3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Positioned on the eastern side of north Norfolk's most celebrated village, this house represents a real opportunity to create a home in with you very own style and finish.
Set well back from the road, Number Eight is already an extremely well balanced house. On the ground floor there is an generous reception and dining room which occupies the greater proportion of this floor. Beside it is a kitchen with a second door out to the side of the house.
Upstairs there are three good double bedrooms that, thanks to the house's elevated position, enjoy delightful views over the rooftops of Burnham Market. In addition there is a large family bathroom on the first floor, that these bedrooms share, whilst downstairs there is a guest WC.
Outside there is gravelled parking both to the front and to the side of the house as well as a brick single garage set back. To the rear is a very pretty and enclosed garden that is lawned with mature borders and a summer house.
Number Eight is currently a house of its time with the layout being typical of the decade that it was built. However, there are a plethora of changes that could be simply adopted to transform it into a more modern and contemporary home.
Opening the kitchen up into the living space would transform downstairs and providing the living room with direct access to the garden would be straightforward but with immediate benefits. The space upstairs easily allows for adding an en-suite to one of the bedrooms whilst retaining a shared bathroom for the other two. The garage is currently ideal only for kayak and cycle storage but would lend itself to a home office or studio.
Finally, and with a plot of this size, there is obvious potential (subject to the usual consents) to extend to either the side or the rear and create additional living space or accommodation. With Number Eight your only limitation is the how far you can stretch your imagination.
BURNHAM MARKET Treasured memories of family holidays, a day at the world famous horse trials or a well-earned afternoon spent browsing its pretty boutiques - there are plenty of ways to experience Burnham Market, the jewel in north Norfolk's glittering crown.
Located close to the mouth of the River Burn, believed to be the source of its name, the village has long been associated with naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lived at nearby Burnham Thorpe.
A refined elegance permeates every aspect of village life, from the traditional homewares found at Uttings, the locals 'go-to' for household essentials, to sampling tasty treats at the Tuscan Farm Shop, Humble Pie Deli or Gurneys Fish Shop - this is a place to savour the finer things. For amenities, Burnham Market Stores is well-stocked and The Post Office, Burnham Motors Garage - for mechanical needs - and the petrol station are all also very useful. Eating out is also a joy with award winning Socius serving a British-inspired tapas menu on the edge of Foundry Place, and NoTwenty9's bar, restaurant and courtyard provides a relaxed spot to wine and dine on warm summer's nights.
Fashion counts on the Champagne coast and for chic style head to Anna's boutique or 'next gen' department store Percy Langley, make it fancy at The Hat Shop, go country at Gun Hill Clothing Company or casual at Joules or Jack Wills. For a little culture, peruse Burnham Market's art galleries - the Fairfax Gallery has been exhibiting for more than 20 years and Pococks the Artmonger has an eclectic display. Or if you have little ones in tow, don't miss a trip to Mable's - unmissable with its pretty pink frontage - where you can encourage their artistic talent with a pot painting session or treat them to a bag of traditional sweets.
It goes without saying that Burnham Market and its smaller siblings, Burnham Deepdale, Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy Staithe and Burnham Thorpe, are home to some of the finest houses on the coast. Whether your dream is a Georgian classic, a traditional cottage or a sleek, contemporary house, this is an incredible place to discover your forever home.
