Situated in a semi rural location with easy access to the A47 and the market towns of Wisbech, Kings Lynn and Downham Market, this impressive property is coming to the market for the first time in 27 years and was completely remodelled and greatly extended by the current owners over the years and now provides a comfortable and spacious family home. The grounds are a special feature having manicured lawns, pond, terracing and fenced paddocks beyond. The internal fixtures and fittings are to the highest of standards and much thought has gone into giving this property the wow factor. The accommodation has sufficient space and scope to provide a self-contained annexe if required, subject to obtaining any necessary permissions.
The entrance door from the walled private driveway opens to a spacious hallway with doors off to the huge dual aspect lounge which has air conditioning and double doors to the impressive dining room having windows and French doors to the terracing, built in dresser style units with illumination and integrated fridge. The study doubles as a library having extensive bespoke book shelving and there is a cloakroom and a cellar. The kitchen breakfast room is a good size and is fitted with an extensive range of base and eye level units, breakfast bar, central island, three sinks, double dishwasher, range style cooker with matching hood, integrated steam oven and separate microwave, granite worksurfaces and low level heating. Off the kitchen is a utility area where there is ample space for several fridges and freezers and a door off leads to the laundry room which has a wet room area. To the rear of the house is a triple aspect games room, large enough for a full size snooker table and currently used as an office with further store/workshop to the side. A door from the kitchen breakfast room opens to a conservatory providing access to the front and side of the house. On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite is large, has air conditioning and is fitted with high quality wardrobes and matching dresser/drawer units and a door off leads to the luxury en-suite bathroom having a ‘Jacuzzi’ bath, separate ‘Jacuzzi’ multi shower and there are twin wash hand basins. There are four further double bedrooms one with en-suite shower and there are two family bathrooms.
The property is set back off the road and is approached via an electrically operated sliding gate leading to the block paved driveway with parking for numerous vehicles and providing access to the larger than average four car garage with electric doors. A high front wall provides privacy to well tended gardens and pathways. To the left side of the house is a paved courtyard where there are two block built outbuildings; one currently a large workshop (previously stables) and the other is a bootroom / WC. The rear of this building contains a garden store for storage of larger equipment and faces the greenhouse and vegetable garden. Further on is a chicken run. The rear gardens are glorious, laid mainly to lawn with mature trees and shrubs to the boundaries. Close to the house is a magnificent ornamental fish pond plus there is terracing and covered alfresco dining area. Beyond the gardens are the paddocks.
Paddocks & Land
There are five fenced paddocks amounting to around 2.6 acres (subject to a measured survey) of grazing excluding areas of orchards within, which if cleared would provide more grazing. The bulk of the land extends to the rear with further paddocks to either side. An attractive fenced and private walkway meanders around the boundaries and is great for walking your dog. There is separate vehicular access from the drove onto the land where there is a pole barn and two timber stables in need of repair or replacement.
