Quirky train station home with tracks and platforms in garden selling for £675k
This charming converted railway station home is being sold for £675,000 – complete with tracks and platforms in the garden.
The quirky five-bedroom property is located in the village of Snettisham, Norfolk and is described as “truly unique”.
Set within walking distance of a pub and a school, the house is built on one of the old platforms and faces a vintage station sign.
The property, which is set over 3676 sq. ft., also boasts four bathrooms and a double garage.
But it has still managed to retain its original charm.
The online description for the freehold property reads: “This is a prime opportunity to purchase a truly unique home – a conversion of an old railway station in a very desirable village close to the beautiful West Norfolk coast.
“With five generous bedrooms, two on the ground floor with en suites, two kitchens and five reception rooms offering a wide range of uses, it would make an ideal multi-generational home.
“The south-facing conservatory along the old platform is a particularly impressive feature.
“A large, detached garage has an expansive area above that could make an excellent office, and the surrounding gardens are full of intrigue and charm.”
The home is being marketed by Fine & Country, through Rightmove.
Pictures show its interesting interior and exterior, with the old railway platforms forming part of the garden and stretching out behind the property.
Atop one of these platforms is a greenhouse and in between them, where the tracks used to be, there are now several vegetable patches and a shed.
Snettisham is around nine miles north of King’s Lynn, and has a population of around 2,500 people.
The property advert adds: “Snettisham benefits a primary school, rated Good by Ofsted, an award-winning pub and restaurant, The Rose & Crown, a Michelin starred restaurant, The Old Bank, a supermarket, a doctors’, a chemist, a veterinary practice, amongst other independent shops.
“The breath-taking beach and woodland walks are to the west, whilst other attractions are an RSPB Nature Reserve, Park Farm and Royal Sandringham Estate.
