Built in 1786, The Old Manor House is full of period charm and very handsome. It has been a treasured second home for many years and generated an income as a holiday let alongside family use for the last few. It is a beautiful period property, in the heart of Brancaster village and within walking distance of the sandy beach and golf club.
There are five good sized bedrooms, the master being on the ground floor with an en suite shower room, with four further bedrooms upstairs (currently arranged as two twins and two doubles) and a family bathroom. Downstairs there is a large sitting room - dining room with an open fire, and windows to both the front and rear of the property. The kitchen leads out to the conservatory with a dining table and French doors opening on the garden.
There is a utility room, downstairs cloakroom for guests to the rear of the house and even a cellar (perfect for storage or possibly a wine cave).
There is a fully enclosed garden to front, with a lawn and a paved terrace to the front of the house. The driveway runs to the side of the property and provides ample parking for two to three cars.
There is also a small annexe building to the road side of the house. Once upon a time it was the old Gurneys Fish Shop. It is being offered as part of the sale of the main house with scope to be developed to make a habitable annexe (subject to the relevant planning permissions being obtained) - potentially quite an exciting little project!

The Old Manor is currently both a successful holiday let and a much loved second family home. It is perfectly suited to both functions. With well over five years holiday letting history, the property is well established and popular with guests.
It provides an excellent opportunity to invest in a property that already has a proven track record of second income generation, in a super popular destination village, with scope for improvements both inside and outside (with the annexe), which would increase both the rental income and the overall value of the property.
Currently marketed by Norfolk Hideaways, there is a housekeeping team in place and ongoing bookings throughout 2019. The property can be available as a turnkey, with the future bookings transferred to the new owner on completion; so a seamless change of ownership could easily be managed.
Brancaster is a very popular village, situated on the coastal path in North Norfolk and boasting some of the highest value property on the market. This is due, in part, to the stunning sandy beach within walking distance of the centre of the village and the Royal Brancaster Golf Club situated on the beach.
The Old Manor is right in the heart of the village, positioned perpendicular to the road and within walking distance of the beach, golf club and fantastic gastro pub The Ship.
Brancaster is also famous for Mussels, which are truly delicious and available anytime there is an 'r' in the month. These can be bought directly from the mussel fishermen in Brancaster Staithe which is just a mile or so down the road. There is a great sailing club on the harbour at Brancaster Staithe and two other famous North Norfolk watering holes, The Jolly Sailors and The White Horse.
In the other direction from Brancaster, along the coast road, is Titchwell, Thornham & Holme, home to bird and nature reserves, more sandy beaches and yet more well established eateries, restaurants and shops. You are spoiled for choice in every direction!
