A hidden gem in a prime location.

If you’re searching for a spacious family home in a great location close to city life, but still want to feel like you can get away from it all, this detached four-bedroom property just off Yarmouth Road on the outskirts of Norwich could be exactly what you’re looking for.

Originally constructed in 1994 as part of a small development in this popular area of Norwich, this home has been extended and improved by the current owners to offer spacious and flexible split-level accommodation which really makes the most of its private location. 

With gated access at the end of a shared driveway, the property has ample off-street parking for several cars, and a double-width cart shed which provides covered parking for two more vehicles. 

The sheltered front garden is landscaped with mature ornamental bay trees, and an entrance porch leads through to a wide hallway which runs centrally through the property, with space for informal seating to take advantage of the views down into the high-ceilinged living room beyond. 

Two bedrooms and a bathroom can be found towards the front of the ground floor, whilst the ground floor living accommodation is to the rear of the property, to maximise the views of the large south-facing gardens. The spacious living room, with oak floors and a wood burner, is a relaxing haven all year round, and leads on to a glazed conservatory with automated roof vent, underfloor heating, and direct access to a paved terrace which is bathed in day-long sun.

The kitchen / dining room has been recently re-fitted by the current owners to include sleek contemporary units and solid wood worktops, housing a range of integrated Neff appliances and offers plenty of space for dining with ample room for a table that seats six in comfort. A separate utility room provides useful storage and laundry space, whilst a former garage has been converted into a bright, dual aspect office space, offering the perfect location to work from home.

On the first floor of the property, there are two double bedrooms, each with a well-appointed en-suite shower room. The principal bedroom is to the rear of the property, again to make the most of those views, and this already-generous room appears larger thanks to the inclusion of a wall of mirrored wardrobes which provide plenty of storage.

We’ve mentioned the gardens a couple of times already, and with good reason. The plot is approximately 1/3 acre (stms) and slopes gently downhill away from the house as it leads to established trees at the end of the garden. Enclosed by mature hedging, and containing apple trees, abundantly-stocked borders and a spacious lawn, this private oasis also includes the three-level paved terrace accessible from the conservatory and kitchen, as well as a fabulous summer house which is currently used as an outdoor sitting room, perfect for large gatherings. With mature woodland and the River Yare beyond the gardens, this home has a fantastic countryside feel that is rare to find in a property so close to the city centre.

And the location is exceptional. Approximately a five-minute walk from the chic riverside amenities on the banks of the Yare at Thorpe St. Andrew, close to supermarkets, primary and secondary schools, and with frequent bus services into Norwich City Centre, this home has almost everything you could wish for on the doorstep. If you’re determined to venture further afield, there’s easy access to the nearby A47, whilst the wide skies and expansive beaches of the Norfolk Coast are only 40 minutes away by car. 

Individual properties like this are highly sought-after, and this home is sure to prove popular with buyers who appreciate its flexible accommodation, high standards of finish, and enviable location. Early viewing is highly recommended, and is available exclusively through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists.
