Tenure: Freehold

Delightful detached rural period cottage, with scope to improve, standing in the middle of attractive gardens.




DESCRIPTION

Whitehall Cottage is a delightful detached period cottage situated in a prominent position on the edge of the rural but conveniently located village of Stanfield. Thought to have been built over 200 years ago, the property has in the past been the village Post Office but, in more recent years, has been a much loved home for the current owner. However, the cottage would also suit those buyers looking for a rural character holiday home with lettings potential.

The property has been improved over recent years including the creation of an impressive half vaulted studio room, UPVC double glazing to the front and a replacement LPG boiler. However, the property would now benefit from a programme of refurbishment, perhaps with some alterations to the layout. There is currently flexible ground floor accommodation comprising a cosy beamed sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility, dining room, bathroom and the studio room which could be another reception room or converted to a bedroom suite or a larger kitchen/diner. Upstairs, there is a good sized master bedroom (with room for the creation of an en suite, subject to the necessary permissions) and a 2nd bedroom.

Outside, the cottage stands in delightful lawned gardens with well stocked seasonal borders, specimen trees and a gravelled driveway providing parking for several cars.



SITUATION

Stanfield is a small scattering of houses with a Parish Church and The Barn Café and Restaurant. The village is close to Mileham, which has school, a Post Office and shop and close by is the ever popular Litcham School. The larger town of King's Lynn, the city of Norwich and the market towns of Dereham and Fakenham are also close at hand. The surrounding countryside is undulating and well-wooded and there are many attractive walks from the village. The North Norfolk Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is approximately 30 minutes drive away.
