DESCRIPTION The property is believed to have been built in 1857 and occupied by John Berney Ladbrooke who was a member of the celebrated Norwich School of artists. Some of the material from St Michael's Chapel was used in the landscaping of the lower garden area and also in the arch leading to a pathway to St Leonards Road.

The house offers accommodation on three floors with three reception rooms, four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and two further bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has been used as a hobby room. A gas fired central heating system to radiators provides heating to the ground and first floors.

The garage block which once provided stabling and storage includes two garages on either side of a covered walkway to the rear garden.

Only by inspection can this fine Period home and its special location be fully appreciated and therefore viewing is highly recommended.

LOCATION The house is situated to the east of the city in a conservation area and around three quarters of a mile from Norwich Castle in the city centre as the crow flies. Amenities in the local area include shops, public houses, a bakery and there is easy access from this area to Norwich Rail Station and Mousehold Heath. There is a particularly pleasant walk from this area by Riverside and through the grounds of Norwich Cathedral to the city centre.

DIRECTIONS From Riverside on the inner ring road, proceed up Gas Hill and turn left at the top into the northernmost part of St Leonards Road. Follow the road along and continue past the gate to 113 and take the next turning on the left. The driveway for the property will be found on the left hand side in front of the garages and the gate to the rear of the property is between the garages.
