Five properties once owned by the Ministry of Defence have come up for sale in Sprowston near Norwich.

The properties were once used by the MoD to accommodate service families but are no longer needed.

They have been refurbished by Annington, which was set up in 1996 with the purchase of 57,434 homes from the MoD.

Some of these have been leased back, making Annington one of the largest landlords in the UK, but many have been refurbished and then sold or put up for sale on the open market.

Since 2019, the MoD has committed to releasing a further 3,500 homes to Annington over the next seven years.

It is thought that the new releases, which include two and three-bedroom properties and are being marketed by William H Brown, will attract younger buyers.

Claire Wilson, branch manager at William H Brown, said: "This is an up-and-coming area for young buyers to take advantage of accessible homeownership while still benefitting from living close to local primary and secondary schools, as well as local shops, green space and quick commuter links."
