4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

The perfect coastal lifestyle with ornate brick and flint elevations concealing a stylish interior, sumptuous accommodation and a wonderful guest cottage/annexe. All of this is set in beautifully maintained gardens and within walking distance of the beach, village pub/restaurant and village store.

Orchard House is a handsome, brick and flint detached residence nestled discreetly on the coast road at West Runton and perfectly placed to embrace beach and coastal life.

Built originally in 1996, to an individual design, this fine home boasts modern construction build quality and arguably excellent energy efficiency - yet its striking design and intricate brick and flint elevations pay homage to the area's heritage style and architectural vernacular.

During their ownership, the present owners have extensively remodelled and renovated the house to an exquisite standard throughout and create a wonderful guest cottage/annexe within the gardens. A high degree of interior flair and design has helped create a distinguished and fascinating home.

Together, with the guest cottage, the accommodation extends to more than 2,000 sq. ft. and is both highly versatile and ready to enjoy.

Tucked away, just off the coast road in an enviable and highly sought-after residential turning, the house is approached from the rear where a block paved hard standing driveway provides ample off-street parking option and access to both the main house and the guest cottage.

A personal gate at the rear and pathway lead to a side entrance and hall, off the hall is a guest WC. The kitchen/dining area features a range of free-standing bespoke cabinets, a central island and double 'butler-style' sink unit. Exposed and white-washed beams to the ceiling, mellow red brick walls, clay tile floors and a floor-standing wood burner create a charming space with a distinct country house feel. Off the kitchen, a beautiful garden room extends out into the gardens and directly onto a south-facing terrace.

The dining area of the kitchen features double french doors onto the terrace but also seamlessly links through to the formal lounge to create an open plan feel and an impressive amount of space for entertaining. The lounge is bursting with charm and features such as clay tiled floors, a wood burner set into a handsome fireplace with brick surround and an oak mantle.

A central hall provides access to a boot room area the guest WC, a charming snug/television room and the staircase to the first floor.

The first floor features a delightful galleried landing giving access to the four double bedrooms. The principal bedroom features fitted wardrobes and a luxurious en-suite. A spacious and well-appointed family bathroom serves the three double bedrooms.

The refined quality of this impressive home continues on the outside with beautifully landscaped gardens which are perfect for entertaining and enjoy a high degree of privacy. To the front of the house neatly shaped lawns are flanked by attractive flint walls and peppered with specimen trees and colourful borders.

The rear garden enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is beautifully established. Paved sun terraces sit under an attractive wooden pergola with a variety of mature shrubs, leading out to shaped lawns.

On the west elevation of the house is a garden store, currently used as an outside bar and a gym. A pathway through the garden leads to the guest cottage/annexe.

The annexe has been skilfully crafted from a detached double garage which features brick and flint walls, set under a pantile roof to mimic the main house.

Spanning around 367sq. ft. the annexe provides an open plan living space which incorporates a kitchen area, lounge/dining space and an innovative mezzanine/bedroom area.

Below the mezzanine a shower room ensures that the annexe is completely independent and provides versatility for a variety of functions. This amazing space can only be fully appreciated on a viewing.

Orchard House commands an enviable position just off the coast road at West Runton with the beach just a short stroll away.

WEST RUNTON Nestled between the Victorian seaside resorts of Cromer and Sheringham, West Runton has good road connections and a small railway station with regular services to Norwich. West Runton also has a pub - The Village Inn, restaurants, a post office, an independent school and village store. It also has a golf links course and there are nearby National Trust woodland walks. The village is famous for the West Runton Woolly Mammoth, a huge 6-700,000 year old fossilised elephant, discovered in the 1990s. West Runton is also home to the Hilltop Shirehorse Centre.

With an elegant pier, Pavilion Theatre and grand Victorian villas, many with panoramic views over the pebble and sand beach, it's easy to see why Cromer has perennial appeal to staycationers and permanent residents alike. Banksy recently visited the town on a headline-making 'spraycation' which focused the media's attention on the east side of the Norfolk coast. Spend a morning exploring the pretty boutiques and follow the lanes towards the seafront to pick up a Cromer crab - widely regarded as one of the best found in English waters, the eight-legged crustacean still provides a major source of income for the town's fishermen and simply served with bread makes an unbeatable lunch or supper!

Or push the boat out with fish and chips from No 1 Cromer, Galton Blackiston's award winning Cromer eatery perched on the clifftop. Treat yourself to a relaxing lunch at the Upstairs Restaurant where stunning sea views meet tasty seafood, or join the queue downstairs and enjoy your takeaway sitting on the wall as the seagulls soar above you for a fully immersive 'beside the seaside' experience. Follow the slope down from the clifftop to the beach and walk the shoreline or practise your hand at an afternoon skimming stones out to the horizon line.
