An Arts and Crafts period home which has links to a well-known local architect has come up for sale in Hunstanton.

The property is currently for sale with William H Brown for offers in excess of £750,000 and was previously run as a guesthouse, with eight en suite bedrooms. 

The home is one of around 16 Arts and Crafts properties in Hunstanton, which were constructed at the turn of the 20th century. The movement was widely considered a criticism of industrialisation and used simple, traditional craftsmanship to advocate for economic and social reform.

Architect Augustus Pugin, writer John Ruskin and artist William Morris were all linked to the style, and many of the properties in Hunstanton were the work of local architect Herbert Ibberson, who also lived in the town.

The property on Austin Street still boasts a number of distinctive features connected with the period, including several examples of beautiful stained glass, extensive wood panelling and large bay windows.
