3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Set in the heart of the royal Sandringham Estate, Station House is a stunning family home and a truly unique property. 'Rarely available' is a phrase used frequently by estate agents but in the case of Station House this can not be emphasised enough: this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to occupy an individual and historic home in a prestigious location. Positioned adjacent to the former Wolferton Railway Station, well known as the station used by the royal family en route to Sandringham up until the late 1960s, Station House, a Grade II Listed building, is a magnificent example of a beautiful home capturing the nostalgia of a bygone era. This impressive property occupies a fantastic spot adjacent to Natural England's reserve at Wolferton, and is well suited to such an idyllic setting.
On the initial approach to the property, the first glimpse of the house, framed by the impressive gated entrance hints at the striking home within. The covered entrance porch retains its original tiling and opens to the wide reception hallway; grand and yet welcoming, with beautiful tiled flooring and a splendid turning staircase rising to the first floor. The well proportioned and versatile accommodation continues into the two formal reception rooms positioned to the south easterly aspect; the dining room with high, coved ceiling and large picture windows looking out over the lawns, and the sitting room with its impressive turret. Taking advantage of this unique feature, the sitting room has been arranged with a small seating area within the footprint of the turret looking out over the lawns, and the room also includes an impressive fireplace and high, coved ceiling. Adjacent to the sitting room, a separate snug looks out over the garden to the rear and enjoys a south westerly aspect. Crossing the reception hall, the kitchen is set around a splendid oil fed Aga, set into the chimney breast, with a good range of fitted wall and base units and space for further appliances. Enjoying a real sense of space; the kitchen has a high vaulted ceiling and dual aspect windows, and adjacent is a separate utility room. To the rear is a wonderful triple aspect garden room with a two sets of french doors opening out to the terrace and a roof lantern flooding the south facing room with natural light, and providing a wonderful space to relax and enjoy the glorious outlook over the gardens and countryside towards Wolferton Church. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a WC with washbasin.
Moving up to the first floor, the outstanding uninterrupted views this property enjoys from all three bedrooms can truly be appreciated. The principal suite is a generously proportioned double bedroom with attractive fire surround, large windows with views towards the church, a sitting area within the turret space, and an en-suite bathroom which benefits from having a freestanding roll-top bath as well as a separate shower cubicle, WC and basin, and door leading into a dressing room. There are two further good sized double bedrooms as well as a separate bathroom, which again benefits from having a freestanding roll-top bath as well as a shower cubicle, WC and basin.
The delightful grounds are entered through the beautiful cast iron gate which is set between large impressive brick pillars topped with ornate stone pier caps onto the large gravelled driveway which offers ample parking space for many vehicles. The attached garage has a window and personal door leading out to the rear. The garden is enclosed on all sides, by a combination of brick walls and cast iron railings, with mature hedging to the front and side providing privacy. A separate pedestrian gate is also set between impressive brick pillars, crowned with lantern tops, providing an alternative access point and a further striking approach to the property. Beautiful planted shrubs surround the terrace seating area to the rear of the property, and the sprawling lawns are combined with some well positioned mature plants, shrubs and trees. Making the most of the tranquil setting, the generous gardens provide many quiet and sunny areas from which to enjoy the sense of bringing the surrounding countryside into the garden.
WOLFERTON The village of Wolferton is situated 7 miles north of King's Lynn and just 2 miles from Sandringham, and is perhaps best known as the location of Wolferton Railway Station which was used by several generations of the royal family when visiting Sandringham House. This small village is also home to the 13th century St Peter's church. The village is in a peaceful rural spot, yet is conveniently placed for access to King's Lynn, where there is a main rail link to London, and for the picturesque North Norfolk coast which is only a short drive away.
