Home with a secret
Waterside, Bunwell Guide Price £600,000 with William H Brown Select 01603 221797 williamhbrown.co.uk
Tucked away on a quiet, country lane, Waterside, with its distinctive eyebrow windows, is an undeniably unique home in a fabulous setting with stunning gardens. Built around 20 years ago, it was designed by a wellregarded Norfolk architect, Peter Codling.
This spacious accommodation offers character and simplicity in equal measure under a Norfolk reed thatched roof. Particularly striking are the extensive gardens of timeless and natural appeal, which include a large seasonal pond, a haven for wetland plants and wildlife.
Around this is a large wildflower garden and to the rear of the property there is a walled garden which is only visible from the house, ensuring secrecy. This area of garden features a sizeable sun terrace with traditionally stocked borders.
There is also a vegetable garden with greenhouse and an orchard with productive fruit trees. The property offers excellent and well-proportioned accommodation including a beautiful triple-aspect sitting room with French doors opening onto a veranda and an inglenookstyle fireplace which houses a wood burning stove. The kitchen has been fitted with a range of quality wood and stainless steel units and appliances.
There is a lovely formal dining room with a door opening into the ‘secret’ walled garden, utility room, study and forth bedroom. There are three good-sized bedrooms with partially-vaulted ceilings which have exposed beams, as well as a bathroom. Waterside stands in a delightful setting, quiet yet with excellent road access to Norwich and Diss as well as the facilities in the village of Bunwell.
