Castle House, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk
This unique turreted house sits between two period properties in the popular seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea on the coast of north Norfolk, overlooking the gorgeous central green space known as the Buttlands.
Looking for a classy escape in the coastal town of Wells-next-the-Sea? Castle house is a very special, unique modern turreted house that's tucked between two period properties and overlooks The Buttlands; the leafy green square in the centre of Wells. Castle House is a real gem - comfortable and stylish accommodation for six, parking for two cars, a private enclosed garden - all right on the doorstep of this popular seaside town.
Looking at the house from The Buttlands, it appears rather dwarfed by its neighbours and could give the impression of being on the small side, but don't be deceived, this house is a TARDIS! Once you are through the front door and walk into the open-plan dining kitchen with its elegant comfy sofa and chairs, you immediately feel welcome and at home, and soon begin to realise there is a lot more to Castle House than at first appears. Built in 2007, furnished and decorated throughout in a fresh, contemporary style, there is a light and airy feel to all the rooms and the glazed canopy roof above the hallway and upstairs landing is a striking feature that floods the inner areas with light. The sitting room is at the back of the house and has bi-folding doors that open onto the paved patio area and good sized, private walled garden beyond.
Wells-next-the-sea is a charming, traditional seaside town with sandy beaches protected by a pinewood forest. ?Walk out the door and you are in the heart of Wells, where everything you need to make your holiday complete is just a short walk away - great gastro pubs, cafes, shops, the famous quay where you can partake in 'crabbing' and enjoy some of the best fish and chips around.
A light and airy open-plan room with oak flooring, modern fitted kitchen with polished stone worktop, and dining area with table and chairs. There is a comfortable seating area with sofa and armchair if you want to watch television while supper is prepared! The kitchen has a gas oven and hob with extractor above, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer, microwave and Nespresso coffee maker.
