Imagine getting home from a busy day at work, kicking off your heels and putting on your wellies, grabbing the dog lead and the dog to head out through your garden to the countryside beyond for a walk to clear the head and rid yourself of the stresses of the day.

After a sneaky gin and tonic on your private terrace, you pick some apples from your own orchard to make that crumble dessert before settling down in the evening to watch the stars come out over the expansive north Norfolk sky.

You might spot a barn owl and then wake up the next morning and listen to the birds before, on a Friday morning, you stroll down to Blakeney quay to get your wonderful EDP property supplement.

This is very much what you can enjoy at Long Acres which is a pretty brick and flint house built in the 1990s in the most special spot on the edge of fields and with a covenant in place which prevents further building on the land.

The covenant prevents anyone building on the two acres of land which comes with the property, preserving its uniqueness - and gorgeous setting - for the future.

This house is really tucked away in Blakeney and you can walk down to the quay.

But when you are at home with the front door closed and with all that peaceful garden leading into woodland bordered by countryside, you really do feel extremely private and away from the fast pace of life and its stresses.

Yet, you can easily commute into Norwich from Blakeney making this house a very attractive proposition because it isn’t just a house, it’s the north Norfolk lifestyle it offers too.

This house has four bedrooms so is ideal for a family but also perfect for a couple with visiting children or grand children.

The current owner has extensively refurbished it inside so it now boasts a beautiful hand built kitchen created by a local craftsman with a Dijon limestone floor, open plan with a large area ideal for entertaining or simply sitting and enjoying the view over the garden at the rear and the fields adjoining.

However, there is a sitting room where you can get cosy around the woodburner and a study which could be made into a large downstairs bedroom if required. You also have the added benefit of a well equipped utility and a second kitchen/boot room ideal for muddy feet either from your dog, children or husband.

All the en suites are very luxurious and contemporary with a new pressurised shower system in place meaning you get lots of water and really hot too when you need warming up from that bracing walk.

There is an integral double garage so you can bring the shopping straight inside.

And outside, you have those two acres of gardens leading to the woodland at the bottom where there is a summer house perfect for enjoying those long summer evenings.

This garden lends itself to children because it is private and safe but offers all the delights of being able to play hide and seek and for camping - forget the iPad and Xbox - this house offers good old fashioned fun both for kids and grown ups too.
