Nurse House is a four bedroom detached home set back from the road in a generous private plot in the desirable village of Horstead. Screened from passing traffic by a tall hedge bracketed by an in-and-out gravel driveway, there is parking for several vehicles in front of this 1930’s property which has been extended and improved throughout.
The entrance hall runs centrally through the house; on one side is the welcoming and cosy living room, complete with woodburning stove and recessed bookshelves, which in turn leads to a ground floor room which could be used as an office, reception room or, as currently, a bedroom.
The other side of the ground floor is filled by a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, which has been recently refitted by the current owners. This bright and airy space extends into an L-shaped dining room and seating area – truly the heart of the home – with a study beyond and twin sets of French doors leading out onto a paved patio and lawned rear garden. A separate boot room allows easy access for muddy feet to the side of the property, complete with downstairs cloakroom and coat cupboard.
Upstairs, three bedrooms radiate from a galleried landing, with a family bathroom completing the accommodation.
Just a stone’s throw away from the renowned Recruiting Sergeant public house, this family home is ideally situated to benefit from all that Horstead, and the neighbouring village of Coltishall, have to offer.
Horstead lies alongside the banks of the River Bure, approximately 7 miles north of the cathedral City of Norwich. Amenities are plentiful, with a parish church, the pub, a delicatessen and florist all within close proximity, whilst the neighbouring village of Coltishall offers a wide range of local services including an OFSTED Excellent primary school, medical centre, 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, a tea room and village bakery 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. From Norwich, London Liverpool Street is accessible in 90 minutes by rail.
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.
