An elegant Edwardian property in need of modernisation and just a few minutes’ walk from the beach has come up for sale in Sheringham for £400,000.

Tucked away just off the town centre and with partial views of the coastline, Drift Corner is a three-storey, five/six-bedroom residence that was originally built in the early 1900s.

Having been in the same family for years, it is in need of modernisation but benefits from double glazing and a modern gas-fired boiler.

Selling agent Sowerbys said: “With such an outstanding location, the property offers a unique and rare opportunity to create your dream beach side home.”

Drift Corner retains many of its period features including sash windows, open fireplaces and an impressive bay-fronted period façade with brickwork detailing. Inside, accommodation extends to over 1,800 sq ft.

The entrance hall is fitted with tiled flooring and includes under-stair storage and a guest WC. From here, the south-facing sitting room overlooks the front of the property through a large bay window and has an open fireplace.

The kitchen is located in the centre of the ground floor with a door and window to the side. Adjoining this is a large dual-aspect room requiring modernisation but offering “great potential for further enhancement and potentially adapting into an open plan kitchen/living area”, according to Sowerbys.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, each with a bay window, alongside a third single bedroom and a family bathroom.

Two further double bedrooms are located on the second floor, as well as a small box room that has been used as a single bedroom.
