DESCRIPTION
A PIECE OF HISTORY! Dating back to circa 1739, Church House is a substantial family home situated centrally within the village of Upwell, overlooking the Well Creek River. One of the adjoining barns has been partially converted and there is planning permission in place on the other barn to extend the accommodation even further (Borough Council of Kings Lynn & West Norfolk ref. 11/01932/F & 11/01933/F). The property does have a variety of outbuildings, retains many original features and also benefits from a bespoke hand-built kitchen and a mature south-facing rear garden, with the whole plot approaching 1/5 acre (S.T.P.S.).

All doors and entrances have been renovated and all woods repaired where required. The heating system, boiler and tank have been upgraded to meet the needs of the planned extensions (incorporating new kitchens and shower room). Most rooms have been recently decorated ensuring continuity throughout the house.
