Cuckstool Lane, Castle Acre, Kings Lynn, Norfolk, PE32

££625,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Chalet For Sale

Lovingly named the "The Last House" by its owners, not only because of its position at the very end of the lane, but also because after years of travelling, they knew this would be where they were to put down roots. This unique home has been owned by the same family for nearly forty years.

Located on the edge of the historic village of Castle Acre, The Last House enjoys a plot like no other, with views of the ancient castle at the front, and to the rear open views across the water meadow garden which meets the meandering River Nar, complete with its own jetty. The plot itself is generous, extending to approximately a third of an acre (STMS). Alongside the Nar Valley Way walking route, you are ideally placed from here to embrace the country lifestyle and stroll its miles of countryside, before returning to the village to enjoy a drink in the pub or the tea room and then settle in at home in front of the logburner.

The home itself would now benefit from some updating but offers spacious and flexible accommodation, and has the potential to create something very special. There is currently a dual aspect lounge, dining hall and either a downstairs bedroom or separate snug sitting room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes and dormer windows which face out over the garden offering a prime spot to sit and take in the views. Extending across the back of the property is a sun room, which also enjoys the unspoiled views.

Beside the house stands a detached double garage which has been used as a workshop and hobby space, and in front of this the gated driveway offers parking for several vehicles. The garden also has some outbuildings and a summerhouse.


CASTLE ACRE As you sit on the pretty village green and watch the world go by at a gentle pace, it's incredible to think that Castle Acre once played a major role in history. Yet the Norman ruins of Castle Acre Castle and Castle Acre Priory, respectively east and west of the village, are reminders of the village's grand ancestry when royalty would regularly arrive at the Bailey Gate and enjoy days spent hunting in the deer park.

The priory, now the charge of English Heritage, once housed a community of monks until Henry VIII disbanded monastic houses in 1537. You can still admire the beauty of the church gable and cloisters - run your fingers through the scented plants in the herb garden which the brothers would have used for daily cooking and healing centuries ago.

For a restorative moment today, head to The Ostrich which has been serving locals since the 1800s and was recently renovated by local building firm Grocott & Murfitt as a fantastic gastro-pub. Enjoy a bite and a reviving glass and wander along the High Street to Castle Antiques & Collectables to discover a curio or chic addition for your home.

At the meeting point of the Roman Peddars Way, the River Nar runs to the south of the village, leading east to Newton and on to the hamlet of Fiddler's Green. Follow the Massingham Road north west and you'll happen upon Castle Acre Water Tower, saved by photographer Dennis Pedersen who bought the once derelict wreck for just £25,000 and turned it into a contemporary spaceship-inspired family home with panoramic views over barley fields.

Of course there are plenty of traditional period homes, many lining the village green where pretty flint cottages are covered in rose blooms in the height of summer, along with newer properties to be discovered. With a local store and Post Office, a popular caf鬠fish and chip shop and even a small, independent bookstore, it's easy to see why so many people find their forever home in Castle Acre.
