WATERSIDE MAGIC

It is the magic of the waterside which makes Broad View Road the address many people have always aspired to live in, and with its frontage to the broad and a long, sweeping rear garden to sit in, Kilcreggan can fulfil a dream. The well laid out modern accommodation has large downstairs rooms which flow together to swallow up the guests who will love to come and visit, the superb kitchen/family room could in itself be all you need for everyday living. The quay heading is not that large, but you can sit by the water with your boat moored ready to ferry you to the craft you have on the swinging mooring just by.

ACCOMMODATION

One benefit of the slightly more mature modern property is the large window size rarely found in new houses, giving a light and airy feel and drawing the outside in, and the house is cleverly planned with its main aspect to the rear where the views over the Broad allow you to watch the racing white-boats or follow the waterfowl as they raise their chicks. Indoors, the reception hall opens into the flowing downstairs accommodation where the rooms are cleverly planned to look over the garden to the Broad beyond, and a balcony to the main bedroom is perfect for sitting and taking in the surroundings. Almost screened from the road, Kilcreggan could easily be missed as you drive along but this understated front elevation disguises the true form of this home which will accommodate a family, or be a haven for two. It is true that the garage has not been used for parking since the house was built and would need the driveway to be amended for access, it is used as a utility area and for bicycles and a work/store room. This would make a glorious office - all the better for working without the distractions of the Broad from the south side - or even a ground floor bedroom. The stairs rise from the family room so as to give an area for use as a study or library. The three bedrooms are all of a good double size and any of them would be enviable for their view, the master bedroom has a glazed screen partition for possible use as a dressing area, nursery or office. A shower-room (previously a wet room) on the ground floor compliments the outdoor use which an owner might enjoy, but if you're not out on the water there's plenty of garden to take pleasure in.

SITUATION

Oulton Broad is the most southern open water of the Broads and is designated within the Broads Authority national park, with a lock connecting to Lake Lothian and the sea beyond, and to the west a dyke leads to the river Waveney The Broad is a marvellous water resource used for recreation and leisure as well as offering a wildlife refuge, and the area around it is well regarded as a place to live, with plenty of facilities in its own right and with small town amenities available nearby in Lowestoft. The Suffolk coast and countryside are readily accessible, and this is where Suffolk and Norfolk share the unique wetland habitat special to The Broads but with the benefit of a cosmopolitan feel.
There are very few places where the Broads waterfront is developed, and nowhere else quite like Oulton Broad. Broad View Road is a lightly used cul-de-sac fronted by individual detached houses, with those to the south side of the road having enviable water frontage. The village itself has a friendly local shopping area at Bridge Road with cafés, restaurants and a delicatessen, and the Nicolas Everitt Park for a leisurely walk around to the sailing club, and has its own railway station,
Apart from being the most easterly part of the UK, the port town of Lowestoft is a centre for shopping, tourism and employment, with a culture of its own. Suffolk's largest town, Ipswich, is a commuter's train ride away from London and has large town facilities but many residents prefer to use Norwich which is readily accessible by train or by a forty minute drive. The city itself is rightly famous for its arts and culture and the vibrant night life, with night clubs, cinemas and theatres, and shopping facilities which are hard to beat. As the regional centre, Norwich is a busy commercial area and centre of employment, but exudes a sense of history and place which few other cities can match; this is the most complete medieval city in Britain and offers a rare blend of history and sophistication, with a modern outlook.

DESCRIPTION

This individually designed property dates from the 1980's and is built in the robust style of that period but with a layout which is more modern than its years. The house leaves the opportunity to add your own stamp; if you should you wish to there's plenty of room to look at the possibility of extending towards the rear, but this is home you could move into and forget the rest of the world. It looks good from across the water too, with its buff coloured brickwork being readily identifiable from a distance and gives you a timing mark when luffing on the race start.
It is the outdoors which gives the icing on the cake, to the rear is a wonderful, paved terrace for sitting out in the sun and listening to the slap of the sails of passing boats, and the long rear garden slopes down to the water's edge where the views could keep you occupied all day.
The house benefits from gas fired heating and has well-proportioned rooms which are built for entertaining, with light wood-block floors and is designed to draw the outdoors in. Look out from the bedrooms and see the world from a different viewpoint, open the windows and savour the sounds too.

DIRECTIONS

Head south from Norwich on the A146 Lowestoft road. On reaching Carlton Colville, bear left at the roundabout towards Oulton Broad. Continue along, going straight on at the traffic lights at the Flying Dutchman PH and at the next roundabout bear left, and head over the bridge. At the roundabout on the other side of the bridge, take the first exit (after the hotel) into Commodore Road. At the end of Commodore Road turn left into Caldecott Road. Following this road round to the right, in a short while bear left into Broad View Road. Kilcreggan can be found a short distance up, on the left hand side.
