This seven-bedroom home occupies a tranquil yet commanding position on the banks of the River Bure in Wroxham and comes with a private mooring basin, two wet boathouses and around five and a half acres of gorgeous gardens and grounds – including its own woodland water garden.
It had been divided into separate homes but has since been re-combined to offer versatile living space, complete with a large kitchen/breakfast room and lots of entertaining space.
Naturally, due to its location, the property offers some amazing views, with full-height bay windows and French doors maximising its light and space.
A dressing room and en suite is included with the master bedroom, and on the decking outside there is a sunken hot tub and separate Hydropool swim spa.
Outside, it has two separate gated driveways, a five-car garage and a south-facing front garden, complete with a large ornamental pond and a footbridge leading up to the front door.
