Full description

Location Dereham is a thriving market town situated just off the A47 between Norwich and Kings Lynn, serving the surrounding rural community. The town has a traditional market place with surrounding shopping area along with schools for all ages. There are a number of excellent community facilities which include Tennis Club, Football Club and Golf Club, along with a small cinema. Dereham is also the home of the Mid-Norfolk Heritage Railway, which joins with the national rail network at Wymondham.

The town is situated just 15 miles west of Norwich and within striking distance of North and West Norfolk. The City of Norwich is the local provincial capital, offering some of the UK's top shopping, with two indoor malls, a daily market and a wide variety of other shops and stores and an excellent cultural life, along with many historic buildings, restaurants, bars and a choice of both theatres and cinemas. 

Description Situated in an advantageous position in central Dereham, this period property has an impressive landscaped frontage with in-and-out driveway and comprises a spacious period double-fronted house with cellar and generous rear gardens, together with a self-contained annexe and potential second annexe to one side. To the other side there is a courtyard of six self-contained apartments and cottages with excellent letting potential, five of which are included in the sale. The house itself enjoys "grand" proportions with a range of period features and high ceilings, complimented by the formal gardens to the front and good size rear gardens with complete with clasically styled Gazebo.

This property will ideally suit buyers looking for a period home with income potential. The current owner has run a bed and breakfast business from the house in recent years but it would revert to use as a family home with little or no adaptation. The annexes, cottages and apartments have excellent letting potential and there is the opportunity to make further investment by upgrading and improving or to divest by splitting and selling some of the smaller properties.

Early inspection of this desirable opportunity is strongly recommended.
