Church Street, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23

££1,000,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Cottage Sold STC

Ebenezer Cottage, in sought-after Wells-next-the-Sea, was built in 1884 and is a traditional brick, flint and tiled Norfolk cottage. It has undergone many changes in its lifetime and unsurprisingly it is steeped in history. The garden was allegedly used as a "rope walk" where the hemp was twisted to make ropes for the local fishermen and shipwrights.

The cottage enjoys a very quiet, peaceful location with a large garden, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town yet close to all amenities. Ebenezer is found at the top of a shared yard (Cadamys Yard), but the property itself is gated and has ample parking space between the cottage and the barn.

Currently, the property is divided into two, with interconnecting doors on the ground floor between them, and serves as a main residence with two bedrooms on one side and a successful holiday cottage offering two/three bedrooms on the other. There is opportunity for the property to be used separately or together as one.

The outhouse attached to the cottage was once a coal shed and also housed the copper and mangle for household laundry. Opposite the cottage is a barn, which has also seen significant renovations. In years gone by it was used for stabling a horse and storage of a horse drawn trap, but is now used for storing garden equipment etc. The barn is where (subject to necessary consents) your imagination is tested to write the next chapter.

The garden is a particular feature. The secluded bottom lawn with roses and mature shrubs is ideal for socialising and relaxing and the top orchard area is dog safe and has fruiting apple and damson trees.

Wells-next-the-Sea is such a popular choice of where to live and holiday. Apart from the quay, the beach, the Maltings and the vast array of amenities, there is the beating heart of a community in this beautiful seaside town.

WELLS-NEXT-THE-SEA Wonderful Wells! With its sandy beach and pretty candy-striped huts, it's easy to understand why this sleepy coastal town is a Mecca for day trippers and holiday makers, but there are plenty of reasons to make Wells-next-the-Sea your permanent home and explore this sweet spot forever.

There are plenty of ways to explore the waterways that surround the area. For a nautical adventure, jump aboard one of the Coastal Exploration Company's traditional wooden sailing boats and adventure hidden creeks, marshes and open sea. Or test your balance with a stand-up paddleboarding session with Barefoot SUP.

The lanes behind the harbour and surrounding the town have plenty of tucked-away fishermen's cottages which are highly sought after, as are apartments with sea views in the converted buildings overlooking the harbour. Head out of the town centre to discover plenty of spacious, grand houses along with fantastic new-build developments which are ideal for young families and downsizers alike. With a bustling community, the town is well-serviced with a primary and secondary school, plus a GP surgery and library.

For a hit of culture, head to Wells Maltings, an elegant heritage and community centre just off the quay which houses a theatre, cinema, gallery and caf魢ar. While away an afternoon browsing the town's galleries - The Staithe Gallery, Gallery Plus and Quay Art - for some artwork to adorn your home. Discover gorgeous homewares at Nomad and the Bowerbird, relaxed country clothing at Christopher William Country and eco-friendly clothing and toys for little one at Ele and Me. Traditional butcher Arthur Howell is the place locals go to for high quality meat, and you might be lucky enough to bag some freshly caught fish straight off the boat, on the harbour wall. The Real Ale Shop at nearby Branthill Farm is a must for craft beer drinkers.

Alternatively treat yourself to a delicious meal at The Globe Inn or Crown Hotel overlooking the green, or push the proverbial boat out and head to Michelin-starred Morston Hall. For a simpler, yet equally quintessential Wells experience, share a box of fish and chips from French's on the harbour wall and watch the sun slowly set over the water. Imagining yourself here already? Let's find your dream coastal home…
