2 Bedroom Cottage For Sale
"For almost 40 years we have enjoyed watching the tide come in and the sailing boats flitter past."
Set back from the road, number two is a delightful period cottage, perfectly balanced and with the sort of views that have made this part of the country so desirable.
On the ground floor there is a choice of reception rooms with both a living room at the front as well as a separate dining room to its rear. Forming part of an extension carried out by the current owners, there is a contemporary kitchen and beside it a morning room, which benefits from that view down to the coast.
Upstairs and on the first floor there are two large double rooms, which share a family bathroom, and then a further set of stairs from the principal bedroom take you up to the loft room. This space has been fully enjoyed as an additional living space away from all the hustle and bustle downstairs. When the sun sets and the stars come out this room becomes an idyllic spot to fully appreciate the 'big skies' that Norfolk is famous for.
To the front of the house is an off road parking space, whilst to the rear the garden stretches all the way down to the coastal path. Open the gate, cross the path, place your paddle board or kayak in the water and you are out into the creeks and away to Scolt Head.
This wonderful period cottage has been a cherished home from home for the current owners for over 40 years and as such has been deeply cared for. Whilst they will be sad to say goodbye, they hope its next custodians will love it as much as they have.
