Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A three bedroom former railway cottage in a secluded position with far reaching countryside views, and a short drive from both Burnham Market and the coast.

Undoubtedly the secluded location is a persuasive draw for this property. The wonderful far reaching views over open countryside in all directions are a real tonic. The property sits on a quiet country lane between Docking and Burnham Market, with popular coastal destinations also within convenient reach. The original cottage is thought to have been constructed circa 1850 in order to house the gate keeper who managed the level crossing on the site, for the line which at one time linked Burnham Market to Docking via Stanhoe, and formed part of the expansion of the railway throughout the county during this period. The pretty brick and flint stone section has been added to over time, with a large extension thought to have been added in the 1960's, thus improving the level of internal space considerably. The property briefly comprises entrance hall, double aspect kitchen dining room, triple aspect sitting room with wood burning stove, conservatory extension, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an en-suite cloakroom which with ease could be converted to a wet room. The delightful wrap around garden is enclosed on all sides, whilst a parking area is accessed through a five bar gate.
 

DOCKING Docking is a busy village with a small supermarket and post office, a fish and chip shop, blacksmith, a pub, a large village playing field, tennis court and bowling green. The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk Coast and its long, fine sandy beaches. Brancaster and The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club are about five miles away. There are two golf courses in Hunstanton, which is less than eight miles away. The Titchwell Bird Reserve, home to terns and waders is close by. The ultra-fashionable Georgian village of Burnham Market, Sandringham and the market towns of Fakenham and King's Lynn are also nearby.
