This impressive and immaculately presented family home consists of six double bedrooms served by six bathroom/shower rooms and a cloakroom, four generous reception rooms, three of which enjoy breathtaking views out over the grounds and beyond across Filby Broad.

At the heart of the property is the beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive range of fitted units finished with granite worktops and complemented by a nearby utility room.

The majority of the garden extends to the rear of the property and are dominated by the striking views out over the broad. It is a haven for local wildlife and is a truly tranquil corner of the Norfolk Broads.

Greatly improved by the current owners, recent works have included the replacement of the bathrooms and shower rooms, newly laid carpet and Amtico flooring throughout, newly installed multi-fuel burner and LPG fireplace and complete redecoration inside and out.

Filby Broad is one of the Trinity Broads, along with Ormesby Broad and Rollesby Broad, linked but land locked, so they are not connected to the rest of the Broads network. To further protect the local environment and eco system, access to the Broad is restricted and granted exclusively to a limited number of village residents, courtesy of permits awarded by the Parish Council. We are advised that a short waiting list is in operation.

This status ensures that Filby Broad benefits from a level of privacy, peace and tranquility that is rarely found elsewhere on the Norfolk Broads.

“Thank you for your help with the sale of my property. I found your assistance both sympathetic and professional. Your brochures were very impressive. ”

Dr Alston

“Waterside delivered a first class service. All my enquiries were responded to promptly, and my property was sold quickly. What more could I ask for? Thank you Philip, Robert and Joy.”

Mr and Mrs Crawshaw

“We would like to thank you all for your help and advice. Nothing was too much trouble, and it was very reassuring that whenever we arrived at the office or phoned, you always had time to answer our queries or worries!”

Mr and Mrs Lewis

“Our experience with yourselves during our buying process has been professional and friendly. You have been quick to respond to any questions that were asked of you, and keeping us updated on the progress of our purchase. Thanks to Robert for finally finding our dream home for us, we much appreciate your time and efforts. Thank you all.”

Mr and Mrs Webb

“We only have praise for the way Waterside handled the sale of our property. Always courteous and professional, and kept us informed on a regular basis on progress over complications. Clearly a great team spirit operates in the office with everybody in the loop with what was going on. We would not hesitate in recommending Waterside to other potential sellers/buyers of waterside properties. Thanks for a job well executed.”

Mr and Mrs Hopkins

“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
