Walsingham Road, Burnham Thorpe, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31


3 Bedroom Detached House Sold

Plot Two is the western house of the two and is slightly larger in size than Plot One. The house has a Georgian style to it with an attractive blend of chalkstone and red brick. Although the house can be entered from the front, the main entrance and entrance hall, with its attractive and welcoming covered porchway, is actually to the side of the house and closest to the parking area. The ground floor is almost entirely open plan with the substantial kitchen, family and dining room incorporating two thirds of the entire length of the house across the front. This is then matched in its generosity of size by the seating area to the rear that takes maximum advantage of this house's orientation with bi-folding doors out to the south facing patio area as well as French doors out to the western side of the house ensuring that this room is flooded with natural light. In addition there is a separate utility room, a guest WC and finally, a home office or snug. Upstairs there are three equally substantial double bedroom suites, with the bedroom at the rear being accessed via a double sided walk-through dressing room with a large en-suite shower room. The other two bedrooms both have lovely views over the village green. The smaller of the two has an en-suite shower room with a gentle curving wall that really softens the room whilst the other, and largest of the three, is the principal bedroom with not only a walk-in dressing room but also a large en-suite with an elegant roll top bath.

Outside, and to the rear, the garden is almost entirely south facing, enclosed and mostly laid to lawn but with a large Indian Stone patio area that seamlessly links the kitchen family room with the sitting room and is perfect for al fresco entertaining. Plot Two has a large covered parking space as well as two further outdoor spaces, so ample space for storage should you need.

LOCATION Situated in the heart of the beautiful North Norfolk village of Burnham Thorpe, a village that is nationally revered as the birthplace of Admiral Lord Nelson, Blacksmith's Yard is an elegant development of just two individually designed and immaculately finished, detached, three bedroom houses. Both properties have been sympathetically planned and constructed by Holkham - an estate that has a long history of building and providing exceptional properties that seamlessly blend into the very fabric and character of their stunning locations. As you would expect from an historic estate such as Holkham - renowned for providing employment and accommodation for the local community for centuries - both the materials and skilled team of craftspeople are sourced locally where at all possible.

Representing one of the six villages that collectively are known as 'The Burnhams', Burnham Thorpe is almost certainly the most peaceful of them all. Tucked away in a pretty vale just over a mile to the south east of the hustle and bustle of vibrant Burnham Market, it really is off the beaten track and if Burnham Thorpe was not the birth place of our most revered and national Naval hero, Admiral Lord Nelson, then it would sit almost entirely unknown. Horatio Nelson was born in the village, the son of the local vicar and, although the original Rectory was demolished and rebuilt during Nelson's lifetime, there is now a blue plaque to mark the location. In terms of village amenities, as well as a village hall, at the centre of the village is a large green with an extensive children's play area and the River Burn bubbling along its southern side. Opposite the green is a large and very old pub originally called The Plough, but in 1798 it changed its name to The Lord Nelson in honour of Nelson's historic victory at The Battle of the Nile (and it was used by Lord Nelson to host large parties for the villagers when he returned to the village on leave). The pub is owned by Holkham and has recently undergone a huge programme of refurbishment and at the time of writing it is anticipated that it will once again welcome customers back in time for Easter 2021. As well as being only a short distance from all the shops, boutiques and restaurants of Burnham Market, Blacksmith's Yard is just over two miles to the south of the popular sailing village of Burnham Overy Staithe and just under five miles from Holkham beach, all easy and pretty walks or cycle rides.
