4 Bedroom Town House For Sale
"Holt House has been a labour of love to restore....."
We are delighted to be marketing 'Holt House' in the market town of Fakenham. The period property is situated close to town and amenities and should be viewed to fully appreciate the attention to detail in its immaculate restoration.
Entering the house via its recessed front door into the reception hall, you are instantly aware of the grandeur 'Holt House' has to offer. The front sitting room is a delightfully sociable room with its double glazed recessed windows and pretty fireplace, further complemented by the decorative cornice, ceiling rose and substantial chandelier.
To the centre of the property is the more contemporary kitchen family room, fitted with a range of base units with granite work surfaces and a beautiful peninsular housing the inset sink and drainer. This room boasts space for family and friends to entertain and leads to the rear lobby and ground floor shower room. The second reception room to the rear of the house is another generous space and gives access via its french style doors to the rear courtyard garden. For those multi-generational buyers, the second reception room and shower room, could facilitate ground floor living space for family.
The first floor presents four double bedrooms, with one being enhanced by its en-suite bathroom and the other three rooms served by the family shower room. The principal bedroom features dual sash windows looking out to the front and is complemented by an adjoining room, ideal as a walk-in wardrobe, nursery or study, or with potential to add an en-suite, subject to the relevant consents.
The outside of the property can be independently accessed via a further door to the front leading to a passageway that leads onto the generous enclosed, courtyard garden space.
'Holt House' has been a labour of love to restore and our vendor has been meticulous in its specification. To avoid disappointment, early viewing is recommended.
FAKENHAM Coast or country? If your heart is set on the gentle bustle of a market town, but within easy reach of the sea, Fakenham is top of the list. While sandy beaches are just ten miles away, the market town is perfectly positioned halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich with easy reach to Holt and Swaffham, making for an easy commute.
Out of working hours, there's plenty to keep you entertained including the thriving independent Central Cinema, a perennial favourite with locals. Enjoy a fun glass-blowing session with the kids at Langham Glass, 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. And Thursford is just four miles away with its magnificent collection of steam engines and organs - a visit to its Christmas spectacular gives a West End theatre excursion a run for its money!
Make time to explore the Fakenham Lancaster Heritage Trail, a series of 32 plaques which bring the town's industrial past to life. Originally a vibrant agricultural centre, during the 19th century Fakenham rose to prominence as a major centre for printing - spot the printing blocks which have been set in the surface of the market place and date back to 1250. The stallholders still set out their wares every Thursday with a farmers' market on the last Saturday of the month.
From grand homes and character cottages to quality new-build houses, Fakenham has an excellent choice of property for all budgets, and on the outskirts of town there are plenty of period properties set on large plots for those looking for a little more space.
Foodies 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. Save the washing up and dine out at The Ostrich Inn, which has been serving locals since 1841, or indulge at Sculthorpe Mill, which was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2022, on the edge of town.
A brilliant location, exquisite properties waiting to be rediscovered and a growing band of entrepreneurial businesses, Fakenham is enjoying a renaissance and offers a superb place to call home.
