Colney Lane, Cringleford, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4

££700,000 Guide

4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow For Sale

It is all about location and opportunity. This wonderful property offers great accommodation with enormous potential to enhance further if required. Built in the 1920's, there is evidence of the period with high ceilings and signature bay windows. Built in 1924 to be exact, it was a classic square shaped 20's bungalow with porch veranda and called 'The Nook'. The flat roof extension was added around the 1950's which gave it the present layout. Being one of the earliest properties to be built at the start of Colney Lane means it still retains its waterside plot next to 'The Cut' at the end of the right-of-way leading out of the back garden down to the river.

The well-balanced accommodation is versatile and the rooms can all be used for a number of different purposes. The property is currently arranged to provide four bedrooms and two reception rooms as well as the kitchen.

There are superb views of the garden and the property is nicely tucked away from the road. If it's pottering around outside you enjoy, the great outbuildings work really well as a workshop, separate tool shed and garden store, not forgetting to mention the garage. The garden is a real delight. The front provides parking as well as a mature well-maintained garden with established hedging. The rear garden is perfect for relaxing or entertaining with its raised terrace, sweeping lawn, established trees and hedging, as well as a secret path that takes you down to the River Yare.

CRINGLEFORD The village of Cringleford is located approximately 4 miles from the centre of Norwich and has excellent road links to the A11. Local amenities include shops, a Waitrose, schools, pubs and sporting clubs. Cringleford Primary School has superb facilities and high standards of teaching (the last OFSTED report rated the school as Good). Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is located in Cringleford and the village also has a medical practice.

Norwich 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.

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 merchants' 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 its selection of grand houses, and the 'Golden Triangle' neighbourhood is a favourite with families. There is 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.

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.
