A Grade II listed cottage in need of renovation in the popular coastal village of Blakeney, near Holt, has hit the market at a guide price of £450,000, offering an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a project to create a cosy countryside home.

The property, on the market with Brown&Co, is situated over three floors and currently has three bedrooms. Its brick and flint façade and sash windows create an instant feeling of rustic charm from the outside and, offered with no onward chain, it is ready and waiting for someone to give it the TLC is deserves after a period as a long-term let.

Brown&Co notes that the property is Grade II listed, so prospective purchasers should consider this and the relevant permissions when costing for renovation works.

From the entrance porch, a large living room with a fireplace as a focal point welcomes you into the home. From here is the kitchen, which was upgraded a few years ago and so comes fitted with a roof light, modern cabinets with wood-effect counter tops and space for appliances.

A bathroom with panelled bath, wash basin and WC is located off the kitchen. A door to a outside courtyard also lies in close proximity to the entrance to an attached outbuilding, which could potentially be used as a utility or storage space.

On the first floor there are currently two bedrooms, one of which has a feature fireplace, and a WC with wash basin. The entire second floor is home to the large third bedroom, which boasts a high vaulted ceiling and a walk-in wardrobe space.

The rooms on these two floors would suit a variety of uses, perhaps creating a dedicated study space or turning the second floor into a luxurious master suite.
