About this property

  • This is the dream for many. A bungalow, either in need of refurbishment, extending or with the tantalising thought of replacing, in a rural setting yet close to a well-served village, with outstanding and uninterrupted views, with over an acre of land and all within two miles of the North Norfolk coastline. It really is a golden opportunity, the sort that many well drive by in years to come and think, ‘why didn't we buy that'.

    A house in this setting is rare in its own right. The context to that is this formed part of a farm owned by the council, including the nearby range of traditional Norfolk barns and associated farmhouse, and the surrounding land. Our clients were long time tenants of that farm, during which the bungalow was built. Over the years the barns, farmhouse, and land were split up and sold, in the usual fashion. Field House Farm Bungalow, even now, holds the most exceptional potential of that farm dispersal.

    The property enjoys a brilliant position, off a country lane, with wide open views over the countryside around it and as a result, the most stunning sunsets to the west that can be fully enjoyed from the house. The foot print of the current house is just over 1000 sq ft, with a conventional layout of the kitchen, sitting room and dining room at one end, and three bedrooms and a shower room at the other. The kitchen was replaced relatively recently, and the house has been well maintained but is dated in areas. Given the elevated setting of the house, the house has full sight of the views.

If I had a pound for the times I have been asked for a bungalow, near the coast, with an acre or so, and views….. they are like hens teeth.

Local information

  • The property is located just to the south west of Binham. The village is deservedly one of the most popular of the traditional brick and flint villages lying just inland from the North Norfolk Coast and still retains everyday facilities including a village shop, public house ‘The Chequers, and the fantastic café/farm shop ‘The Parlour and ‘The Little Dairy', set beside the priory in traditional farm buildings, serving excellent local food and selling local dairy produce with a cheese vending machine, raw milk and coffee. The priory church of Binham, a former Benedictine priory with some impressive monastic ruins and the fine priory church with its splendid 13th century west front, is within view of the house.

Holt is also the home to Greshams Preparatory and Public School. Beeston Hall Preparatory School is further along the coast between Sheringham and East Runton. The North Norfolk Coast at Stiffkey is only 1.5 miles to the north and Blakeney about three miles.
