A substantial 5 bedroom chalet bungalow occupying a south facing waterside plot extending to approx 0.75 acre, offering a fantastic opportunity for comprehensive renovation or redevelopment, with quay headed frontage, mooring dock and slipway.

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.

Mr and Mrs Boast

“Waterside Estate Agents were very efficient with good communications and did their very best to secure the best price possible for our property. We are very pleased with the level of service and would have no hesitation in using them again. ”

Mr and Mrs Wilkes

“It would be hard to improve your service as I have been kept up to date with information at all times during the sale of my property. As we live some three hours away from the recent property sale it was greatly appreciated that local tradespeople were arranged by yourselves to enable the sale. Great to deal with Philip and Robert with their help and knowledge of the property. ”

Mr and Mrs Staines

“Excellent service from the Waterside Estate Agents team. Phil and Robert worked together to actively follow up enquiries and kept us updated on sales interest right through to completion. We couldn't have asked for better support.”

Although we were the purchasers, we felt able to contact Waterside when we needed information etc from the vendors or for liaising between solicitors.

Thank you Robert and Philip for your assistance and rest assured we will consider Waterside as our agents when we come to sell our beautiful property – hopefully not for a long while yet though!”
