Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Positioned a short walk from Yarmouth and sitting in large, well-established grounds and retaining many original features, the property benefits from its feeling of being close to open countryside, and an easy walk to the coast and town.

The current owners have made significant improvements to the property including: - major landscaping/planting works, opening up of the lawed areas and extensive re-turfing, a newly planted tropical orchard, new fencing. A high-quality bespoke kitchen and utility room has just been fitted and a new balcony has been installed on the first floor. An excellent sized Indian sandstone terrace was laid, from which fine views across the large garden can be enjoyed.

A large, two storey extension was constructed at the rear of the property which has delivered a stunning south-west facing kitchen/diner and an impressive master bedroom suite above. Furthermore, an extensive first floor roof terrace has been created to take full advantage of the view across the garden to the rear.

There is a large two-bedroom annex cottage called 'Ahoy!' which is self-contained and feels very much like an independent cottage with its own formal raised decked garden to the rear. Having been refurbished, this element of the property offers excellent additional accommodation/guest cottage to the main house but would also generate good income as a holiday let cottage.

Norton Cottage is situated on the outskirts of Yarmouth and a few minutes' walk from Sandhard Beach and the harbour with Fort Victoria within a mile. Yarmouth is a popular and bustling harbour town known for its excellent sailing facilities including Royal Solent Yacht Club and links to the mainland via a frequent car ferry service. The town itself offers a good selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, and easy access to many beautiful walks through unspoilt countryside and areas of outstanding natural beauty.
