ORMESBY Ormesby St Michael is a small village at the furthest edge of the unique Trinity Broads, situated between Ormesby Broad to the north and Ormesby Little Broad to the south, both part of the Trinity Broads. The Trinity Broads are a series of five land-locked Broads which cover an area of 0.64sq m (1.7km2) around the villages of Filby, Rollesby and Ormesby. A shallow, un-navigable tributary of the River Bure called Muck Fleet is their only link to the main river system, so they remain virtually undisturbed and were designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1998. Sailing, boating and fishing are allowed on these Broads but are carefully regulated as they are areas rich in birdlife and natural beauty. Ormesby St Margaret and Scratby that are nearby offer local shops, schools and a doctor's surgery. The coastline is approximately 2.5 miles away and The Cathedral City of Norwich is approximately 20 miles to the west and offers a wide range of day to day shopping, leisure and cultural facilities as well as a min line railway station serving London Liverpool Street. To the north of the city there is Norwich International airport.

SERVICES CONNECTED Oil fired central heating, mains electricity and water, septic tank with drainage to public sewer.

"Estate agents often get a pretty bad press, yet a good one can really help sell your house as I’ve recently experienced. We chose Sowerbys because of their professionalism when compared to others we looked at. It was a good choice - with Sowerbys efficiency and good presentation of our property, we sold it quickly, that’s inevitable when you think that’s a decent fee for something sold so quickly, but the presentation of our property and the professionalism of the viewings really helped. However our story didn’t end there as our buyer pulled out for personal reasons. This when you need a good agent. Sowerbys reacted quickly and with understanding of our disappointment, and got back on with the job of re-marketing the property without any fuss. This time it took longer, we were in a chain, and quite frankly the English system for selling property is broken, ours took three and a half months to exchange, and until you’ve exchanged, your sale can be gone within a heartbeat, it is not secure. This is where you need a good agent, one that will work with other agents, solicitors, buyers and sellers to keep things moving, keep everyone informed and advise you along the way. I would recommend Sowerbys without hesitation and in particular would give recognition to Peter Scott and Alison Carter at the Hunstanton office. In our experience the solicitors in our chain were not at all responsive and were poor at organising anything but the relationship between themselves and their client, and this is not enough when you’re in a chain, you need someone who will manage, coordinate and cajole across everyone across the chain, Alison Carter at Sowerbys was excellent at taking on this coordination and making things happen. It’s very difficult to know who your buyer is and how complex a chain is, until your stuck within it, and it only takes one poor solicitor or one difficult buyer and the whole lot can come crashing down without someone there to manage it through – remember that when you choose your estate agent!"
