4 Bedroom House Sold
A beautifully presented three storey brick and flint detached cottage dating back to 1872, located in the picturesque and very desirable village of Castle Acre.
This charming and characterful home is an extremely versatile property, offering a deceptive level of accommodation comprised over three floors.
Once entering the cottage, you are greeted by a well-proportioned entrance hall with stairs leading to the lower ground floor and first floor with doors leading to the dining room. The dining room boasts a large sash window looking out to the village scene and flooding this space with natural light. There is then a door leading through to a kitchen which has a comprehensive range of base and wall mounted fitted units, rolled edge work tops, inset stainless steel sink and integrated electric oven and hob. There is then a door leading out to side porch/utility room with doors leading out to the garden. Continuing this floor there are two more versatile rooms, a study with original cast iron fireplace and a store room/larder.
Moving down to the lower ground floor (which was originally a stable) you will find a sizeable sitting room, with an impressive open fireplace, which is the focal point of the room. There are exposed beams to the ceiling, wood floors and some gorgeous curved french doors which leading out to the south facing garden. There is also a bedroom and shower room on this level.
On the first floor, there are three well-proportioned bedrooms which all benefit from views either over the garden to rear or out to the pretty village scene to the front. The principal bedroom has an original cast iron fireplace and there is a family bathroom on the floor servicing all three bedrooms.
Outside the front garden has a gated path leading to the front entrance door. The front garden has planted shrub and flower beds and is enclosed by fencing, there is a gravel driveway providing off-road parking to the side of the property with a path leading to the raised garden area. This is paved with planted shrub and flower borders and is a great place to dine alfresco, as this elevated position takes in the view of lower garden. There are then steps leading down to the lower garden with another raised patio seating area with steps leading down to the lawned garden with planted shrub and flower borders. This is where you really get sense of space as the garden is a good size and is incredibly private and secluded due to it being lower than the street level.
The cottage has been reconfigured by the current owners to suit their needs and is not only very deceptive but also brilliantly versatile, a viewing is strongly recommended to fully grasp what this charming home has to offer.
CASTLE ACRE Castle Acre is a picturesque village about four miles from the market town of Swaffham and is well known for its 13th century priory and castle ruins. There are interesting narrow streets which focus around the village green where a tearoom, an antique shop and pub/restaurant can be found. Further amenities include an excellent grocery shop with post office and a new fish and chip shop. There is a book store which is open once a week and at the centre is a fine church. Castle Acre is the mid-point on Peddars Way, the old roman road built to speed soldiers from the south to control the rebellious Iceni. The River Nar flows through fields surrounding the village and these offer an ideal area for country walks. In 2009 a new school was built catering for ages up to Year 6.
