3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

Designed and created by the current owner as their main home, the thoughtfulness and exquisite attention to detail in the finish is evident throughout this property.

From the roadside The Boat House appears exactly as you might imagine. However, once you step through the double gates you realise that it is so much more.

On the ground floor a pair of bi-folding doors pull back to reveal the open plan reception, kitchen and dining room. The proportions of this room are exceptional with the exposed beams and limestone floor giving it an almost barn-like feel with the black and chromed log burning stove making a central feature of the room and balancing it perfectly.

To the rear there are two very generous double bedroom suites, one with a bath and shower, the other with a double-width shower, and all presented in an incredibly tasteful and elegant manner.

The Boat House has two further living and entertaining spaces.

To the rear is a summer room which adjoins the main house and this room has been positioned in order to sit and watch the sun set in the west, either with the bi-folding doors open in the summer or pulled snuggly shut in the winter. It is also a room that has served as a temporary bedroom, as well as a home office and gym.

The final space is completely separate to the main home and is quite simply the exact answer to enjoying the outdoor life without ever having to worry what the English climate might decide to do.

The Garden Room is a timber structure that is partially enclosed with glass but with the ability to fully enclose with roll down sides should the wind pick up. It is an idyllic place to entertain friends with plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. Equally, where better to sit in the shade with a book and listen to the breeze rustling the leaves above you? It can even double as a boat or motorbike store.

Finally, there are four off-street parking spaces to the front and there is also a separate workshop, as well as a storage shed, at the side of the building.

The Boat House is quite simply one of the most original, flexible and practical properties ever to come to the market in this beautiful north Norfolk village, not only that but its presentation and finish are nothing short of impeccable. Put all that together, add in those spectacular views and privacy and you have one of the most perfect homes you could possibly find.

BURNHAM MARKET Treasured memories of family holidays, a day at the world famous horse trials or a well-earned afternoon spent browsing its pretty boutiques - there are plenty of ways to experience Burnham Market, the jewel in north Norfolk's glittering crown.

Located close to the mouth of the River Burn, believed to be the source of its name, the village has long been associated with naval hero Admiral Horatio Nelson, who lived at nearby Burnham Thorpe.

A refined elegance permeates every aspect of village life, from the traditional homewares found at Uttings, the locals 'go-to' for household essentials, to sampling tasty treats at the Tuscan Farm Shop, Humble Pie Deli or Gurneys Fish Shop - this is a place to savour the finer things. Eating out is also a joy with award winning Socius serving a British-inspired tapas menu on the edge of Foundry Place, and NoTwenty9's bar, restaurant and courtyard provides a relaxed spot to wine and dine on warm summer's nights.
Fashion counts on the Champagne coast and for chic style head to Anna's boutique or 'next gen' department store Percy Langley, make it fancy at The Hat Shop, go country at Gun Hill Clothing Company or casual at Joules or Jack Wills. For a little culture, peruse Burnham Market's art galleries - the Fairfax Gallery has been exhibiting for more than 20 years and Pococks the Artmonger has an eclectic display. Or if you have little ones in tow, don't miss a trip to Mable's - unmissable with its pretty pink frontage - where you can encourage their artistic talent with a pot painting session or treat them to a bag of traditional sweets.

It goes without saying that Burnham Market and its smaller siblings, Burnham Deepdale, Burnham Norton, Burnham Overy Staithe and Burnham Thorpe, are home to some of the finest houses on the coast. Whether your dream is a Georgian classic, a traditional cottage or a sleek, contemporary house, this is an incredible place to discover your forever home.
