Offering picturesque views out over the River Bure with private mooring and generous, flexible accommodation including a two bedroom, self-contained apartment.

The property also includes an attached, yet self-contained two storey apartment, suitable for use as either a long term or holiday let, or perfect as a generous annex. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, utility room and ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
