Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome Grade II listed Georgian former rectory traditionally constructed of brick under a slate roof with a later Regency part of the house constructed of local Holkham brick. Throughout the house, there are many original period features associated with the best of Georgian architecture including fine plaster cornice work, full length shuttered sash windows, an elegant principal staircase and light, bright and well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings, so typical of the period.

The house extends to over 6000 sq. ft. and has well-arranged accommodation with the three main reception rooms on the south side of the house overlooking the extensive lawned gardens. Within the house, there is currently a two-bedroom apartment, which has its own staircase, and separate external access and this could easily be reincorporated into the main body of the house if desired. There is also a useful one bed flat situated above the garaging and workshop in the old coach house. In recent years, the property has had extensive renovations with improvements made to primarily the heating system, kitchen, swimming pool & grounds.

The house is approached from the northeast via a gravelled drive, which leads to a large gravelled turning and parking area situated to the front and east of the property. Situated to the north there is a further extensive gravelled parking area together with the former coach house which provides garaging for two cars with the one bedroom flat above.

The gardens are a most attractive feature of The Old Rectory and are laid out as follows. Situated to the south of the house there is a large expanse of formal lawned garden, which is overlooked by the main reception rooms in the house. The gardens and grounds contain a variety of magnificent mature trees including horse-chestnut and lime with these areas under-planted with spring bulbs.

The gardens are bounded by a fine old brick and flint wall to the west. Situated to the east there are further areas of lawn and mature ornamental trees including a fine hornbeam. Situated to the west of the house there is a sheltered paved terrace area overlooking a separate area of garden, which houses the heated swimming pool. The swimming pool, which has recently been over-hauled and improved, is separately hedged, fenced or walled from the rest of the garden. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 0.85 of an acre (sts). This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a substantial period residence in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea and as such early viewing is highly recommended. 

SITUATION/LOCATION Wells-next-the-Sea is a highly desirable coastal town set behind a small harbour on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast. The town has a maze of narrow streets, old alleys and yards, filled with shops, pubs and cafes and there are many listed and impressive Georgian and Victorian buildings. The town has a doctors' surgery, library, community hall, primary, and secondary schools, and, for those that enjoy the water a public house on a boat. Wells-next-the-Sea is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
