About the Owner

I am now retired and have owned the boathouse since 1997. My wife and I have rebuilt the house since we took over from my mother in 1997. I have been coming to the boathouse since I was 6 months old and it then belonged to my Grandfather and Grandmother. I was taught to sail at the Boathouse in a dingy given to me by my Uncle who built the boat for my cousin, we still have her in the shed at the house. One of my other cousins now has the boathouse next door. We all love the house and think it is very special and I hope you come and experiance it for yourself.

From the Owner

I have owned the property since 1997 when it was handed down, my mother inherited the house in 1968 from her father who built the house in 1922 so it has been in the family since first being built. The house is very special and holds thousands of happy memories. I was taught to sail on the Broad in the early 1960's and my children were taught to sail in the same way, my cousin next door still has the speed boat built for my Grandfather and I still have the dingy built by my uncle we all learnt to sail in.

From the Owner

The house has a fantastic view up onto the Inner Broad and the sun rises and sunsets are second to none. The peace and quiet and tranquility of the Boathouse is very very special and have never come across anyone who hasnt come to love the place after spending a few hours in the house. I hope you get to experience its appeal.
