In total, the garden and grounds extend to approximately one acre with the vast majority of the plot located to the rear of the house, enjoying a south facing aspect.
The rear garden is loosely divided into three sections, the first being a sizeable formal garden with a large newly laid south facing terrace running the full width of the house looking out over an immaculately maintained lawn with mature, well stocked borders.
Steps lead down to the ornamental garden with well tended, decorative hedging, and this in turn leads to the far end of the plot, the idyllic waterside garden. The perfect setting for anyone with an interest in water-based pursuits.
A slipway offers the perfect launching point for kayaks, canoes or paddleboards. There is approximately 100ft of quay headed private mooring to the side, providing spaces for 2-3 boats with a further 75ft of quay heading directly onto Lime Kiln Dyke, offering the ideal vantage point to sit and fish or simply to sit and watch life on the water float on by.
There is also an impressive detached boat house of timber construction under a tiled roof measuring 33’6″ x 21’8″ with water and shore power provided.
A further mooring measuring approximately 25′ x 15′ sits directly in front of the boat house, leading straight out onto the dyke.
From Lime Kiln Dyke, it is a journey of barely one mile to get to Barton Broad, Norfolk’s second largest Broad, a 164 hectare nature reserve owned and maintained by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, reputed to be one of the places that Nelson learned to sail, Barton Broad has one of the most important sailing scenes on the Broads.
Home to the Norfolk Punt Club and the Nancy Oldfield Trust, a major regatta is held every year during August Bank Holiday when hundreds of boats flock to the Broad to race. A truly magical location.
The neighbouring village of Neatishead offers a variety of amenities including The White Horse Inn, a community run village store, state of the art village hall and a primary school, rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2019.
