About this Property

A stunning single storey waterside residence with spacious and versatile accommodation extending to approximately 5,600 sq ft, set in a picturesque, peaceful and private setting with spectacular far reaching views out over Filby Broad.

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 private and well-tended grounds extend to approximately 1.25 acres with ample parking for multiple vehicles, double garage, large workshop and a number of storage sheds.

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.

This beautiful, spacious and flexible family home occupies an enviable location that combines privacy and tranquility with easy access to a wealth of nearby amenities.

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.
