A city home designed and built in the late 1950s will go up for sale for the first time next month - complete with its own private swimming pool.

The four-bedroom property on Upton Close, off Newmarket Road in Norwich, is for sale by auction with Brown&Co at a guide price of £700,000-£750,000.

The property was designed and built by the well-known architect John Winter, who was born in Norwich and lived in San Francisco and London where he was well-known for his modernist designs - including his own self-build house overlooking Highgate Cemetery.

21 Upton Close is typical of the 1950s - complete with 'avocado' bathroom suite - and offers well-arranged yet flexible accommodation over two floors.

It has an open-plan feel, particularly on the ground floor where the reception spaces flow into eachother and links with the single-storey extension to the garage.

The bedrooms are also well laid out and were altered some years ago, incorporating the fifth bedroom into the master room to create a dressing room and en suite bathroom.

The property also offers the potential for further extension - subject to planning - and has an open garden to the front, which leads on to the garage.
