Manor Road, Dersingham, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31

££450,000

3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

A Grade ll Listed property in the heart of the popular village of Dersingham which once formed one of five original manor homes in Dersingham. Built in 1671 Westhall Manor is an attractive terraced cottage perfectly placed to walk to local shops or explore the north Norfolk coast.

Once at the bustling centre of the village with the nearby stream supplying the wash house and blacksmith, the cottage, itself having previously been used as a workhouse, is now nestled down a peaceful lane, and although the surroundings may have changed over the years, its charm certainly has not.

A warm welcoming entrance is met with a large dining room that serves as a wonderful centre point to the home with a large mantelpiece over the former fireplace, and original wooden ceiling beams. To the right of this room is the kitchen that has a working Rayburn that adds to the appeal of the property. There is also a handy utility room and access to the rear garden. To the left of the dining room you will find a large but cosy sitting room with a working open fireplace and handy cupboard space, and a recently renovated, well-appointed downstairs bathroom.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms across a large landing with access to a large loft room that runs the length of the property with four dormer windows, flooding in natural light.

Outside, the property has a low maintenance sun trap garden to the front, perfect for enjoying evening drinks, and a small rear courtyard, ideal if looking for a second home. Beyond the rear courtyard there are two carrstone outbuildings with power supply.

The current owners have created many happy memories by having the property as a second home across three generations but have also carried out major works including complete reroofing and fully boarding the loft creating a large useable space or even potential for further bedrooms (STPP).

There is an opportunity to acquire two further cottages that are attached to Westhall Manor and could easily be converted back into one dwelling, subject to the relevant consent.

Rarely does an opportunity come around to own such a charming property in the centre of such a popular village on the edge of the north Norfolk coast.


DERSINGHAM 'The perfect village' is how many locals lovingly describe Dersingham which is well-serviced with a primary and junior school, GP surgery, library, Post Office, a butcher, supermarket, newsagent, garden centre, Chinese restaurant and a smashing fish and chip shop - all within a relatively compact 5.6 sq mile radius!

Coupled with this is the village's superb position, just 7.5 miles from King's Lynn with a direct rail line to London King's Cross, making it ideal for country-loving commuters. Alternatively, go east and discover north Norfolk's sandy beaches at Snettisham, Heacham or Hunstanton, just a few minutes' drive away.

With plenty of traditional carrstone cottages and large period properties, including a loop of highly desirable detached homes surrounding Fern Hill and along Shernbourne Road, there are newer developments including the ever-popular Sandringham Estate with a good mix of property sizes.
Dersingham has grand neighbours as the village borders the Sandringham Estate, home to the Queen's Norfolk residence, and the road follows onwards to Anmer where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a country home - Prince George was often spotted playing under the Duchess' watchful eye at Dersingham's Playground as a youngster, and the village's recreation ground is a central spot for many local community events.

There's easy access to Sandringham's trails from the edge of the village offering plenty of ways to explore the estate - escape the heat of the beach on a hot summer's day with a cooling cycle ride, or admire autumn's colourful display with a woodland walk that leads little ones to the children's play area and its impressive 26ft water tower. Build their knowledge of nature further at Dersingham Bog National Nature Reserve where they can adventure marshland, heathland and woodland.

Despite its grand neighbours, Dersingham has a homely feel with a strong community served by a newly renovated village hall with a regular calendar of social events. There are two thriving pubs, The Feathers and Coach & Horses, the latter of which is regularly celebrated by CAMRA for its award winning selection of traditional ales.

It's easy to see why Dersingham holds so much appeal, particularly among doctors and front-line workers working at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, just 7.5 miles away, offering a superb place to enjoy the best of coast and country.
