Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming Grade II listed cottage dating back to the 17th century, in a popular village location. The property is one of the oldest in Sculthorpe and has been in the current owner's family for over 100 years. The accommodation is surprisingly generous and briefly comprises an entrance hall, kitchen, utility room, dining room, sitting room, conservatory and bathroom downstairs, with three bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. The cottage is set well back from the road in delightful gardens of around one third of an acre (stms), and backs onto open countryside.
The property would benefit from some modernisation and is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

SCULTHORPE Sculthorpe is a scattered village with two fine pubs, The Hourglass on one side of the A148 and Sculthorpe Mill on the other. It's very close to the busy market town of Fakenham with its supermarket and pedestrian shopping precinct, its Thursday Market and monthly Farmer's Market. Fakenham also has a good sports centre. Sculthorpe is ideally positioned for the North Norfolk Coast with its many attractions and golf courses. There's also the Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve run by the Hawk and Owl Trust to reintroduce native birds to the area and to protect the natural environment.
