A VERSATILE FAMILY HOME, readily commutable from the NEARBY HISTORIC CITY OF NORWICH or an ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY with the POTENTIAL TO ENGAGE IN HOLIDAY LETTING in a PICTURESQUE RIVERSIDE VILLAGE, known as the gateway to the renowned NORFOLK BROADS.
The property is understood to originate alongside the period houses of its time when Horstead and Coltishall became thriving commercial centres, reflected throughout both villages with some magnificent buildings. Then an important stopping point on the Aylsham to Gt Yarmouth route along the dividing RIVER BURE, neighbouring Coltishall had its own ship building yard where once many of the river’s wherries were built.
Stood slightly back from the passing road, Hillcroft is partially screened behind a low brick wall, which is complemented by natural hedging and approached over a shingle pathway to the front or a shared nearside path to a timber gate granting private access to the rear. To the rear of the property an ENCLOSED COURTYARD leads to a TWO-STOREY BUILDING with ENTREPRENEURIAL POTENTIAL, a small BRICK STORE and a pathway which leads to a REAR GARDEN, with an accompanying CARPORT that provides valuable OFF-ROAD PARKING which is accessed from Rectory Road.
Formerly two properties, Hillcroft enters to the front into a generous lounge with a doorway leading to a kitchen and beyond to a dining room. To the first floor, separate doors from the landing open to a family bath and shower room and three bedrooms.
Life at Hillcroft is further complemented in its setting; a stroll to the AWARD-WINNING PUB AND RESTAURANT, the Recruiting Sergeant, a FARM SHOP and the nearby HORSTEAD MILL for RIVERSIDE WALKS and WATER SPORTS. Beyond the bridge the charming Georgian village HIGH STREET AMENITIES in Coltishall can be enjoyed, with an OUTSTANDING PRIMARY SCHOOL, DOCTOR'S SURGERY, POST OFFICE and the ICONIC GRASSY STAITHE with its FASHIONABLE WATERSIDE EATERIES.
