garden also offers access to two well-equipped bars, ‘The Pub’ and ‘Gin Palace’, which are situated in converted outbuildings. These could remain as they are or be converted into alternative uses, perhaps as work-from-home offices or studios.
There is also a door to a ‘secret garden’ down the side of the property, and the outdoor space is also fitted with extensive low wattage LED lighting, which adds to the ambience.
Back in the house, the first floor offers three good-sized bedrooms, including the master which has a Juliet balcony, walk-in wardrobes and an en suite shower room. The family bathroom is also on this floor and is fitted with a double shower and a separate bath.
Upstairs, the loft has also been converted and could either be used as a bedroom or study.
The sale also includes two single but adjoining garages, which offer storage or additional off-road parking, plus an electric car charging point and large brick weave driveway.
