4 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
Wile down the road and this home gently reveals itself, yet swiftly its scale begins to become apparent. Step beyond the double five-bar gates and into the walled driveway and gaze upon Havana House.
Its double gable-end frontage is handsome and commanding with a symmetry which gives absolute 'curb appeal'.
No room feels like an after-thought or simply a gesture of a space, with each being well-proportioned and versatile.
The initial entrance porch is the ideal spot to remove muddy boots and outer layers after walking the dog or enjoying exercise at the local playing field.
On one side is the impressive combination of the open plan kitchen/breakfast room which leads to the large garden room and on through to the snug - with a feature fireplace which could make this area an ideal formal dining room.
These combined spaces are superbly sociable and suitable for year-round enjoyment entertaining family and friends. The views over the village church, known locally as the Cathedral of the Marshes, are particularly notable A photo taken by the current owners of the early morning mist rising from the paddocks was even featured in a local West Norfolk newspaper.
The sitting room is wonderfully generous and it's easy to imagine many happy seasonal gatherings or movie nights spent curled up on sofas and chairs.
The study to the rear is ample for a home office or quiet hobby room retreat.
Upstairs the accommodation does not disappoint and once again it is almost a house of two halves.
The main staircase leads to three double bedrooms which are served by the family bathroom with separate bath and shower - each enjoying tranquil rural field views.
A second staircase leads to the principal bedroom which occupies one wing with terrific privacy and of course has use of an en-suite with shower and spa-bath. This division of the first floor lends itself brilliantly to multi-generational and family living.
Outside the main lawned garden area is a blissful escape. It is incredibly quiet and private with a multitude of richly colourful mature plants. A terrace area from the french doors of the garden room continues into a courtyard patio area to the rear accessed by two further sets of french doors and is the ideal space for alfresco dining or a glass of wine watching the sun set.
A double garage neatly finishes this well-rounded residence.
TERRINGTON ST. CLEMENT Claimed to be the largest village in the county, the area backs onto the marshland of West Norfolk, where King John's crown jewels were said to be lost back in 1216.
Today the community comes together to make the most of the 14th century church, a primary and secondary school and everyday conveniences.
Terrington St Clement is 4.4 miles west of King's Lynn. This village has various shops, two doctors' surgeries, two pubs and two excellent schools - one primary and one secondary.
The huge church of St Clement is known as the Cathedral of the Fens. There is a half-hourly bus service to King's Lynn which has a good range of shops and superstores.
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.
With more than 400 listed buildings, two warehouses - Hanse House and Marriott's Warehouse - still stand in the centre of the town, along with King's Lynn Minster and Custom House. These have appeared as stars of the screen in numerous period dramas and it's not unusual to spot a camera crew and cast on location.
