6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
As those familiar with the North Norfolk coast will know there is one address that supersedes all others, Herrings Lane in the heart of Burnham Market. Gently rising upwards from the village green, this lane is home to an eclectic mix of properties, from dainty period cottages through to sleek, stylish and modern town houses and none better than Saltmarsh House. Sitting atop the hill and with the most extraordinary panoramic views of the coastline, Saltmarsh House is a stunning six bedroom home that extends to almost 6,000 sq ft.
Designed by the award winning local architect Tom Faire and completed in 2014, the house is, as you would expect, incredibly well thought out with the principal living and entertaining space situated on the upper level to take maximum advantage of the stunning views to the north whilst at the same time using its elevated position to allow natural light to flood in from the south. The upper floor centres around the hub of every family home, that being the kitchen and dining room. It is a Bulthaup kitchen so not only is it impeccably finished in every detail but it is also an incredibly practical space with two islands, one with the hob that allows the user to enjoy those views at the same time as cooking whilst the other overlooks the terrace and incorporates a breakfast bar allowing its user a more sociable aspect. There is ample space for a substantial dining table, and on the southern side the floor to ceiling doors open up onto the large south facing terrace. The reception room is equally elevated and is accessed via a staircase up from the kitchen dining room, and whilst the focus of the room is a very stylish cream and chrome log burning stove, because there are windows on three sides of the room, the eye is once again naturally drawn to those views.
All six bedrooms are generous suites with the principal bedroom arranged over two floors, the bedroom itself is upstairs with its own private terrace overlooking the coast as well as direct access out to the garden and garden gym. Its dressing room is downstairs and then leading off this is the sumptuous bathroom with a deep sunken bath, walk through double shower and a pair of wash hand basins. All of the other five bedroom suites are on the ground floor and each one features a solid wood panelled wall that almost gives the impression of being on a yacht. They also all have full floor to ceiling solid wooden doors that help accentuate the ceiling height and feeling of space. Finally, on the lower ground floor is the cinema and games room, with its surround sound and almost full width screen making it the perfect informal setting for relaxing.
Outside, as well as the upper terraces there is a beautifully designed south facing garden that features lawned, patioed and decked areas, as well as the separate gym room. To the front there is gated parking for several cars as well as a large garage.
As you might expect with such a contemporary house no expense has been spared, not only in its flawless finish but also in terms of its intelligence. With its living roof, solar panels and air source heating it is very much a house of the future but also it is a house that can be controlled remotely by the tap of a smart screen. Putting the blinds down and turning the heating up ready for your arrival on a winter's evening can all be done before you set off as well as having your mood set with your favourite music as you walk through the doors.
Without question Saltmarsh House is one of the most iconic properties ever to be created in North Norfolk.
