3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
With a name such as The Old Stores, it is no surprise that this delightful home is perfectly located in the heart of its north Norfolk village, Stanhoe.
Upon entering the cottage it is immediately evident that this property is flooded with natural light. With a glass-sided garden room on one half of the hall and the lantern roof over the kitchen and dining room, this part of the cottage feels incredibly light and airy.
Step through into the reception room and, with its exposed beams and log burner, this area is both comforting and warm - the perfect place for a winter's evening.
There are three double bedrooms, two on the ground floor, which share a shower room, whilst upstairs the first floor is completely given over to the principal suite with a walk-in dressing room, generous bathroom and delightful countryside views to the front.
In the garden room, french doors lead you out to the landscaped outdoors. Throughout the garden is perfectly arranged to make use of its space but with minimal maintenance. Immediately adjoining the house is a patioed area, ideal for al fresco dining. A gravelled path leads you up to the summer house (currently a fully operational workshop) and then, to the far end of the garden to a further patio area with idyllic views over the grazing meadow beyond and the perfect place to sit and watch the sun set.
In addition to the off street parking space to the side of the cottage there is current planning to further extend the property on the ground floor to create an even larger kitchen and dining room with direct access out to the garden.
The Old Stores was initially bought by the current owners as a second home. However, so much did they enjoy staying in the cottage, village life and - in particular - The Duck Inn, that it became their main home and they have decided to move to the county permanently.
During their ownership they have refurbished the cottage into the home we see today, stylish and light whilst retaining the character of the original home. It would make a perfect home-from-home, second-home or holiday let.
STANHOE A a small rural village, Stanhoe is centred around a large duck pond.
The Duck Inn, an award-winning gastro-pub, offers the very best in locally sourced produce. The village also has a church, All Saints, one of six churches which along with the parishes of Bircham, Sedgeford and Docking make up the United Benefice of Docking.
