About this Property
A substantial and versatile family home, comprehensively extended and upgraded by the current onwers, set in gardens and grounds extending to approximately five acres, surrounded by open farmland within sight of Acle Bridge and the River Bure.
With the Norfolk Broads on its doorstep and five acres of private land at its disposal, The property could lend itself to a number of additional uses including an equestrian facility, campsite, glamping with shepherds huts, certified location for caravans to name just a few (all subject to the required planning permission).
The property itself is also incredibly flexible with generous accommodation that comprises two large reception rooms, a fully fitted kitchen with breakfast room, spacious conservatory/dining room, utility room and four double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom/shower rooms. The existing layout lends itself to either a substantial family home or perhaps a bed and breakfast, and by converting the large integral double garage, a sizeable annexe could be created (planning permission required).
Thought to date back to 1850 and owned by the same family since the 1950s, the property was fully renovated, modernised and extended about ten years ago, and now benefits from full oil fired central heating by radiators, UPVC sealed unit double glazing, upgraded wiring and insulation.
The property provides extensive private parking with space for multiple cars/boats/caravans etc with a number of outbuildings, including a workshop and a double stable/storage shed.
Set a stone’s throw from Acle Bridge and the highly regarded Acle Bridge Inn public house, and approximately one mile from the large historic village of Acle, known as the “Gateway to the Broads”, served by an extensive range of amenities including shops, pubs, restaurants, schools, doctors’ surgery and a train station.
Close by is the Weavers Way, a 61 mile long scenic walking route which links to the north and east Norfolk coastlines. The property is also well placed for access to the A47, leading to Great Yarmouth, Norwich and beyond.
