Salt Marsh House
BURNHAM MARKET • Sleeps 12 • Dogs welcome
Situated on the edge of Burnham Market, Salt Marsh House is a unique combination of superb luxury, unparalleled location and modern, award-winning design. Morning, noon or night, this property gives its guests the most stunning vista views of the North Norfolk coastline, a very rare treat! Featuring six en suite bedrooms, pool table, cinema room, gymnasium, hot tub and several balconies, Salt Marsh House resides in a very select group of premier Norfolk homes.
Salt Marsh House is the ultimate fusion of location and luxury, featuring floor to ceiling glass walls, there can be very few other places in Norfolk that are on a par with this amazing property. Providing stunning views of the coastline, this sanctuary of calm feels completely at one with its rugged surroundings, yet it remains apart and protected from the elements.
Situated on the very edge of Burnham Market, the views could almost fool you into thinking that you were in the middle of the countryside, while in actual fact you are never more than a five minute walk from the popular green at the centre of Burnham Market. Furthermore, three fantastic restaurants, a fishmongers, butcher, two delis and general stores are all found around the green, a wonderfully convenient location!
Warmer months allow the many balcony doors to be opened up, beckoning in the spring and summer air into the living spaces of the house. Dining on the veranda is a must when you’re in such a special spot and the kitchen (and the wine fridge) is never too far away.
As autumn moves into winter, yet more opportunities arise in this most special of places. As the sun rises in the morning, overhead you are treated to skeins of Pink Footed and Barnacle Geese moving from their overnight saltmarsh roosts to the bountiful sugar beet fields of the nearby farmland. There can be no better start to the day than to witness the sight and sounds of thousands of geese overhead. A scene that is repeated in reverse as dusk closes in and they head back to the protection of the marshes, all set against the burning pink and orange skies that Norfolk is famed for.
Come rain or shine, the large, private hot tub in the garden provides guests with a warm place to retreat or, for the more energetic, the enclosed gymnasium allows guests to work off the results of any over-indulgence from the night before.
Further excitement can be found in the cinema room on the ground floor. This room provides modern entertainment systems and large projector screen. The room also features a pool table.
For those looking to entertain guests, the fantastically appointed central kitchen and dining area is ideal for hiring a private chef, while you enjoy the company of your friends surrounded by the impressive backdrop provided by the floor to ceiling glass walls. Truly stunning!
The property does allow dogs but guests are asked to respect the owners wishes and only allow them into the entrance hall, kitchen/dining space and the utility room. Dogs are never allowed downstairs into the carpeted areas or the bedrooms. Security deposit will be withheld to cover professional carpet cleaning if this is transgressed.
