Property Description

The Property

Located in the heart of the popular seaside town of Cromer, Surf Cottage in Brook Street is a stunning Grade II Listed converted four bedroom townhouse, originally a shop, set over three floors.  The house is beautifully renovated to an extremely high standard and run as a successful holiday let by the current owners.  Excellently located within walking distance of the beach and town centre.  

The property benefits from four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a well laid out kitchen and sitting room/dining room leading out to a private courtyard garden, perfect for a morning cup of tea or evening drink. The living space is flooded with natural light coming through the shop front windows and has retained plenty of original features.  

Approached through its own front door, the large entrance hall on the ground floor has lots of room for coats, shoes and beach gear.  Off the hall is the downstairs loo, large understairs storage cupboard, kitchen and sitting/dining room.  The staircase off the hall leads up to the first floor landing, with three bedrooms and one bathroom and the second floor with the principle bedroom and ensuite.  

The kitchen is newly fitted, Shaker style with a stone worktop and built in units top and bottom, an integrated electric fan oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, freezer and washing machine and plumbing for an under counter fridge as well as plenty of work top space for cooking. The sitting room/dining room overlooks the private courtyard garden and is a wonderful spacious room with sunshine streaming through the French doors and windows and with plenty of room for a dining table at one end and sofas at the other.  

On the first floor are three beautiful bedrooms, two doubles and a single, which currently works well with bunks beds.  There is a family bathroom with a walk in shower, hand wash basin and loo.

At the top of the house on the second floor is the impressive principal bedroom with fabulous views over the roof tops of Cromer.  There is an ensuite with a bath and a shower over, a hand wash basin and loo.

The property is available as a turnkey, complete with all the furniture and fittings and white goods (barring some personal items) by separate negotiation.


The private courtyard garden leads off the dining/sitting room and is perfect for a morning cup of tea or a quiet drink in the evening after a long day at the beach.

There is no parking directly at the property, but street parking in Cromer is unrestricted and season tickets allow use of many north Norfolk car parks under a single purchase.
