Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to offer a most fascinating conversion of a Grade II listed detached former stable block with surrounding cottage gardens to the market. First-hand inspection is recommended to gain a full appreciation of this spacious and substantial detached property complete with parking, double garage and studio workshop. Inside, the property comprises a reception hallway, sitting room, kitchen, study/library and WC to the ground floor, as well as an impressive 7 x 5 garden room which forms the centrepiece of the property with multi-fuel stove and views over the gardens. Upstairs, there are currently three bedrooms, however the master bedroom is 11m in length and could be subdivided into further bedrooms and bathroom facilities if required (subject to relevant consents being granted). Furthermore, there is a family bathroom, with the second bedroom having an en-suite and dressing. The property is heated by air source heat pumps with a further cooling and heating air conditioning unit supplying the workshop. Within the building there are some fascinating original features including some wonderful exposed brickwork and the retention of some original stable dividers constructed from cast-iron and timber cladding. The property is situated in Narborough which is within easy reach of major routes in and out of Norfolk along the A47 which leads from Norwich to Peterborough. Cambridge is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, Norwich 40 minutes and King's Lynn just 15 minutes away with train links to London and Cambridge on an hourly service.  

NARBOROUGH Narborough is a small village about eleven miles east of King's Lynn on the Norwich road. It was a major settlement around 300AD but was destroyed in local tribal battles. There is Narborough Hall, a major country house with regular art exhibitions. It also has the famous trout lakes and trout smokery. It has a post office, a first school, Chinese restaurant and the church of All Saints. The river Nar passes through the village offering renowned chalk stream trout fishing and beautiful river walking including the picturesque Nar Valley Way which continues through to Castle Acre and beyond.
