We’re delighted to present this three-bedroom detached chalet bungalow in a private managed development exclusively for residents aged 55 and over in the popular Norfolk Broads town of Stalham.
If you’re searching for a high-specification, low-maintenance detached home in the Norfolk Broads with easy access to amenities, this could be the perfect property for you.
Constructed in 2021 by well-known developer McCarthy Stone, and located near the end of a private cul-de-sac with views towards fields at the front of the property, this immaculately presented three-bedroom chalet bungalow offers spacious and flexible accommodation exclusively for homeowners aged 55 and over in a private managed development with landscaped and maintained grounds.
The front gardens, which are maintained by the developer, incorporate two brick weave parking spaces directly to the front of the property, with level access directly into the welcoming entrance hall. From here, you have access to all the principal rooms on the ground floor, including the master bedroom at the front of the property with a luxury en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe.
Towards the rear of the property, there’s a bright and spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, well-equipped with a range of modern units and integrated Bosch appliances, and thoughtful design touches like the elevated single oven with a high-level microwave shelf over, making preparing meals in this sociable space an enjoyable activity – whether you’re cooking for yourself or entertaining family and friends.
There’s easy access to the private rear garden, with a set of French doors leading directly to a paved patio and offering views out from the dining table, whilst a separate utility room keeps laundry out of sight, and leads to a good-sized ground floor cloakroom.
We love the flexibility that a chalet bungalow offers, and with two generous bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, you have the choice of sleeping or living upstairs or downstairs. The current owners have elected to use one of these bedrooms as a guest room, and the other as an additional sitting room, and created a cosy and relaxing environment which takes advantage of the field views at the front of the property.
This home was completed in 2021, and whilst the majority of the properties on the development incorporate energy-efficient features such as solar panels, the current owners have enhanced their home with the addition of an air-source heat pump, new thermal store and app-controlled radiators – designed to give flexibility and control whilst minimising heating costs and maintenance.
Stalham is approximately 15 miles north-east of the city of Norwich, and this popular town is home to a wide range of amenities, all within walking distance of the property, including a supermarket, independent stores and cafés, medical centre, pharmacy, library and post office. Further amenities can be found in nearby North Walsham or Wroxham, and there are good public transport links to the city of Norwich, with its wealth of shops, restaurants and theatres, and rail services to London Liverpool Street within 90 minutes.
Stalham is also well-located to explore recreational opportunities in Norfolk, with The Norfolk Broads National Park on your doorstep and good road links by car or bus to the wide skies and sandy beaches of the Norfolk Coast.
