Property Description

3 PROPERTIES. Rare opportunity to acquire 3 self-contained properties right in the heart of town at Wells-next-the-Sea.

DESCRIPTION
1-3 Barn Cottages is a rare opportunity to purchase 3 self-contained residential properties right in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea and just a moment\'s walk from the town\'s main shopping street and the Quay. The property dates back to the early 1800s when it was built to house and maintain the Wells steam engine which was pulled out of the barn on railway tracks to Standard Road and to the Quay to power the machinery for the construction and work on the ships.

In more recent years, the current owner\'s family has converted the building to now provide 3 self-contained residential properties. Number 1, which the owner lives in, has 2/3 bedroom accommodation with a workshop and courtyard garden. Number 2 is a bedsit which has been a long-term let (now vacant) and Number 3 is a 1 bedroom holiday let with a small courtyard garden. However, the properties do lend themselves to other potential uses and reconfiguration (subject to the necessary permissions) offering scope to provide a permanent home, second home and/or a holiday lettings business. Please ask Belton Duffey for more information.

SITUATION
Wells-next-the-Sea is an attractive Georgian coastal town with good access to the market towns of Fakenham, King\'s Lynn, Holt and Norwich. Wells-next-the-Sea has many amenities and leisure activities on offer in the town or close by in the neighbouring coastal villages including, sailing, bird watching, walking, first class accommodation and restaurants, nursery, primary and secondary schools, doctor\'s surgery, 2 supermarkets, bank and a full range of diverse, independent shops.

The Quay is still the hub of the town with the familiar sight of \"gillying\" - fishing for shore crabs and the resident Dutch sailing ketch Albatros alongside the small fishing fleet and growing number of leisure craft. The beach, a mile along the beach road and accessible via the sea wall walk, car or the small railway, boasts beautiful sands, dunes and colourful beach huts fringing the pinewoods.
