Property Description

The Property

Garden Cottage is an immaculately presented modern coastal home a short drive from the beach at Heacham. Situated in a private location, set back from the road, with a handful of other properties.  Garden Cottage offers fantastic living accommodation for all the family either as a main residence or a second home.  

Built in 2014 the house has been fitted out to a very high standard with Neptune hand-built kitchen, cabinets and bathrooms and with oak and limestone flooring throughout. The ground floor is arranged with an entrance hall/study leading via a hallway with downstairs loo, to a large open plan kitchen leading onto the breakfast/dining room/sitting room with wood-burner and garden room with doors leading out to the rear. Off the kitchen lies the utility room with excellent storage and with the back door giving access to the side of the house.

Upstairs off the landing lies the master bedroom and en suite wet room, two further double bedrooms, large dressing room with fitted wardrobes and cupboards (originally bedroom 4) and the family bathroom.

Currently Garden Cottage is a  much loved second home that generates a great income as a holiday let when it is not being used by family and friends.  The owners have bookings in place for the summer of 2020 through to the end of September but after that there are limited bookings in place, so if Garden Cottage is to be a permanent home a plan can be made regarding onward bookings after September.

Outside

The stunning flagged terrace and landscaped gardens are south facing and offer plenty of space for entertaining and enjoying the warmer months. Whether it be lying on the sun loungers, enjoying al-fresco dining or sitting in the garden surrounded by well stocked flower borders, there is an area for everyone to enjoy. Garden Cottage is one of a small development of five properties sharing a walled access from the road.  To the front of the house lies a shingled parking area suitable for at lease two cars, which is private to Garden Cottage.

Garden Cottage is a successful and established holiday let, in a popular coastal location. Finished to a high standard inside and out, it continues to be a popular choice for visitors to the coast. The property is currently marketed by Norfolk Cottages, on a managed basis, so everything is taken care of from initial booking through to ensuring your guests arrive and have a great stay; with a housekeeping & maintenance team in place and ongoing bookings for the summer and to the end of September 2020.

The figures quoted are for the tax year 2018/2019, over the next two tax years the income has been slightly less due to family usage in 2019/2020 and of course the Covid-19 crisis affecting the beginning half of 2020.  More detailed figures relating to income and costs are available on request.

The property can be available as a turnkey by separate negotiation, so potentially no need to refurnish or have new marketing photographs taken.  With future dated bookings transferable to you as the new owner on completion; a seamless change of ownership could easily be managed. If you're looking to generate some income from your Norfolk home then Garden Cottage could be the perfect choice for you. It can not only cover it's costs but it can provide additional income alongside providing the perfect get away for you, your family and friends. 

The Location

Garden Cottage is located centrally in the village, walking distance to local amenities including shops, supermarkets and pubs.  

The popular coastal village of Heacham enjoys not one, but two beaches 'North' and 'South'. Heacham South, with its renowned Norfolk sand dunes, is a great walk for you, your family and dogs whereas Heacham North offers a picturesque promenade with beach huts for hire. It's a lovely walk along the concrete promenade to Husntanton (2.25 miles).

Another bonus to Heacham and Hunstanton is that they are the only to places on the east coast where the beach faces West, meaning its a perfect spot to watch the sunsets. It is also ideally located between RSPB reserves at Snettisham and Titchwell, a bird watching haven. 

The village offers plenty of amenities including two supermarkets, two butchers, a bakery (no candlestick maker, unfortunately) and a selection of smaller shops, restaurants and pubs.

Just 3 miles to north lies the Victorian holiday resort of Hunstanton a fantastic destination for families with a host of things to keep everyone entertained.  Throughout the year there are a number of regular events in and around the Hunstanton and during the summer months the programme of events is particularly packed.
