The Details...

Approached from a private road and set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a tranquil bend in the River Ant to the front (a tributary of The Broads), and surrounded by stunning water meadows, it beautifully marries brilliant contemporary design with traditional Norfolk architecture. Inside it is both exciting and comfortable, and designed to let as much of the outside 'in' as possible, with huge windows and galleried landings giving a feeling of space and light. Comfortable furnishings and well thought out living areas make the house both welcoming and practical.

Hunsett Mill has a very contemporary kitchen with a central breakfast bar and wall of windows looking out to the windmill. There is a full height fridge, integrated grill & fan assisted oven with shoulder level integrated microwave, induction hob & extractor, sink and integral dishwasher with grey marble work surfaces and plenty of cupboard space.

Surrounded by wood and glass the living area works beautifully. There is a central fireplace with glass on either side to provide cosy warmth in the winter, which also serves as a divide between the sitting and dining areas. There is a large flatscreen television with satellite Freeview and DVD player along with lots of books and games to choose from. The dining area has a large dining table with seating for eight.

For some added privacy you can pop into the snug. Moving in to what was the original cottage the snug has a two seater sofa and television with DVD player. The original Norfolk Winder staircase leads upstairs from this room to a single bedroom situated above.

There are extensive gardens all around the property with a lovely garden to the river frontage, a boardwalk down to the bend in the river and a path around the property passed the water meadow to the side and rear. Garden furniture is located outside the kitchen door and a further table and chairs at the end of the board walk. Approached from a completely private road there is ample parking for several cars in a gravelled area to the rear of the property.

The renovation and extension of this mill keeper's cottage was shortlisted for the "Structural Awards 2009" as one of the projects with the most innovative structure in the category "Residential Structures " by the Institution of Structural Engineers. Hunsett Mill's sustainability was shortlisted for the "Making Sustainable Development Happen" award in 2009, as one of the five most sustainable projects with a budget under £2m by the UK Green Building Council and Building Magazine. Most impressive of all, in 2010 Hunsett Mill won the RIBA Manser Medal for Best New House.

This property is in a particularly beautiful part of Norfolk. Just 10 minutes from the lovely beach at Sea Palling and only 15 minutes from Wroxham, the property itself sits on a beautiful bend of the River Ant, a tributary of The Broads and is surrounded by water meadow with it's own restored windmill and boat house.
Add to this a building of remarkable architectural significance and you have a self-catering experience that will be difficult to beat. We think we can be forgiven for going a little 'off piste' with this one!
