We’re delighted to present this individual Norfolk property, in an established residential cul-de-sac location in the popular Broadland village of Horstead.
This well-presented property is offered with no onward chain, and is sure to prove very popular with a wide variety of buyers – early viewing is recommended.
If you’re looking for a home which is ideally suited to a quieter pace of life in a relaxed village setting, this could be the property for you. Originally constructed as a two-bedroom property in the 1960s, and in the same ownership for the past 55 years, this well-presented bungalow offers flexible single-storey accommodation in an established residential cul-de-sac in the heart of Horstead, and benefits from no onward chain.
Bungalows in this part of Horstead are always popular, in part due to the flexibility of layout that they provide. This charming property has been reconfigured by the current owners to suit their preferences by utilising the second bedroom as a dining room, and by the addition of a PVCu conservatory, which is ideally positioned to catch the sun during the mornings and early afternoon and provides the perfect place to relax, particularly in the summertime with the well-stocked beds in the rear garden in full bloom.
The living room is a cosy and welcoming space at any time of year, with plenty of natural light through its south and west-facing windows, and a feature fireplace as its focal point, which currently houses an inset electric fire. Both this room and the kitchen are dual aspect rooms, with a bright and airy feel and views over the generous and well-tended lawned front garden.
The bungalow is set back from the quiet roadway and benefits from a detached garage and ample off-street parking. It 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.
This home is sure to prove popular with a broad range of buyers, and early viewing is highly recommended.
