DESCRIPTION A superb and recently renovated four bedroom detached home with a self-contained annex, wonderful garden, a number of characterful outbuildings, a large double garage set within half an acre.

SITUATION Victoria Cottage is located in the hamlet of Norton Green, which is predominantly designated as a Conservation Area and is situated within a couple of minutes' drive of the harbour town of Yarmouth with its excellent sailing facilities and mainland ferry terminal. Approximately a mile away is the village of Freshwater with its range of local shops, services and amenities and access to several beaches, all within just a few minutes' drive making this property an attractive permanent or second home.

VICTORIA COTTAGE Dating back to 1661 the original building was enlarged with an early Victorian addition in 1840; the cottage was once the local post office. Now fully renovated, the current owners have been sympathetic to the period feel by tastefully marrying modern styling to the existing character. The main part of the property has a well fitted and sizable kitchen/diner, a boot room with WC and a superb sitting room. In addition there is an ample master bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further generous double bedrooms and an elegant family bathroom on the first floor. The older and particularly characterful part of the cottage is currently used as a self-contained annex which consists of a study, utility room, garden room and a delightful snug with stairs off to the master double bedroom with cloakroom en suite.

Externally, the property sits within a plot of half an acre and includes an array of wonderful flower beds in a good sized rear garden mostly laid to lawn with courtyard gravel area and 2 large apple trees. The majority of the planting areas are edged with reclaimed railway sleepers.

Victoria Cottage benefits from a number of useful outbuildings (some with retail planning use) including a large double garage which benefits from mains power and two double doors leading to the driveway (which can park several cars). The buildings within the garden include a greenhouse and stone barn currently used as storage but could make a wonderful holiday unit (subject to the relevant consents). Attached to the annex, there is a a brick/stone building with double doors and another storage building with a pitched roof, concrete floor and characterful timber beams.

SERVICES The property has mains connections to gas, electricity, water and drainage.
