About this Property

A beautifully presented, high quality conversion of an impressive Grade II listed granary looking out over the water with direct access to the River Ant.

Subject to a comprehensive programme of works during 2004/5, this imposing detached riverside residence originally dates back to the early 1800s, when Norfolk wherries would moor underneath the property to collect grain ready to transport it via the full Norfolk Broads network.

This tasteful and intelligent conversion manages to successfully retain the period charm and character of the original building while introducing a stylish and contemporary finish throughout.

The generous accommodation comprises an entrance hall, cloakroom, study, and a dual aspect sitting room with direct access out onto a south west facing raised sun deck looking out over the water to the river beyond. Steps lead down into the stunning kitchen/dining room with high ceilings, high gloss units and bi-folding doors leading out to the water.

The first floor landing leads to a contemporary shower room and two bedrooms, the larger of the two offers far reaching views. The master bedroom is on the second floor, complete with an open plan en-suite bathroom and impressive river views. An additional double bedroom then completes the layout.

Features include a wealth of period style features including exposed timbers, painted brickwork, some original oak floors and many leaded light windows. Oil fired central heating via radiators with underfloor heating to the kitchen/dining room. There is off road parking and a substantial garage, and the rear garden enjoys a south west aspect with a private 35ft mooring. With storage for dinghies/kayaks etc directly underneath the property.

Whether as a full-time riverside residence, a stylish second home or as a high quality holiday let, The Old Granary is guaranteed to impress.

Early viewing is strongly recommended.
