Gunton Lodge Ref: BUP

Enjoying over 100ft of water frontage, with a private mooring and slipway, Gunton Lodge is one of the premier detached period houses built along Oulton Broad. A large sunny south-facing garden leads to the water’s edge, accessing a wealth of family watersports activity on the enclosed waters of the broad. A rowing boat can be made available for guests’ use by prior arrangement. Alternatively, simply relax and enjoy stunning views across the broad and surrounding countryside from the house, the lawn or the summer house by the water’s edge. The master bedroom has French doors leading onto a large decked balcony with stair access up to the turret room – a fabulous spot for enjoying the often spectacular sunsets!
