We take a look at some of the best houses for sale in Norfolk right now.

Holt — £4,900,000

In the midst of the North Norfolk Blakeney salt marshes stands a truly breathtaking, modern home that takes coastal living to the extreme.

The property is built around a central courtyard and swimming pool, and is predominantly single-storey lateral space. The pre-weathered timber cladding and napped flint façade is a far cry from the 1950’s house which once stood in its place, and helps reflect and compliment the surrounding Norfolk coastal landscape.

In addition to the wonderful interiors (where you will find dark wooden floorboards, exposed beams and fireplaces in abundance) and private walled gardens, are 17 acres of romantic woodland and meadows.
