The £600,000 HOME boasts a ‘jump, skip and jump from the sea’ place – but just a meter from a landslide-prone cliff edge.
The six-bedroom Cliff House has stunning sea views but has to be paid in cash because banks refuse to lend out mortgages because it’s too close to the edge.
It sits on 1.75 acres in Trimingham, North Norfolk, subject to coastal erosion and cliff slippage. An area the size of two football fields plummeted to the beach below in 2020.
House hunter Heather, from Newark, Essex, said: ‘I’m trying to buy a house.
“I was really surprised that they thought it would be a good idea to announce it. I mean obviously they get a financial reward, but really?
“A house near the shore is eroding precariously? I’m certainly not the only one who noticed it within half a second.”
Family-run estate agents Coast and Country say the Victorian home, which would have listed for much more if it weren’t on the cliffs, would be suitable for a full-time or head home for vacation.
Director Samantha said: “We have many buyers calling our office and asking ‘why is this beautiful home so cheap?
“Unfortunately, the answer is that it is priced in proportion to the fact that potential buyers cannot mortgage the property, given its proximity to the cliff edge.
“If this property were located on a more protected coastal area or a little further inland, it would be on the market for a lot more than the current asking price.”
House features include a heated swimming pool, a grand staircase and a grand foyer.
Its description on Zoopla says it also benefits from “beautiful sea views”.
