Perfectly located less than a mile from the beautiful beaches of the Norfolk Coast, The Parish Rooms is a fabulous new property which combines contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship. With four double bedrooms and two en-suites, an incredible open-plan living area and far-reaching open views front and rear, this stunning home would make a superb family residence, holiday home or investment property.
Located on a quiet lane in the North Norfolk village of Paston, The Parish Rooms has been recently completed by award-winning local company Colin Read & Sons, and is available for immediate occupation. Set back from the road with a generous gravel driveway offering parking for several vehicles, the attention to detail in this home is apparent before you even open the front door.
Warm antique brickwork is topped by Western Red Cedar cladding, and soft grey windows with uniform sightlines hint at the character and quality within. Solar panels are concealed by the dark grey pantile roof, just one example of this property’s consideration for the surrounding environment. Bounded by close-board wooden fencing to both sides, substantial wooden gates provide access and privacy for the rear garden beyond.
Entering through the part-glazed front door, the immediate feeling is one of light and space. This property has been decorated in neutral tones throughout, allowing the natural warmth of the oak flooring and doors to shine through. Underfloor heating runs throughout the ground floor, assuring a warm welcome to this coastal home whatever the weather.
To the front of the property is a generous study, which could also be used as a fifth bedroom. The distinctive corner window in this room grants views towards the open fields in front of this property, and the space is large enough to fit two desks if required. The ground floor cloakroom and utility room nearby are finished to a high standard, including fitted cabinetry with quartz worktops.
The majority of the ground floor is given over to the incredible open-plan living area, a truly sociable space incorporating a well-equipped kitchen, a generous dining area, and a spacious lounge area – all of which benefit from stunning views towards the Norfolk coast thanks to the glazed rear wall, with bifold doors and French doors opening out to the landscaped rear gardens.
The bespoke kitchen has been crafted to compliment this home perfectly. The cabinetry incorporates fine details such as dovetail joints to drawers, clever sliding storage to maximise the available space, twin integrated fridge freezers to cater for the largest of households, and a double range cooker with induction hob to make cooking a joy. The beautiful blue of the cabinets reinforces this home’s links to the coast, and is complimented perfectly by the shimmering quartz worktops, which extend into a sociable breakfast bar with seating for four people – the perfect place to enjoy a light bite, or to share a drink and conversation with the cook.
In the lounge area, a freestanding DRU gas fire brings additional warmth in the coldest of months. This part of the room offers real flexibility of layout – large enough to accommodate several comfy sofas, or to create more informal seating zones. The ceiling is slightly lower in part of this room, just enough to provide a feeling of intimacy and to improve the acoustics for movie night without compromising the openness of the space. Towards the rear of the room, the ceiling is vaulted, with Velux windows on three sides and dual aspect views letting in plenty of natural light and making the perfect location for a relaxing chair and a good book.
It would have to be a real page-turner though, to stop your gaze from wandering out to the back garden and the open views beyond. This is a beautiful scene, with big Norfolk skies and Stow Mill on the horizon, and in the summer, this is where you’ll spend most of your time, with an expansive patio at the rear of the property and steps leading to the lawned rear garden with open fields beyond. And while this garden is a great place for relaxation, it’s also a great place to work, with a bespoke home office at the end of the lawn. Fully insulated, and with light, power and heating, this is a great space to focus the mind close to nature.
The first floor of this home is as bright and light as the ground floor. The galleried landing benefits from three Velux windows in the roof, admitting plenty of natural light, and providing access to the four double bedrooms and family bathroom.
Each of the generous bedrooms has been designed to maximise the view, with large windows overlooking fields to the front and rear. Built-in wardrobes offer plenty of storage, and the two bedrooms to the rear of the property have en-suite shower rooms which, along with the family bathroom, repeat the material pallete found on the ground floor. Buyers have the opportunity to select from a range of floor coverings for the first floor, enabling personalisation of this space.
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. The Parish Rooms is located along a quiet lane on the north side of the village, with unobstructed views towards the coast.
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.
