About this property

Brown&Co offers a substantial, detached, Farmhouse in Gayton; a well-appointed and popular West Norfolk village having nearby amenities and easy access to the town King's Lynn and mainline train station to Ely, Cambridge and London.

Gayton is a highly sought-after West Norfolk village which lies approximately seven miles east of King's Lynn. The village is well known for its strong sense of community and selection of amenities which make the village one of the best appointed in the area. The recreation ground, football field and allotments are at the heart of the village as well as an award-winning butchers with deli counter, a garage with post office and sizeable general store, a fish and chip/takeaway and a historic pub, The Crown Inn. The existing school will be superseded in autumn 2022 when a brand new 210 pupil primary school and 56 place nursery open on a new site in the centre of the village. Gayton is easily reached from King's Lynn by road and bus route. The hospital is a straight run of just over six miles away and the town itself is approximately seven miles where there is a large selection of high street stores, independent retailers and main line station to Ely, Cambridge and London. The property is situated on Back Street and enjoys a fine view to the front overlooking fields including what are thought to be Iron Age earthworks as noted on the Norfolk Heritage Explorer map. The village centre can be reached on foot in approximately ten minutes via various routes depending on ones destination.

The Property
Manor Farmhouse dates from approximately 1780 with later additions; the property benefits from a major renovation carried out by our client in 2000 where the house was stripped to empty shell, re-modelled in some areas, extended and restored. The property is a substantial dwelling offering approximately 3473sqft/322m2 (subject to measured survey) of accommodation which includes five bedrooms. The property has a handsome front elevation with accommodation beautifully set out over two floors. The internal layout is particularly pleasing with the original house and later ground floor additions being divided by the kitchen, the heart of this family home. The house has an abundance of features of note including some fine original fireplaces, two formal entrances, some original sash windows with casement shutters, built in drinks cabinet and the warmth and feel that only a period home can have.

Briefly, the ground floor accommodation comprises, entrance to reception hallway, staircase to first floor, boot room with wc, study, snug/family room, open plan farmhouse kitchen breakfast room with double aspect views over gardens, formal dining room, vaulted drawing room, rear entrance hallway, rear stairs, garden room and utility room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms including the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en-suite with shower and bath, and guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, as well as a family bathroom and separate wc.

The gardens that surround Manor Farmhouse are an absolute delight to explore having been set out and planted with considerable skill and attention to detail. At the front of the property is a wall with planting and vehicular access at the side to the parking area. The driveway is walled to the western boundary and beyond the parking area is a stunning garden room and courtyard garden that leads through a pergola to the main cottage garden. This has a large patio and a central lawn surrounded by well stocked flower beds and borders, planted in quintessentially English cottage garden style. A path meanders around the rear of the beds allowing one to walk the circumference with views back to the house. Trees, hedging and large shrubs enclose the garden giving total privacy. It is also worth noting that the garden is 'dog-safe' for those with pets and there are also three brick-built storage outbuildings. The total plot extends to some 0.37 acres (subject to measured survey).
