This period farmhouse, believed to date from the 18th Century with later 19th Century alterations and additions. The house is traditionally constructed of brick, colour washed, under a tiled roof and retains much period detail.
Significant improvements have been carried out to include the remodelling of the kitchen to create a superb large farmhouse kitchen/dining room with custom built fitted kitchen and also equipped with 4-oven Aga.
An outstanding feature of the property is its unspoilt rural position set in mature and well stocked gardens and grounds. There is meadowland bordering a stream, a tributary of the River Bure to the east. The house is situated in a sheltered position in the lea of a small valley.
Valley Farm is situated about 3/4 mile from the village of Corpusty, which has a post office and village store, together with a pub and primary school. More extensive shopping facilities can be found in the Georgian town of Holt, 6 miles to the north, as well as the renowned Greshams public school. The North Norfolk coast, much of which is classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty, offers excellent sailing and bird watching facilities, with the village of Blakeney 10 miles from Corpusty. The market town of Aylsham is about 6 miles, with Blickling Hall situated nearby.
