Property Description

The Property

Springbank is a stylish and unique property situated in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea just a few minutes walk from the quay.

It is an 'upside down' house, with all three bedrooms situated on the ground floor; two with en suite shower rooms and the master bedroom has a bathroom adjacent to it with a bath and shower over.  Also downstairs is the well appointed open plan kitchen / dining room, with French doors leading out to the courtyard garden to the rear, which is very light and airy, with large windows along one wall.

Upstairs is the sitting room with large sliding doors leading out to the roof terrace, with beautiful views out towards the pinewoods and the sea.  The roof terrace is perfect for relaxing with a book or a sundowner at the end of the day.


There is an enclosed courtyard garden to the rear of the property, with ample space for BBQ and outside dining furniture along with a shed for storage. 

Upstairs the star of the show is the large rooftop terrace, with stunning views over open countryside to the pinewoods and the sea. Large enough for outdoor dining furniture, sofas and even a sun lounger to soak up the rays. Accessible either from the sitting room or via a spiral staircase from the courtyard garden below.

Springbank has one private, off road parking space on the shared drive to the side of the house.  A huge bonus in central Wells!

The Location

Springbank is located on Freeman Street, just a few minutes walk from the quay and close to the main long stay car park in Wells-next-the-Sea. From your door, you can walk in to town to the shops - there is a bakery, fishmonger, butcher and great fruit & veg shop on Staithe Street and you can also stroll out along the sea wall to the beach in about 15 to 20 minutes.

Wells-next-the-Sea is an ever increasingly popular holiday destination in North Norfolk. The sandy beach with its pretty painted beach huts and pine woods behind, is ever popular, scooping the coveted title of British Beach of the Year from The Times in 2016 and there is a great beach cafe just off the beach at the car park.

In town there is a great choice of restaurants, cafes, pubs and two famous fish & chip shops to choose from and an ever improving choice of shops and boutiques to browse. The addition of the new Maltings building, North Norfolk's landmark cultural centre, a good sized Co-op supermarket and self service petrol station have also been a great benefit to the town.

Wells-next-the-Sea is located around 10 minutes drive from Holkham Hall and 20 minutes from Brancaster, Holt or Fakenham.
