2 Bedroom Flat For Sale
Breath-taking views across the valley and over the River Wensum for this Penthouse with open plan living, two bedrooms, basement and garage. This is arguably one of the best Penthouse apartments in Norwich.
“The Waterside” is a site of around 2 ½ acres situated beside the River Wensum, at Lower Hellesdon, with around 300 feet of frontage to the river itself. The site is made up of abundant grass and trees with the apartments housed in small units designed to look like large brick and tile houses.
The views of the river and the protected marshland on the opposite side of the river are outstanding. The marshland provides home to some amazing wildlife including Deer, Otter, Pheasant, Squirrel, Egret, Swan, Duck, Goose, and Parakeet - all visible from the main windows of this wonderful penthouse apartment.
The layout of this penthouse apartment was designed by the current owners. This design includes a very large Open Plan living area with a balcony overlooking the river. The kitchen / breakfast room and the master bedroom are both generous and there are 2 x bathrooms and a further room which can be used as a snug/study or as bedroom 2. Attention to detail at the design stage resulted in windows being adjusted to maximise the view of the river and beyond.
The design is also practical with plentiful built-in cupboards and both the main bathroom and the ensuite are good sizes. You can enjoy the views whilst sitting down in any of the main rooms and you can even enjoy the view whilst sitting in bed! In addition to being exceptionally large (around 1600 ft.²) this penthouse apartment has a garage and a separate car park space (as well as shared use of several guest car park spaces). It also has a very large basement store suitable for garden furniture, cycles, canoes/paddle boards, fishing equipment or simply extra space for household items.

“The Waterside” site is especially valuable. The 2 ½ acre site is owned* entirely by the owners of the apartments – there is no other landlord.
