6 Bedroom House Sold STC
Situated in the heart of this exceptionally popular North Norfolk village, Tanglewood is an incredibly private detached house set in approximately one acre of beautiful gardens. Having been built by the current owners some 45 years ago Tanglewood has an extremely rare setting in that it has not been encroached upon over the intervening years as so many other properties in this and other coastal villages have. The house was designed as a family home and as such is arranged with a perfect balance of living and entertaining space downstairs with appropriate and proportionate accommodation upstairs. On entering this double fronted home the welcoming entrance hall has the formal drawing room to one side and the informal family room to the other, both south facing and both flooded with natural light. The drawing room flows through to the dining room creating an ideal space for larger family gatherings or for hosting parties whilst beyond this the kitchen breakfast room is substantial and with the west facing orangery leading directly off it, it is simply a perfect space for day to day family living. Upstairs there are five bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom whilst the other four share a family bathroom. Bedroom six is on the ground floor and with its en-suite shower room and separate access it is ideal for guest accommodation, for elderly relatives or wayward teenagers alike! However it is outside where this delightful home comes into its own with its beautiful, yet easy to maintain gardens. The house is orientated southwards with views over some of the garden and down the drive but the majority of the lawns are to the west and, with the small copse in the north west corner, and mature trees surrounding it, it is incredibly sheltered and private but with wonderful light. In the northern corner of the garden is a secret gate that leads out to a right of way that gives access straight down to Ship Lane and on to the coast. Outside and to the front there is ample parking for several cars as well as a double garage adjoining the house. In all Tanglewood has been a much loved family home for many years and whilst it has been lovingly cared for it would now benefit from some cosmetic updating but what makes this such a find is its stunning yet completely discreet location.
