An attractive four bedroom coastal house

The Flint House is an attractive detached four bedroom property thought of to date back to the early 19th century and is of brick and flint construction with rare outer gallets rendering under a tiled roof.

The gallet rendering is mentioned in Matthew Price’s ‘Building Norfolk’, ‘Three houses in Overstrand and Sidestrand have striking front elevations that are all gallet and no larger stones: this takes the fur effect to an extreme and makes the houses arresting even from the road.

The property is light and airy and offers spacious family sized accommodation with generously proportioned reception rooms. Of particular note is the open plan sitting room with views over the front garden.

The current owners have retained many of the property's original period features including exposed beams, timber floorboards, fireplaces and original sash windows.

Outside

To the front of the property there is space for several vehicles and a walled lawned garden. To the rear are further fawned areas, a secret garden with a pergola surrounded by shrub and hedge borders. The property benefits from several outbuildings including a studio, single garage/store, greenhouse and workshop.
