Seastiles is a completely bespoke, one-off, new build home, from the award winning design team that previously claimed the winning prize in Channel 5's "I own Britain's Best Home" programme. This new project is located in a quiet spot in the popular village of Salthouse. It is an upside-down house, designed to make the very best of the beautiful views from the rear of the house over the fields to the sea.
The house is flooded in light, with airy accommodation and beautiful clean lines throughout. The clever design means that Seastiles has that ‘tardis’ feel of being much larger on the inside. It boasts open plan living on the first floor; fluidly combining the kitchen, sitting room and dining area to create the perfect living space; with the eye constantly drawn to the stunning view over the landscaped garden and fields to the calming seascape beyond.
There is a dramatic staircase leading to the ground floor with three double bedrooms below; the master and rear double bedroom both have en suite shower rooms and direct access to the garden via glass doors, and the final double bedroom and family bathroom is to the front. General access to the charming decked area and the garden to the rear is via a glass door in the downstairs corridor.
To the front of the house is a wide gravelled parking area for two or three vehicles.
The main garden is found to the rear of the house, there is a raised deck immediately outside with a landscaped garden comprising lawn, stocked borders and planted gravel garden area. Surrounded by hedges and planting the rear garden is private and tranquil.

Should the new owners of Seastiles wish to investigate the option of their Norfolk retreat generating a second income, they may be pleasantly surprised. Local agents, Norfolk Hideaways, have indicated that Seastiles would command a peak week rental of in excess of £1,800.
After visiting the house, Hideaways commented; “And wow what a property it is! Absolutely stunning inside and with fabulous sea views, it’s in a great location. It will do exceptionally well as a holiday let, attracting a good number of rentals throughout the year including short breaks.” They indicated they would expect occupancy to increase over time.
Local agents, like Norfolk Hideaways, are able to provide fully managed services, including provision of housekeeping and maintenance; which means that there is no requirement for owners to be on site to look after guest expectations.
Seastiles is situated in a quiet cul de sac, off a quiet country lane in the extremely sought after village of Salthouse. The property is positioned amongst other houses used in the main as second homes, holiday cottages but with some full time residents too. Its position means that there is little or no noise pollution from traffic noise, yet Seastiles is still close enough to walk down to the village green and on to the beach.
Salthouse is a charming village just a few minutes drive from Blakeney Harbour, Cley Bird Reserve and the historic Georgian market town of Holt. From the village green there are fantastic walks down to the beach, along the coastal paths and up the hill to Kelling heath with breathtaking views of the coast. The village has a great village store which serves coffee and treats alongside local produce, home essentials and coastal gifts. Next door to the village store is the famous Cookies Crab Shop, a proper coastal institution and home to some fabulous sea food, alongside the crabs and salads to eat on the premises. Opposite, on the green, is the very well regarded Dun Cow pub which has a lovely open fire in the cosy bar during the colder months and a large garden overlooking the saltmarsh view for the summer; it's always busy with locals and visitors alike.
