Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Woodpecker Cottage was formerly known as The Old Schoolhouse and is a Grade II Listed Building dating from the seventeenth century. The detached brick, flint and pantiled dwelling was enlarged in the nineteenth century and has since been altered and modernised but now merits modernisation throughout. The property is set within attractive grounds of approaching half an acre with potential for further development (subject to planning).

Blakeney is a Conservation Area within the coastal Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The steep High Street features attractive flint cottages most of which were once owned by fishermen when Blakeney was an important port. Many of these are now Listed for their architectural and historic interest as well as their streetscape value. With its history and hotels this is one of the most popular villages in East Anglia. Sailors and birdwatchers have largely replaced the maritime folk but Blakeney retains its charm for residents and visitors alike. As well as its famous quay and former fishermen's cottages Blakeney has several shops, a primary school and doctors' surgery. Further facilities are available a short drive inland at Holt.

OUTSIDE Attached to the northern gable is about forty feet of brick and flint walling enclosing a lawned corner at this end. The whole site approaches half an acre in extent and is enclosed by flint walls, mostly about four feet in height, with an overall length of about 580 feet. Sited to the south-east of the cottage is a modern detached single garage also of brick, flint and pantiled construction. Finally in the south-west corner of the garden are a couple of outbuildings built against the flint walling as a summerhouse, cloakroom, store and separate toolshed.
