About this property
Brown & Co. offers a spectacular, detached residence on a generous plot of approximately 1.81 acres in Castle Rising, one of West Norfolk's most historic and desirable villages. The original house has modern additions and is now a substantial dwelling, approximately 5200sqft / 483m2. Additionally, there is a detached, three bedroom single storey annexe and very versatile outbuilding all in a location surrounded by woodland adjacent to King's Lynn Golf Club.
Castle Rising is a picturesque village nestled in West Norfolk countryside and is one of the most desirable in the area. This quaint village is renowned for its historic Castle Rising Castle, a striking Norman fortress that stands as a testament to the village's rich history. The impressive earthworks are some of the finest in the country and locals and visitors alike enjoy this ancient monument. The village exudes a timeless charm and is very traditional, with some charming period property, tea room and newly refurbished public house, The Black Horse. The village is neighbour to the Sandringham Royal Estate and the beautiful Norfolk coast is easily reached as well as nearby, thriving town of King's Lynn which has a vast array of shops and mainline station to Ely, Cambridge and London.
To the front of the property there are two security gated accesses to the driveway. Inside, there a large tarmac parking area with access to double garaging which adjoins the annexe. There is gated access to a second tarmac parking area where the outbuilding is situated. The garden is in two main parts; at the rear of the house there is an amazing patio terrace overlooking the rear lawn, here there is area to entertain and relax with area for outdoor dining and hot tub house. Beyond this to the rear of this a second area which has served the family well as young ones have grown up with the owners saying it has been used as a cricket pitch, football pitch and campsite to name a few! Further more there is a garden area to the rear of the annexe allowing privacy and screened areas for composting and storage. Overall the plot extends to approximately 1.81 acres.
Inside the house offers elegant living over two storey's and is presented in an exemplary manner. There is an reception area that leads to a breathtaking reception hallway which is double height with custom oak staircase to first floor. There are a total of 6 reception rooms; a large sitting room, dining room, family room, office, games room and snug. The kitchen is open plan to breakfast room and there is a utility room. There are some superb features throughout the ground floor, the kitchen is particularly impressive and the games room and sitting room having folding doors to the rear patio terrace. Upstairs, the accommodation is equally impressive with 6 bedrooms, 3 of which have en-suite facilities and 2 with dressing rooms and even two balconies. One of the bedrooms currently has fitted bedroom furniture and is used as a dressing room.
A significant benefit to the property is the annexe. This detached, beautifully built addition to the main house offers the opportunity for multi generation living or an income stream for the house. An older annexe on site was remodelled and extended to a high standard which has never been occupied. This property has open plan living area with kitchen, 3 bedrooms, and bathroom and is a superb property in its own right.
The barn serves as useful storage for the property, it constructed in a stable block style with covered walkway to the front and 4 bays. There is a store and the remainder is currently divided into two sections and used as a play room and gym. There is potential here for a larger office space, if needed, or even further accommodation, subject to relevant planning permissions.
