About this Property

A massive three storey riverside property with accommodation that extends to over 5,600 sq ft, comfortably sleeping up to 16 people and run as a highly successful high end holiday let, generating a gross income of in excess of £80,000 and incorporating a substantial 45 ft square wet boathouse.

Set on a tranquil section of the River Thurne, with picturesque panoramic views out over the water and beyond over the National Trust nature reserve at Heigham Holmes, this truly impressive property was built in 2012 and designed as the ultimate riverside escape, with accommodation that consists of an entrance hall, games room housing a full size snooker table and large utility room. The first floor includes a breathtaking 47ft long triple aspect open plan living space with generous kitchen, dining and sitting areas, with French doors leading out onto the wrap around balcony, offering simply stunning views. This floor continues with a second sitting room/home cinema, four double bedrooms each with an en-suite shower room and an additional bathroom. A spiral staircase leads up to the second floor with two more large double bedrooms each sleeping four people, both with en-suite facilities.

Features include under floor heating and radiators via an air source heat pump, sealed unit double glazing throughout, private parking for several cars, and the capacity to moor various boats courtesy of the substantial integral wet boathouse that offers a 38ft x 19ft mooring dock, with a further 30ft of quay heading on the river’s edge. Ideal for those who wish to keep and use their boat throughout the year regardless of whether the property is let or not.

With a gross income of over £80,000, the investment benefits of this property speak for themselves.
