    About this property

    • St. Annes is a most attractive Grade II listed village house, of distinctive brick and flint detail under a thatched roof. The house is architecturally distinguished, having been built at the same time as the neighbouring Grade II* listed Happisburgh Manor in 1900, and both to designs by the notable architect Detmar Blow. Blow deliberately used local materials such as flint, pebble, brick, thin tiles and Norfolk reed for the thatched roof.

      The house is centrally positioned within the village, elevated above the road, with a brick and flint wall along the boundary. The period detail continues within the house, with leaded windows, fireplaces and original joinery. With a south facing position the house enjoys good natural light into all main rooms. Of particular note is the spacious sitting room with distinctive fireplace with woodburner, the dining room again with fireplace and conveniently located next to the functional kitchen. There is a useful utility room and a further reception room currently configured as a study, and direct access into the integral garage providing a great storage space.

      The bedrooms are all on the first floor, with an impressive principal bedroom with en suite shower room. There are a further three double bedrooms, all with fine views of the garden, together with a well-fitted family bathroom, and a WC adjoining one of the bedrooms. All bedrooms are connected by a single landing.

      The house is approached from the north, sharing the drive to the Manor, with private parking adjoining the house and garage.

      The gardens are mainly to the south of the house, with an initial paved terrace from the house providing a ideal area for outside dining and entertaining. Lawns sweep away from the house, with gravelled pathways meandering through the grounds through established shrubs and open areas. Within the grounds is a most attractive potting shed and store, or traditional brick and flint construction under a thatched roof, which could be utilised in many ways.

    To me this is a definition of a Happisburgh house, with pretty brick and flint under a thatched roof. It has great presence.
