Horning 5 Bedroom Detached house
Broads Haven, Potter Heigham,
A beautiful Broads residence set in a stunning, private and highly sought after location enjoying breathtaking uninterrupted views and a prized southerly aspect, on the banks of the River Bure.
This iconic riverside property was completely rebuilt in 2002 of timber construction under a thatched roof, set upon steel and concrete piles, and was carefully designed to be faithfully to its 1920s heritage while making the most of the contemporary building materials and the highest quality of finish.
This incredibly versatile property is made up of three distinct elements with the main house consisting of an impressive bay fronted living room with French doors leading out onto the river facing sun deck, a classic Shaker style fitted kitchen with a comprehensive range of appliances, two generous ground floor bedrooms, served by a spacious five-piece bathroom and a large L-shaped first floor bedroom with river views and an en-suite shower room.
Complementing the main house is a detached pod, or guest suite, offering a substantial double bedroom with a beautifully appointed en-suite shower room with its own private river facing sun deck.
The property also has a large detached and completely self-contained boathouse providing generous studio style accommodation, currently arranged as a large bedroom with kitchenette, en-suite shower room and has an inviting covered balcony offering some of the property’s best views looking out over the River Bure and the marshes beyond.
The boathouse also provides significant boat storage, currently housing two boats and it also offers a large utility room which, if needed could be repurposed as another double bedroom.
The impressive private and well-tended plot offers quay headed river frontage extending to approximately 150ft with a private slipway and an additional 100ft of mooring set directly behind the property on the adjacent dyke.
The secure grounds are fenced and gated and laid mainly to lawn with two established willow trees and a variety of flowering and shrub borders with a number of decked seating areas and private off-road parking.
The property is currently run as an incredibly successful high end holiday let, generating an annual income whilst still retaining capacity for ample owner use, full contents are available by negotiation.
