Property Description

The Cottage

This beautifully presented late Victorian, semi-detached cottage has been stylishly extended to the rear to create additional living space and a stunning principal bedroom above.  Tucked away in a quiet village location, yet only five miles from the bustling Georgian market town of Holt, this lovely home has two double bedrooms, spacious kitchen diner, cosy sitting room, a truly lovely south facing garden and plenty of parking to the front.

The care and attention to detail lavished on this cottage is evident throughout.  From the minute you pull onto the carefully manicured front parking area, it is evident the love the current owners have poured into the cottage.  On entering the front door you are welcomed into the kitchen dining space, which wraps around the cosy sitting room.  Details like the antique cast iron radiators throughout add to the charm.

The kitchen features a wonderful original church alter counter space, kitchen units designed by Michael Cottrell, a traditional double butler sink, Fisher & Paykal fridge freezer and Lacanche range cooker, with LPG gas hob and electric oven below.  French doors lead out to the garden beyond and there is a charming downstairs loo, with space for a washing machine, leading to the sitting room.

With a window to the front of the cottage, the sitting room is an oasis of calm.  Perfect for snuggling in front of the wood burning stove in the cooler months, or relaxing with a book or in front of a movie in the evening.

Up the traditional Norfolk cottage winder staircase to the bedrooms and bathroom.  The wonderful principal bedroom is to the rear of the cottage, flooded with natural light from the glazed gable end, a spacious room with charming dressing room off.  Bedroom two, another double bedroom is to the front of the cottage, with a window looking out to the fields beyond.  

The family bathroom has a freestanding bath, WC and wash hand basin.


Approached from the quiet village lane, there is a large gravelled parking area beautifully planted boarders and side access to the rear garden.

The south facing rear garden is a riot of colour in the spring and summer.  Cleverly planted and curated by the very green fingered owners, it is a lovely private space to relax in the sunshine.
