Property Description

The Property

2 Staithe Cottages forms part of a bespoke development of three terraced cottages in the charming and sought after Stalham Staithe, designed by award winning SMG Architects. Just a minutes walk from the beautiful River Ant and the start of the famous Norfolk Broads these new homes fit comfortably in their village surroundings and offer a delightful mix of traditional external design with modern internal spaces and contemporary finishes.

This middle terrace cottage offers accommodation over three floors, with an open plan living space on the ground floor encompassing kitchen, dining and living space; two bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor and master bedroom with en suite on the top floor. There is a good sized enclosed garden and off street parking to the rear.

On entering the cottage the ground floor offers a lovely sociable living space with fully open plan living. The fitted kitchen features integrated appliances including fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven & hob and there are bi-fold doors out to the garden to the rear. There is a charming modern sash window looking out to the front of the cottage and a downstairs loo.

Upstairs on the first floor there are two double bedrooms, the larger to the rear of the cottage and the smaller to the front with a good sized family bathroom featuring a bath with mains pressure shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Upstairs again on the second floor is the master bedroom with velux window to the front and window to the rear, with a view to the water beyond and an en suite shower room with WC and wash hand basin.

The cottage is designed with energy efficiency in mind, it is super insulted and the central heating is driven by an environmentally efficient air source heat pump. Therefore the running costs of the property should be minimised.


Staithe Cottages are located on a quiet road with unrestricted parking to the front and a traditional front door.

The enclosed rear garden has a patio area, ideal for al fresco dining and enjoying a summer BBQ and a lawn for children to play or to recline in the sunshine with a book. There is also a wooden cycle store in the rear garden.

Parking to the rear is accessed via the driveway, shared between the three cottages and the enclosed rear garden is accessed from the parking area.
