Friars Lane Cottage offers magnificent views over The Solent and New Forest Coastline stretching from Keyhaven to Portsmouth. This character property with a Mansard roof is one of only a small number of houses on the Solent side of the High Street to come to the market and offers a new owner a significant opportunity, with access to the sea, just a few metres from the garden. Yarmouth's High Street typifies a classic Georgian street scene with a mix of attractive period architecture.

Friars Lane Cottage would benefit from some modernisation, but already offers a good layout with fine views from all the principal rooms. There is a wonderful double aspect living room/kitchen/diner on the ground floor with focal fireplace and large windows.

The property has a generous sized hall with a WC/CLOAKROOM. The LIVING ROOM has a south and north facing aspect and is of excellent proportions. The KITCHEN is well-equipped with a range of wall and base units and a rear window with sea views.

A rear door/lobby leads on to a wonderful TERRACE. Please note that the owners of the double garage at the northern end of the Terrace would be happy to remove the timber trellis on their garage roof if a purchaser of Friars Lane Cottage wishes to delineate the northern boundary between the Terrace and the garage roof in an alternative manner in order to make the most of the panoramic sea views. Any alternative boundary would need to be erected on the northernmost end of the Terrace.

The first floor comprises of a MAIN BEDROOM enjoying some of the best sea views in Yarmouth. The large double bedroom has EN-SUITE facilities and built-in storage. There are TWO FURTHER BEDROOMS with a south facing aspect with a FAMILY SHOWER ROOM and roof light above.


There is a section of garden either side of the front door, just off the High Street. To the rear of the property is a wonderful terrace garden and a side access gate into Friars Lane, which is an ancient lane that solely leads from the High Street to the Solent - along side of Friars Lane Cottage. The sea is around 15m from the property with perfect access to head off paddle boarding.
