Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Wonderful period house with adaptable 3/4 bedroom accommodation, private gardens and garage in a desirable part of town.

DESCRIPTION
The Gables is a prestigious detached period house with private gardens and garage, enjoying a unique, secluded location within a conservation area and just a 2 minute walk to the market place.

The property has brick and part rendered elevations under a pantiled roof and stands in delightful, traditional gardens with a double garage, driveway to the front and a further parking area at the rear. Gladstone Road is considered one of the most sought-after addresses in Fakenham, being a private, no-through road that combines the tranquillity of a setting close to the church, with easy access to the town centre, library, shops and public transport. The Gables retains many period features including fireplaces, doors, sash windows, ceiling cornices and roses, with the benefit of a sympathetic modernisation carried out by the present owner some years ago.

There is potential for extension or development to the side (subject to the usual permissions) as well as a traditional floor plan that also lends itself to flexibility to provide a fourth bedroom. All fitted carpets, floor coverings and blinds are included in the sale.

SITUATION
The market town of Fakenham is on the banks of the River Wensum and nestling between the historic city of Norwich and the medieval port of King’s Lynn, Fakenham is also only a short drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coastline some 11 miles away.

Once renowned for its successful printing industry, Fakenham is now better known for Norfolk’s only national hunt racecourse and its popular weekly markets, flea market and public auctions in the local sales room. Fakenham boasts 3 supermarkets, library, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, a good selection of restaurants, bowling alley, cinema and infants’, junior and high school with 6th form college. Surrounding areas are all well serviced by bus routes with direct rail links to Cambridge and London from King’s Lynn and Norwich.
