Drifters is a spacious, detached property on a private road in Winterton-on-Sea with a driveway offering parking for up to three vehicles and a small lawned area at the front of the property. A key box code is required to get inside the property, where you will be met with a grand entrance hall with lovely wooden flooring, leading through to a spacious sitting room which has two sofas and an arm chair, each positioned around the Smart TV with Sky package, perfect for unwinding at the end of the day, there are two sets of French doors that provide lots of light and lead into the huge conservatory, which spans the length of the back of the house. This is one of the highlights of the property, offering uninterrupted sea views, as well as a sofa from which to admire them and a dining table and chairs where you can enjoy home-cooked meals together and take in the incredible scenery. The generously-sized kitchen has lovely white cupboards with dark work tops and provides plenty of space for preparing meals, or perhaps a picnic to take to the beach, there's even a dishwasher so you don't have to give the washing up a second thought. The ground floor features two bedrooms, a king-size double and a bunk room, both overlooking the front of the property, both are very spacious and offer plenty of storage space for your belongings. A shower room with nautical-style decor of white tiled floor and blue wood panelling provides a walk-in shower and means there will be no fighting with people upstairs to use the bathroom! Heading up the carpeted staircase, there are a further two bedrooms on the first floor; the master king-size overlooks the sea and has an en-suite shower room for added convenience, while a twin bedroom with ample storage and more incredible sea views completes the line up. A charming snug can be found sandwiched between the two bedrooms, with a feature window that looks out to sea and a bookcase filled with books, it's the perfect spot for a quiet moment to sit back and enjoy a book, or simply to just admire your coastal setting. The family bathroom completes the layout and has a bath with shower over, so you can choose how you wish to get ready for each day. You can access the rear garden through the conservatory's French doors, where you'll be met with a patio area with table and chairs, ideal for alfresco dining whilst listening to the waves and enjoying the fresh sea breeze, there is also a large lawn and concrete steps that lead to a gate and down a path that takes you through the sand dunes and straight onto the sandy beach in less than five minutes. Winterton Beach is right on your doorstep; take advantage of walks along the sand, dip your toes in the cool waters or take your four-legged companion to stretch their legs as there are no dog restrictions. Winterton-on-Sea is a quiet and charming village, a couple of miles north of Great Yarmouth, and hosts a selection of shops, pubs, restaurants, a post office, beach-side café and award-winning fish and chip shop. The village is steeped in history, and dates back as far as the Doomsday book, while its Holy Trinity Church has elements that date back to the 13th century. Animal lovers will relish in a visit to Winterton Dunes National Nature Reserve , home to a host of wildlife including seal colonies and Natterjack toads. Head down the coast for a greater selection of beaches, such as Caister-on-Sea, while Great Yarmouth is just over eight miles away, famed for its glorious sandy beach and Time and Tide Museum.
