4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Introducing Silver Birch, a wonderfully stylish new home, offering a contemporary way of living in the heart of one of Norfolk's most historic villages.
The Castle ruins and the Cluniac Priory are very close by, as are scenic walks, quaint tea shops and a local pub which certainly offer an idyllic proposition for an assortment of buyers.
Silver Birch is arguably the most stand out home on Pales Green. Sophisticated electric gate vehicular access, and walled front garden offer privacy to a lawned area, allowing one to enjoy the warm front perspective of the home, perhaps whilst resting under the Silver Birch Tree.
Careful consideration has been taken to replicate the celebrated Bailey Gate arch, in the form of a cleverly crafted curved flint-render wall, guiding visitors to the front door.
Silver Birch is indeed one of a kind, a beautiful design, stylish and contemporary, appealing to those who are looking for a minimalistic approach to living and within a thriving community and close links to the Norfolk Coast and Sandringham Estate.
Through this door, you are welcomed into a bright hallway of calming and neutral tones. A sitting room off the hallway is a sensible separate reception room, although to the rear of the home is the prevalent kitchen, dining and seating area, certainly an impressive social space.
The bespoke modern kitchen with clean lines is complemented by a superb island and breakfast bar, acting as the perfect centre for everyone to gather whilst not excluding the host chef!
Stepping down in to the sitting area, with easy access to a patio area and fire pit, one can envisage late evenings spent here all year round.
It is fair to say that Silver Birch offers versatile living, and could easily be inhabited by a young family, or a holiday retreat or even somewhere pleasant and low maintenance to retire.
Outside, there is a very good size integral garage with power and light and a block paved drive to allow secure off road parking. Fully enclosed and private, entertaining to front or rear you will not feel overlooked.
LOCATION As you sit on the pretty village green and watch the world go by at a gentle pace, it's incredible to think that Castle Acre once played a major role in history. Yet the Norman ruins of Castle Acre Castle and Castle Acre Priory, respectively east and west of the village, are reminders of the village's grand ancestry when royalty would regularly arrive at the Bailey Gate and enjoy days spent hunting in the deer park.
The priory, now the charge of English Heritage, once housed a community of monks until Henry VIII disbanded monastic houses in 1537. You can still admire the beauty of the church gable and cloisters - run your fingers through the scented plants in the herb garden which the brothers would have used for daily cooking and healing centuries ago.
For a restorative moment today, head to The Ostrich which has been serving locals since the 1800s. If it's a quick bite to eat you are looking for then Whittles tea room is a must. Just around the corner is the Spar shop which stocks everything you could need. Enjoy a bite and a reviving glass and wander along the High Street to Castle Antiques & Collectables to discover a curio or chic addition for your home.
At the meeting point of the Roman Peddars Way, the River Nar runs to the south of the village, leading east to Newton and on to the hamlet of Fiddler's Green. Follow the Massingham Road north west and you'll happen upon Castle Acre Water Tower, saved by photographer Dennis Pedersen who bought the once derelict wreck for just £25,000 and turned it into a contemporary spaceship-inspired family home with panoramic views over barley fields.
Of course there are plenty of traditional period homes, many lining the village green where pretty flint cottages are covered in rose blooms in the height of summer, along with newer properties to be discovered. With a local store and Post Office, a popular caf鬠fish and chip shop and even a small, independent bookstore, it's easy to see why so many people
