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.
