Pendefords are delighted to present The Firs – a four bedroom detached chalet bungalow on a private plot of approximately 0.4 acre (stms) in the heart of the sought-after village of Coltishall, and offered with no onward chain.

Screened from the road by the tall conifers after which it is named, The Firs sits centrally in a generous plot. This detached chalet bungalow, originally constructed in the 1950s, benefits from three first-floor bedrooms and one ground-floor bedroom, two of which have en-suites. With a large kitchen/breakfast room, spacious lounge and dining room, and a dedicated study also on the ground floor, the flexible accommodation on offer can be easily configured to suit your lifestyle, with plenty of essential home-working space to be found throughout the home.

Built as the family home by a local builder who went on to construct the other bungalows which occupy the corner of Westbourne Road and Rectory Road, The Firs has been carefully conceived to deliver a sense of scale and space – with high ceilings and large windows on the ground floor, expansive  entrance hallway and a galleried first floor landing. With generous dormer windows to the first floor rooms, there is plenty of space on offer here. This is a home with room to breathe.

The sense of space continues outside the property as well. The generous gardens are enthusiastically tended by the current owners, who have added year-round interest and colour, combining a variety of planting with a range of mature trees, including apple and palm, which is more common in Coltishall that you might imagine!

The rear garden is also home to a substantial garage and workshop building, with twin automatic garage doors accessed from the long gravel driveway, and three separate workshop and storage areas which have a multitude of uses.

With its well-proportioned accommodation, large secluded gardens and superb location only a short walk from village amenties, The Firs will appeal to a range of prospective buyers, and is particularly suited to family life. If you’re looking for a large family home in one of Norfolk’s most sought-after villages, then The Firs should be top of your list, as in our opinion it represents an exceptional opportunity which is not to be missed.

This substantial home offers generously-proportioned accommodation on two floors, including:

  • Lounge
  • Dining Room
  • Kitchen / Breakfast Room
  • Study
  • Garden Room
  • Ground Floor Bathroom
  • Ground Floor Bedroom with en-suite cloakroom
  • Principal Suite with feature en-suite bathroom
  • Two further first floor bedrooms
  • Double garage and workshop block

The carefully-tended gardens, which wrap around the home, offer privacy and seclusion – a feeling enhanced by the property’s location on an established residential road only a short walk from the centre of Coltishall and its thriving local amenities.

The village of Coltishall lies alongside the banks of the River Bure at the gateway to the Broads National Park, approximately 7 miles north of the cathedral City of Norwich.  Coltishall offers a wide range of local shops including a butcher, bakery, greengrocer, Post Office, convenience stores, pharmacy, art gallery and plant shop. Local residents are well catered-for with a broad range of takeaway cuisine available, whilst three public houses, a hotel with restaurant and a tea room provide further opportunities for leisure. The adjacent village of Horstead provides a delicatessen, a dining-led public house, florist and cosmetic clinic.

Coltishall is also home to an OFSTED Outstanding-rated Primary School, medical centre and church, and is approximately two miles from the bustling Broads centre of Wroxham with its railway station and range of local amenities.

Coltishall has good transport links, with regular bus services and near access to the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, providing routes to City centre, the wider county of Norfolk, and Norwich International Airport. The picturesque Norfolk coast is only ten miles away, and Norwich offers mainline rail services to London Liverpool Street in 90 minutes

Properties of this type rarely come to market in Coltishall, and demand for this substantial family home is sure to be high. The Firs is exclusively available through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists, and early viewing is highly recommended.
