Property SummaryA delightful property in a peaceful rural setting just a few miles from the long sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast.
Neatly combining a traditional cottage ambiance with some thoughtful modern touches, this is a property bound to appeal to those longing for the rural idyll or perhaps an investor with an eye on potential holiday accommodation.
Grub Street is a narrow country lane running through open farmland and connecting Happisburgh Common and the small coastal village of Happisburgh itself, famous for its lighthouse, seaside beaches and popular owl sanctuary. The village has retained its post office as well as the Hill House Inn, which boasts its own brewery and is renowned for traditional fayre made from local ingredients. There is a village hall as well as a village primary school, which was rated good by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2015. The largest nearby conurbation is at Stalham, approximately five miles to the south-west. Amenities there include a Tesco superstore, a good selection of independent shops and businesses, takeaways, pubs and restaurants as well as a branch of Boots. Stalham High School was also rated as a good school by Ofsted at its last inspection in 2013.
The property lies next to Grub Street, with a gate opening onto the garden located in a plot adjacent to the house. Laid mostly to gravel for ease of maintenance and surrounded by head-high timber fencing for privacy, there is a slatted wooden decking area next to the timber shed. Some mature plants and shrubs also offer a little additional screening. A flagstone path leads to the front door, which has a glass canopy above. There is also a bike shed that can house around 3-4 bikes. There is outside lighting and external plug socket near the driveway.
The front door opens directly into the bright and airy kitchen/diner decorated in white with white base and wall units above and below solid-wood work tops. Vibrant, bright red splashback tiles are fitted above all the cooking and preparation areas, adding a modern and lively feel to the room, which includes a Velux ceiling window and access through double doors to the conservatory. An electric oven is located below a four-ring induction hob with a concealed extractor above while a stainless steel sink with drainer and chrome mixer tap can be found beneath a window overlooking the garden.
The slate-grey tiles on the kitchen floor continue beneath an arch into the living room which overlooks an open paddock to the rear of the house. The living room has Red brick walls on two sides that underline the propertys authentic country cottage ambiance. A solid-wood door also opens onto a hall, with one internal door leading to the downstairs WC and shower room and the other to the ground-floor double bedroom, also fitted with slate-grey floor tiles and offering access to the loft space as well as to the conservatory via double doors.
A second solid wood door from the living room opens onto a flight of stairs leading to the second double bedroom, fitted with carpets and with its own en suite shower room equipped with WC with dual flush, a pedestal sink and a tiled shower cubicle with glass splash screen.
The shed in the garden has been made into an office or could also be used for an extra sleeping accommodation and is fitted with full working electrics.
The property is double glazed and fitted with a modern, oil-fired central heating system with time and temperature zone controls. There is also underfloor heating. It also includes low-energy lighting in all the permanent fixtures, helping to contribute to a higher-than-average C rating on its EPC.
