Superb detached period house with 3/4 bedroom accommodation in 1/3 acre gardens (sts) 3 miles from the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea.

DESCRIPTION
Longacre is a substantial Grade II Listed house, parts of which are believed to date from circa 1650. The property once formed part of the Holkham Estate and came into the current family’s ownership in 1969 following a period of renovation. Formerly 3 farm hand cottages, the house now provides characterful family size accommodation comprising to the ground floor entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen with separate boiler room/utility, dining room with a versatile ground floor bedroom 4/reception room and bathroom. Upstairs, accessed via 2 separate staircases, there are a further 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. Many interesting features remain such as pamment tiled floors, wonderful period doors, arched windows with the benefit of oil-fired central heating and a wood burning stove in the sitting room.
The property stands in delightful gardens and grounds measuring approximately 1/3 acre (subject to survey) with views over the surrounding countryside. There is driveway parking for several cars with space to build a detached garage if required. The large garage attached to the house could also be converted to create additional ground floor accommodation (subject to the necessary permissions).
Longacre has been a much loved second home and holiday lettings business for the current owners but would also be suitable for buyers looking for a period family house in a convenient rural location close to all of the amenities on the North Norfolk Coast.

SITUATION
Warham is a charming rural Norfolk village with brick and cobble cottages, 2 churches, farming estates and a popular 18th century traditional village inn which has a high reputation for its simple food made with local produce. The village is renowned for its 3 acre Iron Age fort site which is said to be one of the finest examples in England and also has a tiny request stop on the narrow gauge Wells and Walsingham Light Railway.
3 miles to the north is Wells-next-the-Sea, an attractive Georgian coastal town with many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or closeby in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, first class accommodation and restaurants, nursery, primary and secondary schools, doctor's surgery, petrol station, bank and a full range of 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 Albatross 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.
