Campingland, Swaffham, Norfolk, PE37

££425,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Every village or town has that one property that you walk past and wonder what is on the other side of the wall - White Cottage is just that house for Swaffham.

Sitting in an elevated position in the very heart of the town, White Cottage is far enough out not to hear the hubbub but close enough to wander into the centre and experience all the hustle and bustle the very popular town of Swaffham has to offer.

Entering the property you step into a large and welcoming hallway off which the utility room, kitchen-dining room and formal dining room stem from. The kitchen-dining room is a good size and currently has a dining room table that can sit six comfortably - with plenty of space to walk around. The room has large south facing windows that allow commanding views on to the garden. From here the property flows nicely into a garden room with double doors leading outside.

The home has a central formal dining room with an exposed brick and oak fireplace. Off this room is a study which could easily be another bedroom and a large family sitting room with a bay window and large windows that allow the room to be naturally lit throughout the day.

Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, the primary having a lovely en-suite with wood panelling throughout. The second bedroom has feature Gothic style arched windows with handmade shutters which overlook the church garden and benefits from a private en-suite.

Outside we find a south facing garden oasis. The shingle driveway meanders past front of the house and finishes to the rear hiding the cars from view, there is a raised lawned area and many mature shrubs and trees that give the garden added protection but hides the true size of this great plot of just under a third of an acre (smts). Hiding behind a wonderful flint-built wall, walking through an arch over a paved sun terraced is what could be the best hidden secret yet, a brick built garden room sitting under a pan tiled roof which, with the necessary building consent, could be any number of things - a one bedroom annex springs to mind.

White Cottage has been a much-loved family home for many years but is now in need of a little updating throughout. However, with just a few small changes in the main house, its layout could very simply be altered to a more modern use of the space. Whilst the house itself is not listed, the wall that sits next to the house is, so altering the internal walls should easily be done with the necessary building consent.

SWAFFHAM An historic and thriving market town, Swaffham is situated approximately 15 miles east of King's Lynn and approximately 30 miles from Norwich.

There is an extensive range of local amenities including a Waitrose, Tesco, Asda, further shops, pubs and restaurants, three doctors surgeries and primary, secondary and higher schools together with a variety of leisure and sports activities including an excellent golf club.

The town has an extremely popular Saturday market and many interesting historic buildings including the parish church and 'The Buttercross'.

The town also boasts a museum which focuses on many different and impressive parts of local history. One key gallery is The Carter Centenary, a chance to learn about Howard Carter, famous for the 1922 discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun - whose extended family lived in Swaffham.

The town offers a great hub for those who wish for a perfect family life. It has a series of schools for different ages, along with being relatively close to other schools including Greshams, Langley Hall and Beeston Hall School

It's also a good base to call home with local activities and entertainment including theatre, open gardens, nature reserves and more.

Swaffham is only around two hours by train to London, with great access to Cambridge and a short journey to Holt, Wells, Brancaster and Burnham Market - as well as the popular little seaside town of Sheringham. Norwich too is quick trip and provides an airport, offering direct flights to Amsterdam.
