This historical home was once a charming gatehouse for the railway line leading to
Sandringham and Hunstanton. Over the years, it has been transformed into a lovely and modern living space while retaining its unique character.
Its transformation has focused on open living spaces, rather than a higher number of rooms, which are smaller in size. This versatile re-imagining of the property has meant that it has been able to offer multi-generational living for its custodians.
Upon entering the property, through the electric wooden gates, a sense of privacy and tranquillity immediately envelopes you. The Old Gatehouse, with its imposing presence and historic charm, is a stand-out home which exudes a sense of luxury and sophistication.
The spacious kitchen/dining room, with seating space, serves as the heart of this home - where family and friends can gather and enjoy each other's company.
From here, the rooms and mood of the house change, offering private and relaxing spaces along the way, finishing with the perfect space to while away an evening.
Off the central hallway, a spot for book lovers is the raised library, which provides a cosy and relaxing environment to curl up and indulge in a good read. Its the perfect quiet room downstairs and could equally serve as a luxurious office space.
The bright and airy sitting room is the place to unwind. With its vast size, it's a great space to relax as a family - right before heading into the games room for some competitive fun. Through double doors in the living room, the games room has been a space where our clients have enjoyed countless hours of fun, potting reds and yellows over friendly games of pool.
This home also offers multi-generational living, with a self-contained guest suite off the utility room. This area provides independence for any member of the family, or a guest, whilst being able to still be a part of the main home's set-up.
Upstairs, the bedrooms are spacious and luxurious, with each one benefiting from its own en-suite bathroom. The principal suite is particularly impressive, measuring a staggering 35 feet, including its balcony, dressing area and en-suite bathroom. The landing is well-equipped too, with built-in storage it's a great place to hide things out of sight and keep your home clutter free.
A huge aspect of this home is its appeal to those with equestrian interests. The Old
Gatehouse boasts approximately 6 acres of land (stms), with extra land available by separate negotiation, six American-style stables, a tack room and superb fields. This aspect of a property is a rarity, and one which the right person would rightly appreciate.
The rest of the outdoor space is equally as impressive. Ample parking, garaging for multiple cars, and a large patio area - perfect for al fresco dining - complement the lawned areas of the home, ensuring there's something for everyone - and more than enough room for guests.
The Old Gatehouse is really a one-of-a-kind property. It's got historical charm, is adapted for modern living and offers superb equestrian facilities. With so much on offer, one must really see this home in all its glory to be fully appreciative of it...
