3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
It will come as no surprise this building has welcomed multitudes of people inside, over the course of its history.
Once a Victorian school, and in more recent years a well-loved day nursery, it has seen generations of children through its doors. Whilst it is a fine example of a bygone era, our vendors have also created a delightfully spacious home here, where parties at Christmas have involved large gatherings around the table. Our clients have retained much of its character, given their love for so much of its past.
The property has undergone a transformation in its living accommodation, providing a contemporary staircase to a first floor, where two rather generous bedrooms are served by a four-piece family bathroom.
The rooms nestle into their pitch-pine vaulted ceilings, with doors to further storage and an excellent area to play hide and seek for children.
Whilst the ground floor living space boasts a delightfully spacious kitchen/family room, alongside a further snug sitting room, a music room where jamming sessions are enjoyed and what was once the headmaster's office, is currently used as another bedroom.
Our vendors have improved so much of what isn't visible. Such as double glazed original windows, fully insulated and replaced the slate roof, internal insulation, electrics and central heating to name but a few.
Space is abundant in the rest of the ground floor, where youngsters once enjoyed the nurturing of a popular nursery education and more of the original character is displayed, both inside and out. The slate roof and the bell tower, including its original bell, have been restored. Features such as these and the commemorative plaque transport you back to the era in which the school would have been thriving. As you would expect, the outside space provides play areas and ample off-road parking.
Located close to the market town of Fakenham and all that the north Norfolk coast has to offer, the village has great amenities, with its fish and chip shop, pub, shop and post office - the sense of community abounds.
From its beginning as a school to its present day family home, if walls had ears, what stories would be told..? Now it is ready for new tales to be created and future enjoyment for its next custodian.
GREAT RYBURGH A small village, Great Ryburgh is four miles east of Fakenham.
Great Ryburgh is very active and has a community shop and post office, a farm shop and a church. There's also The Blue Boar Inn, a traditional English country inn and restaurant offering bed and breakfast, with low-beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace in the bar.
The village is also within easy access of King's Lynn and Norwich both of which have mainline rail links to London.
Coast or country? If your heart is set on the gentle bustle of a market town, but within easy reach of the sea, Fakenham is top of the list. While sandy beaches are just ten miles away, the market town is perfectly positioned halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich with easy reach to Holt and Swaffham, making for an easy commute.
Out of working hours, there's plenty to keep you entertained including the thriving independent Central Cinema, a perennial favourite with locals. Enjoy a fun glass-blowing session with the kids at Langham Glass, reconnect with nature at Pensthorpe or blow the cobwebs with a walk at nearby Sculthorpe Moor.
For something fancier, dress up to the nines and enjoy a day out and a flutter at Fakenham Racecourse, or team up with your playing pals for a round at Fakenham Golf Club, set in and around the racecourse. And Thursford is just four miles away with its magnificent collection of steam engines and organs - a visit to its Christmas spectacular gives a West End theatre excursion a run for its money.
Both Great Rybrugh and Fakenham are brilliant locations, exquisite properties waiting to be rediscovered and a growing band of entrepreneurial businesses, this area is enjoying a renaissance and offers a superb place to call home.
