5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Proving to be the perfect Norfolk base while the current owners have been living overseas, 74 Wroxham Road is easily maintained and in a convenient location within Norwich.
The versatile accommodation has enabled friends and family to use the property and the excellent entertaining space is wonderful for socialising.
At first glance the property appears to be a traditional 1930s detached home, however, the substantial rear extension has absolutely transformed the accommodation. The sociable kitchen/dining area connects with the family room and is at once cosy on a winter's evening and the perfect party venue in summer with bi-folding doors opening out to a substantial terrace.
The two en-suite double bedrooms on the ground floor give the home the utmost versatility and if needs changed then the house could seamlessly accommodate.
Whilst the rear of the property is all about social interaction the original sitting room at the front gives a calm and separate space to relax. The property is a perfect blend of how to transform a period house with traditional separate rooms into a highly flexible modern home incorporating open-plan living too.
With entertaining a priority, whilst needing little upkeep during the owners' time away, the rear garden has been cleverly landscaped to incorporate a brilliant terrace for alfresco dining and lower terraces for relaxed seating together with an established garden area.
Convenience was very important and being located in Sprowston with its Tesco Superstore and retail park a stone's throw away, plus easy access to the city and the Broadland Northway the property has so many amenities on the doorstep.
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.
