A unique and rare opportunity to purchase a "Colt Houses" designed & built home set on a beautiful secluded large plot on this select & much sought after residential road. The property, constructed in 1965, is of an award winning timber frame design with Cedar cladding, providing surprisingly spacious, well planned & laid out living accommodation which includes: a fitted kitchen/diner, separate lounge, conservatory, ground floor cloakroom & utility room, together with 3 separate bedrooms and bathroom on the 1st floor. There are sealed unit double glazed windows throughout, gas fired central heating and fitted carpets are also included. The property is centrally positioned on this large, mature plot extending to approximately a third of an acre (STS) which has been lovingly maintained by the present owners with inset specimen trees, borders & lawns. In addition, there is an incredibly spacious detached double garage with a first floor art studio, complemented by a purpose built open car/boat store.
Lowood Cottage is ideally situated in the heart of Oulton Broad with easy access to Norwich, Ipswich & London via the mainline railway stations and with it being the gateway to the Norfolk Broads National Park & surrounding areas of outstanding beauty, the property would suit any boating or nature lover.
A once in a lifetime opportunity, where an early internal inspection is highly recommended to avoid any disappointment.
