4 Bedroom Semi-Detached House For Sale
Period splendour and an enviable, coastal position in the heart of Blakeney come together to create a very special residence and the rarest of opportunities.
Ivy House is a very special property that is blessed with a prime location set on the historic high street at Blakeney and just a short stroll for the glorious quay and coastline.
This handsome, Grade II listed house strikes a commanding pose amongst the charming and eclectic cottages set along Blakeney's historic high street. Coming to the market for the first time in several decades this classic, early 19th century house exudes period charm with ornate flint cobbles set within painted brick dressings.
The charming facade conceals a spacious home that approaches 2,000 sq. ft. set over two floors. Whilst the property would now benefit from a degree of modernisation, it presents a rare opportunity to own a true piece of Blakeney's local history.
Showcasing classic symmetry of its period, two formal receptions reside at the front of the house and are dissected by a delightful central hall. To the rear you will find a generous kitchen/dinning room, ground floor wet room and a practical storage area and utility space.
The first-floor features four generous bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a further wet room.
What really makes this fine property stand out from the crowd is the fact that it comes with a charming walled garden, off street parking and even a double garage. A charming period outbuilding set off the side courtyard provides practical storage space. This combination of features is truly exceptional for such a fine location in Blakeney.
Whether you are looking for that special home on the coast, a magical holiday retreat in one of north Norfolk's most prized coastal villages or a lucrative holiday let investment, Ivy House is hard to beat.
This magical location brings together all of the key elements to a prime coastal home. Amazing scenery, diverse marine wildlife and of course plenty of places to eat and drink - all of which is quite literally on the doorstep.
BLAKENEY It would be hard to find a spot which reflects the beauty of the Norfolk coast better than Blakeney. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, its picture perfect location is made for Instagram-worthy shots of moored boats on mud flats, under big blue skies.
When the tide's touching the shoreline, untie your laces and dip your toes in, take the plunge or push off with a slow drift along coastal inlets on a paddleboard or boat to lose yourself in nature's finest backdrop. Forage some samphire for a taste of the coast, try your hand at catching a crab on the quay, or join the tourists and take a boat trip with Bean's to spot the seals bobbing along on the water.
Despite the relaxed scene, Blakeney was once a bustling medieval port and the village's Guildhall and Church of St Nicholas are evidence of its rich, trading past which continued until the mid-19th century. As ships grew in size and the harbour silted up, trade fell away and today only small boats can pass Blakeney Point and head out to sea. Today, the nature reserve surrounding Blakeney Point is owned by the National Trust and thousands of nesting and migratory birds provide a twitcher's paradise where the tweets are tech-free.
Peace and, if you seek it, solitude are easily found in Blakeney, but if you are looking for company there are plenty of places to meet and make friends. Local boys Grey Seal Coffee roast their beans at nearby Glandford and its caf頩s a great stop for a caffeine hit - nab a bag or two and even some spent grounds for your garden. The White Horse and, for a fancy supper, The Blakeney Hotel are iconic spots to eat, and Wiveton Hall Fruit Farm Caf頭 famed by owner Desmond MacCarthy's Normal for Norfolk BBC series - is a great summer destination.
Teeming with character, there are plenty of pretty brick and flint fishermen's cottages in hollyhock-lined lanes, known locally as lokes, leading off the high street, along with incredible coastal family houses and stunning new developments. Blakeney truly is a place to discover your next Norfolk home.
