Woodland Pytchley sits in an acre of private woodland garden, and has belonged to the same family for nearly a hundred years. Situated in a hillside residential area at the top of West Runton village, you will find this lovely property quietly tucked away at the end of a private road bordered by the Roman Camp National Trust woodland. Over the last year Woodland Pytchley has undergone a completion transformation - in the same footprint of what had become a rather tired bungalow, there now stands proud a stunning, brick and flint, award-winning (Craftmanship Award, Norfolk Association of Architects) detached house.
Once inside you will appreciate the craftmanship - a lovely, smooth curved wall in the entrance hall, a spacious open plan, light filled living and dining space with glass doors opening into the garden, an impressive double height sitting area with a fabulous feature floor to ceiling 'Cathedral' window, and a beautifully designed open oak staircase leading to the first floor galleried seating area above.
There is a great choice of sleeping accommodation which will suit families, couples and friends. There are three large double bedrooms: one is downstairs (a king-size room, with an en suite shower room, and views of the garden), and two upstairs (a twin room with distant views of the sea, and a super-king/twin room which overlooks the woodland garden). It also features a large family bathroom on the first floor, with both bath and walk-in shower, and a cloakroom downstairs.
The house is fitted throughout to a high specification, has efficient air source heat pump central heating - underfloor downstairs, radiators upstairs - beautiful tiled floors, wood-panelled latch doors, a well-equipped contemporary kitchen, useful separate utility/boot room, and walk-in showers with rainfall shower heads. A widescreen wall-mounted smart TV with Netflix will make sure you don't miss the latest episode of your favourite series, and there is a wireless speaker so you can fill the space with music of your choice.
In the spring and summer months you can relax in the beautiful woodland garden, with its patio area and curved sloping lawn. Go through the gate at the top of the garden and you can explore the trails in the National Trust woodland, and adjoining Fair Lady Wood. In the winter, light the log burner, and relax after a bracing walk on West Runton beach. It's an easy fifteen minute walk down to the village, where you will find shops, tea rooms, and the Coasthopper bus stop. From here it's just a short walk to the beach.
This really is a very special holiday property, and will appeal to discerning holidaymakers who appreciate quality and style, want to enjoy a private and peaceful location, as well as easy access to local beaches, wonderful coastal and rural walks, and a comfortable base from which to explore this lovely area of North Norfolk.
