Situated on the idyllic North Norfolk Coast, this former police house has now been converted into two beautiful, semi-detached coastal homes.
Neighbouring properties and local architecture played a crucial role in the design and style of these homes as Mike East of RM Smith Builders explains “it was imperative for us that these new properties fit in locally. A combination of Chalkstone and brick is synonymous with other houses in the village and gives it that seaside look that we were aiming to achieve”.
Due to the sea view these homes proudly boast, both are laid out in an unconventional manner, with bedrooms on the ground floor, the kitchen and living area on the first floor, and the master bedroom on the top floor, allowing for the larger rooms in the house to take full advantage of the beautiful location.
RM Smith Builders are renowned across the North Norfolk coast for their work, and high specification finishes of the highest standards. Both properties feature charming hand-made kitchens, wine coolers, and private balconies overlooking the beautiful gardens, ideal for entertaining and the summer season.
The North Norfolk coast is so highly sought after by buyers, that holiday homeowners have purchased both properties before works were fully complete. Mike comments “One man turned up on the first day it was open for viewings, and before he even went inside, said ‘yes, I’ll take it!’. Homes in areas like this have always been popular as second and holiday homes, but even we were surprised he didn’t even need to look inside.”
“We have been so impressed with the Dale products, and I personally am going to order them for my own home now!” Mike exclaims.
Flush casement windows
Taking inspiration from neighbouring homes, timber flush casement windows, including a mixture of fixed and floating mullions were specified in the shade of ‘Olive Grey’, with horizontal 18mm astragal glazing bars.
Opting for a timeless look, our Orford style doors in the same finish as the new windows have been installed underneath a beautiful canopy, creating a truly lovely entrance to these homes.
At the rear, both properties boast a private balcony opening out from the living room, where our bi-fold doors stack neatly, to create the perfect, flexible living solution. A second set are also installed on the ground floor to allow for easy access into the garden.
