Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique period coastal residence and one of Blakeney's finest hidden gems. This highly individual home, set in mature gated grounds approaching 0.5 acre (sts), boasts extensive and well-proportioned accommodation approaching 2500 sq ft all set across two floors and with the principle rooms all commanding magnificent marsh and coastal views.

Cleverly converted from what was originally the ballroom to a magnificent private residence this substantial 'wing' has been a much loved coastal holiday home for many years and provided the perfect base for the present owners to enjoy and embrace the delights of the area and the extensive sailing facilities.

The centre piece to the property is a magnificent panelled drawing room that features Corinthian style pillars and uninterrupted coastal views through an impressive floor to ceiling five bay feature window. Further accommodation includes a formal dining room with equally impressive views and French doors onto an elevated terrace, well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, study and 4/5 bedroom options set over the two floors with flexible bathroom facilities.

Externally this fine property continues to impress and surprise with a substantial gated plot approaching half an acre with undulating lawns, extensive secure parking and panoramic coastal views. An external staircase rises above the property and leads to the most amazing roof terrace that commands breath taking views across Blakeney's historic coastline. The property enjoys a discreet location set off back Lane yet is just a short stroll from The Quay. 

SITUATION/LOCATION The property is set in mature gated grounds perched above the historic coastal path at Blakeney and enjoying arguably some of the finest marsh and coastal views in North Norfolk. Located just off Back Lane the property benefits from a surprisingly peaceful and discreet environment yet is just a short stroll from the vibrant centre of Blakeney and The Quay. An area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Blakeney is filled with flint cottages, narrow streets and hid-den alleys. Food and drink options are a plenty in Blakeney from the traditional coastal pub The Kings Arms to the more gastronomic fayre at The White Horse, you really are spoilt for choice. The Moorings is a charming cafe by day and a renowned bistro restaurant by night and a short walk away is Wiveton Hall Cafe, which is well worth a visit. Offering panoramic views across the estuary and salt marshes, Blakeney enjoys big skies and tranquil walkways. The Blakeney National Nature Reserve is one of the largest expanses of undeveloped coastal habitat of its type in Europe. It has long been recognised as a highly important area for its wide range of rare coastal plants and wildlife. The vast areas of unusual habitat such as pristine salt marsh, vegetated shingle and sand dunes, attract a colourful array of wildlife from uncommon sea birds to the seals colonies that prosper on Blakeney Point. Needless to say the area is incredibly popular with nature lovers and birdwatchers. Although there are some restricted areas during the main bird breeding season the nature reserve is largely free to roam. Seal trips by boat run from Blakeney and the nearby village of Morston out to Blakeney Point and are extremely popular. 'A Coastline to Explore', Blakeney is well placed for exploring the stunning north Norfolk coastline. From wildlife reserves and sweeping beaches, to seal watching and quirky pubs - the attractions are plentiful.
