Friars Lane, Burnham Norton, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, PE31


3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold

With stunning views to both the front and the rear and tucked away just to the east of Burnham Market, Sheldrake is a substantial three bedroom single story property set in a plot of almost half an acre (STMS). The property has been in the same family ownership for over thirty years and was, for many years, the business hub of a highly respected local firm of builders with their yard located at the far end of the plot. The property itself was originally quite a modest bungalow but was extended to the front and rear to create what it is today. The interior layout is extremely well arranged with the bedrooms to the front and the free flowing living and entertaining space to the rear. The reception room has patio doors at the end which picture frame the iconic view over the water meadows of the River Burn towards Burnham Overy Staithe and the centrepiece of its windmill, a view that many a painter has replicated over the years. To the front of Sheldrake is a further reception room which could easily be used as a fourth bedroom however it has been enjoyed for many years as an evening room as it too has a beautiful view over to the west of St Margaret's Church, often with the setting sun behind it.

There are gardens to the front and rear of the property with a raised patio area immediately off the reception room and, whilst the rear garden is currently quite small due to the space originally being required for the builders yard, with some very simple landscaping this garden could flow down to the meadows beyond.

Sheldrake has been a well loved family home and as such has been wonderfully maintained for many years, however it would now benefit from some cosmetic updating throughout and of course there is ample room to further extend it should you wish.

BURNHAM NORTON Burnham Norton is a tiny village on a loop off the A149 coast road. It has no shops or pubs and is set in a quiet, dreamy spot with fabulous views across the salt marshes, the old village straddles the road, and there are a few buildings around the site of an old Carmelite Friary. The church of St Margaret sits on a hill about half a mile away. In the churchyard lies the body of Richard Woodget, Captain of the Cutty Sark. The vibrant village of Burnham Market is very nearby with its fashionable clothes and food shops and, of course, the Hoste Arms, one of the most popular inns in England.
