A GENEROUS and HIDDEN FAMILY HOME favourably SCREENED BY A WOODLAND seasonally carpeted by Bluebells and ALMOST ENTIRELY UNSEEN by passers-by and even unbeknown to locals. Standing back on a plot extending to just SHY OF ONE ACRE, with a wonderful green WOODLAND BACKDROP and OPEN FIELD VIEWS over the lawn gardens to the front, Bear’s Grove Cottage can found a QUARTER OF A MILE FROM THE PASSING ROAD, at the end of a rural lane. The private drive rises beneath a leafy canopy, passing between twin pillars as the property is approached over a broad shingle open expanse which provides AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING as well as access to the integral DOUBLE GARAGE.
Once a small rural hamlet consisting of several farm cottages, located to the north of the HISTORIC CITY OF NORWICH and on the southern outskirts of WROXHAM; known as the NORFOLK BROAD’S capital, Bear’s Grove is believed to have derived its name as a keeping point for circus dancing bears, then unable to stay within the city walls.
Formerly two cottages, brought together and roundly extended, Bear’s Grove Cottage now enters into a generous reception hall with separate doors to a CLOAKROOM, TWO FAMILY ROOMS, a SOCIABLE KITCHEN DINER and a UTILITY and a FAMILY LOUNGE off the inner hallway. Double doors from the lounge lead to a GARDEN ROOM, a second staircase and beyond to the integral DOUBLE GARAGE. To the first-floor, doors from connecting landings open to FIVE BEDROOMS; the master bedroom with EN-SUITE and a separate FAMILY BATHROOM and SHOWER ROOM.
The nearby waterside villages of SALHOUSE and WROXHAM are both situated along the meandering RIVER BURE and were important stopping points on the Aylsham to Gt Yarmouth route along the navigable River Bure; Wroxham became a thriving commercial centre and was later complemented by the growth in LEISURE SAILING and the ALL YEAR-ROUND APPEAL of the Norfolk Broads waters. The Edwardian appeal of the NORTH NORFOLK COASTLINE also gave rise to the expansion of the now BITTERN RAILWAY LINE, stretching from Norwich, stopping at both the Salhouse and Wroxham and onward to the seaside towns of CROMER and SHERINGHAM. The recent opening of the duelled NORTHERN DISTRIBUTOR ROAD further complements these waterside villages proximity to the historic city of Norwich and airport.
