The perfect North Norfolk retreat?

When the current owner of Meadow View acquired the property as a shell just over 10 years ago, he set out to create the perfect retreat in this idyllic location in the coastal village of Paston. Two years of painstaking construction work followed, and the result is a delightful six-bedroom home with 230m2 of character-filled accommodation across three floors, which maximises every aspect of its location and basks in unobstructed field views to the south.

We think he succeeded in his aim, because this multi-faceted home has something to offer at every turn – starting even before you enter the grounds.

Meadow View sits comfortably behind a brick-and-flint wall at the edge of the village, close to a designated network of Quiet Lanes, and with little passing traffic to disturb the sense of seclusion. Substantial electrically operated timber gates provide a feeling of privacy and security when closed, and a warm and inviting welcome as they swing open onto the gravel driveway which leads towards the property past an immaculate lawn and provides off-road parking for several vehicles. 

The house has been constructed in a traditional style, a pleasing combination of brick and flint which is common in this part of the county, and successfully incorporates many carefully considered details which combine heritage design with modern construction to create a home with broad appeal.

As you enter the property, the attention to detail becomes even more apparent, with beamed ceilings, solid oak ledge and brace doors and natural flooring adding to the considerable character of this home. 

Many of the walls feature exposed timbers and brickwork, with 10,000 individual bricks being hand cut and carefully placed to create a strikingly atmospheric interior. The materials for this home have been carefully sourced, with travertine, marble and slate used to good effect. 

The warm tones of natural timber play a large part in the interior design of this home, with engineered oak floors, oak beams and window sills and a French Oak staircase which gives access to the upper floors. 

Hand crafted bespoke timber cabinets create a classic country kitchen, with a vast dual-fuel range cooker taking pride of place beneath a substantial oak-beamed alcove in the sociable cooking and dining space on one side of the ground floor, and French doors lead from the kitchen to a sandstone patio at the rear of the property, which is the perfect place to sit and relax in the summertime and enjoy views of the countryside as far as the horizon. If you’d prefer to relax indoors, the spacious dual aspect living room is the ideal location, with the comforting heat from the 13kW wood burner perfectly complementing the underfloor heating on the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are five inviting bedrooms, each of which can accommodate a double bed if required. The master suite at the rear of the property has a well-appointed en-suite shower room, and there’s a family bathroom with freestanding bathtub and more wonderful views beyond, whilst on the second floor, the sixth bedroom benefits from an en-suite cloakroom.

Meadow View is an exceptional property in a sought-after location, and is ideally suited as a primary residence, a substantial second home, or as an investment property with significant holiday let potential subject to planning. 

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality and scope of the accommodation on offer, and is exclusively available  through Pendefords – the individual property specialists.

Paston – close to coast and countryside

The village of Paston is located less than a mile from the North Norfolk coast, approximately four miles north of the market town of North Walsham and nine miles south-east of the seaside town of Cromer.

A small rural village, it sits astride the coast road between Bacton and Mundesley – which offers local shops, a medical centre, library, post office, Infant and Junior schools, churches and three public houses, in addition to an easily accessible beach. Meadow View is located along a quiet lane on the southern edge of the village, with unobstructed views over fields towards the neighbouring village of Knapton.

High street shopping can be found inland in North Walsham, a bustling medieval market town which is home to a variety of independent and national shops, a range of supermarkets, high school and sixth form college, a fitness centre and cinema. North Walsham is served by a railway station which sits on the Bittern Line between Cromer and Sheringham on the coast, and the City of Norwich – with rail links from Norwich to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes.

Norwich offers a cosmopolitan array of amenities, with flagship national stores and two retail malls alongside independent shops and one of the oldest and largest permanent outdoor markets in the UK, plenty of entertainment on offer, and an international airport which provides opportunities for business and leisure travel.

Between Paston and Norwich, the Norfolk Broads National Park provides a wealth of marine-based leisure opportunities in a natural setting, and with a network of Quiet Lanes and footpaths directly accessible from the property, the wonderful Norfolk countryside is always within easy reach.
