The Engine House is set behind the farmhouse and Norfolk barns of Silverstone Farm, no longer a working farm but the home of a talented designer, one of whose specialities is designing garden layouts, including his own. It has been imaginatively and stylishly converted, in a neo-classical style, into a single-storey flint-and-brick cottage. The cottage contains many interesting artefacts and antique furniture, and the walls are a backdrop to a fascinating collection of pictures and prints. A long, wide entrance hall links all the rooms in the cottage. This lovely property was featured in House and Garden Magazine in May 2007.
Silverstone Farm is two miles from North Elmham, a small village, which has a good village shop, pub and bakery.
