An exceptional coastal opportunity comprising a substantial main house set in about 1.83 acres, with coastal views and privacy.
Glebe Wood is a substantial detached house, enjoying a private south facing position within wonderful mature grounds extending to about 1.83 acres, in one of north Norfolk's most sought after coastal villages.
The house has been in the ownership of the same family since the 1920s and presents an extremely rare opportunity to refurbish and potentially extend the existing accommodation to create an impressive house in an enviable setting. Crucially the house can boast panoramic coastal views from the top floor lookout room, across the village to Overy marshes, Gun Hill and Scolt Head beyond.
The current house has a good balance of accommodation with the principal rooms all with charming views of the gardens, with the dining room leading out to a south facing patio ideal for outside dining and entertaining.
Glebe Wood enjoys a delightful setting amongst mature gardens and grounds. Set between two of the most sought after lanes in the village, Gong and Glebe Lane, the gardens provide privacy and seclusion within a village
The formal gardens are to the south of the house, with a large lawn sweeping away to a kitchen garden, and bordered
with well stocked herbaceous beds and beech hedging. The
house is adorned with climbing clematis and roses, with borders along the front including lavender. The grounds continue to the
east, opening out to an expansive grassed area, and dotted with some particularly fine specimen trees including beech, firs and flowering cherry. Within this area is The Hut', an outbuilding that could be utilised in many ways including an office space.
The main entrance to Glebe Wood is from Gong Lane, onto
a gravelled parking and turning area adjoining the garaging. There is currently two disused entrances from Glebe Lane.
The grounds, much like the house, offer excellent scope to fulfil individual requirements.
An application to construct two new dwellings in addition to the existing property was refused by the Local Planning. The existing house is termed a Non-designated Heritage Asset and is situated within a Conservation Area; this means that planning permission for its demolition and replacement may prove difficult to obtain. With this in mind, the sellers have
commissioned Atelier Associates, a local design-led architectural practice, to draw up plans showing how a new wing might be added to the existing building to transform the principal elevation and accommodation.
