4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House Sold STC
'11 Hooks Hill Road' is a substantial Edwardian residence of immense character set in a generous plot of around 1/3 acre (STMS) and located in an elevated position in a most sought-after and highly regarded residential area with far reaching coastal views. Coming to the market for the first time in many years this fine period property was originally built in 1908 as a substantial detached dwelling and served as a school before being split into two individual semi-detached homes. Number 11 forms the major part of the building and preserves all of its ornate period features both inside and out. It would be more than fair to say that the property would now benefit from extensive renovation and remodelling but it does offer a rare opportunity to create a distinguished family home in a wonderful plot and located in a prime residential spot.
Extending to over 2,000sq. ft. and set over two floors the accommodation briefly comprises; Elegant covered front 'Veranda', double doors into a vestibule, impressive dining hall with highly decorative fireplace and grand turning staircase, dual aspect formal sitting room, snug/family room, garden room, kitchen area with utility room and store. To the first floor there are four individual bedrooms all with wonderful, elevated views, a family sized bathroom and separate WC. Glimpses of the sea and Sheringham Golf Course can be enjoyed from many of the first floor windows.
Set well back from the road with a deep and established frontage the house sits proud in its plot. A long, gated pathway and steps lead up to the front door and is flanked by a landscaped garden with shaped lawns and an ornamental water feature. Terracing and a delightful covered veranda provide elevated views to the north whilst a gated private driveway leads to a detached timber framed garage. The gardens flow by the west elevation of the property and pass the garden room with a terrace that provides wonderful views towards Beeston Bump and the coastline beyond. The rear garden is over 200 feet in length and rises above the house towards 'Franklin's Hill', a famous open space that occupies one of the highest points in Sheringham. The garden is stocked with an abundance of flowering shrubs, plants and specimen trees but does require attention. Pathways and steps are cut into the garden and rise up to a level area at the top of the garden where a summerhouse is perched to enjoy the most amazing coastal views.
This very special Edwardian residence offers a rare opportunity to purchase a true gem in Sheringham with immense potential. Hooks Hill Road commands an elevated position over-looking the town and coastline beyond.
