5 Bedroom House For Sale


Set right in the heart of this increasingly popular North Norfolk village, The Old Plough is a substantial and elegant Grade II Listed home that has been lovingly refurbished by the current homeowners, and as such it is presented in beautiful condition throughout whilst retaining all of its period charm.

This former coaching inn is now perfectly arranged for modern family living with a large central kitchen breakfast room which has an island breakfast bar and log burner, making it the real hub of the home. The stylishly fitted kitchen is further complemented by the double openings either side of the fireplace that link it seamlessly to the dining room providing excellent free flowing family living space. On the other side of the kitchen is the more formal 25ft reception room which, with oak beamed fireplace at either end, give the room a really grand feel. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors, with the sumptuous master bedroom suite having a large en-suite bathroom with separate shower, as well as a full size walk in wardrobe. Two of the other bedrooms also have en-suite and there is a large family bathroom with an elegant claw foot and roll top central bath, perfect for a relaxing soak.

In addition to this, and adjoining the rear of the house there is also a completely separate self-contained annexe that comprises a kitchen and separate reception room on the ground floor and a large double bedroom with en-suite upstairs. The annexe is ideal for either guest accommodation or would make an incredibly successful holiday let.

If that were not enough there are a further two buildings included with The Old Plough, the first is the double height brick and flint barn to the rear of the main house, currently used for storage but with obvious potential (subject to the usual consents) for conversion into either additional accommodation and living space or also an ideal space for anyone wishing to run a business from home. The other outbuildings are also period brick and flint and are to the rear of the garden. They are divided into three with a garage and storage building to one end, a summer house with south facing decked area to the other and in the middle is an open courtyard that could be covered and linked together to also provide additional accommodation or work space should one wish. In addition to the garage and the barn there is ample gravelled off street parking for several cars, and the gardens are lawned and mostly open to the south and the west ensuring plenty of sunshine throughout the day.

The current owners have created a truly beautiful finish with this historic building and whilst the main house is in perfect condition there remains huge potential for the next custodians to enjoy fulfilling the further potential that the outbuildings have to offer.
 

DOCKING Docking is a busy village with a small supermarket and post office, a fish and chip shop, a pub, a large village playing field, tennis court and bowling green. There is a weekly farmers market with stallholders including a baker, fishmonger, a butcher and greengrocer, and with stalls selling cheese, preserves and cakes. The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk Coast and its long, fine sandy beaches. Brancaster and The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club are about five miles away. There are two golf courses in Hunstanton, which is less than eight miles away. The Titchwell Bird Reserve, home to terns and waders is close by. The ultra fashionable Georgian village of Burnham Market, Sandringham and the market towns of Fakenham and King's Lynn are also nearby.
