Hunsett Mill - Self-catering house in Norfolk
Chapel Field, Stalham, Norwich, Norfolk
England, United Kingdom
By a windmill, on a bend in the river in the Norfolk Broads, is a hugely appealing mill keeper's cottage with a gorgeous, sustainable extension – winner of the RIBA Manser medal for best new house in the UK, 2010 and described as 'more akin to a piece of art than a piece of rural, domestic architecture'. The ground floor has a high vaulted ceiling and is open plan and light-filled with great river views and defined areas for sitting, cooking and eating; the kitchen and utility room have absolutely everything you could wish for. There's a two-way open fireplace and an impressive suspended stairway leading to simply stylish bedrooms above, with pale colours, big limestone-tiled bathrooms and, again, great views. A steep winding stair leads to two rooms in the original part of the cottage, their beams painted white. It's all been thought through: logs laid on, space for wellies and for drying stuff, your can star gaze, sit out in the sun, watch the wildlife from inside or out. An irresistible weathered boardwalk bears you over the marsh: be in Norwich in half an hour, on the beach in quarter. And you've your own mooring.
