Four bedroom detached bungalow • Approx 0.3 acre plot • Established residential location in Coltishall • Delightful private gardens • Off-street parking & garage • Immaculately presented • Sought-after Broads village

We’re delighted to offer this wonderfully private and immaculately presented four-bedroom detached bungalow, occupying grounds of approximately 0.3 acre in an established setting in the delightful village of Coltishall.

Set back from the roadway behind established hedging, this 1960s-built detached bungalow has been extended and improved to offer spacious and flexible accommodation in one of the Norfolk Broads’ most sought-after villages. 

Approached via a generous gravel driveway which winds past well-stocked borders and a feature slate bed with mature palm trees to the front of the property, this immaculately presented bungalow offers a private sanctuary within easy walking distance of the many amenities that Coltishall has to offer. 

Entry is via an enclosed entrance porch which leads to a central hallway, from which all the principal rooms are accessed. The rooms are arranged to provide clear separation between living and sleeping accommodation, and at one end of the hallway, the four double bedrooms and family bathroom provide a welcoming sanctuary.

The generous living room is an L-shaped, dual aspect space, with the benefit of ample sunshine thanks to large east and south facing windows, whilst a wall-mounted air conditioning unit keeps temperatures constant all year round. 

Off the living room, the dining room offers great views of the rear garden through a tilt and slide patio door, and the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room is a sociable area to cook and eat with ample space for a table of four at its centre. A good-sized utility room and separate shower room complete the accommodation. 

Outside, the property’s gardens combine elements of Mediterranean design with traditional local planting to successfully create a tranquil environment with a relaxed feel. 

The rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with mature fruit trees and established hedging. In addition to a paved patio at the rear of the bungalow, a brick-built veranda adjoins the single garage, providing the perfect year-round entertainment space, offering shade in the summer and shelter from the elements in the winter.

Detached bungalows in Coltishall are always highly sought-after, and this property, with its generous private plot of approximately 0.3 acres, in an established residential location, is sure to prove popular.

Early viewing is recommended, and is exclusively available through Pendefords – the individual property specialists.

Coltishall – Gateway to The Broads

Coltishall is our home, and this vibrant riverside village with its welcoming community feel has experienced a recent surge in demand for properties of all types and sizes. Once a centre for local brewing and boatbuilding, Coltishall boasts a wealth of amenities unusual in a Norfolk village of this size, and whilst the breweries and boatyards may be long gone, Coltishall still has three popular local pubs and plenty of scope for water-borne recreation. 

This individual home is within easy walking distance of the amenities of Coltishall, and benefits from a superb location within the village, and is about a 15-minute walk from the iconic Coltishall Lower Common, a popular riverside recreational area in the summertime, which boasts moorings and two well-regarded public houses. 

The wider amenities of the village include another popular pub, art gallery, two churches, hotel and spa, butchers, greengrocer, cafés, takeaways, convenience stores and fuel station – and these are all within easy reach, as is the OFSTED Excellent primary school, medical centre, pharmacy, and village hall with recreation grounds. 

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.
