A truly EXCEPTIONAL, and very INDIVIDUAL, 5 bedroom detached home enjoying a FABULOUS PLOT of ESTABLISHED AND PRIVATE REAR GARDENS TOTALLING OVER ½ OF AN ACRE (subject to measured survey). Originally commissioned and constructed in the 1930s, ‘Audley House’ has traditionally and continually served as a SUCCESSFUL FAMILY HOME and at one time housed a local Doctor who held a surgery within the building itself. Since then, it has continued to have been maintained, adapted, and modernised, becoming the very enviable home that it is today. Inside, the hallway boasts the original panelled walls and parquet flooring before extending to each of the downstairs reception rooms. The main sitting room extends to almost 17ft in size and enjoys an open fireplace and large bay window overlooking the side garden. A 21ft conservatory adjoins, capturing the privacy and beauty of the gardens and elsewhere, there is a front dining room, cloakroom and separate study. The kitchen is also positioned to the rear and benefits from having a walk-in pantry to one end, a breakfast room leading from one side, and the most useful of utility rooms to the other. Upstairs, each of the bedrooms are of a true, double proportion with the largest extending to almost 17ft across, continuing through to an en-suite shower room. The main, family bathroom is also an impressive size measuring over 14ft in length. Hidden within the roof space, the 21ft attic has roof windows, power and light and provides a useful area for hobbies and pastimes alike. The level of desirability is propelled to another level when it comes to considering both the outside space and the general locality in which this property stands; tucked back along this small road, there is a sense of village life that surrounds the building whilst the main town itself is literally only a few minutes walk away. With garage and generous levels of parking available to the front, what awaits to the rear is truly remarkable. Here, there are far reaching gardens, also extending to the side, producing the most glorious combination of lawns, patios, borders, shrubbery and mature trees, all of which are meticulously maintained, cherished and cared for. There are limited opportunities to purchase such distinctive and encapsulating properties, more so within a location such as this, with good access to the towns amenities and also the train station on the King’s Lynn to London King’s Cross line via Cambridge.
