3 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale
Morning coffee in the garden, head to the nearby Royal Sandringham Estate or stunning north Norfolk coast, swing by Bircham Windmill to pick up a loaf of fresh bread on the way home and then stroll through the back paths for an evening meal at the nearby Ffolkes Arms, a 300 year old coaching inn. A day with all this whilst remaining within easy reach of the market town of King's Lynn and its amenities and a train line down to London King's Cross with Cambridge and Ely along the way. This is the life which 33 Church Road could offer you.
Cottages often conjure thoughts of character and cosiness and this is certainly no exception. From the moment you head through the little wooden gate and up the garden path there's a sense of invitation and a warm welcome.
Naturally, for such a location, the primary entrance is a useful space in which to remove the outer garments from the day's activities - conveniently, the bathroom, with over-bath shower, is just next door to get rinsed down and freshened up.
A galley kitchen, with shaker style units and exposed brick work, is a wonderfully bright and inspiring place and happily enjoys views over both garden areas to the front and side. The dining room comfortably accommodates a good sized table and additional furniture for family meals or entertaining visiting guests long into the evening hours.
The neighbouring sitting room is equally as generously proportioned with focal-feature fireplace adding to its snug and charmed feel - a great spot for a quiet read or a favourite television series.
Upstairs are three bedrooms with two being particularly spacious and benefiting from clever and superbly crafted in-built storage.
All three can, however, accommodate a double bed. The ceiling heights further accentuate these fabulous and individual rooms.
Outside the addition of a newly erected fence offers extra privacy and security for pets and children, as well as better defining space for garden furniture making it the perfect retreat on a sunny afternoon.
Despite being made up of only a few roads, it can be entertaining to navigate the village of Flitcham as historically many of the older houses would have been occupied by estate workers and - as such - it is understand that the property numbering is based upon the workers' pay roll number and so does not always follow the same logic as is applied to areas of newer development.
Whether a keen walker, rider, cyclist, wind surfer, artist, local history enthusiast, or all of the aforementioned, then this is a superb location for a whole host of lifestyles, activities and interests.
FLITCHAM A small west Norfolk village, Flitcham is situated 7 miles north east of King's Lynn and straddles the B1153, just to the north of the A148 Fakenham Road at Hillington.
The parish is known as Flitcham cum Appleton - although the latter now consists of a farm and a few cottages, whilst Appleton church is just a ruin.
Along with the villages of Anmer, West Newton, Wolferton and Shernborne, it forms part of the Royal Sandringham Estate and the original carved village sign was a gift of King George V in 1912.
Flitcham School and many of the cottages are built in the very attractive local "Carrstone". This distinctive brown stone is seen over a relatively small area of west Norfolk only. The village has a strong community with a football team (Flitcham and Hillington), a cricket club (Hillington and Flitcham), bowls club, and a vibrant community centre housed in the old Bell public house which is also home for various clubs including Good Companions, Keep Fit, and the village darts and dominoes teams. Flitcham has a thriving village school which also runs a mother and toddler group.
Perched on the banks of the River Ouse, King's Lynn has been a centre of trade and industry since the Middle Ages, and its rich history is reflected in the many beautiful buildings which still line the historic quarter.
Originally named Bishop's Lynn, during the reign of Henry VIII the town was surrendered to the crown and took the name King's Lynn. During the 14th century, Lynn was England's most important port, dominated by the Hanseatic League. Although the growth of London later eroded the port's importance, ship-building and fishing became prominent industries, the latter of which is documented at True's Yard Museum.
