Old Railway Yard, Burnham Market, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31

££1,995,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

The is a rare opportunity to own a nostalgic landmark building which is part of Burnham Market's rich social history.

Built in 1866, as the principal goods storage shed for the village's West Norfolk Junction Line between Heacham and Wells-next-the-Sea. Burnham Market was the largest and busiest of all its stations right up until the floods of 1953 which sadly brought about its early demise.

Thereafter the building was well-maintained and used as a storage shed for traction engines for more than 40 years until 1998 when it was acquired by the current owners who converted it into their main home - and what you see today.

The entrance of The Goodshed has all the proportions of a barn conversion with its double height and, being south facing, is naturally flooded with light. What is of particular interest is the delicate parquet flooring which was acquired from the bowling alley at nearby RAF Sculthorpe when the American airbase closed in 1992.

On the ground floor there is a substantial amount of living and entertaining space which includes a large kitchen, a family dining room and a drawing room - which was originally used as a snooker room when the current owners lived there. There is also a snug, a study and a utility room and guest WC.

Upstairs there are five double bedrooms and the two largest have en-suites, whilst the other three share a very generous family bathroom.

Outside, and behind electric gates, the garden is completely enclosed and totally private. It is mostly laid to lawn with patio areas off the front and back. There is also plenty of tarmacked off-street parking as well as a separate brick-built double garage.

The current owners converted The Goodshed and created their home 24 years ago and went onto raise their family there. They still look back with incredibly happy memories of living there and as such it clearly makes the perfect family home - or home-from-home. It has been let on an assured-tenancy for several years so it is now in need of a little cosmetic updating, but opportunities to own such an iconic building are always rare.

BURNHAM MARKET Treasured memories of family holidays, a day at the world famous horse trials or a well-earned afternoon spent browsing its pretty boutiques - there are plenty of ways to experience Burnham Market, the jewel in north Norfolk's glittering crown.

Located close to the mouth of the River Burn, believed to be the source of its name, the village has long been associated with naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lived at nearby Burnham Thorpe.

A refined elegance permeates every aspect of village life, from the traditional homewares found at Uttings, the locals 'go-to' for household essentials, to sampling tasty treats at the Tuscan Farm Shop, Humble Pie Deli or Gurneys Fish Shop - this is a place to savour the finer things. Eating out is also a joy with award winning Socius serving a British-inspired tapas menu on the edge of Foundry Place, and NoTwenty9's bar, restaurant and courtyard provides a relaxed spot to wine and dine on warm summer's nights.
Fashion counts on the Champagne coast and for chic style head to Anna's boutique or 'next gen' department store Percy Langley, make it fancy at The Hat Shop, go country at Gun Hill Clothing Company or casual at Joules or Jack Wills. For a little culture, peruse Burnham Market's art galleries - the Fairfax Gallery has been exhibiting for more than 20 years and Pococks the Artmonger has an eclectic display. Or if you have little ones in tow, don't miss a trip to Mable's - unmissable with its pretty pink frontage - where you can encourage their artistic talent with a pot painting session or treat them to a bag of traditional sweets.

It goes without saying that Burnham Market and its smaller siblings, Burnham Deepdale, Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy Staithe and Burnham Thorpe, are home to some of the finest houses on the coast. Whether your dream is a Georgian classic, a traditional cottage or a sleek, contemporary house, this is an incredible place to discover your forever home.
