Location Alexandra Road runs between the Holway Road and Cremers Drift, just a quarter of a mile from Sheringham town centre. Sheringham is a delightful small town on the North Norfolk coast surrounded by some of Norfolk's finest countryside. The town centre has an excellent range of shops serving every day needs to include a Tesco's supermarket, primary and secondary schools, churches of most denominations, theatre and library, modern health centre, dentist and 18 hole cliff top golf course together with regular bus and rail services to the city of Norwich and other nearby towns. There are also some beautiful coastal and woodland walks in the area and the town plays host to several festivals throughout the year including the carvinal, 40's weekend, coast and Viking festivals.  

Description Constructed, we understand, in 1913 this substantial detached period house is absolutely delightful with gas centrally heated accommodation arranged over three floors.

On inspecting this property for the very first time I was impressed by the amount of light flooding into the rooms, the number of period features, many of which are original to the house, the extremely tasteful decoration and the peaceful atmosphere of the property. The extremely spacious drawing room which extends to some 25' and the adjoining 18' family room both have a wall of sash windows and French doors leading to the terrace and rear garden. There is a separate dining room with a small room off, the like of which I have never seen before with sink and fitted dresser, utilised by the current owners as a bar and for the storage of glasses and crockery. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is attractively fitted and includes a number of integrated appliances and also has patio doors leading to the garden.

There are two staircases giving access to the first floor, one from the reception hall and the other from the kitchen. All the bedrooms are very good size doubles, the master of which has an en-suite bathroom and the guest bedroom has its own access to the family bathroom. The second floor is currently used as work rooms supporting the current owners business but there is huge potential here to create further living accommodation or a self contained apartment. All the windows at this level have been finished in uPVC for ease of future maintenance.

The good size gardens to the rear have a southerly aspect and a very traditional feel with an extensive terrace adjoining the house, steps, raised beds, trellis and pergolas leading through to a lawn and a further terrace at the top of the garden looking back at the house. The front garden is gravelled to provide off street parking.

This property is a great family home with potential to provide self contained accommodation or perhaps an opportunity for bed and breakfast and an additional income, whatever your preference, early viewing is advised by the sole selling agents.
