Tenure: Leasehold

As its name suggests West End is situated in arguably the best position on the western end of this historic water mill conversion. Built in 1790 and then worked for the next 150 years, the building lay mostly dormant following the outbreak of WW2 and was almost destroyed by fire in the 1950s but fortunately the National Trust became its custodians and having first restored the damage they later converted it into residential units in the early 1990s. Interestingly it was West End that was used as the show home for the entire development and it is easy to see why. Arranged over three floors, the property is entered via its own private and secluded west facing garden and West End is the only property in the building to have a garden. Downstairs you enter into the cosy and delightful dining room with Norfolk pamment tiled floor and the original exposed oak beamed ceiling over with a separate galley kitchen next door. At the rear of the building is a double bedroom and separate family bathroom. On the first floor is a wonderful double height reception room with log burner and access out to the west facing balcony with delightful views over open pastureland towards Burnham Market. There are a further two double bedrooms, one with exceptional views down the River Burn towards Burnham Overy Town plus a second bathroom. On the third floor is a mezzanine level that overlooks the reception room as well as having the same views south down the River Burn. This upper floor is currently arranged as a television snug area but with its large double sofa bed it has often been used as sleeping overspill. West End has been run as an extremely successful holiday let that has consistently achieved almost 90% occupancy year on year. In all this is a perfect home from home and set in one of North Norfolk's iconic buildings.
 

BURNHAM OVERY STAITHE Burnham Overy Staithe is a small village on the North Norfolk Coast with a natural tidal harbour. It has a good gastro pub - The Hero. There are good walks across the marshes and long sandy beaches. It's close to Burnham Market with all of its amenities. Both Overy Town and Overy Staithe lie on the River Burn, and until the end of the Middle Ages trading ships were able to reach the village of Burnham Overy Town. Whenever a ship arrived a gong would be sounded at the top of Gong Lane in Burnham Overy Staithe. This alerted the farm workers to unload the incoming goods.
