Admiral Lord Nelson's father was Rector of the parish which included St Margaret's Church, Burnham Norton and in the graveyard lies the Master of the Cutty Sark, Captain Richard Woodget. The coastal path runs to the north of the village across magnificent expanses of saltmarsh and fresh marsh from Burnham Deepdale to Burnham Norton with beautiful sandy beaches at Holkham and Brancaster to the east and west respectively with far reaching views to local landmarks, Scolt Head Island and Gun Hill. The villages along this coastal stretch merge almost seamlessly into one another. Nestled amongst the brick and flint fishermen's cottages and bustling harbours are award winning restaurants, pubs, galleries and independent boutiques for discerning shoppers, as well as plenty of local amenities selling seasonal mussels, lobster and samphire alongside everyday groceries. There are leisure pursuits from sailing, cycling, coastal walking and birdwatching to lazy sun-filled days on the wide-open beaches - all within an easy radius of Burnham Norton. __________ DESCRIPTION 5 Marsh Lane is currently a traditional 3-bedroom cottage dating from around 1886. The property is owned by the Holkham Estate and is constructed of red brick and chalk clunch under cedar shingle roofing. Sitting on the north boundary of its site it faces south with lovely views over open countryside. On the North and east boundary, the site is protected by the original wall and this is retained by the current plans. The planning is for refurbishment of the existing property with an extension finished primarily in a red/orange brick in Flemish bond with areas of decorative projecting masonry. Panels of flint / clunch add interest and local reference to the facades. The roof is a red/orange pantile to reflect the primary roofing material within the conservation area. This contrasts with the roofing of the existing cottage which is a timber shingle construction. Vertical hardwood timber cladding in a natural colour is proposed to recessive areas. This is an amazing opportunity to create a 5-bedroom contemporary home with modern open plan living spaces, in a stunning environment, designed by award winning Cambridge architects Cowper Griffith. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY Kings Lynn and West Norfolk, Band D, Annual cost: £1759.76 (2019/20) __________ SERVICES Mains electricity, water and drainage __________ DIRECTIONS From Wells-next-the-Sea take the A149 coast road heading west, through Holkham and past the left turning towards Burnham Market, continue through Burnham Overy Staithe and after approx. 1.2 miles you will see a right hand turning to Burnham Norton, follow Norton Street until a sharp left hand bend where it becomes Marsh Lane, the property can be found on your left hand side as indicated by the For Sale board. __________ AGENTS NOTE This property is subject to Holkham Estate covenants please call the office for more information. __________ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1.
