The Broadland Village of Cantley is located East of the Cathedral City of Norwich and is tucked away in the Norfolk Countryside but located within only four miles of both Acle and Brundall. The village itself offers a range of amenities including a railway station, local public houses and restaurants and a Primary School. Being close to both Acle and Brundall means there is easy access to a variety of local shops, surgeries and of course the leisure activities associated with the Norfolk Broads.

DIRECTIONS 
Leave Norwich via the A47 heading towards Great Yarmouth. Proceed straight over the Brundall roundabout and through the single carriageway. Turn right across the dual carriageway signposted Cantley and turn immediately left onto High Road. Follow this road up and over the hill and into Beighton. Proceed through Beighton and into Cantley, taking the right hand turn onto Burnt House Road. Continue along this road, which leads to the railway crossing. Pedestrian access can be gained, which leads to the property, indicated by our For Sale board.

Passing over the railway crossing, a right of access leads to the main front garden. Panoramic views can be enjoyed across the marshes, whilst a timber gate leads to a low maintenance frontage with various hedges and shrubs.

AGENTS NOTE 
On the opposite side of the railway line on-road parking can be found which has been used by the nearby occupants for many years. There is right-of-way over the railway line and RSPB land, however, to allow deliveries and pick-ups. The rear of the house backs on to a regional railway line with an average of two trains an hour, many of which stop at Cantley station and therefore pass slowly. The rear courtyard is not included on the deeds of the property, but has been enclosed and used for the last 20 years. The current vendors utilise the wood burner for heating. A pumped radiator system exists but this has not been used in some years.
