The Property
A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a real gem! Canister Hall is a mostly detached period property packed with period features and charm and tucked away in the heart of the town. The property is thought to have been constructed in the 18th century and is rumoured to have been used as an ammunition store in the Napoleonic wars, hence the name! Well presented throughout, the accommodation comprises an L-shaped kitchen and dining room with an unusual central wood burner also servicing the sitting room. On the first floor is a bedroom and a bathroom. Outside, and to the front of the property, is an enclosed courtyard garden. The property is being sold with no upward chain.

The town of Holt was first mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) when it was credited with five water mills, a market and its own Port of Cley, which was attached to the Holt Manor. In 1708 the great fire of Holt destroyed much of the town centre, which accounts for the Georgian architecture found in the town today. The centre of the town comprises mainly individual shops and businesses where a friendly and personal service still remains. The town is also home to Gresham’s Public School. The North Norfolk coastline is about four miles distant with Salthouse, Cley, Blakeney and Morston all within easy reach. The County City of Norwich is just over twenty miles away from where there is a fast rail service to London Liverpool Street and an international airport.

From Pointens office on the High Street, take the second turning left into Shirehall Plain. Follow the road round to the left into Albert Street. The entrance to Canister Hall will then be found on the left hand side just past 19 Albert Street.
