Cromer Road, Holt, Norfolk, NR25


5 Bedroom Semi-Detached House Sold

'McKinley House' is a fine late Georgian red brick residence of character and style located just yards from the centre of Holt yet offering an 'oasis' setting within it's wonderful walled gardens. Elegant period homes of this size, with impressive grounds and with such a central location rarely come to the open market so 'McKinley House' is truly a unique offering.

The house boasts classic Georgian architectural features with an imposing double fronted elevation, fine red brick bays and ornate sash windows. The period detail continues inside the house with ornate panelled doors, picture rails and open fireplaces. The house would now benefit from a degree of modernisation as the present owners have enjoyed life in the house for over 40 years but it offers the rarest of opportunities to enhance and adapt a classic period building into a splendid second home/holiday let or fine main residence.

Set over two floors and extending to over 2000 sq. ft. the accommodation briefly comprises; Central entrance hall, delightful formal sitting room, formal dining room, rear snug with open fireplace, kitchen with walk-in pantry, conservatory and cloakroom.

To the first floor is a central landing that leads to three impressive double bedrooms, one with en suite shower, a fourth single bedroom, a small occasional fifth bedroom or study and a spacious family sized shower room.

On the East elevation of the house is an attached barn style double garage and private gated parking for several cars. The South facing rear garden is a true delight with an extensive brick paved sun terrace leading on to sprawling lawns that are peppered with established shrubs, flowering beds, a fine selection of mature trees and enclosed by high brick & flint walls. There is also a timber summerhouse and greenhouse. The house is conveniently positioned on the Cromer Road just a short stroll from Holt town centre yet enjoying a high degree of privacy.

SITUATION 'McKinley House' commands an enviable and highly convenient position nestled just yards from Holt's eclectic town centre but is set in picturesque walled gardens with a high degree of privacy. Holt is one of the most attractive small towns in Norfolk in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The town existed before the Norman invasion but was destroyed by fire in 1708. It had to be rebuilt and we're very lucky that the timing meant that the Georgian style was used. The main street is lined with colour-washed Georgian buildings, many of architectural importance. There are tea and coffee shops, lots of antique and curio shops, food shops and delicatessens, banks, independent shops and, of course, historic Gresham's School founded in 1555. The North Norfolk coast at Blakeney is six miles away due north. There is good sailing, golf, bird watching and many good beaches nearby. The North Norfolk Steam Railway has its terminus on the outskirts of the town and connects Holt with the seaside resort of Sheringham six miles away. The cathedral city of Norwich is just twenty-six miles distant. From Norwich, there are direct trains to London Liverpool Street and Norwich Airport is a convenient worldwide gateway via Schiphol Airport.
