3 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
Weaver's Cottage is a beautifully presented three bedroom cottage with an abundance of period features as well as the potential to create further living and entertaining space.
Although called a cottage, on stepping inside you are immediately impressed by the proportions of the rooms that give this property an almost farmhouse feel. This is particularly apparent in the double reception room which, with its wide Georgian floorboards, exposed brickwork and expansive fireplace, is almost too grand to be found in a cottage! This room epitomises the feeling of welcome, in the summer the french doors open out to a west facing terrace letting the natural light flood in, but come the winter you can close the curtains, light the open fire and where better to snuggle down in cosy comfort.
On the other side of the central hall is a well appointed and cheerful kitchen which also has a door out to a second small east facing terrace, perfect for sitting out on a summer's morning and enjoying that first cup of the day.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two generous double rooms and one large single room, and all three share the family bathroom on the ground floor.
Follow the stairs back down to the ground floor and, very unusually for a cottage, the stairs continue down into a fully brick lined cellar, what better place to keep your wine cool throughout the year!
Weaver's Cottage has one final surprise, adjoining it at the rear is a completely separate room, possibly the old wash house but, with the plumbing already next door, and plenty of space for a double bed, this could easily convert into either a self contained ground floor bedroom suite or knock through and link it up, subject to the relevant permissions
In addition to the two terraces, and the off street parking space, there is a also a gated secret garden hidden away to the rear. This is a delightful space: very private and overlooking paddocks it is a proper sun trap and, with its wooden summer house, an idyllic space to unwind on a summer evening.
Weaver's Cottage was lovingly restored by the current owners and has been let as a highly successful holiday home ever since.
DOCKING Docking is arguably one of Norfolk's best hideaways, just four miles from the sea yet a comfortable breeze away from the coastal crowds in the heat of summer, and within a comfortable drive of the market towns of Fakenham and elegant Holt.
Dating back to Saxon times, Docking is one of Norfolk's highest points at 272ft and was once known as 'Dry Docking', because of its lack of drinking water. A well was sunk in the village in the 18th century and residents paid a farthing per bucket until a mains supply was installed in 1936. The small village played a key role in World War II when the RAF Docking airfield operated between 1940-1958, and nearby Docking Hall housed serving actors Richard Burton, Robert Hardy and Warren Mitchell during this time.
Today, a strong village community exists and Docking has a thriving nursery and primary school, and the heart-warming sound of young children enjoying playtime often echoes in the surrounding streets, as it has for centuries. Well-serviced, Docking also has a GP surgery, village store with Post Office, playing field, tennis court and bowling green, along with a popular fish and chip shop and good local, The Railway Inn.
Buyers are spoilt for choice with a wide range of property including traditional, brick and flint and whitewashed cottages, classic Georgian houses and a growing range of quality new-build homes. One of the latest additions is Four Miles, so called for its short distance from the coastline at Thornham and Brancaster, which offers a range of quality cottages, barns and apartments on generous plots, sympathetically designed to fit in with their country location.
