2 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold
Close to the market town of Fakenham's amenities, Heath Rise sits in a slightly elevated position, away from the main road.
The garden and drive have been landscaped to provide a brick weave drive leading to the single detached garage. An artificial grassed area to the front, behind the low walled front boundary, and there is an enclosed, lawned, rear garden.
The addition of the beautifully light conservatory allows a comfortable space for dining and is open plan to the kitchen. The sitting room is made cosy by its' coal effect gas fire. The recently modernised shower room, serves the two bedrooms.
Our vendors have also changed the internal doors and floor coverings and decorated in more recent months, ensuring this home is ready to move into and for a new owner to utilise their own stamp of creativity.
Tucked away, in a desirable position, Heath Rise is perfect for retired buyers or those looking for a single storey sanctuary, with the town close by and all that north Norfolk has to offer.
FAKENHAM 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!
Make time to explore the Fakenham Lancaster Heritage Trail, a series of 32 plaques which bring the town's industrial past to life. Originally a vibrant agricultural centre, during the 19th century Fakenham rose to prominence as a major centre for printing - spot the printing blocks which have been set in the surface of the market place and date back to 1250. The stallholders still set out their wares every Thursday with a farmers' market on the last Saturday of the month.
From grand homes and character cottages to quality new-build houses, Fakenham has an excellent choice of property for all budgets, and on the outskirts of town there are plenty of period properties set on large plots for those looking for a little more space.
Foodies are spoilt for choice with locally farmed meat, produce and award winning Mrs Temple's cheese available to fill your pantry at nearby Walsingham Farm Shops. Save the washing up and dine out at The Ostrich Inn, which has been serving locals since 1841, or indulge at Sculthorpe Mill, which was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2022, on the edge of town.
A brilliant location, exquisite properties waiting to be rediscovered and a growing band of entrepreneurial businesses, Fakenham is enjoying a renaissance and offers a superb place to call home.
