Full description

A unique opportunity to purchase The Ferry House of Somerleyton which has its own mooring access and is complimented with panoramic, river views. The property is located on a five acre plot (subject to survey) , a peaceful spot for watching birds and wildlife, comprising lawned areas, reed marsh land and has various out buildings . However, it is in need of maintenance work. There is huge potential once the reeds are cleared for mooring, with the permission for the cuttings of over 750ft to go ahead, or for the sought after Somerleyton clay which is used in brick production. Currently there is an agreement by Lord Somerleyton for parking of a vehicle and mooring on the Somerleyton side of the Broads. Across the river, Somerleyton village offers shops, schools and a rail service to Norwich and Lowestoft. River Waveney forms part of the Norfolk Broads with excellent opportunities for boating, sailing and fishing. Viewing is essential to appreciate this idyllic secluded location.
