Located on the North Norfolk coast, the village of Bacton offers beautiful sandy beaches. The county capital of Norwich is approximately 20 miles and the market town of North Walsham is approximately 6 miles and a regular bus service passes through the Village. There is a small selection of local shops and restaurants and a Public House.
The Lodge itself is an exceptional period property with a wealth of character within, such as exposed beams, inglenook fireplace, polished wood block flooring and oak skirting. A later extension provides for a three bedroom cottage capable of providing a useful income or providing annexe accommodation for a family member. Also attached to the property is a small shop, suitable for us as a small boutique or craft shop.
The gardens are a real joy, extending in all to approximately 2.5 acres (subject to a measured survey) These are formal grounds and include a tennis court.
The property is entered via an enclosed porch with a wood panelled ceiling which in turn leads to a lobby providing access to the cloakroom. The lobby also provides access via a heavy wooded door to the magnificent Reception Hall complete with bar, polished wood block flooring, exposed ceiling beams and fireplace. A window to the front of the property. Off the Reception Hall is a magnificent Sitting Room/Library with a wide semi-circular bay to the front, and one wall fitted with a central fireplace housing a multi fuel stove and beautiful oak book selves either side. The dining room sits at the rear of the library and is another fantastic room with its wide bay window overlooking the grounds, oak panelled curved ceiling and original fireplace with oak surround. The family room opens out to the gardens through French Doors and also has wood block floor, exposed ceiling beams and an original serving hatch too. This room then leads to the Breakfast Room which is beautifully proportioned with access to the utility room and ample built in storage. A feature of this room is the gas fired Aga. The kitchen comes next with a comprehensive range of base and wall storage cupboards with integrated hob, oven and walk-in pantry. Returning to the lobby there is a further inner hallway leading to the sauna and shower room and completing the ground floor of the main house is the garden room which, as expected provides access to the rear garden.
