About this property

  • The Property
    South Way is an exceptional single storey dwelling enjoying a wonderfully private and relaxing setting within a North Norfolk coastal village. With a subtle and discreet entrance via the common which is designated a County Wildlife Site, the property opens out to an enchanting 0.7 acres of lawns and fine mature trees with a stream running through.

    The house was the subject of a thorough programme of renovation and extension in 2019, carried out to a high standard and including a substantial Westbury orangery on the south-west elevation. This provides a superb open plan living and dining area, with modern open fireplace, open plan to the bespoke kitchen. This focal point of the house provides lovely views of the gardens with direct access to steps down to a gravelled outside dining area enjoying the afternoon and evening sun. A separate sitting room provides a more private and snug space and French doors out to the garden. A spacious inner hall, with electric retractable sky light, provides access to all bedrooms. The principal bedroom and bedroom two both enjoy vaulted ceilings and en suite shower rooms, with a further double bedroom with en suite shower room and two further bedrooms and family bath/shower room. All bathrooms are of a high standard and each bedroom benefits from plenty of natural light.

    Features of the house include engineered oak floors, a HIVE heating system, smart lighting, fitted shutters and under floor heating throughout.

    Garden and grounds
    The house is nestled within private grounds of 0.7 of an acre, providing a relaxing outlook from the house and upon arrival. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn immediately around the house, with well-established boundaries of mature trees and hedging including rhododendrons. A pedestrian gate in the boundary leads directly on to the attractive common and beyond to the village. The lawns continue, sweeping away from the house to the stream that meanders through the grounds. Beyond the stream is a wooded area with fine specimen trees including oak and alder, with a substantial outbuilding, formerly stables, on a concrete plinth providing useful storage for items used for a coastal lifestyle such as bikes and kayaks. There is parking for a number of cars.

I was wondering where the lane was leading until drawing into an almost enchanting wooded area, with path across the stream up to house. Idyllic.
