5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Our client had been looking for a special place to build his own bespoke home on, so when he acquired a run-down property on the site of what is now The Duckeries, it gave him the ability to put his vision into life.
Working closely with Hebridean Homes and Dualchas Architects, the owner has created a truly bespoke home. The environment and energy efficiency was paramount and not only did they create something which is stunning to look at, but they designed a passive home making it an incredibly efficient property.
With air source heating, mechanical ventilation heat recovery and triple glazing, this house could not be more perfectly set up for today.
At the same time as thinking about design, our vendor went to great lengths to ensure the house had a luxurious finish throughout. Our client's background is landscape design and something which is wonderful is that the same attention to detail has been paid to the setting, as it had to the home's high standard. This house seamlessly sits within its environment.
The wrap-around south and west facing terrace is one of the owner's favourite places during the summer.
The principal living space mirrors this and you feel the day pass as the light moves around the space with you. In the winter, the light in the sitting room - cast by the low sun - is beautiful and makes this the owner's favourite place to relax. The living space and kitchen/dining room is divided by the feature double-sided bio-ethanol fireplace making it a perfect place for entertaining.
The space of the home is incredibly versatile and rooms can be easily adapted to suit a variety of requirements.
The Duckeries is perfectly situated in the countryside and the vendors have loved the nearby walks and pub lunches, but also the convenience for both Norwich and the North Norfolk coast.
The luxury continues beyond the main house where the vendor has created a spa with a Fastlane pool and a self-contained guest suite above.
When you walk around the property there is a feeling of serenity which gives the house such a wonderful calm feel and a peaceful lifestyle. Such is the attention to detail throughout, the owner has put lights in the ground outside to illuminate the trees and the features of the garden - highlighting the home's exterior.
When you have seen all The Duckeries has to offer, and the level of attention to the smallest of details - as well as the bigger picture, it is easy to see why this house is award winning. It is a triumph of what can be created if someone has a vision, but also an empathy for where their creativity will be placed.

In the 11th Century, Norwich was the second largest city in the country, and today is still the UK's most complete medieval city.
