Wonderful spacious and light 5-bedroom home with a beautiful blend of character and contemporary design.
Occupying a central position in the village of Oulton Broad, this 5- bedroom townhouse recently underwent major restoration across its three storeys, with renovation of the existing modern extension and complete replacement of the properties roofline. Other improvements include a new kitchen, modern bathroom fittings, a brand new central heating system and the introduction of efficient wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves.
The home still retains many Victorian features typical of its era with high ceilings, bay windows and well-proportioned rooms offering space, light and a sense of grandeur.
Entering No.121 at the front door, you are welcomed into the home via the main hallway. This hall widens and extends within the property, with stairs to first floor level and a useful under-stairs cupboard. Adjacent to the hall are the two main reception rooms; namely the dining room and sitting room. The spacious sitting room is positioned at the front of the house; with bay window intact and a fireplace housing a modern log-burner. An opening connects both reception rooms, with a further fireplace and patio doors in the dining room. A cloakroom and internal lobby complete the main house accommodation, before stepping into the rear extension. The extension comprises two main rooms, the breakfast room and kitchen, which are partly openplan, allowing for both easy entertaining and day-to-day family life. The first floor is given over to two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom and a family bathroom.
All rooms are characterful, again with excellent natural light. Of particular note is the bathroom which comprises a shower, bath and hand wash basin – with a fitted cupboard hiding the 'Worcester' boiler and adjacent hot water tank. A separate WC adjoins the bathroom. Stairs rise to the second floor landing with useful eaves cupboard before entering the master suite. Formerly two individual bedrooms, the owners have created an enviable master suite with large double bedroom, dressing room and en-suite shower room. From the dressing room, vantage point views offer looks down towards the Oulton Broad Marina. Externally, the property benefits from both front and rear gardens. To the front, is a private walled garden, mainly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and shrubs there-in. The rear garden has been landscaped and paved for low maintenance and ease, and is flanked by painted timber board fencing. At the rear of the garden is a detached garage and double gates which provide access to the courtyard for off-road parking. The garage has a roller shutter door, power and light – with a boarded loft space for extra storage. The property is situated in a popular residential area of Oulton Broad, offering a good deal of privacy and seclusion, yet is only situated a walk or short drive to the many facilities and amenities of both Lowestoft and Oulton Broad. The latter is the southernmost point of the Broads network and is popular with both residents and tourists. The house is located equidistant from both Oulton Broad train stations, with Lowestoft Station approx. 1 mile away. Further afield, 9-miles to the south is the wellknown coastal resort of Southwold on the Suffolk heritage coastline. The Waveney Valley town of Beccles is 9-miles and the cathedral city of Norwich 28-miles.
