Private village house with impressive outbuildings and annexe.

Location

The Malthouse is set within the unspoilt North Norfolk village of West Beckham, complete with the popular public house 'The Wheatsheaf'. The village is a short drive to Holt (3½ miles), the bustling Georgian town famous for its boutique shopping including Bakers & Larners, Byfords delicatessen and many independent retailers alongside art galleries, antiques shops, jewellers, restaurants and cafes. The renowned Gresham's Preparatory and senior schools are on the edge of the town, with further preparatory education at Beeston Hall School near Sheringham.

The North Norfolk Coast, designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can be found approximately 3 miles in Weybourne, an attractive coastal village with public house, hotel and general stores and direct access to the shingle beach. The coastline at various points provides excellent sailing and bird watching, with a network of footpaths to enjoy.

Description

The Malthouse is a most attractive Grade II listed village house, formerly the malt house of Morgans Brewery and dating back to 1685. The property has been the subject of a thorough and sympathetic programme of refurbishment, including the construction of a substantial barn attached to the original outbuildings.

The main house, constructed of brick and flint including knapped flint, and a pantile roof enjoys a west facing position set within an entirely enclosed garden, mostly walled, creating a private setting yet within the village. The current owner has made many improvements to the house, including replacement of all windows, complete redecoration and re-modelling of some rooms, additional insulation where required and extending to create a dining room/orangery with triple aspect. The main rooms are all well proportioned with good ceiling height, in particular the drawing room and sitting room, both with larges fireplaces hosting wood burners. There is a functional kitchen with Aga, leading to a utility/larder and to a study. An impressive oak staircase leads to a central landing and off to two spacious double bedrooms, both with en-suite bath/shower rooms and feature fireplaces. Ladder stairs lead up to the large attic space, suitable for conversion to further bedroom accommodation if required.

All works to the house have been sympathetically completed with care to retain or reinstate period detail including pamment floors, shutters and fireplaces.

Outbuildings & Annexe
Detached from the main house is a range of former outbuildings, which have also been the subject of considerable improvements including the addition of a substantial extension.

Part of the outbuildings has been converted to a charming annexe, comprising an open plan living area with kitchen, bedroom and a large bathroom. This is useful for guests or could be used as a holiday let to provide an income. The extension created a barn of 29'11" by 17' with mezzanine floor. With solid flooring and insulation, this large building would be suitable for a variety of uses, and is complete with large windows and Velux in the roof providing plenty of natural light.

This building includes a double garage, with a further store room and workshop.

Outside
The Malthouse is approached from the west onto a gravelled drive, through electrically operated wooden gates set on brick pillars between a brick and flint wall. The drive continues through to a large parking and turning area adjoining the house and outbuildings.

The gardens and grounds have been well maintained and improved by the current owner, and landscaped to utilise all areas of the property with many points of interest. A paved path leads up to the house, with a delightful area of lawn and herbaceous flowerbeds enclosed by low brick and flint wall. The path continues round to either side of the house, leading to a large courtyard to the north, and an enclosed area to the south with traditional outbuilding forming a loggia. There is an area of lawn to the rear of the house, with a large terrace, perfect for outside dining. A further area of lawn is to the southwest and west of the house with flowerbeds, mature trees and shrubs, and composting area behind wicker fencing. The property as a whole is completely enclosed by either brick and flint wall or fencing, making for a private and sheltered setting.

Services
Main water, electricity and drainage, LPG fired Aga and wood burners.
