Backwater Norfolk is The Modern House pick for design-led holiday home in the UK!
''From the Cornish coast to a secluded lagoon in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. This waterside getaway in Wroxham was completed by London-based Platform 5 Architects in 2016. The timber-framed structure is clad in red cedar shingles and takes its cue from nearby boatsheds, with three low-rise bays that contain the main living areas. While the exterior blends in with the wetland surroundings, inside the four-bedroom house has a more contemporary feel, with a spiral staircase and a skylight. On the lagoon side is an abundance of glass and a canopy for enjoying the outdoors, whatever the weather, and on a hot day you can enjoy a drink on the jetty while dangling your feet into the water and keeping an eye out for the local family of otters.''
