The Property
An incredibly rare opportunity has arisen to purchase one of just a handful of substantial, detached, period homes situated in the heart of Holt. Prospect House is a Regency Grade II listed, three storey house constructed of mellow red brick and local flint under a black glazed pantile roof. In excellent condition throughout, the property now offers accommodation briefly comprising an entrance hall leading to a double aspect sitting room with an open fireplace housing a gas fire, a dining room, an exceptionally well fitted out kitchen which leads to a garden room. A staircase leads down from the entrance hall to a very dry cellar which is split into an office and a storage room. On the first floor a generously sized landing leads to two double bedrooms, both of which have an extensive range of fitted bedroom furniture and well appointed en suite facilities. There is also a separate cloakroom. On the second floor a landing leads to two further bedrooms and a shower room. The property maintains many of its period features to include well proportioned rooms with high ceilings, picture rails, sash windows, original doors and brass fittings and many of the wooden mouldings. The house also has the benefit of gas fired central heating throughout and secondary double glazing. Outside, high metal railings and a gate lead to a brickweave courtyard where there is a private garden area, triple garaging, a workshop, cloakroom and a utility room. Above the garage block is a self contained annexe suitable for additional family/visitor occupation, studio, gallery or craft workshop.

Location
The Georgian market town of Holt is one of the most highly regarded towns in the county and boasts many well preserved Georgian buildings and an excellent range of individual shops and local facilities. Schooling includes the renowned Gresham's Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior Schools in the town and Beeston Hall School near Sheringham. The North Norfolk Heritage coast is around four miles away at Cley-next-the-Sea and Blakeney offering good walking, bird watching, golfing and sailing facilities.
