Former railway signalman's house with 2 bedroom accommodation and delightful 2/3 acre gardens (sts) surrounded by woodland. No chain.

As it's name alludes to, 74 Station House, is one of a pair of semi detached cottages which were once the railway signalmen's houses for Raynham Park Station built in the 1880s by the railway company Midland and Great Northern. Since the demise of the railways, the properties have become private homes and number 74 has interesting accommodation briefly comprising kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, conservatory/diner with 2 bedrooms and a luxury bathroom upstairs. The property has been refurbished by the current owner including refelting and retiling the main roof, a Sarnafil roof to the conservatory/diner, installation of oil-fired central heating, secondary glazing and a new entrance porch/utility. Interesting period features have been retained such as high ceilings and deep skirtings, pine doors, fireplaces and tiled floors.
However, perhaps the property's outstanding feature is its delightful gardens which amount to approximately 2/3 acre (subject to survey) and are a haven for wildlife being surrounded by woodland. Of particular note is a period railway carriage (now requiring some renovation) that was formerly used as the office at Holt Railway Station.
74 Station House is being offered for sale with no onward chain.
