Shereford Road, Hempton, Fakenham, Norfolk, NR21

££450,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow For Sale

This delightfully located property has been home to its owner for some fifty years, having been built for them in 1971. Enjoying superb views over open countryside, the property is set in wonderful dog walking territory, with a village pub and access to the nearby market town and arterial routes including the north Norfolk coast.

Whilst the property would benefit from modernisation, the kitchen/breakfast room is generously sized for entertaining, providing space for cooking and dining.

The sitting room follows the same generous proportions and the delightful bow window allows those seated beside it, a view across the rear garden, taking in the bird life. The bedrooms are all doubles and two of them enjoy the views to the front aspect.

The property was ideal for our sellers to raise a family who enjoyed being close to nature with the River Wensum nearby, making for excellent riverside walks, canoeing and fishing, plus an alternative picturesque walk into town. The local pub is also in walking distance across the local common.

The bungalow presents a rare opportunity for those buyers looking for a home with the potential for modernisation and extension, subject to all necessary consents. Its plot size is generous and sits in a slightly elevated position, taking in the open views.

25 Shereford Road is offered for sale with no onward chain.

HEMPTON Bordered on the south by the River Wensum, Hempton Marsh Nature Reserve consists of 29 acres of ancient wet meadow and mature woodland. Part of the Wensum Valley Special Area of Conservation, bird watchers will enjoy this area as many wild birds can be spotted.

Less than 2 miles away is the market town of Fakenham, out of working hours, there's plenty to keep you entertained including the thriving independent Central Cinema. Enjoy a fun glass-blowing session with the kids at Langham Glass or go wild and 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, or head to Fakenham Fairways Golf Driving Range, which has a PGA professional on hand for some expert coaching.

Foodies too 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. Or save the washing up and dine out at The Ostrich Inn, which has been serving locals since 1841 and was recently refurbished by local builder Grocott & Murfit, or indulge at Sculthorpe Mill, which was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2022, on the edge of town.

If your heart is set on countryside living, but within easy reach of the sea, Hempton is ideal. While sandy beaches are just ten miles away, the village is perfectly positioned halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich with easy reach to Holt and Swaffham, making for an easy commute.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity, drainage and oil fired central heating.
