A four-bedroom house that once served as officer quarters during the Second World War is up for sale in West Raynham, near Fakenham, for £525,000.

Available with no onward chain, the detached home occupies a generous plot on the former site of RAF West Raynham, which was an active Second World War airfield.

It was then used by RAF West Raynham ‘Fighter Command’ until 1994 when it closed. The control centre has recently become a heritage centre.

The properties on Atcherley Square housed the officers and were subsequently sold for private ownership.

Selling agent Sowerbys describes the property for sale as “a beautiful, contemporary home”, adding that the sellers have reconfigured the living space to provide a stunning open-plan fitted kitchen, which is “a great place to cook”, socialise and spend time with children.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the master, also with a bay window to the rear aspect. The en suite to this bedroom comprises two wash basins, WC, bidet, bathtub and separate shower.

A further bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms.

The sizeable rear garden is laid to lawn, offering ample space for children to run and play, and for keen gardeners to design and create a horticultural landscape.

There is also an outbuilding and enclosed hot tub, plus a garage to the front. The hot tub is for sale via separate negotiation. 

Whilst much of the work has been done to turn this house into a home, Sowerbys says there are still jobs to finish, allowing the next owner to add their own touch.

West Raynham is a small historic village, approximately six miles from the market town of Fakenham.

It has a village hall and is approached through parkland, which includes a tree-lined route overlooking the historic Raynham Hall and St Margaret’s Church.

First built in the 11th century, the church fell into ruin from the 1720s, but it has since been partially restored and is used occasionally.
