2 Bedroom Cottage Sold STC
A two bedroom character property in the heart of the popular village of Dersingham which was once part of five original manor homes and has been a successful let for many years.
Built in 1671, 5F Manor Road was once part of Westhall Manor, now a neighbouring property, and is steeped in rich history.
The cosy and attractive cottage is perfectly placed to walk to local shops or explore the north Norfolk coast.
Once at the bustling centre of the village with the nearby stream supplying the wash house and blacksmith, the cottage, itself having previously been used as a workhouse, is now nestled down a peaceful lane, and although the surroundings may have changed over the years, its charm certainly has not.
A handy front porch leads to a compact kitchen with walk in pantry, and then onto an amazing large lounge filled with original beams and period inglenook fireplace, a real centrepiece to not just the room but the cottage. Patio doors then lead to the low maintenance rear garden.
Upstairs there is a spacious landing leading to two bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the second bedroom making a great home office or study.
Outside the shingled rear garden is accessed via patio doors from the lounge and is easily maintened, perfect for sitting out in and enjoying a glass of wine. There is also a handy carrstone outbuilding with electric that could be used as a workshop or hobby room.
The current owners have had the property let very successfully for many years and has recently achieved over £600 per calendar month. They have also carried out major works including complete reroofing, future-proofing the property for many years to come.
There is an opportunity to acquire two further cottages that are attached to 5F and could easily be converted back into one dwelling, subject to the relevant consents.
Rarely does an opportunity come around to own such a charming property in the centre of such a popular village on the edge of the north Norfolk coast.
DERSINGHAM 'The perfect village' is how many locals lovingly describe Dersingham which is well-serviced with a primary and junior school, GP surgery, library, Post Office, a butcher, supermarket, newsagent, garden centre, Chinese restaurant and a smashing fish and chip shop - all within a relatively compact 5.6 sq mile radius!
Coupled with this is the village's superb position, just 7.5 miles from King's Lynn with a direct rail line to London King's Cross, making it ideal for country-loving commuters. Alternatively, go east and discover north Norfolk's sandy beaches at Snettisham, Heacham or Hunstanton, just a few minutes' drive away.
With plenty of traditional carrstone cottages and large period properties, including a loop of highly desirable detached homes surrounding Fern Hill and along Shernbourne Road, there are newer developments including the ever-popular Sandringham Estate with a good mix of property sizes.
Dersingham has grand neighbours as the village borders the Sandringham Estate, home to the Queen's Norfolk residence, and the road follows onwards to Anmer where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a country home - Prince George was often spotted playing under the Duchess' watchful eye at Dersingham's Playground as a youngster, and the village's recreation ground is a central spot for many local community events.
There's easy access to Sandringham's trails from the edge of the village offering plenty of ways to explore the estate - escape the heat of the beach on a hot summer's day with a cooling cycle ride, or admire autumn's colourful display with a woodland walk that leads little ones to the children's play area and its impressive 26ft water tower. Build their knowledge of nature further at Dersingham Bog National Nature Reserve where they can adventure marshland, heathland and woodland.
Despite its grand neighbours, Dersingham has a homely feel with a strong community served by a newly renovated village hall with a regular calendar of social events. There are two thriving pubs, The Feathers and Coach & Horses, the latter of which is regularly celebrated by CAMRA for its award winning selection of traditional ales.
It's easy to see why Dersingham holds so much appeal, particularly among doctors and front-line workers working at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, just 7.5 miles away, offering a superb place to enjoy the best of coast and country.
