A unique opportunity to purchase this charming five bedroom period house in need of improvement and refurbishment and located in a lovely position in the centre of this popular west Norfolk village. Including a lounge, family room and study with many period features, viewings are recommended.
SITUATION&LOCATION This Charming period house occupies a delightful position in the centre of the village overlooking an open green. The Spire of St George's Church provides a wonderful backdrop to the property which is believed to date back to the 1700s and was originally two cottages.
The property has been in the same ownership since the mid-1970s and over the years has been the subject of a renovation and improvement program including the construction of a two story rear extension. The original house is predominantly of chalk lump construction under a pantiled roof.
Unfortunately, following a family bereavement, the ongoing renovation works were not able to be completed and the property is now being sold in its current condition.
For a new purchaser, this property offers an excellent opportunity to complete the renovations and improvements and realise the aspirations that the vendor was unable to complete .
The location and character of this home, combined with the ample and adaptable accommodation, represents an excellent opportunity to those purchases seeking a home with potential and early viewings are recommended.
