Stunning and contemporary coastal property.


The popular small coastal town and fishing resort of Wells-next-the-Sea is set behind a small harbour on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast, much of which is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wells-next-the-Sea was voted the second best seaside resort in Britain in 2006 by Holiday Which Magazine. The town has a maze of narrow streets, old alleys and yards, filled with shops, public houses and cafes. There are many listed and impressive Georgian and Victorian buildings. The town has an excellent range of services including a doctors’ surgery, library, primary and secondary schools, and a beautiful sandy beach with its pine trees, sand dunes and colourful beach huts. The beach can be reached by car or by using a miniature steam train from the harbour. The quay still has an active fishing fleet and sailing club. Both Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham Woods are designated Nature Reserves and walkers and bird watchers can enjoy the North Norfolk Coast paths, creaks and marshes.

The popular Georgian town of Holt, with an excellent range of independent shops and famous as the home of Gresham’s School, is about 9 miles. Burnham Market is about 6 miles, and Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is about 33 miles to the south.


A stunning contemporary house completed in 2009 in a secluded position in the centre of the popular coastal fishing resort of Wells-next-the-Sea.

The house is beautifully designed and constructed with extensive bespoke hardwood joinery and floors including American walnut, maple, oak and ash. There is also an oak staircase incorporating two thousand year old Fenland bog oak. Great attention has been paid to finish and detail, and the house benefits from light, bright and flexible accommodation arranged over three floors.

The Roundhouse is situated in a peaceful and secluded position right in the centre of Wells-next-the-Sea only moments from the quay. The house has its own parking and south facing garden with separate pedestrian access into the town.

The build has included extensive use of energy efficient building techniques and the latest heating technology of great thermal efficiency with a sophisticated central heating system, part underfloor, and supplemented by solar panels.

The Roundhouse is approached from the quayside through Croft Yard and into a communal gated parking area shared with four period properties. To the front of The Roundhouse is a private shingle area of hardstanding providing parking for three cars and leading onto the front covered terrace area. The front courtyard area is enclosed by substantial and attractive brick and flint walls. Double iron gates on the front terrace lead to a rear sunken terrace providing covered storage space. Indian sandstone steps lead up to the main rear garden, which lies to the south of the house. This provides a delightful sunny oasis within the centre of the town. It can be approached directly off the kitchen/dining room via a raised sun terrace with steps leading down to the garden. The garden is designed for easy maintenance with extensive pamment paved terraces, a central wooden pergola, and on each side are raised flowering and shrub beds featuring a variety of specimen plants and flowers and a selection of young fruit trees. Indian sandstone steps lead up to a private rear pedestrian gate giving access to Shop Lane.
