Impressive modern home on sought after road.
Forge Cottage is a distinctive and substantial village home, located on one of the most sought after roads in the Broads. With an attractive Dutch gable on the main south to south west facing façade, and bespoke Victorian style sash windows, the handsome house stands well behind a pair of fine wrought iron gates.
The accommodation, of over 2600 square feet, is immaculately presented and set over three floors with a central wooden staircase. The ground floor rooms are all accessed off a central hall, including a spacious dual aspect sitting room with woodburner and French doors to the garden, a delightful garden room, and a well-fitted kitchen including instant hot water tap and double doors through to the dining room. There is a useful utility and WC to complete this floor.
The impressive principal bedroom is on the first floor, with dressing room and generous bath/shower room finished to a high standard. There is a further double bedroom and a bedroom with fitted wardrobe and bespoke desk and shelving that could be removed if required. The first floor is complete with a family bathroom. On the second floor are two substantial bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and a further shower room serving the fifth bedroom.
The house benefits from underfloor heating to all floors, with individual thermostats in each room.
The house is approached off Beech Road through impressive wrought iron electric gates, mounted on brick pillars between the boundary brick wall. This leads onto a shingle driveway, and to a parking and turning area to the front of the house. This area also adjoins the double garage, a purpose built building with studio/annexe above with underfloor heating and shower room/WC. This excellent space could provide an ideal work from home area.
The gardens sweep round from the north-east of the house to the south-west and are mainly laid to lawn, with herbaceous beds, shrubs, raised beds and a woodland area with pathways through. A large paved terrace provides a further area to enjoy the outside, with access from the garden room and sitting room.
Within the grounds are useful sheds, a greenhouse and storage.

This house really impressed me with the character it enjoys, yet in a modern building, with some great design features including the Dutch gable, a distinctive architectural feature of Norfolk.Ben Rivett
