Tenure: Freehold

A sense of home, relaxation, individuality and style were all high on the design agenda, and now completed have exceeded all expectations.

Sitting well within lengthy landscaped gardens to both the front and rear, enjoying harbour views to the front and open countryside horizon to the south, the striking gently curved facade created with the use of materials synonymous with coastal villages in this area, chalk, flint, redbrick and wood. Lynwood House is an exceptional example of individually designed architecture fused with beautiful positioning so as enjoying superb harbour views, from within an impressive residence.

Arranged over four levels, and absorbing almost 4500 sq. ft. of accommodation, a clever combination of wall and floor finishes couple with high end appointments helps ensure the property becomes a tactile residence, whilst fully complimenting the contemporary style of interior which comfortably flows between large open plan spaces and enclosed rooms. The introduction of full height bi-fold doors not only allow for natural light to pour through, it helps harmonise the interior with the landscaped gardens, whilst a large balcony offers a super backdrop toward the North Sea horizon.

Much attention and thought has gone into the planning of the gardens which complement and reflects the design of this special home, whilst also fully helping appreciate the sea views, and absorb the property's elevated position. The rear gardens face directly South, ensuring a bright aspect which is fully appreciated within the property also, again demonstrating the architects desire to ensure the whole property becomes an enjoyable and useable space. 

BRANCASTER STAITHE Located approximately halfway between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk Coast, Brancaster Staithe is a small coastal village, centred around the harbour, with its thriving fishing community and ideal for the sailing enthusiast. Scolt Head Island is a Nature Conservation Area, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and being only a boat trip away, depending on the tide. The island has a large breeding colony of Sandwich Terns and in winter there can be 50,000 pink-footed geese roosting on the island. Brancaster Staithe is connected to Burnham Deepdale and between the two, they have a variety of shops including a supermarket/petrol station, cafe, fresh fish shop, sailing school, tourist information centre and two pubs, The Jolly Sailors, and The White Horse with its superb coastal views. Brancaster is justly famous for its mussels. There are many local walks around the village including Barrow Common with views over the coastline or the Norfolk Coastal Path, which runs the length of the village, along the marshes. 

ENTRANCE HALL 24' 3" x 6' 6" (7.40m x 2.00m) A smart solid Iroko entrance door opens into the entrance hall. The frameless glass panel to the side of the door allows light to fill the space and has pleasant views to the marshes and coastline beyond.

To one side of the room, the expertly laid exposed brick and flint wall adds a touch of traditional Norfolk, and connects inside with outside, whilst the stone flooring, open wooden staircase with glass banister along with LED mood lighting give a modern feel.
