St. Andrews Lane, Congham, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE32

££650,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

Understood to have previously been part of the former High House Estate, which sadly burnt down in 1939, it is thought that this home has been part of the landscape and history of the local area for around a century.

Our client has lovingly occupied the property for the past decade and is now looking to relocate for their own next adventure having hugely enjoyed their time at High Cottages.

The previous owners extended the property and began a bed and breakfast business which has been continued to this day - albeit more as a hobby in recent years, still welcoming the occasional guest to enjoy the fabulous and picturesque surroundings.

Whether venturing out on foot, bike or even horseback, there are a multitude of scenic leafy routes to explore and some superb local pubs and restaurants nearby, including The Anvil Inn which is just a short wiggle away through the heart of this sought-after village. It provides a terrific pit-stop for a nibble and a drink before heading back to cosy-up by the fire.

To the ground floor, the day-to-day accommodation is comprised of an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room and conservatory; each room provides substantial space for entertaining guests and family throughout the year. Some idyllic views are particularly noteworthy from the kitchen window, as they stretch out into the woodland beyond.

Exposed brickwork and timber beams offer a warmth and timeless comfort as the fabric of the property tells its own story, which is further complemented with the addition of two log burners and a gorgeous AGA cooker which is wonderfully in-keeping with the country cottage appeal.

Two double bedrooms, with en-suite shower rooms, are ideal for business or family use; being situated to one side of the home they also benefit from a little extra privacy and this may often be appreciated for multi-generational living, or indeed visiting guests.

Upstairs are three further bedrooms each enjoying elevated vistas over the rural setting.

Impressively, one has the use of a roof terrace, which being largely south facing, is superb from dawn to dusk.

All the bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with an over-bath shower.

Outside the garden once again enjoys sun throughout the day and there are number of different areas which lend themselves to open lawn or, of course, fruit and vegetable patches.

Extensive off-road parking is naturally great for business operations but equally, with five bedrooms, there is plenty of space for the comings and goings of family and friends.

A number of timber framed stores lend themselves to numerous potential functions and a place to keep bikes, beach gear or even a snooker table.

With the benefits of both local amenities and more major facilities only a short drive away, it is hard to believe such a peaceful spot exists.

CONGHAM A small rural hamlet, Congham is on the edge of the village of Grimston.

It has the fine Congham Hall Hotel and Restaurant and The Anvil Inn pub, which offers a cosy retreat along with meals.

One of the most famous things about Congham is undoubtedly its annual World Championship Snail Racing. The snails race on a circular course and the first to reach a marker close to the edge is deemed the world champion. Ready, steady...slow!

Grimston has a general store, pub and an outstanding first school.

King's Lynn is within easy reach and is perched on the banks of the River Ouse, King's Lynn has been a centre of trade and industry since the Middle Ages, and its rich history is reflected in the many beautiful buildings which still line the historic quarter.

Originally named Bishop's Lynn, during the reign of Henry VIII the town was surrendered to the crown and took the name King's Lynn. During the 14th century, Lynn was England's most important port, dominated by the Hanseatic League. Although the growth of London later eroded the port's importance, ship-building and fishing became prominent industries, the latter of which is documented at True's Yard Museum.

The town has an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, places to eat, ten-pin bowling alley, swimming pool, football club, cinema, theatre and three impressive churches.

There are many services within the town including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, police station, fire station, primary schools, three secondary schools, college and a library.
The town also holds weekly markets and many events throughout the year. King's Lynn is connected to the local cities of Norwich and Peterborough via the A47 and to Cambridge via the A10. There is a mainline rail link via Cambridge to London King's Cross, approx. 1 hour and 40 minutes.


SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water and electricity. Drainage to septic tank. Oil fired central heating and the AGA cooker subsidises the heating of hot water, in conjunction with the oil boiler.
