Mak­ing a move...

EDP Norfolk - - Inside - the wa­tery won­ders of Brun­dall

SUR­ROUNDED by the mag­i­cal, tran­quil land­scape of the Nor­folk Broads and nes­tled on the banks of the River Yare, Brun­dall is the per­fect place to en­joy a day by the water.

But what makes this Broad­land vil­lage so spe­cial, is that while it is sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful coun­try­side, it is also only a few miles from Nor­wich and boasts quick and easy trans­port links into the city.

It is this best-of-both-worlds lo­ca­tion which makes it such a pop­u­lar place to live for all ages and the growth of the vil­lage in re­cent years with new hous­ing re­flects that de­mand.

The vil­lage has a wide range of ameni­ties, from shops, pubs and cafes, to a vil­lage school, com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties and a marina.

It also has a thriv­ing com­mu­nity spirit with a wide range of clubs and so­ci­eties, from dance and fit­ness classes and sport­ing teams and events to his­tory groups, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties and the­atre.

Of course, one of the rea­sons so many peo­ple love Brun­dall is its river­side set­ting and whether you are a keen sailor, walker, wildlife spot­ter or just en­joy the peace and tran­quil­lity of the wa­tery land­scape, it is the per­fect spot.

There are sev­eral mari­nas in the vil­lage of­fer­ing moor­ings and giv­ing di­rect ac­cess to the Nor­folk Broads. It is a great fo­cal point for life in the vil­lage and there is al­ways a great at­mos­phere among the boat­ing fra­ter­nity.

If you pre­fer to en­joy the Broads on the land, there are plenty of lo­cal walks lead­ing you through beau­ti­ful coun­try­side and both the RSPB re­serve at Strump­shaw Fen, which boasts count­less species of but­ter­flies and birds, and the Mid-Yare Na­tional Na­ture Re­serve are on the doorstep.

Whether you love old prop­er­ties packed with char­ac­ter, stun­ning river views, the prac­ti­cal­i­ties of a spa­cious bun­ga­low or stylish new fam­ily homes, there is a great choice of hous­ing to suit all de­mands and bud­gets.

For those look­ing for some­thing ex­clu­sive, a small lux­ury de­vel­op­ment boasts large, new homes start­ing at around £1m or per­haps if you pre­fer some­thing more tra­di­tional, you could have a spa­cious Vic­to­rian coun­try house full of stun­ning pe­riod fea­tures for around £700,000. If you are mak­ing your first step onto the prop­erty lad­der or look­ing for more space for a grow­ing fam­ily, Brun­dall has a wealth of mod­ern hous­ing, from two bed­room starter homes to large four bed­room de­tached prop­er­ties at a com­pet­i­tive price.

The ex­pan­sion of the vil­lage has not just seen more prop­er­ties be­ing built, it has also seen the de­vel­op­ment of a 12 acre coun­try­side park boast­ing al­lot­ments, a com­mu­nity wood­land and plenty of open space for fam­i­lies to en­joy. Along with the river, na­ture re­serves and Broad­land coun­try­side on the doorstep, it is lit­tle won­der that Brun­dall is such a pop­u­lar lo­ca­tion.Š
