Tenure: Freehold

Location Situated to the North East of Sheringham Town Centre, 24 Nelson Road has views to Beeston Hill to the front and delightful far reaching views at the rear over Beeston Regis and open countryside beyond.

Sheringham is a delightful small town in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the North Norfolk coast nestling between the sea and Pretty Corner woods. There are some excellent coastal and woodland walks in the vicinity to include a National Trust property at Felbrigg. Sheringham beach also enjoys a blue flag status and is a mix of shingle and sand depending on the tide with a wide promenade running the length of the town.

Popular for both holiday and retirement, tourists and those living locally are drawn to the excellent range of independent shops and Tesco's supermarket. Bus and rail links give access to the bustling city of Norwich, some 27 miles south the nearby Georgian town of Holt, 6 miles south west and the Victorian town of Cromer just over 4 miles east along the coast. There is a modern health centre, dentist, theatre and library together with Splash leisure centre and a magnificent 18 hole cliff top golf course. The town hosts several events throughout the year including the Viking festival, crab and lobster festivals, coast air festival, carnival and 1940's weekend. 

Description Constructed in 1908, this extremely stylish detached Arts and Crafts house, typifies the period with it modest and functional external appearance. The porch externally is the only feature to give some indication of what might be expected internally.

Certainly when you do view the inside of this lovely home, you wont be disappointed by the light, space and many original features which typify this era and the desire at that time to revive traditional craftsmanship and restore simplicity of design. The entrance door opens to a truly delightful reception hall with fireplace acting as a focal point to the space, traditional beamed ceiling finished with a dark stain, a staircase with small hearts cut into the occasional balustrade and panelled doors and decorative architraves leading to a very unusual sitting room with two arched semi circular bays fitted with window seats on decorative brackets and an impressive and very spacious dining room with square bay and door leading to the rear garden and like the sitting room, an original fireplace. The good sized kitchen/breakfast room complete with gas fired Aga, does offer scope for further updating. Beyond is a utility with cloakroom off.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms all of which have original cast iron fireplaces with three having three different coloured tiles set round the fireplace openings. The principal and second bedroom overlook the rear garden and have views over Beeston and open countryside beyond. On this floor there is also an en-suite shower room to the principal bedroom and a family bathroom. The stair case leading to the second floor, opens into a very good sized room currently utilised by the current owners as a studio/hobbies room.

The mature gardens and plot are also a feature of this house and extend to nearly half an acre. Within the grounds is a double garage which would lend itself to conversion to an annex perhaps for an elderly relative, subject of course to any necessary local authority approvals.
