BEST OFFERS to be received by Friday 7th April 5pm – A period detached 4 bedroom house requiring full renovation dating back to circa 1817 with large garden off road parking and located off the High Street.
Location Blakeney is one of the most sought after coastal villages in North Norfolk. The whole coastal area; much of it owned by The National Trust, is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, attracting both sailing enthusiasts and ornithologists. The village retains a unique atmosphere with many of the old mariners’ and merchants’ houses remaining in its narrow streets with others tucked away in flint walled alleyways. The main street runs down to the Quayside with its salt marshes and channels, with Blakeney Point beyond. There is a surprisingly wide selection of shops, public houses and hotels. A wider range of amenities can be found in the Georgian town of Holt, about five miles to the south.
Description Formally known as the ‘Old Calthorpe Arms’, the house dates back to about 1817 and has been owned by the same family since 1976. The property now requires updating and is constructed of brick, flint and rendered elevations under a pantiled roof. On entering the property from the side, this brings you into a reception hall area forming part of the main sitting room with fireplace and cast log burner. French doors lead out the garden. The main sitting room is quite open plan to the dining room with a long bar giving a more open plan feel to the kitchen. A door leads off the main sitting room to an inner hall and access to the ground floor fourth bedroom and bathroom. A useful second reception room offers great potential for perhaps being converted into the kitchen/breakfast room? Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a single and a second bathroom. Outside, to the front there is space for about 3 – 4 cars and there is a very useful outbuilding divided into two rooms and located to the side of the house and has electricity and water. The rear garden is a real surprise and has a good area of lawn plus patio and the whole plot measures just over a quarter acre (0.274 acres).
A ‘Vendor Survey’ is to be provided (see separate paragraph for special conditions relating to this survey).
