Sowerbys are delighted to bring to the market an exemplary Victorian built property. Over the past 20 years our vendors have spent a significant amount of money extending the property and refurbishing every room. With four reception rooms, four bedrooms, a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room and an indoor heated swimming pool - this property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
The property is set back from the road, with an electric gate giving access to both the property and garage. The front door, which has recently been custom built leads through to the reception hall, from where all rooms can be accessed. This property offers an abundance of character, space and light. To the front there are two good size reception rooms, both with open fire places and tall sash windows, allowing plenty of light to flood through. Leading off the sitting room is the formal dining room, which can also be accessed from the main hall, as well as from the kitchen. French doors opening to the terraced patio allow this room to seamlessly connect with the outdoors.
The kitchen/breakfast room has open access through into the garden room and is the hub of this majestic property. Everything in this room has been done to the highest specification, including solid wood shaker style units, granite worktops and a butler sink all centred around the kitchen island. Off the kitchen a door leads to a sizable utility room which gives access to the pool room, garage and the side of the property. The pool room is a great addition to this property, it is enclosed and heated meaning it can be enjoyed all year round. It also has the additional advantage of having a bar. The garage is of a great size, being able to easily accommodate three cars, plus there is extra storage room.
All bedrooms are spacious and of a great size, however the principal wing is what really sets the sleeping quarters apart, occupying the full length of the property. Our vendors have converted what was once a bedroom into a walk-through dressing room, which in turn leads to one of the largest en-suite bathrooms.
The outside space has also been uplifted, with the front of the property designed to be low maintenance. To the front, a tarmac drive provides ample off-street parking complete with wonderful flower beds. The rear garden has also been designed to extremely low maintenance. From inset sprinklers, to beautiful borders and the wonderful al fresco patio areas, this garden is a slice of heaven - tranquil, private and full of life all year round.
WISBECH Wisbech is an attractive and historic market town commonly known as the Capital of the Fens. Near the bridge is a monument to Thomas Clarkson, an active opponent of the slave trade. Also of interest are the two market places and the parish church of St Peter and St Paul, which has a fine 16th century tower. The Norman Castle has long since disappeared, but there is a house built from its stone by Thomas Thurloe, Cromwell's Secretary of State. Adjoining it is a great museum, one of the oldest in the country, which counts among its treasures the original manuscript of 'Great Expectations' by Charles Dickens. In the area there is very good walking and cycling, farm shops nearby, theatre - amateur and professional, a swimming pool, library, good schools- including the highly thought of Wisbech Grammar School, and a Salvation Army hall. The town is only 20 minutes from King's Lynn with its direct rail link to Kings Cross via Cambridge approx 1 hour 40 minutes. Peterborough is 35 minutes away with its national rail links.
