The Coach House ~ Norfolk - The English Countryside


The Coach House in the heart of the Norfolk countryside
was originally part of a stud farm. It has been renovated
with the original features of the building with all of the
modern comforts (they even have underfloor heating.)
I love the way they decorated the French room above.

This house for rent has been featured in the British magazine
"25 Beautiful Homes."


Here we have the brick facade of the home. I wonder
how many days of the year do they have sunny weather
with a bright blue sky like that? There is the term an
"English Summer" for a reason after all.


The common living area has a wonderful fireplace
and still retains the original beams in the ceiling.



I was really tickled to see this room. It's almost as if they
could have lifted this room from out of China. You can tell
the bedframe is an original frame. Chinese bedrames are
always massive and this one is no different. I always love
sleeping in them though because they provide such a cozy
feeling.


A particularly relaxing and airy room.


This room would be great for the kids.


A long enough dining table to seat 14 comfortably!


A smaller dining area for breakfast perhaps next to the kitchen.


And we end with the very charming and up to date kitchen.

I don't know about you but I certainly wouldn't mind spending
some time in the English Countryside at this particular house.
