Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are delighted to offer a stunning period cottage on Pales Green, Castle Acre, one of West Norfolk's most desirable villages. Dating to the early 1700's, this beautiful cottage should be viewed to be fully appreciated and has recently been significantly improved by the current owners who fell so in love with the village that they have bought a larger family home here.

This picturesque village is steeped in history with the remains of a priory and castle, with some of the most impressive earthworks in the country close by. The cottage itself is part of the village's history being constructed from flint and reformation stones from the priory. Inside there is a sitting room with new HETAS approved wood-burner. There is a new kitchen with Stoves cooker and area for breakfast table. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

At the rear there is a courtyard garden. The property enjoys a pleasant view over the village church to the front and is just a couple of minutes' walk to the village centre. Further improvements made by the owners are the installation of a new roof, electric central heating, electrical work as required and new carpets. This superb piece of premium property would make an ideal second home, holiday let or full time residence and is offered with no upward chain.  

CASTLE ACRE Castle Acre is a picturesque village about four miles from the market town of Swaffham and is well known for its 13th century priory and castle ruins. There are interesting narrow streets which focus around the village green where a tearoom, an antique shop and pub/restaurant can be found. Further amenities include an excellent grocery shop with post office and a new fish and chip shop. There is a book store which is open once a week and at the centre is a fine church. Castle Acre is the mid-point on Peddars Way, the old roman road built to speed soldiers from the south to control the rebellious Iceni. The River Nar flows through fields surrounding the village and these offer an ideal area for country walks. In 2009 a new school was built catering for ages up to year six.
