Few houses along the North Norfolk coastline can boast the exceptional panoramic views that this property can offer. The accommodation is immaculately presented throughout with great attention to detail from owners who have an artistic style and flair, reflected in the wonderfully diverse range of décor which is both beautiful and practical. Many of the principal rooms enjoy either access to, or views across, the garden to the coast, with a refreshing palette of cool, coastal colours and a French country house feel. Both floors feature extensive lime washed or white oak panelling to the walls and ceiling and floorboards, as well as beautiful finely detailed cabinetry. The ground floor has a potential guest wing with its own bathroom, sitting room and bedroom, whilst at the west end of the property leading off the elegant sitting room which has a feature stone fireplace, there is a generous conservatory/dining room with French doors opening to the garden. The kitchen breakfast room has a range of wooden kitchen units, central island and integrated appliances and a 4 oven oil fired Aga. The dining area opens to the garden with French doors.

To the front of the property there is a paved front driveway and detached garage/workshop and a gate leading to pedestrian access onto a path which takes you to the centre of the village bypassing all roads. The rear garden is primarily rolling lawns interspersed with established flowering beds and mature trees. There are a variety of outbuildings, 2 of which are used as studios, plus an original boat house presently used for storage with potential for conversion to additional accommodation subject to any necessary consents. With the BBQ area and paved outdoor dining terrace, this must be one of the most impressive entertaining spaces along the coast. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY North Norfolk District Council Band G __________ SERVICES Mains water, drainage and electricity, Oil fired central heating and Aga. __________ DIRECTIONS Approaching on the A149 coast road from Morston the property can be found of the left hand side as you enter the village just after open fields on your left, the driveway is just after a property with white gates. __________ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1.
