  • GRADE II LISTED
  • ENVIABLE CONTEMPORARY HOME
  • IDYLLIC RIVERSIDE VILLAGE LOCATION
  • AROUND THIRTY MINUTES TO NORWICH
  • LESS THAN TEN MILES TO THE COASTLINE
  • AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING & TRIPLE CART LODGE
  • THOUGHTFULLY RESTORED & CAREFULLY CONVERTED
  • FORMER MINISTRY OF DEFENCE GENERATOR STATION
  • PLOT EXTENDING TO AROUND TWO THIRDS OF AN ACRE

Once an innocuous looking building which was purposely built to appear as a rural chapel during the Cold War era to deceive and belie its hidden secret. Now this GRADE II LISTED, former hidden generator station, has been THOUGHTFULLY RESTORED and CAREFULLY CONVERTED into AN ENVIABLE CONTEMPORARY HOME, nestled on the fringe of the PICTURESQUE RIVERSIDE VILLAGE of Neatishead; an area of SPRAWLING NATURAL BEAUTY, rurally set amongst the WILDLIFE AND WATERWAYS of the renowned NORFOLK BROADS.

Standing forwards on a plot extending to around TWO THIRDS OF AN ACRE, The Generator House is approached between timber five bar gates that open to a generous shingle expanse which affords AMPLE OFF-ROAD PARKING and access to the brick and timber, TRIPLE CART LODGE. From the rear of the property the plot radiates outwards, creating a deceptively broad, SOUTH FACING blank canvas, with a backdrop of RANGING OPEN FIELD VIEWS.

The property enters into an impressive entrance hall which immediately captures the building’s FORMER FORTITUDE and now embodies this contemporary home’s ATTRACTIVE URBAN CHARACTER. A doorway from the entrance hall opens into a GENEROUS SOCIAL LIVING SPACE which is fashionably equipped with a SLEEK MODERN KITCHEN, a focal PRESENT-DAY WOOD BURNER and double doors which open to three opposing aspects. To the first floor a family bath and shower room and three bedrooms complete the accommodation; the master bedroom not only affords an EN-SUITE, but also boasts a JULIETTE BALCONY with double doors overlooking an enviable patchwork quilt of green fields to the rear.

The Generator House is idyllically situated for those seeking RELAXATION or RECREATION on the water. The nearby BARTON BROAD is managed by the NATIONAL WILDLIFE TRUST and is the second largest broad in the BROAD’S NATIONAL PARK, where a once youthful HORATIO NELSON is understood to have embraced an early passion for sailing upon these waters, while visiting his elder sister at the nearby Barton Hall.

Besides relaxation or recreation on the doorstep of the Broads waters, The Generator House is further complemented by its location; a neighbourly walk to the WHITE HORSE INN where fine food is complemented by locally brewed refreshment. Wroxham, the capital of the Norfolk Broads and home to the NORFOLK BROAD’S YACHT CLUB, is around four miles and it is less than ten miles to the beautiful SANDY COASTLINE and less than thirty minutes to the county’s historic city of NORWICH.
