This exceptional property is for sale by public auction due to be held at midday on Friday 24 August at Downham Market Auction Rooms.
On the edge of this popular Norfolk village within easy commuting distances of Kings Lynn, Downham Market and Swaffham, this barn style house was built around 2003 and is ready to move into and backs on to the Shouldham Warren, part of the larger Thetford Forest which is ideal for riding through with access directly from the rear of the property.
