About this Property

This captivating and picturesque riverside cottage occupies a truly idyllic location set beside Gay’s Staithe which leads, via Lime Kiln Dyke, out onto Barton Broad; perfect for sailing, a spot of fishing or simply enjoying the stunning scenery and the abundant wildlife.

Thought to have originally been a pair of Wherrymens’ Cottages, dating back to the 1700s, this delightful home has been sympathetically renovated, losing none of its character and charm, retaining a number of period features including wooden floors, latch doors and exposed timbers.

The attractive gardens wrap around three sides of the cottage and are laid mainly to lawn with a south facing sun terrace offering views over the private dyke and open countryside beyond, a mooring dock with slipway, gravelled driveway and garage.

Set in the highly regarded and unspoilt village of Irstead, with access to the entire Broads National Park, the property is equally suitable as a peaceful riverside residence, a perfectly placed second home or as a well appointed holiday let, and is available with no onward chain.
