Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Detached chalet house in good size gardens overlooking the church in this popular village just 3 miles from the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea.

DESCRIPTION
Forge house is a detached chalet house built approximately 40 years ago by the current owners in the heart of the popular North Norfolk village of Wighton. The property stands set well back from the road on an elevated plot overlooking the Church to the rear and countryside beyond.
There is accommodation comprising entrance hall, kitchen/dining room with separate utility, ground floor bathroom, sitting room with 3 bedrooms and a cloakroom upstairs. However, the property does also offer scope for extension/improvement (subject to the necessary permissions) with the benefit of UPVC double glazed windows and doors, a wood burning stove in the sitting room and oil-fired central heating to the ground floor.
Outside, Forge House stands in good sized gardens measuring approximately 1/5 acre (subject to survey) with driveway parking, a timber garage and a workshop.

SITUATION
Wighton is a traditional Norfolk village set in a Conservation Area with a scattering of brick and flint cottages and farmhouses. Wighton is, however, a busy working community with farms such as Copys Green Farm where the much acclaimed Mrs Temple's cheeses are produced. Alongside the impressive parish church is the recently refurbished village inn, The Carpenters Arms, serving good quality and locally sourced food and, on the edge of the village, The Old School Gallery where sculptor Henry Moore once lived and, more recently, the internationally acclaimed artist, Alfred Cohen.
Its peaceful charm and rural setting make Wighton one of North Norfolk's most sought after places especially as it is only about 3 miles from Wells-next-the-Sea, an attractive Georgian coastal town, with many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or closeby in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, first class accommodation and restaurants, nursery, primary and secondary schools, doctor's surgery, bank and a full range of shops.
