A delightful Victorian station master's house, transformed into a stylish and secluded retreat filled with mid century charm, tucked away in rural Norfolk
Station House is listed in affiliation with our friends at Norfolk Hideaways.
This former Victorian station master's house, has been fully transformed in to a fabulous woodland retreat in the heart of the stunning Norfolk countryside. Close to pretty seaside towns and villages, this period house is full of charm and grandeur, in a unique and secluded position
Originally constructed by the railway company Midland & Great Northern in the 1880s, the house was designed to be home to the Station Master for Raynham Park. Its new owners have since given the house a new lease of life as a romantic hideaway ready for you and yours to enjoy. Thoughtfully restored to retain its gorgeous period character and charm, it now offers a heady mix of the old and the luxuriously new.
The eclectic styling of the cottage has turned it into a comfortable, easily enjoyable, undemanding sort of a place, that is just right for friends or families looking to escape from the riggers of day to day living. Think comfortable furnishings, mid century styling and a feeling of laid back luxury that is so good you may never want to leave.
The current owners have created an interior that would fit nicely on the pages of any design magazine. Chock full of Scandinavian chairs, up cycled lighting and retro finds and decor, the house is now a world away from its functional beginnings.
The sitting room offers sublime comfort with an open fire and soft, sumptuous sofas. With a bright bay window, industrial lighting, and an open fire with an old stone hearth you can’t help but feel comfortable during your time in here.
The dining room with its pea green feature wall and antique leather love seat is a perfect space to enjoy a homemade meal in style. The heavy wooden table will seat you all comfortably and the fire will keep you warm on cooler days.
The kitchen is a delight to behold with traditional wooden cabinets, topped with solid wood work surfaces, a butler's sink and all of the modern conveniences you could wish for including a dishwasher, cooker, fridge freezer and microwave. The exposed wood floor and high ceiling in the kitchen add even more charm to this already uber cool kitchen.
In fact, Station House offers plenty of period features throughout including high ceilings, deep skirting boards, open fireplaces, tiled floors, exposed floorboards and beams, all of which are enhanced by modern benefits like oil-fired central heating and UPVC framed windows.
There are two bedrooms on the first floor as well as two bathrooms. The master bedroom is big and beautiful with a finely dressed bed, charming vintage furniture and an antique fireplace, we can wager that you will have no problems getting a goods night sleep here. There is also a super surprise to be discovered, as a unique and rather quirky “bath” cupboard is also included for you own private ablutions.
The second bedroom has two solid single beds, more beautiful vintage furniture and its very own feature fireplace. The main bathroom is, as you would expect by now, simply stunning and benefits from a modern shower cubicle for your convenience, as well as a victorian style hand basin and water closet.
Outside there are delightful gardens which run to three sides of the house and are really quite magical.
Helhoughton is a small village surrounded by beautiful countryside, just south west of the market town of Fakenham, and about twenty minutes from the coastal resort of Wells-next-the-Sea. It is a great base for exploring this beautiful area of North Norfolk which is just perfect for walking and cycling, as well as visiting a host of local visitor attractions. Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, Sculthorpe Hawk and Owl Trust and The Thursford Collection are all within easy reach of the Station House, as is a day at the nearby Fakenham Races.
