Introduction
Brown&Co are delighted to offer a four bedroom, two bathroom, extensively refurbished, period home on Bailey Street, Castle Acre to the market. Properties on Bailey Street are highly sought-after and rarely seen on the market and this property, a brief walk to the Bailey Gate and village centre, is an exceptional opportunity to buy in this historic village. The property was acquired and fully renovated on 2017 with great attention to detail and style and has the benefit of parking, a detached barn and incredible 'secret' patio terrace with elevated view over the impressive earthworks of Castle Acre Castle

Location
Castle Acre is a historic village in the Nar Valley close to the River Nar; it is arguably the most desirable residential location to reside in West Norfolk - and for good reason. The village has a quintessentially English feel with a village green, mature trees, tea room and village pub at its heart. What sets it apart from similar villages is that it is also dominated by two ancient monuments; Castle Acre Castle and Castle Acre Priory. The castle is home to an ancient Moat and Bailey Gate, and some of the most impressive medieval earthworks in the country. The Priory is managed and maintained by English Heritage and is the huge ruin of a Priory complex one can explore. The village pub is The Ostrich with beer garden and excellent food and nearby Newton George & Dragon, further afield there are a number of excellent pubs such as The Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham. The village is also well serviced by a local convenience store, fish and chip take away and café all a short walk from the property. Nearby, Swaffham is a thriving market town with a Waitrose supermarket and Kings Lynn (13 miles) has a hospital and mainline station to London, Ely and Cambridge. The property is located on Bailey Street which leads from the ancient Bailey Gate monument down to the River Nar.

The Property
The property has access from Bailey Street via a small set of steps which leads to an elegant reception hallway with oak flooring, staircase to the first floor, door to the boot and utility room and access into the living accommodation. This is laid out in an open plan style with various seating and dining areas, wood burning stove and restored wood block flooring. Beyond this is the kitchen which is also partially open plan to the living space and has contemporary fitted kitchen and appliances and access to the rear staircase. Upstairs there are a total of four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms, including the master suite are accessed from the main staircase in the reception hallway. The other two bedrooms are accessed from the rear stairs and have the use of the family bathroom. Also the master bedroom and bedroom two have an inter-connecting door.

Outside there is access over a driveway to a parking area and gate to the garden which has been beautifully paved and planted. The garden leads to the rear where there is a 'secret' patio terrace which quite simply needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Here the owner created a water feature, outdoor seating and dining area and patio with further planting and outstanding view of the earthworks of the Castle over to the Nar Valley.

Barn
Also included with the property is a detached barn. This is a two storey building used for storage on the ground floor. There is a door from the garden which leads to an entrance area with spiral staircase to first floor, wc and shower room. The first floor has been used as a playroom and store. It is fair to assume that the barn has further potential in its uses and may have development potential, subject to relevant planning permissions, but, this has not been explored by our client.

Works carried out in 2017 included complete internal strip out and refit, replaster, rewire and new plumbing.
As is typical of many Norfolk cottages a pedestrian right of way exists at the back of the house.

Historical Interest
The property was formerly a shop premises and retains the shop style windows to the front elevations and we include a period photo for historical interest. We understand it was 'Laddiman's' sweet shop in the 40s. It closed as a shop in the late 60s/early 70s + has been a dwelling ever since.
