The site is situated on the southerly edge of the village in an area known as Newgate Green with open fields to the south and east and St Margaret's Church close by on the other side of Holt Road. During the 15th and 16th centuries, Cley was an important port with boats navigating their way up to a harbour close to the church. Over the years, though, the river began to silt up leaving areas of natural beauty. By the late 1800s, with the advent of a new coast road and the railway at Holt, port trade declined and the village began to find new opportunities, attracting visitors to their beautiful coastal location.

Cley now boasts one of the best wildlife reserves in Norfolk from an impressive visitors centre. The picturesque village centre reflects the architecture of the Low Countries with Dutch gables alongside cobbled fishermens' cottages and Georgian merchants' houses. The shops and galleries feature local craftspeople/artists with independent shops, eateries, smokehouse, deli and attractive windmill.

4 miles to the south east is the Georgian market town of Holt with its wide range of everyday amenities and shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, also home to Greshams Pre Prep, Prep and Senior schools.

The proposed property is elevated relative to Holt Road and the plans have cleverly incorporated this spacious house into the hillside, thereby not impacting on the surroundings any more than the existing single storey building. The house will be set well back and screened from the road with the lower levels being excavated into the hillside but still affording panoramic southerly views. The design will create a great visual impact but not on the immediate surroundings through use of varying rooflines and timber clad elevations. Whilst the property will be striking and contemporary, it will blend in with surrounding relatively modern buildings whilst the walled boundaries will certainly reflect the period brick and flint materials of nearby cottages.

Situated in Cley Conservation Area and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a rare opportunity as planning permission is restrictive in these areas and along the coast. The finished product will be a truly stunning brick built residence with timber cladding and zinc roof, set in 0.7 acres (stms) and offering fine southerly countryside views. It is proposed to build to achieve Code Level 3 of the code for sustainable homes with optimum low maintenance and will include the addition of a detached 2 bedroom annex/studio for use as ancillary accommodation.
