Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Recently refurbished unique converted Victorian railway building with 5 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms in attractive grounds.

This is a one-off opportunity to own your own personal piece of railway history. A unique, sympathetically converted and recently refurbished Victorian goods shed with its original wooden canopies to either side, exposed roof trusses and tall round headed windows, set around landscaped gardens with 5 double bedrooms, 4 reception rooms and a magnificent vaulted entrance hall. The property is situated at the end of a short cul-de-sac on the edge of the edge of Burnham Market, a much sought after part of North Norfolk.

The edge of village location provides easy access to all the amenities Burnham Market has to offer but is far enough away from the bustling, seasonal hubbub of the village centre to offer some relative peace and quiet. The current owners carried out the conversion on this light and airy property to a very high standard in 1996 to make a very comfortable family home although it is considered that the location, outside space and square footage of this property could lend itself, with modifications, to becoming an upmarket B&B or boutique hotel (subject to the usual permissions).

Burnham Market is a thriving village, close to the North Norfolk Coast, having a full range of shops which include, a delicatessen, a wine merchants, bakery, butchers, chemist, boutiques, Post Office, antiques shop, doctor's surgery, dentist, jewellery shop, garage, a fine parish church and a range of hostelries including the famous "Hoste Arms" hotel. Burnham Market centre is situated around a village green with mainly Georgian houses in what is considered an extremely desirable village.

The Burnhams comprise six villages situated on the North Norfolk Coast. This is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with miles of unspoilt beaches and wild salt marshes punctuated by creeks and small ancient harbours. The hub is Georgian Burnham Market (Norfolk's loveliest village), boasting over forty privately owned and run shops specialising in civilised essentials and serious retail therapy.
