Fine views across Norwich will be on offer when one of the city centre's most imaginative blends of new-build and redevelopment housing is officially launched next weekend.

Ketts Court, perched above but set back from St Stephen's roundabout, is an intriguing development of 24 homes by Elderhart Ltd, across the road from the new Chapelfield shopping centre.

Buyers have the choice of mainly one and two-bed contemporary apartments - all with access to a roof garden - or 10 loft-style one and two-bed units in a handsome late Victorian red brick depository.

The Norman and Beard depository was built in 1898 at St Stephen's Gate and forms an eye-catching portion of the prime site development.

It was originally used for the building of church and chamber organs, and the apartments inside are flooded with natural light from the large

windows.

Selling agent Paul Dunnett, partner with Watsons Residential, recently successfully launched the first phase of apartments at the Chapelfield development and is equally excited by this nearby but very different project.

“The specification is high and some of the views outstanding,” he tells me. “The first open weekend for pre-registered applicants is this Saturday and Sunday, and we will then be fully open from the following weekend, between 10am-4pm on Saturday and Sunday.” Watsons at Bank Plain has more details.

Prices start at £125,000 for a one-bed unit, without parking, to around £245,000 for the largest two-bed apartment.

Some of the new-build and depository apartments are duplexes.

Room sizes are generous, and all units have fully fitted kitchens with appliances and ceramic floor tiling or feature oak flooring.

Bathrooms and shower rooms come with white sanitaryware, there is electrical downlighting to main areas, plentiful TV and telephone points, mains smoke detectors, electric heating, ash-faced front and internal doors, and audio-entry security phone system.The secluded communal rooftop garden is expected to prove a hit with residents for outside eating, entertaining or relaxing.
