Chapel Road, Trunch, North Walsham, Norfolk, NR28

££350,000 Guide

2 Bedroom Cottage Sold STC

When Half Penny Cottage was built in 2011, the architect went to great lengths to ensure that it seamlessly slotted into its central village location with the use of traditional Norfolk flint to the front elevation. Such is the character of the facade, and how it sits in its plot, that one would easily believe it is far older than it is.

The current owners were looking for a holiday home and in 2015 had the fortunate luck of staying next door, made some enquiries and before long Half Penny Cottage was theirs.

Nearby Mundesley is their favourite beach and seaside village so the house was a perfect location for them and with convenience to Cromer and the Norfolk Broads too, it has made for a brilliant place for them to escape to.

It is easy to see why the vendors loved the kerb appeal here. With parking for several cars, together with a garage, this is a real rarity with a village cottage.

Our vendors are keen gardeners and have spent a great deal of time and effort planting an array of shrubs making it a super area for alfresco dining and entertaining. During the winter the vendors favourite spot is sitting in front of the wood-burning stove creating a cosy evening. The ground-floor is open plan giving a great feeling of space.

Trunch is surrounded by countryside making it perfect for country walks or cycling. There are numerous footpaths and it makes for a great place to enjoy country strolls to local pubs or the coast.

Half Penny Cottage has given the vendors somewhere to escape to, relax, enjoy fresh air and get away from the hustle and bustle of their normal busy lives.

TRUNCH The small village of Trunch is situated close to the seaside resort of Mundesley and just north of the popular market town of North Walsham. The village has a church and public house.

North Walsham offers many amenities including a range of supermarkets, shops, leisure facilities, primary and secondary schools, sixth form college, doctors surgery and a cottage hospital.

There are regular bus and train services to the cathedral city of Norwich, where there are a wider range of services including an international airport and mainline railway link to London Liverpool Street.

This ancient city has been home to writers, radicals and fiercely independent spirits for over a thousand years, and today continues in its legacy as an enclave of culture and creativity. It's perfectly preserved medieval streets are home to a thriving community of small businesses, a vibrant food scene and an established arts culture. It is also a gateway to a county that continues to inspire people with its unspoilt landscapes, open spaces and big skies.

Named as one of the best places to live in 2021, Norwich lies approximately 20 miles from the coast at the confluence of the River Yare and the River Wensum, the latter still bending its way through the heart of the city. In the 11th Century, Norwich was the second largest city in the country, and today is still the UK's most complete medieval city. Strolling through the historic cobbled streets of Elm Hill, whatever the season, the Tudor architecture retains its character and beauty. Laced with merchant's houses, thatching, individual homes, speciality shops and small cafes, you'll be led toward the 1,000-year-old Norwich Cathedral.
To the north of the city the University of East Anglia is a remarkable example of brutalist architecture, and the campus is also home to the Sainsbury centre, a permanent collection of modern and ethnographic art, gifted by the Sainsbury family.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas fired central heating.
