Wells Road, Burnham Overy Staithe, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE31
Prime location on the North Norfolk coast
A charming secluded coastal property within walking distance of Holkham Beach. The house benefits from well-proportioned rooms with views over the formal gardens and beyond. There is also a substantial barn with further outbuildings. Approached via a long farm track and surrounded by marshes and grazing meadows, the house, Dutch-gabled and with a mellow red-brick façade (c.1700) has an earlier core as evidenced by the exposed beams in the principal reception rooms and the carrstone quoins and clunch at the southwest corner. The accommodation provides well-proportioned, panelled reception rooms with ornate period fireplaces and south-facing sash windows. To the north of the house lies a substantial range of outbuildings which includes a large barn. The grounds extend to about 3 ½ acres and include two walled gardens, a pond, a meadow and a tennis court. BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE is arguably the most soughtafter of all the north Norfolk villages; a small village fringed by marshes, the Staithe is a popular spot for sailing with its natural harbour lying at the mouth of the River Burn whilst at low tide the channel is a fabulous place to enjoy the water with family.
