Fancy living with Blickling Hall as your neighbour? How about buying this idyllic country cottage being sold on a National Trust lease for £550,000?
Bullace Cottage, Oulton, near Aylsham is really pretty mellow red brick cottage, situated close to the Blickling estate which has beautiful gardens of half an acre surrounded by National Trust-owned land, for sale with Savills. This means it is being sold under a National Trust lease, which expires in 2125; to see more about this visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk
For added outside enjoyment, the property includes a weather boarded and pan tiled summer house with a telephone line and power points.
Inside the cottage offers exposed beams and fireplaces. Of particular note, say Savills, is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, complete with an Aga and door out to the south facing terrace, a sitting room with woodburner, utility/boot room, study and snug as well as a ground floor bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms, with the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom with impressive vaulted ceiling and an additional bathroom. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with rose and lavender beds, shrubs, mature trees and well stocked herbaceous borders. To the west of the house is a well-stocked orchard.
The leasehold protects the National Trust land for the future but you can extend it; there may be a cost involved in this and the lease may include the payment of an annual rent.
