Chapel Field North, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2

££1,500,000 Guide

5 Bedroom Town House For Sale

As cities evolve everyone knows space is at a premium and often gardens disappear as buildings spring up. It is therefore rare to find a substantial and complete period house that still retains its superb walled garden. When the owners first saw Chapel Field House in 1997, they knew immediately just how special it was.

The garden has provided so much pleasure over the years and the brick summerhouse, attached to the wall and looking back to the house, is one of the owner's favourite places to be. They also love the outlook from the landing with an uninterrupted view of the church in St Giles.

Chapel Field House is afforded great views from both sides, with the first floor balcony overlooking Chapel Field Gardens. You can really step back in time an imagine what it would have been like in the early 19th Century with the gentry promenading.

The house exudes elegance from the moment you enter with the central hall and graceful sweeping Georgian staircase beyond. The accommodation is superbly proportioned with a wealth of period features and a substantial lower ground floor, which offers potential subject to Listed Building Consent.

The owners have loved the proximity to all city amenities with restaurants and the Theatre Royal on the doorstep. With so many trees in Chapel Field Gardens the house has a wonderful green setting, whilst located in the heart of the city.

The upper floors are very versatile and on the first floor the original drawing room could be reinstated for its intended purpose or alternatively a grand principal bedroom.

Opportunities to acquire properties like Chapel Field House are extremely rare and for those seeking a piece of unspoilt history with the potential to personalise it provides an extremely special opportunity.



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 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, 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.
