KING’S LYNN: Restored town house
OUTWARDLY this property at 3 Albert Avenue, Lynn, is a typical terraced town house but step through the front door and it is full of surprises.
The current owners, who have just put it on the market, have totally renovated the house restoring it back to its former glory and, in doing so, they have created a home with a fine balance of contemporary living space and original features.
They have retained some original tiled flooring, archway and corbels, the decorative ceiling rose in the lounge and the fireplaces in the bedrooms.
The living space includes an open plan kitchen/breakfast room with matching wall and base units, a breakfast bar, access to the back garden and inset ceiling spot lights.
The open plan theme continues into the lounge and dining area which has double doors opening to the patio and back garden.
The entrance hall, which has the tiled floor and archway also has a staircase with wooden banister and spindles leading to the first floor and to a study area on the landing. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with a four-piece white suite and a shower cubicle.
Outside there is a front garden with a brick wall and parking space and the back garden is fully enclosed with brick walls and timber fencing and is mainly laid to patio.
The property has newly-installed gas central heating, full double glazing, a new roof with fully insulated loft and there is also a damp proof course.
The cottage is tucked away behind the Tuesday Market Place and is therefore only a short walk from the town centre.
It is on the market for £139,995 and has the added bonus of not being involved in an onward chain.
Wilson and Betts’ properties in and around Lynn also include a three-bedroomed semi-detached house at 20 Kensington Road.
