Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Property
The property offered for sale is a highly individual former Mission Hall believed to date back to 1850. The hall is understood to be one of the oldest buildings within the vicinity of Melton Constable which is of historical importance as a de-commissioned railway hub. The hall was used for over a century as a place of worship and for community gatherings. This fine period building was recently expertly converted and restored and now provides a sumptuous living space which takes full advantage of the character and charm of the original building. With a sympathetic and detailed approach, the hall very cleverly fuses character and charm with contemporary styling and design efficiency. The generous and highly versatile accommodation comprises a reception hall with a vaulted ceiling and galleried landing, a triple aspect sitting room with a high vaulted ceiling, a well fitted out kitchen, separate dining room, a study/bedroom three and a bathroom. On the first floor, a galleried landing leads to two large bedrooms, both with en suite facilities. The property also benefits from sealed unit double glazing and oil fired central heating throughout.
Location
Briston is a thriving village with an extensive range of amenities including village shops, a bakery, butchers, garage and a primary school. Around four miles away is the market town of Holt. Holt has an extensive range of shops and businesses where a friendly and personal service still remains. The town is also home to Gresham's Public School. Briston is in the catchment area for Reepham High School and college. The North Norfolk coast is around eight miles distant with Cley, Blakeney and Morston all within easy reach. The county city of Norwich is about twenty miles away with fast rail links to London Liverpool Street. Norwich Airport has direct access to most destinations, via Schipol (Amsterdam).

Directions
Leave Holt via the Norwich Road. At the roundabout proceed straight over. After passing the Police Station take the first turning right where signposted Hunworth Quarry. After around two miles you will enter the village of Hunworth. Proceed through the village and after a further two miles you will arrive at a set of crossroads in Briston. Turn right, signed to Melton Constable. Proceed into the village and around 50 yards after Eke's Garage on your left hand side you will find The Old Mission Hall, identified by a Pointens 'For Sale' board
