Tenure: Freehold

A beautiful and historic oasis in the heart of this vibrant North Norfolk market town. The deeds for The Old Coach House show it first changing hands at about the time of the Napoleonic wars however most of the current structure probably dates from the turn of the last century when it was used as a more functional coach house and stables for The Red Lion Hotel on the market square, the current Gallery Bistro. The property can be entered via three approaches, from the private Gladstone Road via a discreet gateway, from the double gates also off Gladstone Road and directly into the car port and also via the gate that gives direct pedestrian access through to the Church Lanes that lead down to Norwich Street, the Market Place or Oak Street, all just a moment's walk away. On stepping into the grounds of the property what is immediately most striking is the beautifully maintained gardens that are open to both the south and the west but incredibly private given how central they are to the town. On going inside it is easy to see how the building was once divided into stalls with the remaining partitions providing for natural rooms, downstairs there is a kitchen, a dining room and a large reception room with a conservatory addition which is currently arranged as a second kitchen but would easily revert back to additional living space. Upstairs there are four bedrooms; three doubles and a single; a family bathroom and a shower room en-suite to bedroom four, and throughout the entire Coach House there is evidence of its origins with plenty of exposed beams. There is beautiful parquet flooring throughout the ground floor, which is believed to have originated from the old Norwich Hospital. Outside and in addition to the car port, there is a large garage attached to the property with loft space over that could provide potential for extending and there is also further off street parking for several vehicles. In all The Old Coach House is presented in good order having been lovingly maintained over the years as a home.
 

FAKENHAM Fakenham has been voted the 7th best place to live in Britain by Country Life magazine. It's a market town in central Norfolk - halfway between King's Lynn and Norwich. It has a Thursday market that dates back to 1250 and a Farmers Market on the last Saturday of each month with great locally grown organic produce! It's often called the Gateway to the North Norfolk Coast as it's well positioned for the coast and other local attractions like Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park and Fakenham Racecourse. Easy to get to are Holkham Hall, Sandringham and the Thursford Collection of steam engines and funfair rides with its wonderful Christmas Spectacular Show - the largest of its kind in England. There are plenty of places to eat in the town including pubs, cafes and restaurants, as well as a four screen cinema and the Gallows Sports Centre with golf, squash, tennis, archery, rifle shooting and bowls. Rail access is via King's Lynn (20 miles) or Norwich (25 miles). Norwich International Airport is rapidly becoming a major feeder airport for worldwide travel via Schiphol.
