About this Property
Offering a fantastic opportunity for either comprehensive renovation or full redevelopment (subject to planning), this substantial five bedroom chalet bungalow occupies a stunning south facing waterside plot that extends to approximately 0.75 acre, just off the River Bure within one of the Norfolk Broads’ most sought after villages.
The existing property requires extensive improvement, currently offering accommodation that consists of an entrance hall, study, two large bay fronted reception rooms, kitchen, five bedrooms, one en-suite shower room, two bathrooms and a cloakroom. There is also an attached double garage.
The substantial elevated plot looks out over open farmland to the front aspect while leading down to the water’s edge to the rear. The quay headed frontage extends to approximately 80ft and currently includes a mooring dock measuring 40ft x 22ft (formerly the site of a boat shed) and a slipway.
Planning permission had been obtained in January 2014 (BA/2013/0371/FUL) which allowed the existing property to be dramatically extended and re-modelled. This permission has subsequently lapsed, but could of course be re-submitted. However, there is clearly scope for a completely new approach, making the most of the scale, location and potential that this site has to offer.

The substantial south facing rear garden extends to approximately 320ft long and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs.
