Sold STC £550,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Large chalet house, offering scope to improve, with 3/4 bedrooms, first floor sea views, good size gardens, garage and parking. No chain.

Oaklands is a rare opportunity to purchase a large detached chalet house situated in a quiet part of town but just a few minutes walk from the Quay and Staithe Street, the town's main shopping street.
There is currently accommodation comprising to the ground floor a kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility, dining room, sitting room, study, shower room and a versatile room which could be a ground floor bedroom 4 or another reception room. Upstairs, there are a further 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have far reaching sea views, and a shower room. The property has been improved in recent years but might also appeal to those buyers looking for a project to turn this onto a contemporary family home, perhaps with some layout changes to make the most of the stunning first floor views of the sea.
Outside, there are good size gardens and grounds with a walled south facing patio garden to the front and an attractive lawned rear garden with well stocked borders. There is also driveway parking and an attached garage.
Oaklands is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

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, newly opened petrol station, bank 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.
