Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Detached extended 4/5 bedroom period house with 3 reception rooms, courtyard garden and off road parking, close to the town centre.

The Old Forge is a detached period property extended in more recent times to now provide a spacious family house with interesting flexible 4/5 bedroom accommodation, a courtyard garden and off road parking.

The property is situated in a convenient and desirable location, close to the town centre, and benefits from 3 reception rooms, a first floor study, en-suite shower room, part traditional sash windows and timber panelled doors throughout.

Fakenham is often referred to as the “gateway” to North Norfolk. 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.

People come from far and wide on market and race days transforming the central market place. Fakenham boasts several 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.
