Pretty period property in North Norfolk

This four bedroom cottage on the North Norfolk coast would make an ideal holiday home.

Situated in Burnham Overy Staithe, a small village on the North Norfolk coast, is Rahere cottage, a pretty period property with an enclosed south facing garden. Currently run as a very successful holiday let, it would also make a fantastic full time home and there is also planning permission to expand the existing 4 bedroom residence into a larger five bedroom, three/four bathroom property.

Rahere cottage has retained many of its many original features including oak panelling, open fireplaces, pamment tiled floors and floorboards. On the ground floor the accommodation comprises a sitting room with triple aspect windows, a dining room with two Georgian sash windows, an inner hall / boot room and a kitchen / breakfast room overlooking the garden. Upstairs, four good sized bedrooms can be found plus the family bathroom, which also overlooks the garden.
