High Street, Cley, Holt, Norfolk, NR25


6 Bedroom Mid-Terraced House Sold

Amongst a famous coastline of breath-taking beauty, few properties can be considered true landmarks. The Custom House is one such property.

A highlight of Cley High Street in its own right, the imposing presence of this home is a sight to behold with an 18th Century red brick facade concealing generations of eclectic history and fond memories for the families lucky enough to call it home.

Rambling accommodation has a story to tell in every room from merry dinner parties in the dining room with a view of the High Street, to intimate drinks in the rear drawing room with mesmerizing vistas of the Cley windmill and marshlands beyond.

Across over 4,000 sq. ft. of enchanting accommodation, a purist approach to renovation and maintenance has ensured that the passage of time has only preserved and enhanced the character and splendour within.

The ground floor boasts an array of receptions, varying from an elegant dining room at the front with floor to ceiling panelling to a peaceful snug at the rear tucked away from the rest of the home. The central kitchen is flanked by a breakfast rom and a lounge whilst a scullery, utility room and shower room bring essential practicality.

A highlight of the accommodation is found in the splendid first floor drawing room with each one of three sash windows ushering in views of Cley windmill and the coastline beyond. The first two of six current bedrooms are found on the first floor with the principal suite ideally situated to catch yet more excellent views and boasting an opulent en-suite bathroom.

The second floor houses four further splendid rooms each as versatile as the other. Excellent bedrooms would be equally happy as peaceful studies, hobby rooms or inspiring libraries under the watch of the windmill.

The Custom House's commanding stature in the High Street naturally means that the outside space is superior to what most are accustomed to in such a prime location with a splendid frontage behind ornate iron gates and a spacious rear garden with a herringbone brickweave sun terrace and lawned area bordered by woven willow and well-stocked flower beds.

Pedestrian gates lead to the parking area and double garage as well as providing immediate access to the renowned Norfolk Coastal Path.

CLEY-NEXT-THE-SEA A haven for winter visitors and a breeding ground for rare native birds, the marsh can be seen from the windmill in Cley-next-the-Sea, a feature that this small coastal village is famous for alongside it's wonderful beach. The village has unique shops, two pubs, a church and two of the best food shops in England - The Cley Smoke House, for fabulous smoked fish and Picnic Fayre, a real delicatessen for the serious foodie.

Less than five miles away, a strong sense of community thrives among the proud residents and local businesses of Holt. Throughout the year, there are plenty of local events including a summer Holt Festival and 1940s Weekend, which takes over the town and 'Poppy Line' heritage railway that runs between here and Sheringham.

With a traditional butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer, the town even has its own department store and food hall, Bakers and Larners, a local landmark which has been run by the same family since 1770. On the edge of town is the historic Gresham's School, founded in 1955.

The town and its surrounding yards house a collection of chic boutiques and luxe lifestyle stores to explore and fill your home and wardrobe with beautiful things - linger and choose your favourite locally made fragrance at Norfolk Natural Living.

Life moves at a leisurely pace in Holt, and there are plenty of places to idle over a coffee or bite to eat. Believed to be the oldest house in town, Byfords deli and cafe is a central landmark and fabulous place to stop and watch the world go by.

If you are looking for the perfect spot to enjoy the coastal lifestyle, Cley-next-the-Sea is one of north Norfolk's finest coastal villages and if this sounds like your kind of place, let us help you to find your next property.
