Waxham, Norfolk Coast
Holiday Beach House

If you are a fan of Grand Designs, modern architecture, innovative design and cool interiors then this amazing beach house on the Norfolk coast is the one for you.

Constructed in 2017/18, Shangri-La sprang to life from the footprint of what was a typical beach-side ‘shack’ and, under the keen eye of award-winning Mole Architects. This striking house wouldn’t look out of place on the Pacific coastline, but it looks just as fine nestled beside the sand dunes of wonderful Waxham beach.

Inside you’ll will find the latest technology and design features; fumed engineered oak flooring, washed plywood walls, wash (stage) lighting uplighters alongside eclectic modern light fittings.

Reclaimed beach hut ‘jigsaw’ feature walls add interest and a splash of colour, high vaulted ceilings create a feeling of space and light floods in from the expansive glazing on the south-facing elevation affording sublime long distance views across the coastal plain towards the Broads.

The main living accommodation is an open plan living space, comprising kitchen, dining and relaxing areas with sliding doors to the patio.

Two of the three generous-sized bedrooms have glazed doors onto the covered terrace, and there are two bathrooms, one of which one is en suite.

The icing on the cake? Open the windows and doors and you can hear the sea as waves roll onto the nearby beach.

Waxham is a small East Norfolk coastal hamlet sitting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is mainly known for Waxham Hall and Great Barn, a fully restored, magnificent Elizabethan barn.

The beach is often referred to as one of the UK’s best beaches, but still remains peaceful and quiet, even in high summer months.

A little way down the coast is Horsey, the main breeding area for colonised seals, but seals are also a very common sight at Waxham. If you swim off the beach or take out a kayak, the seals will surface to take a closer look.
