The property dates back to 1920 and was built in an Arts and Crafts style. It is the first time the property has come on to the open market in more than 25 years and, although it has been extensively renovated in recent years, it still offers a wealth of distinctive period features.

Having been carefully extended, the kitchen/dining room is very much the focal point of the home. It has floor-to-ceiling sliding doors at the rear, which lead out on to a terrace, and a south-facing, open-plan living space.

The property also offers further potential, with the option to extend into the attic. Structural drawings have been drawn up to create two additional bedrooms and a further bathroom.

Brown & Co describe the grounds as a "major feature" of the property, as great care and attention has been taken by the current owners to create charming setting – in fact, at the back of the house, it's easy to forget that the property is situated within walking distance of Norwich city centre.
