Sowerbys are delighted to offer a fine detached residence positioned on what must be one of Gayton Road's finest garden plots of approximately one acre of grounds (sts) including a hard tennis court.

Briefly the property comprises; entrance porch, reception hallway, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, WC and impressive and very spacious conservatory/garden room to the ground floor. Upstairs there are five bedrooms (two are linked), family bathroom, WC and en-suite facility to the master bedroom. Outside there is a superb triple garage facility and there is potential to enlarge the property by extension should one wish, subject to relevant planning consents being granted. The gardens are designed around entertaining with an expansive patio terrace and decking with elevated views over the garden which include a re-surfaced and floodlit hard tennis court, glazed kontiki style summerhouse and swim spa.

Viewing strictly by appointment only. 

KING'S LYNN Located on the banks of the River Ouse, the popular town of King's Lynn is steeped in maritime history, with its fishing port still widely used today. From the much filmed old medieval centre around King's Lynn Minster to the redeveloped and pedestrianised Vancouver Shopping Centre. The town has an excellent variety of shops, supermarkets, places to eat, ten-pin bowling alley, swimming pool, football club, cinema, theatre and three impressive churches. There are many services within the town including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, police station, fire station, primary schools, three secondary schools, college and a library. The town holds weekly markets and many events throughout the year. King's Lynn is connected to the local cities of Norwich and Peterborough via the A47 and to Cambridge via the A10. There is a mainline rail link via Cambridge to London King's Cross, approx. 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Sandringham Estate is about 5 miles away with attractive walks through the woods. Slightly further away is the North Norfolk Coastline with its beautiful long, sandy beaches.
