The property on Carrow Road, Norwich, was originally a stationmaster’s house but has been a private family residence since 1953. It is to be sold with vacant possession at a livestreamed auction taking place on February 6 with William H Brown Auctions, in association with Barnard Marcus Auctions, at a guide price of £325,000.

The four/five-bedroom home requires modernisation throughout and there is potential to extend to the side and rear, or it could even be completely converted into multiple properties, subject to the relevant permissions being acquired.

The front porch opens into a large hallway providing access to two reception rooms with fireplaces and a kitchen on the ground floor.

One central set of stairs leads down into the large basement, which currently includes useful cellar and storage areas and a snug with outside access, while another takes you up to the first floor. Four bedrooms are arranged around the landing, two of which have fireplaces. They are served by a family bathroom.

An attic room with slanted ceiling on the second floor has the potential to be converted into a further two bedrooms, or it could be used as an additional reception area for quiet cosy evenings or teenagers looking for their own entertainment space.

Outside, there is off-road parking for multiple vehicles, two garages and a large workshop. The rear garden is of a good size, and could be an excellent outdoor space with some TLC.

Football fans will be pleased to hear that the property is located just a few minutes’ walk from Carrow Road Stadium, and Norwich’s train station and city centre are approximately 10-15 minutes’ walk away.
