Bluejacket offered all this in abundance. This distinctive and prominent coastal home was located in sought-after Cley-next-the-Sea, Bluejacket was designed by award-winning architect, Cowper Griffith and skilfully blended contemporary design with traditional resources; brick and flint, weather boarding and a grey slate roof. The interior provided a cool and contemporary elegance throughout.
Cley-next-the-Sea is a highly desirable small coastal village on the North Norfolk coast, famous for its beach and the windmill overlooking the marsh and River Glaven. The marshes are a nature reserve and breeding ground for rare native birds and a haven for winter visitors. The village has interesting shops, two pubs, a church and two of the best food shops in England. The Cley Smoke House, for fabulous smoked fish and Picnic Fayre, a real delicatessen for the serious foodie. The lovely Georgian town of Holt is less than five miles inland with all of its shops, banks and Gresham's School.
"Thank you so much for your help in the marketing and selling of both our properties. We choose Sowerbyâ€™s due to their staff. They seem to be a different brand of estate agent, helpful and courteous and very understanding. We have experienced both sides of the housing market with one sale that could not have been smoother and completed within six weeks and another that fell through twice, (third time lucky!) and that seemed fraught with difficulties right until the last moment! This is when the agents earn their fee. I am afraid at times I required a great deal of hand holding and found the whole process overwhelming at times, but with all your help we got there!! A huge thank you to all the team, we are now living in our dream home!"
