Contemporary thatched home in tranquil waterside setting with moorings


The property is delightfully situated in mature grounds, quietly tucked away down a private road. It enjoys a peaceful and tranquil situation attracting a great deal of wildlife, yet within walking distance of the facilities of the village. Coltishall has a primary school, public houses, restaurant, hotel, doctors' surgery and pharmacy, post office, garage, hairdresser, supermarket and river access to the Broads Network. The centre of the Broads at Wroxham is approximately 3 miles distant whilst Norwich is approximately 9 miles.


Meadside is a beautifully positioned contemporary home finished to a traditional design of cavity brick construction under a thatched roof.

The property was completed in 2010 and stands in a delightful mature garden with views across wide lawns down to the river and moorings. The property was constructed with energy efficiency and modern technology in mind and features an underground heat source pump supplying the heating system and solar energy for the hot water. This high efficiency, coupled with the RHI payments, means that at present the property has free energy with payback which will continue until December 2021.

The principal rooms all enjoy views out across the lawns to the river and are well proportioned. The kitchen/dining area is partially open plan to the main sitting room with a double sided wood burner between the kitchen/dining area and the main sitting room. The accommodation has been arranged on the ground floor so that the current study can be used as a bedroom with an adjoining shower room. We draw your attention to the floorplans for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged.

The property is approached initially via a right of way down a private road which leads through a pair of timber gates to the private drive for the property. The private drive is gravelled with ample turning and parking areas for many vehicles and serves the large double garage/workshop with power and lighting. In addition, there is a thatched three bay open cart lodge.

Around the house are large paved terraces and pathways finished in a grey/green slate with the largest terrace on the south side overlooking the formal garden and River Bure beyond. Within the lawned gardens are a variety of mature trees and shrubs with dyke offering further mooring facilities for smaller craft. A bridge leads over to the island which houses the wet boathouse and facilities for eight moorings. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 2.217 acres (est).

2. Planning permission is in place to erect another pedestrian bridge from the main part of the garden to the island if required.
