Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Harpley is a largely unspoilt sought after village located in North West Norfolk about 9 miles East of King's Lynn and similar distance to Fakenham. This is a most convenient location to access the surrounding delightful countryside with Burnham Market about 9 miles and the renowned North Norfolk coast and beaches. The Houghton Hall estate neighbours to the North, the Royal Sandringham estate is to the West and Holkham Hall estate to the North also.

Hillside occupies a delightful position in the centre of the village on the corner of Short Tree Lane in mature surroundings. The house is believed to date from possibly the 17th Century with later 18th Century alterations and enlargements. Constructed in flint faced walls with red clay brick quoins under a pitched clay pan tiled roof. The house was acquired some 40 years ago and was fully renovated and extended by the current owners and is offered to the market in well maintained order. Of note are the outbuildings affording potential for conversion (subject to planning) including the walled remains of a former barn. The gardens extend to the East of the house and are well screened and private benefiting from all day sun. The opportunity of acquiring a village centre residence with adjacent paddock is rare, making Hillside a particularly unique prospect and eminently suitable for those seeking equestrian facilities.
