4 Bedroom Detached House Sold STC
The Farmhouse was the show home for the prestigious St Georges Court development exhibiting en-during quality of Bullen Developments. It is aptly named, having all the external appearance and aesthetics of a grand Georgian farmhouse. However, because it is new (completed in 2007), the internal design is naturally both practical and flexibly arranged.
On entering The Farmhouse you are immediately drawn towards the natural hub of every farmhouse, the kitchen/breakfast room. With its central island and breakfast bar this is an incredibly sociable room but also, with the double doors opening up to the dining room as well as the door through to the utility room and pantry, it is an exceptionally convenient living space. There are three further entertaining rooms; a formal drawing room, a more relaxed snug and then at the back of the house is, without question, the most breath taking room of the house, the absolutely stunning and grand orangery.
Upstairs is perfectly arranged for family living, with all four bedrooms leading off the large landing. Two of the double bedrooms share a family bathroom, whilst the other two have en-suites. The principal bedroom suite is very generous indeed, occupying almost a third of this floor.
To the front of the house, and in addition to the gravelled parking area, there is a large double garage, ideal for boat storage, whilst to the rear is a large and private garden. This garden has been designed and arranged to provide simplicity and privacy, but also to maximise our sunshine when we have it. There are french doors out to the garden from the dining room, the drawing room and the orangery and these all interlink with the patio area, which covers the immediate rear of the house so the ground floor flows perfectly for alfresco entertaining. What is particularly lovely about this garden is the way in which it has matured and allowed The Farmhouse to really settle into its surroundings.
St George's Court is a gated development that is perfectly positioned to enjoy all the amenities that this famous coastal village has to offer. All three pubs are within easy walking distance, as is the deli and the beach, yet at the same time this is an incredibly peaceful and private setting.
THORNHAM Thornham may just be the quintessential Norfolk coastal bolthole. With plenty of brick and flint cottages and larger period homes just a short walk from the water's edge and nature reserve, dig a little deeper and you'll also discover it is a fantastic foodie hotspot with a clutch of award winning pubs and eateries, along with a boutique retail park. Once a largely forgotten village on the run between Hunstanton and Burnham Market, over the past decade Thornham has evolved into a chic stop.
Historically a centre of trade and seafaring, the village was used by the Romans and saw fierce conflict between smugglers over the centuries until the harbour silted up in the early 20th century. Many of the traditional fishermen's cottages have been gentrified with a soft palette and contemporary coastal style and life now moves at a calmer pace.
Start the day with a slow brunch at Thornham Deli before picking up some nibbles at the food counter or browsing its quirky lifestyle store. Then, continue your retail therapy a little further along the coast road at Drove Orchards, which seems to have something fresh each season. Or take it easy and fill your basket at the Farm Shop - with a small meat counter, deli, bakery and pantry selection, plus a satellite of Gurneys Fish Shop next door, dinner's sorted.
Drove Orchards is also home to the original, award winning Eric's Fish & Chips and Eric's Pizza, located in a neighbouring Yurt, where traditional dishes have been given a contemporary spin. But if you are looking for good pub grub, head to The Lifeboat, The Chequers Inn or The Orange Tree pubs - all located within this small but prominent village. While some stumble upon Thornham by accident while touring the coastline, there are many who have decided to make it a place to call home.
