Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Three tranquil bedrooms await, all of which are on the 1st floor and offer views of the countryside.
Bedroom one offers a super king bed, ample storage and views of the front and back gardens. The design of the room also has a continuation of the traditional chalk walls and a raised ceiling that gives the space an uncluttered feel. The room is also serviced by an en-suite shower room, WC and basin.
Bedroom two features a double bed, plenty of hanging space and storage, with views of the back garden and the pasture beyond.
Bedroom three has a king bed, ample storage and views of the front garden. In the corner, there is also a day bed that is really handy for reading the bedtime story on or for the occasional power nap. Please do note, this room has access to the owners private room, via a ladder, access to this is restricted.
Bedrooms two and three have the use of the master bathroom, found only a few feet away on the landing. It is here that a long soak in the bath can be looked forward too, a world away from work or the pressures of everyday life.
Lounge and Dining Room
As the hub of the house, the open plan lounge and dining room is a fabulously diverse space in which to entertain, dine or just relax. With a slightly raised ceiling and abundant natural light filling the room during the day, the comfort and pleasure that it offers cannot be overstated.
The lounge area features three large, double sofas, widescreen TV with Humax Freetime and Blu-ray player, several bookshelves of eclectically themed books and a writing table. The room also has a stunning feature wood burner. The main hub for the Sonos is also located by the TV.
The adjacent dining area has seating for eight and you are able to open up the nearby bi-fold doors that lead to the garden and outside seating. The generous windows also make breakfast here a true pleasure, you can often end up spending longer than you realise watching the local buzzards in the trees, just beyond the end of the garden, or the bees and butterflies enjoying the lavender.
This is a room in which the ethos of the owners is displayed at its most clear. By restoring and protecting the original chalk walls, they have been able to continue this theme and create a unique kitchen where you will lack for nothing. Aspiring chefs will enjoy the excellent range cooker with induction hob, the ample worktop space and integrated appliances. There is even a lovely little bistro table with bench seats to enjoy the view of the front garden from. Upon walking into this room, you know that you are in Norfolk!
Just down the hallway, you’ll also find a convenient utility room where you’ll find a washer/dryer and butler sink. The room also has a WC, hand basin and walk-in shower.
Leo is surrounded by garden and offers a safe, enclosed area where families are able to easily relax. By the front garden you have generous off-road parking for 3 cars. While this area is directly by a quiet B road, the area can be gated off and secured. The front garden also has a grassed area that sees the sun through the entire day in the Spring through to Autumn (weather permitting!).
As you move towards the back garden, you move past the interesting planting scheme that runs throughout. Here you will see shrub roses, aloe, grasses, rosemary, backed with beach and coniferous hedges.
The back garden offers a more open area where you’ll find outdoor furniture for dining and a large, enclosed lawn. For parents, the enclosed nature of the lawn will give cause for comfort. From the outdoor table and chairs, it is only a short walk before you reach the bi-fold doors that lead you back in the lounge. Unfortunately, Leo is not dog friendly.
Stanhoe is an attractive village that is only a five minute drive from the popular villages of Burnham Market, Brancaster, Holkham, Titchwell and Thornham. The busier towns of Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea are within 15 minutes, to the east and the west respectively. The village also has a great many walks that can be enjoyed in and around Stanhoe, with much of the village bordered by countryside and farmland. The Duck Inn is a favourite spot for local foodies and you need only pull on a pair of shoes to get there. Special mention goes to their excellent Sunday lunch!
Nearby, popular Burnham Market is set in the heart of the royal coast and the green at the centre of this stunning Georgian village is surrounded by 18th century houses, shops and chic boutiques. For dining you have several great options, these include the The Hoste, Socius, 20 North Street and Number 29. The green also offers an abundance of small village shops including a butcher, fresh fish shop, green grocers, wine merchant and deli you are spoilt for choice. All-weather tennis courts can be found an easy stroll away on the village playing field.
After a short drive and you’ll discover the sailing harbours at Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe and the beaches and Royal West Norfolk Golf Course at Brancaster. Historic Holkham with its wonderful white sandy beach and Wells-next-the-Sea with its beach huts are a short drive away too.
If you don’t want to stray too far, then enjoy an al fresco dining experience making full use of the BBQ or simply get lost in a good book in the sunny garden.
