Situation
Sedgeford is a thriving, small village a short drive from the sea at Hunstanton and 5 minutes to the A149 which takes you to King's Lynn with its mainline station to London some 16 miles away. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, recorded in the Domesday Book 1086 and still producing fascinating historical research through a long term and on-going project known as SHARP (Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project). For a village of this size, there is plenty going on and has the added benefit of a busy village hall, well respected pub and primary school.

Peddars Way, a long distance Roman road, runs through the top end of the village, across the old Sedgeford railway line and directly onto the Norfolk Coastal path which leads westwards through the lovely coastal villages of Holme, Thornham, Brancaster, the Burnhams and onwards to Cromer. East of Sedgeford is the village of Docking with plenty of amenities including shop, post office, surgery, takeaway whilst to the east is the much visited attraction, Norfolk Lavender which also has a farm shop, garden centre, shop and café.

Description
Victoria House is a spacious house constructed circa 1900 as 2 properties but now offers generous family accommodation set in beautifully maintained gardens with southerly views across paddocks. There are 3 reception rooms on the ground floor, 2 with French doors out onto the garden, all double glazed. The kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of fitted units with central island unit and an oil-fired Aga for cooking only, built-in pantry and ample room for a table and chairs. A wide opening from the kitchen leads through into the south-facing sitting room/day room making this whole area the hub of family life. The dining hall comfortably seats 10 with the formal drawing room off making the house a wonderful entertaining space.

On the 1st floor, the master suite comprises a good sized bedroom with dual aspect, a separate shower room and a large dressing room/bedroom 5. There are a further 3 double bedrooms, family bathroom and study/child's bedroom.

Originally 2 cottages, the property offers potential to reconfigure the accommodation into a 3 bedroom house with attached 2 bedroom cottage for letting out or for dependent relatives. With existing off street parking to either side, it would also be easy enough to split the garden, providing more than adequate outside space for both properties.

Outside
To the east side of the house is the integral single garage with off street parking to the front and further off street parking to the west side. Side access gates take you into the rear garden which provides plenty of interest with a sunny main terrace and steps down to the lawn with a further terrace to the west, greenhouse and timber shed. The shaped beds are stocked with many attractive mature shrubs and seasonal planting with walkways all around and a good-sized vegetable patch to the south. The views across the garden to paddocks and woodland beyond, give this village property a lovely rural feel.
