Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming period cottage with a large outbuilding and a west facing garden situated in a Conservation Area close to the town centre. No chain.

28 High Street is a charming end terrace period cottage situated on the High Street with a west facing courtyard garden and a good sized outbuilding offering scope for conversion (subject to the necessary permissions). The property would now benefit from some refurbishment with accommodation comprising an open plan sitting/dining room, kitchen with 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. There is electric boiler central heating to radiators and an open fireplace in the sitting/dining room.

The High Street in Wells-next-the-Sea is designated as a Conservation Area and is now entirely residential but still reflects its former glory with its quaint, period shop frontages and prides itself as one of the town's most prestigious addresses. Number 28 is being offered for sale with no onward chain and, with all of the town's amenities just a short walk away, this makes the property an ideal second home with holiday lettings potential or a conveniently located compact home.

Wells-next-the-Sea is an attractive Georgian coastal town with good access to the market towns of Fakenham, King's Lynn, Holt and Norwich. Wells-next-the-Sea has many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or close by in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, first class accommodation and restaurants, nursery, primary and secondary schools, doctor's surgery, 2 supermarkets, petrol station and a full range of diverse, independent shops.

The Quay is still the hub of the town with the familiar sight of "gillying" - fishing for shore crabs and the resident Dutch sailing ketch Albatros alongside the small fishing fleet and growing number of leisure craft. The beach, a mile along the beach road and accessible via the sea wall walk, car or the small railway, boasts beautiful sands, dunes and colourful beach huts fringing the pinewoods.

Mains water, mains drainage and mains electricity. Electric boiler central heating to radiators.

EPC Rating Band D.
