Insight

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 ground floor apartment is located conveniently close to the entrance of this quiet cul-de-sac with parking nearby. Overlooking the well-maintained grounds, entry to this property is through a small porch into the bright living room, which adjoins the cosy kitchen and leads through the property into the rear hallway, from which the remaining accommodation is accessed.

The layout of this home offers great flexibility – a double bedroom with built-in wardrobes can be arranged for double or twin beds if required, and the second bedroom can be used as a guest room, a dining room or study, or, as in the current arrangement, as a dressing room. 

Access to the rear garden is directly via the second bedroom, and this cosy exterior space has been paved for ease of access and maintenance, with well-stocked borders and a garden shed. The garden is enclosed by a wooden fence with a rear gate providing pedestrian access.

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, pharmacy, greengrocer, hair salons, and a range of hospitality venues. 

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 Bure, this is a wonderful location for village retirement, and viewing is highly recommended.
