7 Bedroom Manor House For Sale
Dating back to the 1800's, The Old Rectory is a fine elegant example of a former Georgian Norfolk rectory. The property has been meticulously refurbished by the current owner and is currently being run as a luxury Bed & Breakfast generating a healthy income. If you are looking for either a business investment or a family home of grand proportions then viewing this property is a must.
Situated on a quiet part of King's Lynn and surrounded by wonderful buildings, this property stands out for all the right reasons. The accommodation is split over three levels: the lower ground floor, ground floor and first floor.
Upon entrance through the original front door, the spacious front porch gives you a taste of the things to come; a large Georgian sash window, sitting area and beautiful coving are just a few details that set the scene. A glass panelled door gives access to the hall from where all reception rooms can be accessed. The formal dining room as well as the sitting room are both flooded with natural light due to the dual aspect windows. The height of the ceiling and the open fireplaces add a sense of finesse to this characterful building. Off the dining room, an open access leads to the kitchen/breakfast area which has been beautifully upgraded and includes a range of base and wall units, granite worktops and all the modern built-in appliances – cooking here is nothing but a joy. Leading off the kitchen is the breakfast room with french doors leading to a terraced patio area, an open fireplace and views over the beautifully landscaped garden. Completing the ground floor space is a WC and stairs giving access to the lower ground floor and the first floor.
Lower Ground Floor
The lower ground floor space could be used as a fully self-contained annexe or indeed be used to run a smaller B&B for that extra income as it has a separate entrance in addition to the access from the main house. Here you will find three double bedrooms, all benefiting from access to private en-suites and there is even a further sitting area.
The landing gives access to three further en-suite bedrooms and a fourth bedroom which is currently used as a walk-in store room.
The outside space is of low maintenance. A gravel driveway to the front provides ample off-street parking spaces and is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs surrounding. There is a raised terrace area ideal for alfresco dining.
KING'S LYNN Located on the banks of the River Ouse, the popular town of King's Lynn is steeped in maritime history, with its fishing port still widely used today. From the much filmed old medieval centre around King's Lynn Minster to the redeveloped and pedestrianised Vancouver Shopping Centre. 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 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, approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Sandringham Estate is about 5 miles away with attractive walks through the woods. Slightly further away is the North Norfolk Coastline with its beautiful long, sandy beaches.
