Location If you like water and have the desire to live near a small river then this house could well be the one. The garden to Whitegate is long and runs down to the River Thet which is great for canoeing or simply those who enjoy the wildlife that the river brings. The surrounding countryside is gently rolling with the nearby West Harling area of Thetford Forest offering excellent facilities for walkers, cyclists and horse riding. The village has an active community and whilst being limited in amenities, the well served village of East Harling is only 3 miles distant and the larger towns of Thetford and Attleborough are some 6 miles away, both having railway stations on the Norwich to Cambridge line. At Diss (10 miles) there is a mainline railway station on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line with a journey from Norwich to London taking around 90 minutes. There is good access onto the A11 corridor which runs approximately 1½ miles from the village with Newmarket around 45 minutes away and Cambridge within the hour. The regional city of Norwich lies around 20 miles to the north which has the benefit of an International Airport.  

The Property Built in the 1970s, this much loved family home has generously proportioned and naturally light accommodation. The vendors have put their own stamp on the property over the years and have added quirky and artistic features along with carrying out general maintenance and improvements including upvc windows to part and solar roof panels. A purpose built ground floor extension has also been added which comprises a bedroom, wet room and rear lobby with access directly into the rear garden and this is linked to the house rather unusually by a Russian railway carriage. A ground floor shower room offers flexibility and there is a first floor shower room which would now benefit from an update. The kitchen has a good number of storage cupboards and a door opens from here directly into the double garage which doubles up as a utility room.  

Outside The grounds and river frontage are what really makes this property so special. The house is hidden from the road and the front looks like any other house from the 1970's but when you go past the parking area around the side, the grounds open out onto a vast spread of woodland, interspersed by grass pathways where you come across various garden buildings of all shapes and sizes. It is fair to say that almost nothing in the garden is 'normal' including the Russian themed houseboat moored to the bank (yes this is part of the sale!). Overall the property is set within 1.031ha (2.55ac) but it feels much more. 

The Workshop and Studio The owner is a sculptor and there is a tall workshop barn, attached to which is the studio area with shower room and kitchenette so as not to be disturbed when in full flow. For those not needing such a space, it could perhaps be used as an annex (subject to obtaining appropriate consent) and currently extends to around 1,450ft² which is the size of a spacious three bed home. 

Services Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water. 

Directions From Diss head west on the A1066 towards Thetford. Continue through the village of Garboldisham and take the third turn on the right signposted Shadwell. Continue through the village and turn right onto The Street and into Bridgham. Follow this road into the centre of the village and Whitegate will be found on the right hand side, the driveway being situated at the beginning of a bus stop
