Backwater House

Backwater House is the name of this spectacular property built next to a secluded lagoon in Norfolk, England. Designed by award winning practice Platform 5 Architects, the contemporary waterside house sits in a serene setting with panoramic views over a private lagoon. The unique timber framed house has three pitched roof bays, a separate boat shed, and a deep canopy that creates a sheltered outdoor area where you can enjoy the setting and the elements. The property is raised above the waterline, allowing floodwater to flow beneath a landscaped timber deck. Backwater has four bedrooms, can sleep 8 comfortably, and is available for vacation rentals.
