Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Former railway worker's cottage situated in a private position on the edge of the Holkham Estate with stunning views over surrounding countryside towards the sea.

DESCRIPTION
Snuggle Cottage is a rare opportunity to purchase a detached single storey cottage in a private position with no near neighbours on the edge of the Holkham Estate. The property is believed to date back to 1867 when it was built to house the crossing keeper for the West Norfolk Junction Railway line. However, since the demise of the railways, the property has become a residential home conveniently positioned halfway between the coast at Wells-next-the-Sea and the Georgian market town of Burnham Market.

There is characterful accommodation comprising a kitchen with utility, sitting room with a wood burning stove, cloakroom, 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. Perhaps, the property's biggest feature however is the setting of its gardens and grounds. Amounting to approximately 1/3 acre (subject to survey), there is extensive driveway parking, a covered BBQ area with an elevated decked sun terrace making the most of the stunning views over the surrounding countryside and out towards the sea. A substantial timber framed building was previously used to run a business but would also suit conversion to annexe space or workshop/studio use (subject to any necessary permissions).

Snuggle Cottage would now benefit from a programme of light refurbishment but also lends itself to extension/improvement. Architect's plans have also been drawn up (but not submitted) for an extension and to go up into the roof space to really take advantage of this stunning location. Please ask Belton Duffey for more information.

SITUATION
Conveniently situated midway between Burnham Market and Wells-next-the-Sea, Snuggle Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore all that north Norfolk has to offer.

Wells-next-the-Sea is an attractive Georgian coastal town which has many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or close by in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, accommodation and restaurants, school, doctor's surgery, 2 supermarkets, newly opened petrol station, bank and a full range of diverse, independent shops. 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.

Burnham Market is a thriving village with a full range of shops which include a wine merchants, butchers, chemist, numerous boutiques, Post Office, antiques shop, doctor's surgery, dentist, jewellery shop, garage, a fine parish church and a range of hostelries including the famous "Hoste Arms" hotel. Burnham Market centre is situated around a village green with mainly Georgian houses in what is considered an extremely desirable village.
