A superbly extended 3 bedroom ex-local authority house with 1st floor sitting room, west facing garden and spectacular coastal views. No chain

Sandpiper House is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented ex-local authority family house situated in what is arguably north Norfolk's most desirable village. The property has been completely remodelled and extended by the current owner to create flexible 2 storey accommodation including a first floor sitting room which makes the most of far reaching views to Burnham Overy windmill and Barrow Common across beautiful countryside to the sea.
To the ground floor, there is a spacious entrance hall with room for a desk and chair etc, kitchen/diner with separate utility, dining room/snug, a double bedroom and shower room. Upstairs, there is an impressive sitting room, 2 further double bedrooms and a stylish well equipped bathroom. The property has painted double glazed hardwood windows and doors, oil-fired central heating and natural oak internal doors and window sills.
Outside, there is a delightful front garden planted for all year round colour and interest. The pretty west facing rear garden has a small outbuilding and backs onto countryside.
Please note that there is a restrictive covenant on this property, which states that it may only be sold to a purchaser who has been resident in and/or worked in Norfolk for the 3 years prior to purchase. Please ask Belton Duffey for more information.
Sandpiper House is being offered for sale with no onward chain.

A nature lover's dream and gardener's delight, the property occupies an elevated position a short walk from the beautiful natural harbour, historic boat house and The Hero, a celebrated pub/restaurant. In summer, the marshes are purple with sea lavender along the walk to the golden sandy beach. Burnham Overy Staithe was once a working seaport and is now a magnet for walkers, birdwatchers, sailors and visitors to the area.
It is deservedly an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompassing the nearby Burnham Overy windmill, watermill and Scolt Head island accessed by locals wading across at low tide or taking the ferry. The whole stretch of coast from Thornham to Wells-next-the-Sea and beyond offers every amenity including local shops, delis, high quality hotels, eateries, chandleries and upmarket gift and clothing shopping in Burnham Market.
