Property Description

The Property

Sloe Gin Cottage is a rare gem, a beautifully presented two bedroom period cottage bursting with charm whilst incorporating stylish modern finishes.  The living space is very generous, with a cosy sitting room featuring a beamed ceiling & wood burning stove and a further open plan kitchen / diner / snug opening out to the courtyard garden to the rear.  Upstairs there are two charming double bedrooms and a family bathroom.  The whole cottage is packed with period features and the love and care shown by the current owners is evidenced throughout.

Sloe Gin is a traditional Sandringham carrstone cottage and is set back from the road on a quiet street in the coastal village of Heacham, with off street parking to the front.  Situated just 5 minutes walk from the pub and a 15 minute walk to the beach, Sloe Gin Cottage is perfectly located as a holiday cottage, second home or main residence.

The sitting room lies inside the front door, a pretty room with a stripped wooden floor, wood burning stove, beamed ceiling and window out to the front. To the rear of the cottage is the charming open plan kitchen / diner / snug.  This lovely room features a natural stone floor and shaker style fitted kitchen with oak worktops, integrated dishwasher and a roof light flooding additional natural light and a window and French doors out to the courtyard garden.  There is plenty of space for a dining table and chairs and a comfy sofa, so that cooking, eating and relaxing are all possible in this sociable space.

Upstairs features wooden floors throughout and has a pretty landing at the top of the stairs.  The master bedroom is a good sized double room with a window looking out to the front of the cottage, fitted wardrobes and plenty of space for a king size bed, bedside tables and chest of drawers.  The second bedroom is to the rear of the cottage and is currently arranged as a twin room with a pretty window.  The family bathroom is also upstairs with natural stone tiling, a bath with mains pressure shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.


The cottage is set back from the street with a shingled parking area to the front.

To the rear is a sweet courtyard garden, private with fencing all around and paved with a pretty flower bed in one corner.  There is plenty of space for an outside dining set, BBQ and chairs to relax in the sunshine to read, dine or simply take some time out.
