The 19th century home with a striking wisteria clad turret would be at home in the middle of the countryside, but is instead located in Norwich - just recently named one of the best places to live in the UK.

Among its features, 211 Unthank Road, known as Steeple Court, has an entrance hall, a dining room, a family room - which functions as a home cinema - and a master bedroom with its own ensuite and dressing room.

Perhaps the most striking feature of the property, which has a guide price of £1,595,000, is a Victorian style garden room with glass windows that let in an abundance of natural light.

Ian Burnaby-Parsons of Strutt & Parker said: “This impressive city townhouse, isn't just 'the house with the wisteria clad turret', but a fabulous family home with excellent accommodation throughout and one of the most outstanding conservatory garden rooms I've ever seen.

“There's a lovely blend of traditional formal reception rooms to the front and light contemporary open plan family rooms to the back, a garden that just keeps going, and a full size snooker room on the top floor.”
