The Old Chapel
Approached via a quiet country road, is this delightful old detached Methodist Chapel that dates back to 1885, resting in the heart of the Royal Sandringham Estate. Found in the small Norfolk village of Flitcham, this property boasts stunning period features such as the old wooden front door, with its original iron key and lock. Step into the spacious sitting room with colourful sofas and armchairs where you can curl up with your loved ones and spend the evening unwinding in front of the Smart TV with a Sky Q package for your pleasure and a warming open fire to keep you nice and toasty during those chillier months. Discover a wonderfully appointed kitchen/diner to the rear, housing all the appliances you could need to rustle up some delicious meals. The dining area provides a large table, fully constructed from pews, making it the perfect spot for family gatherings over a sparkling glass of champagne. There is a delightful games room with a table football that can be changed into a pool table, as well as a huge wall-mounted TV where you can play a variety of games on the PlayStation, or get some quiet to watch your own shows. Upstairs, the property offers two king-size bedrooms and a twin room, all of which have a range of contemporary furniture for your personal items and have been individually styled to a high standard. The master bedroom in particular impresses with excellent additions such as the classic chaise lounge and lovely dressing table, as well as the sparkling en-suite shower and walk-in wardrobe, all welcome luxuries combined with the elegant decor. The twin has been designed with a nautical theme, with so many characterful features and a duck egg colour scheme, making it a quirky, but welcoming space to relax into the evening. Delight in the family bathroom with a large bath and a shower enclosure to choose from, and enjoy a long and warm soak at the end of the day looking up through the skylight to stargaze clear Norfolk skies. Sit at the garden furniture for a spot of alfresco dining during the summer months, or enjoy your morning coffee out here with a good book to keep you company. Along with several other villages, Flitcham forms part of the Royal Sandringham Estate, with the village sign being a gift from King George V in 1912, and you will be right in the heart of this community as the chapel can be found in the village centre. Properties on this Royal estate are rarely available for sale or let, so you have a unique opportunity to visit this picture-perfect area to understand why it is favoured by the Royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridgeshire who have chosen neighbouring Anmer as their summer home. A visit to the Royal Estate of Sandringham is a must, resting in 400-acres of landscaped gardens and offering displays of royal life inside, as well as being renowned for its annual flower show. Why not take the short drive to Houghton Hall, built for Great Britain’s first Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole, which is one of the finest examples of Palladian architecture and is home to many species of exotic deer. Cyclists will love the Norfolk Coast Cycleway, but for those who prefer four wheels to two the property is within easy driving distance of several beaches, including Old Hunstanton Beach around 15-miles away reached via a picturesque drive through the Royal estate, Snettisham beach around 10-miles away and Heacham beach around 11-miles away. Nature lovers will also delight in the beautiful, unspoilt wildlife on offer in Norfolk, particularly the RSPB reserves and saltmarshes to be found near the coast. Closer to home, Abbey Farm in Flitcham combines traditional farming with wildlife conservation, their bird hide is open all year round where visitors can watch their nesting swans and little owls amongst pastures and wet grasslands. Head over to the cultural hub of King’s Lynn, a popular nearby market town filled with attractions to explore, such as its 12th century port and its fishing museum True Yard's Fisherfolk Museum. With a variety of rural and coastal pubs and restaurants to explore, serving everything from local seafood and the region’s famous samphire to handmade cheeses and craft beer, there is something for everyone to enjoy. When it’s time to wrap up the day, return to The Old Chapel for a relaxing evening with your loved ones in front of the warming fire.
