    “Great view but the rest of the property is in desperate need of a make over.”

    The wallpaper is coming off and as been held on with packing tape. The garden is in a shocking state. I think you should check the property?

The property

This delightfully-presented first floor boathouse offers studio style accommodation and balcony set next to stunning surroundings of The Weirs lake and the South Walsham Broads. All first floor, this charming property provides a fantastic base for a relaxing break. A single door presents a stairway from the ground floor to the first floor with views of the lake below. The stairs continue to an open plan living area. The living area has a double bed, table and two chairs with a fantastic view of the South Walsham Broad through its vast windows and glass doors at the end of the living room. The living area pairs with the kitchen, electric hobs, microwave, toaster, fridge and ice box. The back of the property leads onto the shower room, with shower, heating, basin and WC. Outside guests can experience the peace and tranquillity of the area on their very own balcony furnished with two chairs and table, ideal for meals with glorious views, or simply a place to watch the abundance of wildlife and sail boats go by. The South Walsham Broads are perfect for pike and coarse during the fishing season (16 June through to 15th March). The intimate village of South Walsham is nearby as is Pilson Green which has pubs/eateries.. Also why not spend a day out walking through The Fairhaven Woodland and Water Gardens, set just a mile from the property, along with fine sandy beaches a 20 minute drive away. Whether it's a romantic getaway or simply looking for somewhere new to take the boat fishing, this location is to be enjoyed any time of the year.
