About this property

DESCRIPTION Bywater comes to the open market for the first time in almost 17 years and is an increasingly rare offering having been thoughtfully adapted creating a functional home with the ability to derive an income, in a very special setting.

The whole enjoys an incredible outlook across its three acres of beautifully tended gardens and grounds which flow away to the east and comprise the main five-bedroom chalet bungalow enjoying spacious and versatile accommodation, a one-bedroom detached bungalow currently let on an assured shorthold tenancy, a super range of outbuildings and the idyllic gardens with a particular feature being the lake which peacefully rests on the Easterly boundary.

The main residence is approached at the front into a porch entrance which flows into the main hall. The principal rooms are located on the ground floor and comprise the main sitting room which links in beautifully with the dining room, accessed via double doors and the garden which provides access into the grounds. The principal rooms occupy the southern wing of the property. The kitchen breakfast room is accessed just across from the sitting room and enjoys a range of integrated appliances.

The bedroom accommodation is mainly laid out across the ground floor with four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and utility room. The main guest bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and enjoys fine views over the gardens. There is versatility here and any buyer may decide to occupy one of these rooms as a study/studio.

On the first floor the landing provides access to the principal bedroom suite and a store. The principal bedroom is an incredible space amounting to almost 33ft in width and enjoys a dressing room and four-piece en-suite. The views over the gardens from the first floor are a special feature of Bywater.

The Bungalow - The bungalow was converted around 2008 and has been rented ever since on an assured shorthold tenancy arrangement. The accommodation is spacious and well-arranged, comprising an entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen, dining room, sitting room, and one double bedroom with en-suite shower. The bungalow benefits from underfloor heating throughout the accommodation. The planning permission was granted in conjunction with the main residence.

Bywater is approached at the front, accessed between a large walled entrance into the shingled driveway which continues past the main house and up to the bungalow. The front gardens are fully enclosed by panel fencing and mature hedging being mainly lawned with a range of flower beds and borders which continue around to the south and into the rear gardens.

The rear gardens at Bywater have been wonderfully tended over the years and offer a great deal of privacy, being mainly lawned and provide wonderful views down to the water. A large terrace wraps around the garden room providing a super space to entertain with a small pond sat centrally between the property and a summer house.

A lovely feature of the gardens is a woven path which leads down to the lake where you can sit and take in the views across the water. Across the three acres there are a plethora of specimen trees which include an established Oak tree, a number of silver birches and a monkey puzzle tree beautifully bordered by box hedging and flower beds together with many others. The focal point to the gardens is the lake which occupies a substantial area at the rear and includes a water feature.

This is a wonderful opportunity for any buyer keen to establish themselves in a popular Broadland village, within striking distance of Norwich and Holt.
