££695,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Cottage Sold STC

Set on the very easternmost point of this idyllic coastal village, The Cottage is an absolutely perfect blend of period charm and modern practicality. The Cottage is naturally entered from the garden through glass doors into the kitchen/family room, at one end there is a shaker style kitchen where you can enjoy stunning views over towards the coast whilst you set about creating culinary delights. At the other end of the room is an incredibly stylish, modern propane gas stove, which is a feature in itself and provides a snug focus to the room and there is also ample space for a dining table in between. This room is panelled throughout, which creates a completely appropriate coastal feel and with the french doors out to the courtyard garden along with floor to ceiling windows that mirror the glass entrance door, this room is completely flooded with natural light. Whilst it is the natural hub of this house all year round, it really is a perfect summer room. Beyond the kitchen is an extremely useful downstairs shower room with wall-mounted electric heated towel rail and WC, excellent for washing down after a day out on your boat and then you are through to the oldest part of the house and a room that encapsulates everyone's dreams of a period cottage. The reception room has wonderful original oak beams interlaced across its ceiling and an inglenook fireplace inset with a Jotul wood-burning stove. Who wouldn't enjoy snuggling down in this room after a blustery winters walk along the coastal path. There is a door out to the newly refurbished porch room, which is perfect as a boot room and for drying off wet sailing kit.

A 'Norfolk Winder' takes you up to the first floor where there are three good-size double bedrooms and, unusually for a Georgian cottage, a second bathroom, which also benefits from a wall-mounted electric heated towel rail.

Outside and to the front is a completely enclosed and recently landscaped south-facing courtyard garden that is part lawn and part patio and an old brick coal store, which has been transformed into the now essential home office and a logstore providing useful outdoor storage. On the eastern side of the house the lawned garden stretches along the full depth of The Cottage and not only provides ample off road parking for cars or boats but also the most stunning views of the Staithe and the coast.

The Cottage has been a much loved family holiday home for over 40 years, with three generations fully appreciating both the beauty and tranquillity of its location along with the water sports lifestyle that this village is known for but it is now time for its next custodians to continue its enjoyment.

BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE Burnham Overy Staithe is a small village on the North Norfolk Coast with a natural tidal harbour. It has a good gastro pub - The Hero. There are good walks across the marshes and long sandy beaches. It's close to Burnham Market with all of its amenities. Both Overy Town and Overy Staithe lie on the River Burn, and until the end of the Middle Ages trading ships were able to reach the village of Burnham Overy Town. Whenever a ship arrived a gong would be sounded at the top of Gong Lane in Burnham Overy Staithe, to alert the farm workers to unload the incoming goods.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity and drainage. Wall-mounted electric heated towel radiators in the bathroom and shower room.
