Property Description

The Property

6 Highfield Road is an attractive single story, detached, three bedroom property originally built in the mid 20th Century which has been completely refurbished with a new layout to become a fresh modern home.  It is ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac with only a handful of neighbours, just 5 minutes walk from the sandy beach and coastal path at Overstrand.

The whole property has a bright stylish feeling.  The walls throughout are Rock Salt Grey with white satin woodwork and lacquered oak doors.  The sitting room is carpeted and has large windows flooding it with light and a fireplace which could accommodate a wood burner to make the room extra cosy in the winter months.  

There are three double bedrooms, one to the front and two to the rear, all carpeted. The master bedroom has a window overlooking the back garden and features an en suite shower room with mains pressure rainfall shower, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.  The family bathroom has a bath with mains pressure shower featuring a rainfall shower head, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.  

The open plan kitchen / dining room is definitely the heart of the house, with a set of French doors and a glazed door out to the back garden.  The newly fitted kitchen features graphite grey units with stylish lighting at floor level, a breakfast bar with funky lighting over, stardust black quartz worktops and AEG appliances.  There is an integrated fridge / freezer, hob, oven, dishwasher and washing machine.   With plenty of space to have a dining table for six and potentially a small sofa, this room is both practical and comfortable for preparing food and socialising.

Outside

6 Highfield Road is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac.  There is a pretty garden to the front with both a pedestrian gate and path to the front door and wooden gate to the bottom of the drive.  The driveway is at the side of the property and leads to a good sized detached single garage with electricity and lights inside.

The back garden has a natural grey sandstone patio for al fesco dining (at the time of writing this is in the process of being laid, hence it is not in the photographs) and a slightly terraced lawn with railway sleeper features and a garden shed.  The back garden is south facing and not overlooked by neighbours.

The Location

6 Highfield Road is found on the outer edge of Overstrand and whilst it is easily accessible for the amenities in the village it means that the area of the beach close to the property

Overstrand is situated between Cromer and Mundesley, the village is rich in history and boasts very lovely sandy beaches which contribute to its popularity with second home owners and holiday makers alike. There are also a wealth of lovely walks and unspoiled countryside all around making it a popular destination for bird watchers and nature lovers too.

There are architectural gems like Overstrand hall and the arts & crafts Pleasaunce with its beautiful main house, manicured gardens, cottages and associated outbuildings all of which are quirky and interesting. Once home to Lord & Lady Battersea.

There is the great White Horse Pub and the Cliff Top Café if you fancy a bite to eat, and the crab shed where you can pick up fresh crab and lobster in season.

Cromer is just five minutes drive away from sleepy Overstrand and there you can find larger supermarkets, the train station, shops, cinema and all the fun that a traditional seaside resort brings.
