5 bedroom detached house for sale

East Winch Road, Ashwicken, King's Lynn, Norfolk


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in arguable the most exclusive area in West Norfolk, this is a significant five bedroom family home that sits in approximately an acre of mature gardens and with the wonderful benefit of a heated swimming pool. The house has been a family home to the current owners for over 30 years and was the ideal place to bring up their children with ample space both inside the house as well as outside.

Over the years they have extended the house and created a substantial, welcoming and practical kitchen/family room to the rear. Hand made units from the renowned Kitchens Etc, a full size Aga and Norfolk pamment tiles, makes this room the perfect hub of a family home with access out to the garden and pool beyond. In addition they extended over the double garage on the first floor to give a grand master bedroom suit with walk in wardrobe and elegant en suite bathroom.

As one might expect a house that has been fully enjoyed as a home for so many years would now benefit from some cosmetic updating. However, in a location such as this, any improvements will naturally have a strong and positive effect on the capital value as well as allowing the new owners to shape their own style and finish to this grand house.

Just six miles to the east of Kings Lynn, East Winch Road in Ashwicken is one of the most highly regarded locations in West Norfolk with its striking detached houses set back from the road on large private plots. Kings Lynn has a main line straight into Cambridge, London Kings Cross and London Liverpool Street Railways Stations making it ideal for commuters.
