Tower Road, Burnham Overy Staithe, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31

££895,000 Guide

4 Bedroom End of Terrace House For Sale

Having originally been two smaller cottages, Rahere is an extremely well balanced and surprisingly substantial four double bedroom cottage just a moment's walk from the Staithe.

Although the front door of this cottage is on Tower Road this is very much a home where you will come and go via the kitchen door at the rear having approached from the parking area. The ground floor living space is free flowing and consists of two reception rooms to the front, both with open fireplaces and both interconnected. These two rooms allow for different generations of the family to relax separately without getting under each other's feet but the larger of the two also provides ample space for when everyone comes together. In the centre of the cottage is a very useful boot room and the kitchen dining room has a cosy dining space at the end overlooking the garden.

Upstairs all four bedrooms are good double bedrooms and retain some lovely period features such as wonderfully wide floorboards and original fireplaces. All four bedrooms share the family bathroom but the principal bedroom also has a corner wash basin.
Outside and to the rear the garden is enclosed, private and south facing. There is a west facing patio immediately off the kitchen dining room and there is also a very useful brick outbuilding that provides for some extra storage for bikes and kayaks as well as an open sided end which is perfect for al fresco cooking that the English summer weather cannot spoil.

A rarity in Burnham Overy Staithe, Rahere has a private gated parking area with electric car charging point and with space for cars and a boat, just a short distance from the creek.

Rahere has been a much loved home from home for the current owners for several years and they have loved being able to slip out of the front door, cross over to the Staithe and be on the water in no time at all or wander down to The Hero in under five minutes. They have also appreciated the peace of mind of having a safe space for their boat over the winter months. When not using the cottage for themselves it has also been a very successful holiday let and could easily continue as such.

BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE A small village on the North Norfolk Coast, Burnham Overy Staithe has a natural tidal harbour. It has a good gastro pub - The Hero and there are good walks across the marshes and long sandy beaches. It's close to Burnham Market with all of its amenities.

Both Overy Town and Overy Staithe lie on the River Burn, and until the end of the Middle Ages trading ships were able to reach the village of Burnham Overy Town. Whenever a ship arrived a gong would be sounded at the top of Gong Lane in Burnham Overy Staithe, to alert the farm workers to unload the incoming goods.

Perhaps Burnham Overy's most famous resident was Richard Woodget. He first went to sea in coasters plying the waters off the east coast of England. In 1885 he was appointed captain of the Cutty Sark. He made several record breaking journeys between the UK and Australia.

Burnham Thorpe, the birthplace of Nelson, is a mile to the southeast. King's Lynn is 20 miles away with mainline access to Cambridge and London and Norwich is 30 miles away with its international gateway via Schiphol.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
