A TRADITIONAL PERIOD COTTAGE located in a PICTURESQUE WATERSIDE VILLAGE and RURALLY SET at the heart of the BROAD’S NATIONAL PARK, bordered to the north by the UPTON MARSHES and the meandering RIVER BURE and lies on the northern boundary of the historic market town of ACLE.
The IDYLLIC VILLAGE of Upton; its name thought to be derived from the Old English word for ‘Higher Settlement’, rests on the water’s-edge of theUPTON DYKE and the start of wonderful walks along the UPTON BROAD and MARSHES NATURE RESERVE; home to some of Norfolk’s rarest WILDLIFE and a SITE OF SPECIAL SCIENTIFIC INTEREST as well as an AREA OF CONSERVATION.
Stood handsomely back from a sedate village road and partially screened behind high natural hedging, Oak Cottage presents as an ENVIABLE ESCAPE TO THE COUNTRY, situated towards the heart of this RURAL RIVERSIDE VILLAGE. In its elevated position, Oak Cottage is approached over a broad shingle expanse that provides valuable OFF-ROAD PARKING for more than one vehicle. Steps rise to the formal entrance and a shingle pathway which leads to a discrete and sunny SEATING AREA. A timber gate to the side grants access to an ENCLOSED LAWN GARDEN with a raised TIMBER TERRACE and a sense of secluded privacy.
Oak Cottage enters into a practical entrance lobby with separate doors to a warming SITTING ROOM and a formal DINING ROOM. Both rooms connect to an authentically styled COTTAGE KITCHEN, which also leads to a UTILITY area and a useful ground floor SHOWER ROOM. To the first floor, separate doors off a GALLERIED LANDING open to a FAMILY BATHROOM, a SEPARATE CLOAKROOM and FOUR BEDROOMS; the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes.
Oak Cottage is further complemented by it IDYLLIC SETTING; a stroll to the WATER’S EDGE and the SCENIC STAITHE which plays host to The White Horse, a community owned PUBLIC HOUSE and SHOP. Beyond this Norfolk Broads village the SANDY SHORES of the NORFOLK COASTLINE and the historic city of NORWICH both lay within thirteen miles.
