Rare opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow requiring refurbishment standing in 1/3 acre grounds (sts) right in the heart of Fakenham. No chain.

DESCRIPTION
Oaks Bungalow is a rare opportunity to purchase a 1930s detached bungalow standing in good sized wrap arounds gardens right in the heart of Fakenham. The property would now benefit from a programme of refurbishment and does also lend itself to extension (subject to the necessary permissions). There are majority UPVC double glazed windows and doors, gas-fired central heating installed and some period features such as oak parquet flooring, exposed floorboards and picture rails.
There is accommodation comprising a spacious entrance hall, kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a separate utility, large sitting/dining room, with 3 bedrooms, bathroom and cloakroom and a flexible room which has in the past been used as a dining room but could also be a 4th bedroom.
Perhaps, the property's best feature is its lovely wrap around gardens which are partly walled and amount to approximately 1/3 acre (subject to survey) with a detached timber garage/workshop and plenty of driveway parking.
Oaks Bungalow is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

SITUATION
Fakenham is often referred to as the “gateway” to North Norfolk. On the banks of the River Wensum and nestling between the historic city of Norwich and the medieval port of King’s Lynn, Fakenham is also only a short drive to the beautiful North Norfolk coastline some 11 miles away.
Once renowned for its successful printing industry, Fakenham is now better known for Norfolk’s only national hunt racecourse and its popular weekly market. People come from far and wide on market and race days transforming the central marketplace. Fakenham boasts several supermarkets, library, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, a good selection of restaurants, bowling alley, cinema and infants’, junior and high school with 6th form college. Surrounding areas are all well serviced by bus routes with direct rail links to Cambridge and London from King’s Lynn and Norwich.
