This stunning property on Albemarle Road in Norwich is for sale for offers in excess of £1.25m with Strutt & Parker.

Number 3, Albemarle Road is a delightful, spacious double fronted house on two floors situated on one of the most sought roads in Norwich.

The house was built in 1867 principally of Gault brick and retains much fine period detail including sash shuttered windows and

large well-proportioned rooms. There is a magnificent entrance hall, which runs through the centre of the house and off which all the principal rooms lead. These include a superb sitting room, kitchen with French doors to gardens as well as a morning room/snug and dining room together with a secondary kitchen/utility room and rear hall/boot room.

In 1907 further alterations and additions were made to the house and these were believed to have been designed by the renowned Norwich architect, Edward Boardman. These include the remodelling of the main staircase lit by a most attractive Venetian window with a landing and fine views overlooking the garden to the south.

The house has been in the ownership of only four families since it was built in 1867, the Selwyns, then the Jewsons who acquired the house in 1907 and the Eatons who acquired the house in 1952. Members of both the Jewson and Eaton family have been past Lord Mayors of Norwich.
