The Leather House, St. Georges Street, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3

££300,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Apartment For Sale

When the vendors were looking for a city base more than 20 years ago, they wanted something both with character in terms of the building and also in area. They were immediately drawn to Colegate for its historical charm but also the industrial shoe making past of Norwich.

The Leather House is an iconic and landmark building in Norwich which retains enormous character whilst having been converted into spacious apartments.

The building has a real city vibe to it now with the prestigious Last restaurant and wine bar on the ground floor.

The property is so convenient for all city amenities with restaurants, cafes and shops on the doorstep, but also the river allowing lovely walks.

Because Flat 4 is elevated, it enjoys a wonderful vista over the rooftops to Norwich Cathedral. It gifts the feeling of city living yet also being, physically and metaphorically, above it all. Our vendors have loved the sitting room, taking in this view. The room also has its original column paying homage to the past guise of the building.

In the 22 years our clients have been here, they have seen the city change and shops come and go but Flat 4 has always given them a solid base and they have loved having everything on the doorstep.

Our clients have recently redecorated the apartment but it could still offer further potential for a new buyer to personalise and inject their own character into the space.

NORWICH This ancient city has been home to writers, radicals and fiercely independent spirits for over a thousand years, and today continues in its legacy as an enclave of culture and creativity. It's perfectly preserved medieval streets are home to a thriving community of small businesses, a vibrant food scene and an established arts culture. It is also a gateway to a county that continues to inspire people with its unspoilt landscapes, open spaces and big skies.

Named as one of the best places to live in 2021, Norwich lies approximately 20 miles from the coast at the confluence of the River Yare and the River Wensum, the latter still bending its way through the heart of the city. In the 11th Century, Norwich was the second largest city in the country, and today is still the UK's most complete medieval city. Strolling through the historic cobbled streets of Elm Hill, whatever the season, the Tudor architecture retains its character and beauty. Laced with merchant's houses, thatching, individual homes, speciality shops and small cafes, you'll be led toward the 1,000-year-old Norwich Cathedral.
To the north of the city the University of East Anglia is a remarkable example of brutalist architecture, and the campus is also home to the Sainsbury centre, a permanent collection of modern and ethnographic art, gifted by the Sainsbury family.

Property types in Norwich are incredibly diverse, from city-centre Victorian properties, converted mills and barns, townhouses and luxury new-builds. Central to the city, Newmarket Road is noted for it's selection of grand houses, and the 'Golden Triangle' neighbourhood is a favourite with families. There are also an array of beautiful rural villages within a short drive, notably Stoke Holy Cross to the south, Surlingham to the east, or Bawburgh to the west, where larger rural properties and small estates are often brought to market.

When the bright lights call, trains to Liverpool Street take just 90 minutes, and the city's airport flies to a number of UK destinations, as well as direct to Amsterdam.

This is a city that reveals itself the longer you stay - a city to fall in love with - a city to be a part of.
