    About this property

    • Quietly tucked away off one of Beccles most sought after streets with river frontage, private mooring and two separate street side cottages currently let on shorthold tenancies.

      Originally the two cottages had a wealth of outbuildings. The current family renovated the major outbuilding which was later further extended, to create a comfortable family home enjoying views of the stunning garden, river and countryside beyond. Around this time the original cottages were altered to provide two separate dwellings which have been let.

      The remaining outbuildings are left for storage and garaging together with private parking. Therefore there is still further potential to alter the current arrangement further if required subject to planning consents being obtained.

      We draw your attention to the floorplan for a full explanation as to how the accommodation is arranged in the main house and the cottages, all of which feature gas heating with independent boilers. The Moorings in particular offers spacious well planned accommodation with scope for further adaptation. Many of the principle rooms enjoy views out over the garden and river.

      In addition to the outbuildings there is a boathouse and an additional garage both of which are in need of renovation offering scope for further development subject to planning consents being obtained.

      OUTSIDE
      The property is reached by a driveway that then leads via gates to a further drive and parking area and serving the garaging and outbuildings. The formal gardens are on the west side of the house and feature a large paved terrace, lawned gardens with a wealth of mature shrubberies and plants, under planted with bulbs leading down to the river and the private mooring. On the north side of the garden is a further walled garden providing access to the rear of the additional garage, boathouse and covered slipway. All of which are in need of renovation.

      SITUATION
      One of the major features of The Moorings is it's fantastic location being quietly tucked away just off the centre of the town yet giving the feeling of being in the countryside by the far reaching countryside views and riverside aspect.
