Set in a cul-de-sac location in the popular village of Horstead, this three-bedroom detached bungalow offers a fabulous opportunity to create a perfect family home close to the Norfolk Broads, and is available with no onward chain.
Dating from the 1960’s, this property retains many original features and, whilst it would benefit from some updating, the bright and airy rooms and flexible single storey accommodation make this a very versatile home which will appeal to a broad range of buyers.
On entering the property, an L-shaped hallway provides access to all the principal rooms. The triple-aspect lounge/diner is a great feature of this home, and the kitchen leads into the generous conservatory which offers panoramic views of the gardens beyond.
Three double bedrooms and a recently refitted bathroom complete the accommodation.
Sitting comfortably in well-maintained gardens, and benefiting from a detached garage and ample off-street parking, this property is well-located in the village and is just a short walk from the plentiful amenities that Horstead, and the neighbouring village of Coltishall, have to offer.
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, offering easy access for business and leisure travel.
Closer to home, this property is well-located to access the Broads network, just a short stroll from the River Bure at Horstead Mill, which is popular with kayakers and canoeists. On land, country walks and cycle rides are easily accessible thanks to a nearby network of quiet country lanes.
