Three bedroom detached house • No onward chain • Fantastic location in the heart of Coltishall • Private gardens • Off-street parking & garage • Cul-de-sac location • Sought-after Norfolk Broads village

We’re thrilled to present this truly individual Norfolk property, tucked away in one of the most sought-after locations in the heart of Coltishall. With off-road parking, a garage and private rear gardens, this three bedroom home is available with no onward chain.

Tucked away down a quiet and established cul-de-sac, yet perfectly located between the riverside amenities of Coltishall’s Lower Common and the local independent stores in the village centre, this individually-built three bedroom detached house offers a private sanctuary in the heart of this sought-after Norfolk Broads village.

Nestling comfortably in its plot, this home was originally constructed in the mid 1980s – set back from the road with parking for three vehicles and a garage to the front of the property. The house is accessed by steps down from the driveway, with a paved pathway leading to a lawned front garden and then to a spacious entrance porch.

Once inside the property, a small entrance hall gives access to all the principal ground floor rooms. The large utility space and cloakroom are at the front of the property, with a living room and conservatory to the rear. A kitchen and adjoining dining room complete the ground floor accommodation. The current owners have modified the layout of the ground floor to suit the needs of their family by partitioning the once open-plan living and dining room to provide a ground floor bedroom – however if the new owners preferred the original open-plan arrangement, this would be relatively easy to reinstate.

On the first floor, a long landing gives access to three bedrooms (two doubles and one single) and the generous family bathroom, with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower cubicle.

All the bedrooms face the rear aspect of the property, with views across Coltishall’s varied rooftops towards the Church of St. John the Baptist.

The rear gardens are established and private, with a split-level lawn and a generous sandstone patio which catches the sun throughout the majority of the day. In the evenings, a shingled seating area near a small pond provides a relaxing space to sit and watch the sunset.

This individual property retains many of its original features and, whilst it would benefit from some updating, it represents an incredible opportunity to acquire a well-proportioned and very well-located family home with no onward chain. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this property, and is available exclusively through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists.

Agent’s Note: 

Under Section 21 of The Estate Agents Act 1979, we disclose that this property is being sold by an individual connected with Pendefords Ltd.

Coltishall – Gateway to The Broads

Coltishall is our home, and this vibrant riverside village with its welcoming community feel has experienced a recent surge in demand for properties of all types and sizes. Once a centre for local brewing and boatbuilding, Coltishall boasts a wealth of amenities unusual in a Norfolk village of this size, and whilst the breweries and boatyards may be long gone, Coltishall still has three popular local pubs and plenty of scope for water-borne recreation. 

This individual home is within easy walking distance of the amenities of Coltishall, and benefits from a secluded and central location within the village, just a short stroll from the iconic Coltishall Lower Common, a popular riverside recreational area in the summertime, which boasts moorings and two well-regarded public houses. 

The wider amenities of the village include another popular pub, art gallery, two churches, hotel and spa, butchers, greengrocer, cafés, takeaways, convenience stores and fuel station – and these are all within easy reach, as is the OFSTED Excellent primary school, medical centre, pharmacy, and village hall with recreation grounds. 

Situated alongside the River Bure at the gateway to the Norfolk Broads National Park, and just 30 minutes from the wide skies and open beaches of the Norfolk Coast, Coltishall is seven miles from the centre of cosmopolitan Norwich, with its international airport and direct rail service to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes.
