££675,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

The perfect blend of character and modern design, this impressive property has been renovated throughout by the current owner. Once an orphanage housing children from the workhouse, the house is steeped in local history and abundant in period features; combined with modern comforts, Lyde Cottage is now a cosy and welcoming home.

The stunning bespoke kitchen was crafted and installed by a local firm, Kitchens Etc. and features a belfast sink, beautiful granite worksurfaces, a central island with inset hob, and a practical pantry, with the shaker style units all finished in Farrow & Ball Dovetail. There's plenty of space for a dining table, with the kitchen running across the rear of the original property. Beyond the kitchen, a sympathetic extension connects the former outbuilding to create a light and airy vaulted garden room with steel framed windows and doors which flood the space with natural light. The versatile garden room has potential for use as a downstairs bedroom with the option to convert the adjacent shower room to create an  en-suite, subject to the relevant consents. Two characterful reception rooms occupy the front of the property, flanking the wide hallway, with each having a wood burning stove. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility room.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms, with en-suite shower room to the principal. The spacious family bathroom includes a luxurious freestanding bath as well as a separate shower.

Outside, the rear garden has been landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind, and features a delightful dining terrace with doors opening out from both the garden room and kitchen/ Enclosed by a brick and flint wall, the garden is wonderfully sheltered, whilst still enjoying plenty of afternoon sunshine. To the front of the property there is access to the oil tank as well as off street parking space.  

DOCKING Docking is a busy village with a small supermarket and post office, a fish and chip shop, a pub, a large village playing field, tennis court and bowling green. There is a weekly farmers market with stallholders including a baker, fishmonger, a butcher and greengrocer, and with stalls selling cheese, preserves and cakes. The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk Coast and its long, fine sandy beaches. Brancaster and The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club are about four miles away. There are two golf courses in Hunstanton, which is less than eight miles away. The Titchwell Bird Reserve, home to terns and waders is close by. The ultra fashionable Georgian village of Burnham Market, Sandringham and the market towns of Fakenham and King's Lynn are also nearby.
