Pendefords are delighted to present this three-bedroom semi-detached cottage in the exclusive hamlet of St James, adjacent to the Broads village of Coltishall, which is offered with no onward chain.
The cottage would benefit from renovation and represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a versatile property which is well-suited for a variety of uses, including as a primary residence, holiday home or an investment property.
Located on a quiet country lane with views over farmland to the front of the property, this traditional cottage, believed to date from the early 1900s, has been extended over the years to offer three bedrooms on the first floor, and an open-plan lounge/dining room in the original structure, with a kitchen, rear lobby and spacious ground floor bathroom occupying a single-storey extension to the rear. There is further scope for extension and improvement, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.
The cottage occupies an elevated position, with a predominantly lawned garden to the side of the property, and a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and leads to a detached garage to the rear of the plot.
St James is a small hamlet approximately ¼ mile from the sought-after village of Coltishall, within easy walking distance of the village’s riverside common with its well-regarded public houses, and is conveniently located for access to the wider amenities in Coltishall and the adjoining village of Horstead which include an OFSTED Excellent primary school, medical centre, pharmacy, butchers, delicatessen, bakery, greengrocer, art gallery, convenience stores and hair & beauty salons, as well as two churches, two further public houses, takeaways and boutique hotel and spa.
Situated alongside the River Bure at the gateway to the Norfolk Broads National Park, and just 30 minutes from the wide skies and open beaches of the Norfolk Coast, Coltishall is seven miles from the centre of cosmopolitan Norwich, with its international airport and direct rail service to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes.
This charming property is exclusively available through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists, and early viewing is highly recommended.
