Full description

1 BERNARD ROAD A "hidden gem" can be an over stated expression, but for this character period property it is very much the case. This imposing, detached, large, family house, circa 1900 is in an elevated position with good-sized grounds overlooking the town, screened from this residential area with high trees and only yards away from the beach, town and transport links. The current vendors have sympathetically restored the house, which has six bedrooms and the property has a wealth of period features throughout. There are delightful views from the first and second floors to the church, lighthouse and the sea. The property has hardwood double glazed windows throughout. To fully appreciate the internal character features and its hidden location, a viewing is essential.
 

CROMER Cromer is a picturesque coastal town with a good shopping area and attractive back streets around the medieval church. The beach is sandy and is home to the famous Cromer crab boats and, of course, the famous Cromer crabs. The pier was cut in two by a drilling rig in 1993 but is now back in service and the Pavilion Theatre has its famous traditional end-of the-pier summer show. Cromer's greatest figure was Henry Blogg, coxswain of the lifeboat from 1909 to 1947, who won the George Cross and four other decorations for saving lives at sea. He was involved in saving an amazing 837 lives Apart from his museum there are many places of interest nearby including Felbrigg Hall and the Norfolk Shire Horse Centre. It has more sunshine than almost anywhere in England!

Steps from the terrace and a pathway winds its way down through the trees to a large shingled parking and turning area, next to the single garage. This lower level is accessed via Beach Road, enclosed by shrub and plant borders and there is a brick outbuilding, offering further storage potential. This building has no roof.
