Sutton Road, Terrington St. Clement, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE34

££590,000 Guide

4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

An integral part of the history of Terrington St Clement, The Old School has stood in the centre of the village since the late 1800s, remaining as a local school until the 1990s before being transformed into a substantial family home.

The property is accessed through its original entrance vestibule with windows to either side. The main old school building is now a breathtaking sitting room of considerable proportions - in both floor area and ceiling height - allowing for the clever addition of a mezzanine study at one end. The original flooring has a warmth that is further accentuated by the Jacobean fireplace of Sir Thomas Holte (circa 1619), an impressive focal point. Next door is the dining room with more solid wood flooring and another open fire place, creating a grand reception room for entertaining.

The fantastic double aspect family kitchen is a bright and fabulously social space with room for a large informal dining table for day-to-day meals with friends and family. The dimensions are such that even an Aga is comfortably accommodated. The numerous wall and base units are accompanied by a pantry which could be utilised equally well as additional storage/filing space for the study. A further rear entrance is great for more occasional use particularly when returning from days out exploring the Norfolk countryside or returning home with the grocery shopping.

The former infant school is also attached, providing an extra reception room which the vendors use as a snug, again a wood-burning stove and the original ceiling on display. The property lends itself perfectly to multi-generational living if required and previously the vendors' family have lived with them quite comfortably, while enjoying their own space and privacy to the back of the building. Here there is a family room, second kitchen/utility room and modern bathroom, the presence of the latter offering the potential to use one of the reception rooms as a bedroom. One starts to see the versatility the property has as you tour around.

Looking back down over the sitting room, the view from the mezzanine is impressive. Upstairs there are four bedrooms with character oozing out in the form of ceiling trusses and exposed walls on display. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and there is also a family bathroom. The principal bedroom also enjoys the use of a walk-in dressing room which has the potential to be converted back to an additional bedroom should it be required.

Outside the vendors have transformed the gardens of the school, opening them out and created a wonderful selection of garden areas to sit and enjoy to all sides of the property which also includes bespoke wrought-iron gates, block paved driveway and cart lodge.

TERRINGTON ST CLEMENT Claimed to be the largest village in the county, the area backs onto the marshland of West Norfolk, where King John's crown jewels were said to be lost back in 1216.

Today the community comes together to make the most of the 14th century church, a primary and secondary school and everyday conveniences.

Terrington St Clement is 4.4 miles west of King's Lynn. This village has various shops, two doctors' surgeries, two pubs and two excellent schools - one primary and one secondary.
The huge church of St Clement is known as the Cathedral of the Fens. There is a half-hourly bus service to King's Lynn which has a good range of shops and superstores.

The town has activities from ten pin bowling to restaurants and a cinema. There is a direct rail link to London King's Cross -approx. 1 hr 40 mins. For the golfer there are courses at King's Lynn, Middleton Tydd St Giles and slightly further away are the challenging links courses of Hunstanton and the Royal West Norfolk at Brancaster.
