3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
Discretely positioned on the eastern side of Back Street, but only moments from the village green, this is an absolutely delightful three or possibly four bedroom cottage with an abundance of living space.
Approached via a gravelled drive way, the cottage is entered from the side. The ground floor provides a substantial amount of living and entertaining space which neatly divides in two. On one side is a bright and comforting double reception room with log burning stoves at either ends of the room making it incredibly cosy in winter time. On the other side of the house the room opens up to a double height central atrium and then through to a very sociable and practical kitchen, dining and family room with french doors out to the garden beyond.
The accommodation is flexible with two double bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed via a staircase from the double reception room, whilst the third bedroom suite is at the back of the house and accessed via a second and private staircase from the central hall. In addition there is a further room on the ground floor that could easily be used as a fourth bedroom or a home office.
Outside, and immediately to the rear, is a patioed area with pergola over it which gives this alfresco entertaining space a real sense of the Mediterranean. The remainder of the garden has been designed to be pretty and colourful, but easy to maintain. Whilst the garden is east facing, it is completely open to the south so naturally benefits from sunshine for most of the day. However, the best feature of this garden is that it has the additional benefit of the River Burn bubbling along at the bottom of it, perfect for a cooling summer paddle.
This cottage has been a much-loved home and could easily continue as such. The inside space is flexible enough for large family groups and whilst it is very much a charming and welcoming house during the winter months, the garden space also makes it perfect for fully enjoying our summertime.
SOUTH CREAKE A very popular rural village, South Creake has a pretty village green through which the River Burn runs.
The Ostrich pub has recently undergone a huge refurbishment and now provides not only an intimate village pub but also an outstanding restaurant. There is a homegrown fruit and vegetable stall, a children's play area, tennis courts and fishing lakes.
The village has a vibrant community and the busy village hall is home to many events.
South Creake is about five miles from the village of Burnham Market which is 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.
Fakenham and Wells-next-the-Sea both have primary and secondary schools.
South Creake is perfectly positioned for the beautiful north Norfolk coast.
