A particularly well presented semi detached period house standing on .36 of an acre, subject to survey, with planning permission for conversion of an out-building into a two bedroom single storey residence.
Location Briningham is a charming North Norfolk village just off the B1110, some 5 miles south west of Holt, 7 miles south of Blakeney and just over 13 miles north east of Fakenham. Norwich is approximately 22 miles.
The thriving Georgian market town of Holt is the closest for amenities and includes an exciting range of independent shopping with delicatessen, tea shops, art galleries, clothing and gift shops together with a large department store, supermarket, banks, building society, library and post office. The National Rail Network can be accessed at Sheringham via the Bittern line into Norwich.
Description The Olde White Horse was the village Inn at the centre of the community until the mid 1960s, but since then a delightful semi detached period family home with delightful gardens and standing on a total plot of .36 of an acre subject to survey. The oil centrally heated character accommodation is most attractively decorated and presented. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, all of which are doubles with two having fitted wardrobes alongside a family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a comfortable sitting room, good sized dining room and cosy snug which would also make an ideal family room. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has two distinct areas; one with a breakfast bar and the other space to accommodate a table. Beyond is a utility and garden room and gardener’s wc.
As will be noted from our photograph there is a very good sized brick, flint and pantiled out building providing garaging and a good sized office ideal for home working or to accommodate a hobby or studio. The current owners have obtained full planning permission to convert this building into a separate single storey self-contained property comprising kitchen, dining room, sitting room, snug, hall, two bedrooms and wet room. There is a natural garden area to the rear of the building, screened by a brick and flint wall on one boundary and conifer hedging on the remaining two, with two parking spaces adjacent to the building. This building could, of course, be sold off as it stands or converted and sold as a finished article. However, this also presents an excellent conversion opportunity if purchasers are looking to accommodate an elderly relative where they want to be close to hand but provide independent living.
Part of the proposed plans have been included within our brochure but should you require further information the plans and associated documents are available online to view at North Norfolk District Council’s planning portal under Reference PF/14/0296.
Early viewing of this interesting opportunity is strongly recommended by the sole selling agents.
