A substantial and well presented family home in sought after location


Under Ridge is situated in a secluded position in this sought after district less than 1 mile from the centre of Wroxham, the acknowledged centre of the Broads Network. Wroxham has good shopping, banking and transport facilities including a railway station with trains to the North Norfolk coast at Sheringham and to Norwich. From Norwich Station there are connecting trains onward to London via Liverpool Street.

Norwich, the Cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia, is approximately 8 miles distant and has an airport on the north side of the city with international flights via Schiphol. Schools are available at Wroxham and private schools in Norwich.


Under Ridge is a particularly attractive family home of circa late 1930s with later additions and alterations, set in an established and private garden in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. The house is of brick and part-rendered construction under a tiled roof.

The property was considerably improved and renovated around 2001 and during the current family's ownership, further works have taken place. In particular, the kitchen area has been opened into a delightful glazed garden room linking to the self-contained annexe, with attached double open-fronted cart lodge. Other recent works include considerable redecoration, upgrading of the heating and wiring systems and the replacement of the bathroom adjoining the master bedroom. The property has well proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights, particularly in the principal rooms which overlook the delightful mature garden. We draw your attention to the floorplans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged.

The house is approached via a pair of electric security gates which lead to a long sweeping drive with turning and parking area passing the front of the house and up to the open fronted double cart lodge garage. There is a separate access to the annexe and also a door to a boot room leading to the open plan living area. The main recessed porch serves the formal reception hall.

Mature trees and fencing mark the boundaries along the front of the property on the northeast with lawned garden and wide drive with ample parking for many vehicles. The formal part of the gardens are on the southeast side of the house which are overlooked from the delightful bow windows in the drawing room and have steps leading down to lawned areas with mature shrubs and plants. The garden extends around to the southwest and rear of the house with attractive large paved terraces which overlook further lawned gardens and mature shrubberies with trees in the distance. The terrace extends around the sitting room and garden room as well serving the sitting room for the annexe.

The landscaped gardens are a particular feature of the house backing onto a private wood giving privacy and seclusion. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 0.57 of an acre (est).
