Property Description

The Property

No. 29 is an exceptional property.  It is a substantial four bedroom detached house, standing on a fully enclosed plot, with fencing and electric gates to the front and a beautifully landscaped garden to the rear, boasting a number of luxury features including a sauna and covered area with decked platform for a hot tub.

It is a handsome property, newly rendered back and front in white extensively refurbished internally by the current owners.  Originally their main residence the house has been operating very successfully as a luxury holiday let since summer 2019. 

Downstairs the accommodation is spacious and well laid out. The kitchen / breakfast room is bright and airy with bi-fold doors leading out to the decking, natural slate patio and garden to the rear; ideal for popping out to the garden with some snacks in order to relax in the sunshine.  With a stylish newly fitted kitchen, tiled floor, large island unit and hanging lights above, this room is the heart of the house.  With the utility, downstairs WC and door to garden off the kitchen.  Across the entrance hall is the open plan dining room and sitting room.  The dining room is bright with windows to the front and rear and a feature fireplace with living flame gas fire and the impressive 28 foot sitting room has windows to the front and rear and French doors out to the rear garden.  There is also has a feature fireplace in the sitting room, with living flame gas fire, perfect for cosying up on the sofa or entertaining in the colder months.   

Upstairs there are four good-sized double bedrooms, arranged off the landing.  All the bedrooms have been individually styled and dressed, with the master bedroom having an en suite shower room and the other bedrooms being served by the family bathroom.


The garden at No. 29 is a real highlight.  Cleverly landscaped and well-planted it has the feel of five star luxury tucked away in the midst of the village.  There is decking, slate patio, lawn and sleeper wall boarders, making the whole area flow beautifully as your eye wanders down the garden.  The high level fruiting trees are trained to form a privacy screen at the end of the garden when they are leafy.  In the garden is a wood clad annexe, housing a funky garden room with two sets of bi-fold doors opening the corner of the building to the garden, there is a shower room and kitchenette making this an ideal place to retreat from the midday sun whilst still feeling like you are in the garden or could be a useful overflow guest room if required.  Behind the garden room in the annexe is a good sized sauna with entrance area.  There is also a garage with electric doors to the rear of this building, facing towards the driveway, currently used for storage.

In front of the garden room is a raised platform with a roof over featuring skylight windows, currently used for a hot tub (this could be available by separate negotiation if required), and a great decked area currently used for outdoor sofa, seating and BBQ.

To the front of the property there is a lawned area with path leading to the front door, a wall with fencing along the front boundary and double electric gates leading to the tarmac driveway with parking for several cars.

No. 29 was launched as a holiday let in the summer of 2019, with leading local agency Norfolk Cottages.  It was a success from the outset, booking 13 weeks in the first six months to the end of the year.  Growing in popularity in 2020 there are currently 110 nights booked in 2020 with a gross value of £19,214.  These bookings, along with their income are available to the new owners.  Currently the booking calendar is closed from the end of September (to accommodate a potential buyer who does not wish to holiday let) but can easily be reopened to continue booking.

Achieving the Visit England highest possible standard of Five Star Gold, No. 29 really does offer luxury touches over and above the usual holiday cottage; the immaculately presented open plan interior, fabulous outdoor space, garden room annexe, sauna and hot tub area, make it a stand out choice for visitors to the area, keen to be close to Sandringham and to the North Norfolk coast.

The fact that the property could be available as a turn key, with furniture and fittings included, by separate negotiation, means that a seamless handover of ownership is possible without the need to update any marketing material or make any changes to bookings.  

The Location

Dersingham is quite a large village, located just a stones throw from Sandringham and 2.5 miles from the coast at Snettisham.  In 2017 it was in the Sunday Times Top 20 Best Villages in Britain, ranking at number 9.  It's proximity to Sandringham is evident in the number of carrstone buildings in the village, typical of this area.  

It is a very well appointed village with two pubs (both walking distance from No. 29); The Feathers, an original carrstone building with a large beer garden and The Coach & Horses just down the road.  There is a Co-Op supermarket, village store, Thaxters garden centre, a variety of shops, Tropics Takeaway offering a diverse menu from fish and chips and of course the late night kebab.

There is a primary school in the village and a large playing field and a doctors surgery.  For larger supermarkets, mainline train station, hospital and road links to the North and Midlands; Kings Lynn is just 10 miles away.
