4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Sowerbys are delighted to bring to the market this wonderfully well-proportioned home in the heart of a picturesque and historic rural location.
This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a property on a generous plot in the very desirable village of Oxborough. Although dated throughout there is fabulous potential to create a superb and enviable residence within its sizeable footprint.
To the ground floor is an entrance hall that doubles as a garden room leading to a semi open plan living room/dining room, the latter of which is also then connected to the rear conservatory, and combined these three create a terrific space for entertaining. Additionally there is an open plan kitchen/breakfast room, wet room, and a utility room which benefits from brilliantly practical through-access from front to back.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom stretches the full depth of the property and enjoys the use of an en-suite shower room and impressive views over the large garden and fields beyond.
Outside the home sits comfortably within its plot giving it the balance of both commanding frontage and ample garden to the rear. Furthermore, there is a double garage accompanied by a workshop that is almost equal in its proportions and together, make for hugely practical and versatile spaces.
Overall, the property has a great deal to offer any prospective buyer and although no work seems immediately required, with a little imagination it could undergo a transformation that sees it continue its journey as a spectacular home in a fabulous location, long into the future. Sowerbys highly recommends first-hand viewing to fully understand everything there is to be appreciated.
OXBOROUGH Oxborough is a rural mid-Norfolk village, 17 miles from King's Lynn. It's famous for its church, St. John's, and the manor house Oxburgh Hall, ancestral home of the Bedingfeld family, now owned by the National Trust. In 1948, the tower and spire of St. Johns collapsed onto the church destroying the south side of the nave. The south chapel contains a rare undamaged terracotta tomb, which is unique in England, and evidence of the Catholicism of the Bedingfeld family. Oxburgh Hall was built in 1482 by the Bedingfield family, who still live there. It was built as castles were beginning to fall out of fashion, and the king - unusually - gave permission for castellation. The building is fortified with a moat. It is open to the public as it is now owned by the National Trust. The village has a pub named after the Bedingfield family The Bedingfield Arms. King's Lynn is a busy town with a wide range of shops. It also has hourly trains to London King's Cross via Cambridge.
