A most attractive detached Victorian house requiring sympathetic updating and improvement in a sought after location to the north of Norwich.
Location This property is ideally located on the north side of Norwich for easy access to the outer ring road just under half a mile and the soon to be completed northern distributor road via the B1150 which takes you to North Walsham some 14.5 miles and the delightful North Norfolk coastal town of Cromer some 22.5 miles. Walking towards the city, Anglia Square is just under three quarters of a mile and the centre of Norwich 1.5 miles if walking. The property is directly opposite Sewell Park College and there is schooling within the locality to 18 years of age. There is also the Sewell Barn Theatre well known for its local productions.
Norwich is a thriving provincial capital recognised as one of the countries top shopping destinations with a daily market, two shopping malls and a wealth of both small independent shops and national chains together with a variety of restaurants, theatres, cinemas and places of historical interest. The area is also well served by local bus services.
Description We imagine the façade of this most attractive Victorian house is pretty much as it was when it was built with its sash windows, attractive door case, solid front door and boot scrapper. Internally the property does require sympathetic updating and improvement but this is a fantastic opportunity for someone to impose their own style on the well proportioned and gas centrally heating accommodation which still retains a good number of period features. A sitting room and dining room stand either side of the reception hall where access can be gained to a good size cellar. The kitchen is at the rear of the house with a utility and shower and cloakroom off plus a good size bright and airy garden room with uPVC double glazed windows and French doors leading to the garden. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles plus a good size family bathroom.
The property stands on the corner of Constitution Hill and Ash Grove on a good size plot measuring 98′ long and 65′ wide. This at the present time includes an extensive area of hard standing, part of which would make a fantastic addition to the rear garden and there is plenty of scope to build garaging adjacent to the house (subject of course to any necessary local authority approvals), perhaps taking down the car port between the house and small garage, creating a larger garden and utilising the garage for storage or perhaps opening up to create a covered outside entertaining area.
The period style, location and opportunity will in our opinion generate a good level of interest and early viewing is therefore strongly recommended by the sole selling agents.
