About this Property

Built by the owners in 2004, this beautifully presented waterside residence is set just off the River Bure and offers well proportioned and flexible accommodation, a private mooring and a detached wet boathouse with generous ancillary accommodation suitable for a variety of uses.

Of timber construction under a thatched roof set on steel piles, this extended and improved riverside home has been designed to combine the best modern materials and standards of finish with the style and character of a traditional Broads residence, complemented by the idyllic location.

The accommodation comprises a spacious reception hall which also doubles as a dining room. Double doors lead to an impressive dual aspect living room with high vaulted ceilings and a view of the water; this in turn leads to the sun room, bathed in natural light looking over the mooring. The recently refitted and extended kitchen/breakfast room now has a contemporary finish combining high gloss units with Corian worktops and an abundance of built in appliances.

The ground floor continues with a utility room, shower room, two double bedrooms and one en-suite bathroom. The first floor is arranged as one spacious master suite with a generous master bedroom leading out onto a balcony offering river views, a large five piece en-suite bathroom, two walk in wardrobe/dressing rooms and a galleried study area looking over the living room.

The boathouse was built in 2007 and provides a secure undercover mooring for one boat and further ancillary accommodation, currently arranged as a 22ft long living room with kitchenette, double bedroom with covered balcony and en-suite shower room.

The landscaped gardens are laid mainly to lawn with a selection of decked and paved seating areas and a variety of mature trees, shrubs and flowering borders. There is ample parking for a number of cars/boats/caravans etc with a detached garage and a 32ft side on mooring.

Additional features include sealed unit double glazing, oil fired central heating, electric underfloor heating to the kitchen, master en-suite bathroom and the rear porch and a heat recovery system.

A high quality property in a tranquil location, early viewing recommended.

Here’s what our customers say…

“Thank you to Philip and his team for facilitating the purchase of our little house in the country. Your communications and organisations of services have enabled a very smooth purchase and transfer. We would be very happy to use your services again, and have already recommended your business to family and friends. Once again, thank you so much, your service has been excellent. ”

Mrs Ross

“Your performance during the sale of my property was excellent - 10/10. Telephone calls, keeping me informed of progress etc was much appreciated. I would not hesitate to use you for future sales!”

Mrs Fysh

“Having tried a recently established estate agents in our village and found them extremely wanting, we moved our riverside property to Waterside, which is where we should have gone in the first place. The difference was immediately apparent, we began to actually get viewings and we found both Robert and Philip to be extremely professional. Within a fortnight the property was sold and although subsequently, through no fault of theirs, this did fall through, Philip did not panic, and unlike the first estate agents, who tried to get us to drop the price every week, Waterside remained stoical. Within a very short period we had a host of further viewings and then the property was sold and handed over to the new owners two days after we finished letting it. We cannot thank Waterside enough for their competent and professional handling of the sale of our property and would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks again.”

Mr and Mrs Royall

“Thank you for your assistance in selling the above property speedily and successfully. We were very pleased with your overall presentation of the property, which we felt was very professional and we are sure assisted the sale. We appreciated the positive and professional attitude of Philip and all the staff we dealt with throughout the transition of the sale, along with the regular progress updates. We would be pleased to use your company again, should the need arise, and also recommend your services. Thank you again.”

Mr P and Mrs J Munday

“Thank you for all your help in the purchase of our mooring plot. ”

Mr J and Mrs B Sills

“Philip and Joy were extremely helpful throughout the transaction, keeping me advised of progress when nobody else would speak to me! If it wasn’t for these updates I would not have had any clue as to progress. This was an extremely painful process and involved some very difficult people but Philip and Joy remained professional throughout, and made it easier.”

Mrs P Baker

“Thanks for a great job very professional. Nice to be informed all the way through from the start. I was happy to give you the job to sell 'Westerley'. I have used 3 or 4 estate agents in the past, none have been as helpful as Waterside.”

Mr R Smith

“Very helpful, Philip handled the difficult bits very well, keeping everyone happy. We would definitely use Waterside again.”

Mr and N Mrs A Highton

“Attentive and professional service with good communication throughout. Many thanks to Philip and also to Joy for your advice and support.”

Mr and Mrs P Simmons

“Although the sale of our holiday cottage was more complex than we expected, Philip’s input and diligence was professional and reassuring. In our experience, lack of appropriate communication can make any legal situation more stressful than needed. However, Philip strived to keep the flow of information intact and progress the sale. Thank you”
