No onward chain - 2 bedroom terraced bungalow - Small, private development for Over-55s - Fully maintained grounds - Popular village location


Havergate is a private managed residential development for the over 55s located in the popular Broadland village of Horstead. With just 27 properties arranged along a brickweave driveway and around a central green, this tranquil location offers a quiet haven from which to enjoy the plentiful local amenities in Horstead and the adjacent village of Coltishall.

Offered with no onward chain, this 2-bedroom mid-terrace bungalow, which is located centrally within the development overlooking the maintained communal gardens, has been recently redecorated and offers surprisingly spacious accommodation including a large PVCu conservatory.

The village of Horstead lies alongside the banks of the River Bure, approximately 7 miles north of the cathedral City of Norwich. Horstead has a parish church, highly-regarded public house, delicatessen and florist, all within walking distance of this bungalow, whilst the neighbouring village of Coltishall offers a wide range of local shops including a butcher, convenience stores, post office, service station, pharmacy, greengrocer, hair salons, dress shop, art gallery and plant shop. Local residents are well catered-for with a broad range of takeaway and delivery cuisine available, whilst three further public houses, a hotel with restaurant and a tea room provide opportunities to eat in and socialise.

Horstead has good transport links, with regular bus services and near access to the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, providing car and taxi routes to Norwich City centre, the wider county of Norfolk, and Norwich International Airport.

With the picturesque Norfolk coast only ten miles away, and within close proximity to the river, opportunities for water-borne recreation are never far away, whilst local walking routes are plentiful, along a network of quiet lanes and the secluded Bure Valley railway.

Due to the small number of residences on site, properties of this type rarely come to market in this location, and viewing is highly recommended.

The property benefits from a visiting manager, parking, grounds and building maintenance services, and buildings insurance, for which an annual service charge is payable.
