Property description

Set in the very heart of this historic North Norfolk village, this is an exceptional opportunity for someone to not only create their own style and finish but also, should they wish, establish a profitable holiday home business. Currently the property consists of an attractive double fronted two storey Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse with a 17th century double height barn attached to its rear. Immediately adjacent to the main house is a substantial courtyard with a series of Victorian outbuildings along both the eastern boundary as well as the northern boundary, that create a courtyard effect and that would also provide for plenty of off street parking. Plans have been created to fully refurbish the site with the main house opening up to the barn, giving it an incredible open plan kitchen, dining and living space with a wonderful full height pitched ceiling along with an abundance of additional ground floor entertaining and living rooms at the front of the house. Upstairs there would be three generous bedroom suites with the principal bedroom having the unusual but eye catching addition of a mezzanine sitting room overlooking the open plan living space below. Furthermore the suggested plans allow for the outbuildings to be transformed into two separate and self-contained annexes, one with a single double bedroom, the other with two double bedrooms. Given the year round draw of tourists to the village it is highly expected that these two small units could achieve almost constant occupancy should you wish, or alternatively they would make ideal guest accommodation to the main house. As well as the courtyard to the side there is also a substantial west facing garden that is open to the south at the rear of the main house so there is ample outside space for a family home. Clearly the condition of this property requires a buyer with imagination and an open mind but this house really does represent not only incredible potential, but also the possibility for the next custodian to create a heritage home in a village that has been known for its legacy for centuries.

    The Old Rectory 21 Oak Street Fakenham, Norfolk NR21 9DX

    From day one, opening the Burnham Market office back in 1994, it was always about delivering something really special which no other agent was doing at the time. It felt back then that the world of estate agency was about what you could get out of people, rather than what level of service could you provide for them. Sowerbys still feels like ‘a breath of fresh air’ where we treat everyone as we would want to be treated ourselves. We want to do a really good job and feel like we have justified our fee by offering the best service and getting people the very best price possible for what is usually their biggest asset. We are really lucky to have great people in our business who really care and do the best for every person they come into contact with. We are very proud of the warm welcome we receive when we walk through the door of any of our offices, because we know it is the same welcome every client receives.
