Backwater House in Norfolk, England

Sep 18, 2017

Category: Living

The sights and sounds of an undulating body of water act like a tonic; they calm us down, and force us to take a moment to step back. This, in part, is why the Backwater House by Platform 5 Architects is so appealing.

Set in a hidden lagoon in Norfolk, England, this one-of-a-kind home is the perfect retreat for those looking for a weekend to unplug and recharge. The home and its large deck jut directly out over the water providing a 360-degree view of the lake surrounding the home. With four bedrooms, a large kitchen, boat house, and plenty of natural light, the inside of the home is just as attractive as its surroundings. Whether your idea of relaxing involves a lot of sitting in front of a wood burning fire with a book, or canoeing around for as long as the sun is up, this gorgeously designed rental is more than an ideal spot to escape to.
