beach with picturesque beach huts.

The whole of this part of the North Norfolk Coast is designated as An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with excellent sailing, renowned bird watching and a network of coastal paths to enjoy. There are golf courses at Brancaster, Cromer and Hunstanton.

Burnham Market, which is about 6 miles, is a particularly attractive unspoilt North Norfolk village, now renowned for its excellent shopping facilities as well as good restaurants. The picturesque Georgian town of Holt, home of Greshams Public School, and with some excellent independent shops, is about 10 miles.

Lime Trees is a charming Grade II Listed terraced town house, situated on the Buttlands, with parking and a delightful south west facing patio and walled garden.

The property enjoys an abundance of unspoilt period detail with sash windows, original shutter and open fireplaces together with elegant rooms typical of the Georgian era. It is fair to say the house is now in need of renovation, presenting a wonderful and rare opportunity for a buyer to create an impressive home in this sought after area of the town.

The accommodation is over four floors, enjoying plenty of natural light. Of particular note is the sitting room and dining room, both with fireplaces and with a fold back partition allowing these rooms to be open plan if required.

The attractive walled garden, complete with old well house and gardener’s loo, will benefit from landscaping to present a wonderful private area to enjoy. The garden has a pedestrian access back to the Buttlands.
