In Brief

Pendefords are delighted to present Manor Cottage – an improved and sympathetically extended semi-detached Victorian cottage with spacious four bedroom accommodation on a generous plot in the heart of the sought-after village of Coltishall, offered with no onward chain.

Directly opposite the church, and within easy reach of all the village amenties, Manor Cottage offers abundant character within a popular Norfolk village, and with essential features such as a dedicated home-working space and large private gardens, is sure to appeal to familes seeking a home which blends historical charm with the requirements of modern living.

The accommodation includes:

  • Four bedrooms, with en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobes to principal
  • Open-plan kitchen / garden room
  • Triple aspect lounge
  • Formal dining room
  • Feature family bathroom with vaulted ceiling
  • Large private gardens backing onto allotments
  • Off-street parking for two vehicles

The village of Coltishall lies alongside the banks of the River Bure, approximately 7 miles north of the cathedral City of Norwich.  Coltishall offers a wide range of local shops including a butcher, bakery, greengrocer, Post Office, convenience stores, pharmacy, art gallery and plant shop. Local residents are well catered-for with a broad range of takeaway cuisine available, whilst three public houses, a hotel with restaurant and a tea room provide further opportunities for leisure. The adjacent village of Horstead provides a delicatessen, a dining-led public house, florist and cosmetic clinic.

Coltishall is also home to an OFSTED Outstanding-rated Primary School, medical centre and church, and is approximately two miles from the bustling Broads centre of Wroxham with its railway station and range of local amenities.

Coltishall has good transport links, with regular bus services and near access to the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, providing routes to City centre, the wider county of Norfolk, and Norwich International Airport. The picturesque Norfolk coast is only ten miles away.

Manor Cottage was once the home of the village gardener, and the large private garden of this property is home to the former village stables and village water pump (now disused), which hint at its place at the heart of the village and its role within Coltishall’s history. Early viewing of this individual property is highly recommended.

Insight

Occupying a prime position opposite the historic church in the Broadland village of Coltishall lies Manor Cottage – originally a two-bedroom Victorian cottage which has been extended by its current owners to create a stunning four-bedroom semi-detached family home.

The sympathetic extension blends well with the original property and the surrounding architecture, and the scale of the interior accommodation is not immediately apparent from the exterior. Stepping thorough the Art Nouveau glazed front door into the  high-ceilinged hallway, an inviting study with an open gas fire and panelled walls provides essential home working space with a feeling of grandeur thanks to the feature bay window which gives views to the churchyard opposite.

Moving through the original dining room into the newer part of the property, the open plan kitchen/garden room is very much the heart of this home, with a self-cleaning glazed roof and a mixture of oak and travertine flooring giving a real sense of luxury and space. This feeling is enhanced by the glazed bifold doors which open onto a paved patio and raised wooden deck, and give access to the large garden – an important feature in any family home.

The sense of discovery continues as you enter the lounge – a triple aspect room with a feature bay window to the front, French doors to the rear, and a welcoming open fireplace with wood-burning stove.

On the first floor, the four bedrooms are full of character and charm, with bay windows to the front aspect and a Juliette balcony in the principal bedroom to the rear. With the vaulted ceiling of the family bathroom giving bath times a dramatic twist, this is a truly individual family home steeped in history and character which has been enhance by the current owners’ carefully curated decorative style.

In our opinion, Manor Cottage represents an outstanding opportunity for its new owners to acquire an incredible family home in a thriving Norfolk village, and demand is sure to be high for this  exceptional property.
