About this Property

An immaculately presented and incredibly versatile detached Broadland residence set in impressive grounds, extending to approximately half an acre, backing onto open fields looking out over the parish church with views to the front over the village moorings leading out onto Malthouse Broad.

Located in the highly regarded and unspoilt village of Ranworth, the property offers generous and flexible accommodation that consists of an entrance porch, entrance hall, reception hall, cloakroom, a beautifully refitted kitchen/dining room finished in solid ash with Bushboard and granite worktops and including an Everhot cast iron electric range cooker. The elevated triple aspect living room includes an open fronted wood burner and there is also a study/bedroom/playroom. The first floor comprises the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe, en-suite shower room and views of the moorings, with two more double bedrooms and a family bathroom completing the accommodation in the main house.

The property also includes a fully self-contained annexe offering accommodation, all on the ground floor, that includes an entrance hall, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. Finished to an equally high standard and including its own private garden, the annexe offers comfortable accommodation for an elderly relative, but would also be perfectly suited as a well placed holiday let. Alternatively it could be incorporated into the main house creating a substantial 5-6 bedroom residence.

The current owners have taken great care over the extensive programme of improvements that they have carried out, and the property now benefits from a number of features that include new UPVC sealed unit double glazing throughout, fitted in 2015, refitted, contemporary bathrooms/shower rooms, oil fired central heating with a boiler fitted in 2009 and vertical blinds fitted to every window.

The generous south facing grounds are well enclosed and private, whilst backing onto open fields where alpacas are often seen, all in the shadow of the iconic St Helen’s Church (sometimes referred to as the Cathedral of The Broads). There is ample private parking, a garage and a workshop, and the plot is within 150 metres of Malthouse Broad, with the privately run Ranworth Moorings literally at the end of the driveway with rented moorings on offer, subject to availability.

A beautifully maintained property with generous and flexible accommodation set in a sought after location.

Viewing highly recommended.

Here’s what our customers say…

“I thought your service was very good, and in my opinion didn't need improving. You kept me well informed and any questions I asked you were willing to help me with. Your service was always friendly on the phone and in the office. I will certainly recommend you, and if the need arises will be happy to use your services again.”

Mr Terry

“We have used Waterside several times as Philip and his team always offer a first class service from start to finish. Many estate agents tend to let things ride after an offer is received but they continue to be on the ball, regularly chasing all other parties in the chain, which in the current Covid situation can prove difficult as most solicitors are working from home. They are extremely professional at all times and I would not hesitate to recommend them and use their services again. Many thanks ”

Mr and Mrs Cullumbine

“From the first viewing to completion the service provided by the Waterside team has been exemplary. Nothing has been too much trouble and our queries were answered swiftly and effectively. Robert has been a credit to the business, so a huge personal thanks to him. Thank you Waterside, great service, great team.”

Mr and Mrs Dixon

“Thank you Philip, Robert and Joy, it was a pleasure to deal with you. Now that I have moved in, the hard work starts! ”

Mr S Land

“Thank you for your help with our property, we would not hesitate in recommending you.”

Mr and Mrs Bainbridge

“We have been very happy with your handling of the sale of our holiday bungalow, under very difficult conditions, having to rely on email and phone calls. We would happily recommend your services to other sellers.”

Mr and Mrs Wright

“Thank you for all your help. We were very impressed with Robert, when he showed us several properties. He was very professional. If we can, we will always recommend Waterside to friends who are buying or selling property. ”

Mr and Mrs Manton

“Great service, great bunch of people! That just about sums it up!”

Mr T and Mrs K Blake
