Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An extensive historical property in the heart of South Creake.
This former village pub is in need of complete renovation, having closed in the 1960s and been used as a private dwelling since. The accommodation is generous and currently comprises five bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, with the potential to create a further en-suite or develop the existing accommodation. The ground floor offers ample reception space, with a sitting room, drawing room, conservatory, study and kitchen/dining room, with many of the rooms retaining original period features. The property would potentially lend itself to being converted into more than one dwelling, subject to the relevant planning consents.
Outside, the property enjoys a private rear garden which is delightful, having the River Burn flowing through it, and the property also benefits from several outbuildings, off road parking and a cart shed.
This wonderful property is steeped in history and represents a fantastic opportunity to create a stunning home.
 

SOUTH CREAKE South Creake is a very popular rural village with a pub and village green. It's about five miles from the village of Burnham Market, famous for its interesting shops, restaurants and pretty village green and six miles from the market town of Fakenham with its wider range of facilities and supermarkets. There are thriving farmers markets in North Creake and Fakenham and South Creake is perfectly positioned for the North Norfolk Coast with its long sandy beaches, walks and wildlife. Burnham Market has a range of amenities including doctors' and dental surgeries, pharmacy, primary school and post office, an abundance of small village shops including bakery, butcher, fresh fish shop, beauty and hair salon, bookshops, art galleries, a good wine merchant, Satchells, and a popular delicatessen, Humble Pie. Fakenham and Wells-next-the-Sea both have primary and secondary schools.
