Take a look around Pippin House in Blakeney on the market for £895,000
PUBLISHED: 16:00 11 June 2017
Just a short stroll from the lively quay at Blakeney and the great expanses of tranquil marshland, which are known for their wildlife, Pippin House has been designed to offer indoor-outdoor living.
The attractive home, with its brick and flint exterior and exquisite internal finish, presents bright, airy accommodation which opens easily on to its garden space.
Currently on the market with Sowerbys at a guide price of £895,000, it is filled with natural light and has a fresh, contemporary feel, offering both coastal chic and high levels of comfort.
Arranged over two storeys, it comprises three bedrooms and generous living space, together with features such as underfloor heating and sumptuous bath and shower rooms.
From the front, Pippin House conjures up something of a barn style, with its wide entrance and abundance of glass.
Visitors step into the entrance hall, which has a decorative brick floor and where there is access to a cloakroom. They then immediately find themselves swept round into the main, open-plan living space.
Like the rest of the house, this has been decorated in neutral shades, featuring white and soft stone-grey hues to suit both the flint property and its coastal setting.
The enormous kitchen breakfast room, which has an oak floor, has been beautifully finished: it has been designed to offer a fabulous space for cooking, socialising, spending time with family and spilling out into the garden through two sets of French windows.
The kitchen itself was supplied by Neptune Interiors and, as well as its fitted base and wall units, has a central island with further fitted cupboards, with a breakfast bar and inset double Neptune.
Integrated appliances include a Siemens stainless-steel pyrolytic electric oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, full size dishwasher and four-ring, touch-control hob with a stainless steel and glass extractor.
The dining and relaxation area has a vaulted ceiling with two skylight windows – and there is ample space here for an eight-seat table.
The kitchen breakfast room leads through into the sitting room, which is equally impressive, with its cast-iron wood-burning stove, set in a fireplace with a heavy oak mantle, limestone hearth and herringbone brick detail.
Stairs from the entrance hall lead up to the first floor, where there is a magnificent galleried landing, with an oak balustrade; from here, there is access to the family bathroom and all three bedrooms.
The master suite has a semi-vaulted ceiling and en suite shower room, featuring a white contemporary three-piece.
The other two bedrooms share the family bathroom: bedroom two is especially large and features substantial built-in wardrobe space; bedroom two has a dual aspect, with skylight windows as well as windows to the side.
Pippin House is approached from the coast road via a private five-bar gate leading on to a shingle laid sweeping driveway, where there is parking for several cars.
The front garden has been professionally landscaped and has shaped lawns, as well as specimen trees, mature shrub and flower beds.
At the front of the house there is an area of terrace, which catches the sunshine, while to the rear there are additional places to relax, dine and entertain in the fresh air.
The garden is enclosed and features lawn, further beds and shrubs and a pretty pergola.
Pippin House is a home to be enjoyed in both summer and winter. It offers good access to Blakeney, Morston and all the other spectacular north Norfolk coastal locations. From here it is easy to reach stunning beaches, beautiful nature reserves and great country walks.
In addition to Blakeney itself, there are other villages and towns close by, with an array of shops, pubs and restaurants to hand.
Pippin House could therefore be ideal as a permanent home or a holiday property. It could be perfect for someone seeking a home which offers elements of the traditional and the contemporary, and a new owner who enjoys both indoor and outdoor living.
