Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Placed for sale for the first time in 80 years, this wonderful 3/4 bedroom detached property is situated in a highly sought-after location. It boasts light and spacious accommodation, with the principal rooms to the ground and first floor enjoying views of the extensive gardens and of Oulton Broad, which gives access to the sea, and to the River Waveney and Broads’ river network beyond.

Originally a two-room bungalow, the property was rebuilt and substantially extended in 1969. A complete refurbishment in 2011 included rewiring, a new central heating system, refitted kitchen, utility room and bathrooms, with uPVC double-glazed windows and doors fitted throughout the house. Recently redecorated, the house is ready to move into, however as it is situated on one of the largest waterfront plots on the road, it also offers huge potential for further extension (STPP).

Oulton Broad, situated in the heart of the broads, offers year-round water sports, cafes, riverside eateries, fishing spots and an Edwardian park – the ideal place to spend a day on The Suffolk Coast. If you fancy trying your hand at sailing, the Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club run a range of courses and offer boat hire and host many regattas through the year.
