About this property

  • Reef House is a substantial village house, tucked away down a small lane of similar scale houses. The private and peaceful setting provides excellent access to a coastal lifestyle, with the village centre, the famous quay and the coastal paths all within easy reach of the house.

    The house, set back from the lane, is an attractive Arts and Crafts design which has been altered over the years to create a home fit for modern day living with fantastic open plan living and spacious rooms, with plenty of natural light and spread over three floors. The focal point for the house is the impressive kitchen/dining/living space. With Aga, oversized dining table, island unit, clever cabinetry, limestone floor and a cosy reading area this is the perfect centre of family life, or entertaining guests, with glazed doors leading out to the stone paved terrace and outside dining area. A useful utility and boot room/dog room conveniently adjoins the kitchen. Double doors feed through to the living room, a further spacious room to enjoy with oak flooring, woodburner and French doors out to the terrace. The flow of the house continues with a generous entrance and staircase hall.

    A substantial landing on the first floor leads to all five first floor double bedrooms. These include the principal bedroom, a light and airy room of about 6m x 6m, with dressing room and en suite bath/ shower room, and located at one end of the house. The remaining bedrooms include built in wardrobes and a balcony to the second bedroom. The accommodation continues with a second floor comprising two bedrooms and a bathroom, with views of the coast between trees.

    Within the house is a self-contained ground floor annexe. This has external access, independent from the main house, with a connecting door enabling easy incorporation back into the house should it be preferred. The annexe comprises a room with a pair of French doors allowing in plenty of natural light, with a kitchenette, bespoke cabinetry and shelving, and a bathroom. This has been successfully let and previously used as a games room.

    Gardens and Grounds
    Reef House has the rare Blakeney commodities of private gardens and off road parking. Accessed from the west, onto a gravelled drive framed by attractive wrought iron park fencing, there is plenty of space of vehicles and boat storage.

    The gardens wrap round the house, with expanses of lawn and mature boundaries of hedging, raised herbaceous beds and shrubs, with the back of the garden backing onto neighbouring woodland. Along one side of the house is an extensive raised terrace, perfect for dining and entertaining, with one end enclosed by slatted fencing to provide a sheltered and private BBQ area complete with hot tub.

    A storage shed provide a useful space for coastal ‘kit' such as kayaks, kite surfing equipment and bicycles, but could be utilised in other ways.

This is such a great part of the village, tucked away down a lane that most don't know exist, yet within an easy walk of the high street and the quay.
