About this Property

A truly awe inspiring property!

Surely the ultimate Broads residence, offering a breathtaking combination of location, character and scale that is not only unique, but also unrivalled.

Occupying a tranquil, yet commanding position on the banks of the River Bure with beautiful far reaching views, the property has many features; these include multiple moorings with a private mooring basin and two wet boathouses, garaging for five cars with extensive off road parking and incredibly versatile accommodation extending to approximately 5,000 sq ft.

The property had been divided into two separate dwellings until it was successfully re-combined by the current owners in 2009. It was then subject to a comprehensive programme of renovations with the current remodelled layout, offering incredible versatility, easily allowing for multi-generational living.

In total the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 5.5 acres. This includes a substantial parcel of land on the other side of Beech Road, laid out as a picturesque woodland water garden, home to an incredible variety of bird and wildlife with access by boat out onto Wroxham Broad.
