Property Description

The Property

The Bungalow has been a much loved family home for several decades and offers an amazing opportunity for its new owners to put their own stamp on it.  The property is currently arranged with three bedrooms, kitchen with pantry off, sitting room with French doors to the rear patio, family bathroom and separate toilet.

The building itself is sound and well maintained but the interior requires some modernisation and updating.  That said it does have recently fitted UPVC double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating. 

The Bungalow is situated in the conservation area of the village, so advice will be needed to ascertain the kind of changes that could be made to the property in terms of extending out or into the roof; but it certainly offers fantastic scope to create a beautiful coastal home.   

Outside

The plot and position of The Bungalow has a great deal to do with its charm and appeal.  The Bungalow sits towards the top of a plot extending to around 0.25 acres (sts), with a parking area to the front and a long garden stretching down from the rear with stunning views over the meadow to the side.

Currently there is a detached garage to the front of the plot which takes up quite a bit of space and also a low-roofed shed to the side near the front door.

In the garden itself there are a number of outbuildings and sheds at the bottom end of the plot.

Immediately adjacent to The Bungalow, on the other side of the boundary wall, is an area of the meadow that has been fenced off with a gate accessing it from the garden.  This land belongs to the Holkham Estate and the current owners rent it from the estate to use as an extended part of their garden (see agents note).

Holiday Let Opportunity

The Bungalow has great scope to be a very successful holiday let.  It is impossible to give projection figures for the property until any work that will be undertaken on it is complete, however, when modernised it has every likelihood of having the potential to generate a healthy second income as a holiday let.

The beautiful setting and tranquility offered by the location of The Bungalow will definitely attract guests.  This added to the fact that it is walking distance to an excellent pub in an extremely sought after village and within easy striking distance of the coast are all attractive features to holiday cottage guests.

The Location

Perfectly located on the edge of the popular village of Warham, The Bungalow lies three miles from Wells-next-the-Sea. Warham itself has a great pub, The Three Horseshoes, dating back to 1725; the pub which has been recently refurbished is famous for its pies and boasts one of the last traditional pub serving hatches on the coast. And its just a 4 minute walk away from the property.

Warham is a small and a quintessential Norfolk village, with lots of brick and flint cottages. It boasts two medieval churches (in fact there used to be three). Set back from the coast, there is excellent walking around the village and it's possible to walk down to the coastal path and along to Wells-next-the-Sea.

Nearby Wells-next-the-Sea is home to the Instagramable beach, lined with colourful beach huts and the pine woods. It is home to a thriving resident community as well as being a hot spot for visitors to the area. There is a Co-op supermarket, post office, primary & secondary schools and a wealth of excellent independent shops, cafes, award winning chip shops and restaurants.
