Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION The original part of the house is believed to date back to the mid-1650's with original flint plinths that are 12 inches thick in places. The beams in the sitting room and dining room are original beams, still with rope marks on, and were thought to have been found on the beach at the time of the Happisburgh Shipwrecks. The cottage has been a farm, which around 1896 had the neighbouring cottage built for the labourers. Stubbs Holly was also made into two marshmen's cottages at some stage and then later made back into one dwelling, being renovated in the 1980's when it was also extended to the rear. It also has an Ordnance Survey mark on the east facing wall. The property offers well presented accommodation with real Norfolk cottage character and features include beams, some pine panelled doors and a wood burner in the sitting room. There is an oil fired central heating system to radiators. There are also UPVC wood effect double glazed windows. The gardens are a lovely feature of the property, including lawned areas and a vegetable garden. There is also a purpose-built artist's studio with an electric night storage heater.
