Location

Highfield House is set within the unspoilt North Norfolk hamlet of Lower Bodham, surrounded by pretty and undulating countryside enjoyed by a network of footpaths and bridleways. The bustling Georgian town of Holt, only 2 miles away, is 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 away 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 house enjoys elegant and spacious living, with light and airy rooms over two floors. The entrance hall with striking bespoke ‘butterfly’ staircase leads to all main rooms in particular a sitting room with dual aspect and open fireplace, a dining room with French doors out to the gardens and a contemporary kitchen/breakfast room again with French doors out to the garden. Other useful rooms include a utility, study, music room and a large games room which would be suitable for a variety of uses.

The bedroom accommodation is positioned around a substantial landing with seating area, with six double bedrooms including a delightful master bedroom with en-suite shower room and dressing room, and two further bathrooms. All first floor rooms enjoy fine views across the gardens and countryside beyond.

OUTSIDE
Highfield House is approached from the west, over a gravelled in and out drive sweeping up to the house, with parking and turning area adjoining the house. The drive continues up to a further parking area and double garage.

The wonderful garden’s grounds were thoughtfully landscaped by a previous owner, setting out many points of interest and areas within the grounds, with the use of mature beech hedging, lawns, terrace, and woodland. The lawns surround the house, bordered with mature hedging and incorporating lavender and hydrangea beds, with a terrace perfect for outside dining. Paths wind up to a swimming pool, opening out to the south, and onwards through woodland to an opening with grass tennis court and children’s play area.

Paths continue through woodland with seating areas, a fire pit and a beech hedge maze leading to an enchanting quarry area, now a hidden valley bordered on either side by a spectacular array of shrubs. The grounds as a whole host an assortment of wonderful broadleaf trees and an established orchard.
