4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow For Sale
Approached via its own private drive, Whippets is a five bedroom home with flexible living and entertaining space.
The property is arranged in an 'L' shape, the entrance hall is both wide and welcoming and all the principal rooms lead from it with all the living and entertaining space being positioned to take maximum advantage of the southern part of its garden.
The kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the conservatory are all south facing giving the property a real sense of light and space.
There are a total of five bedrooms albeit one is currently arranged as the, now essential, home office whilst another is used as a morning room and has french doors out to the rear garden. The primary bedroom is a very generous double with a large en-suite bathroom whilst the other bedrooms share an equally considerable family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.
Finally, in addition to the kitchen and adjoining dining room there is also a very useful utility room with its own entrance.
Outside and to the front there is a delightful south facing garden as well as plenty of gravelled off street parking and a double garage, whilst to the rear of the property is a substantial and very private lawned garden with mature borders.
Whippets has been a much loved home for the current owners for almost 15 years and as such it has been extremely well cared for, however it would now benefit from a little cosmetic updating.
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.
SERVICES CONNECTED Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
