Auction Property

42 Alford Grove, Norwich, Norfolk, NR7 8XB

Sold for £232,000


No. 42 Alford Grove is a detached double fronted house, built probably in the 1920's and having mainly rendered external elevations under a pitched pantiled roof with a two storey rendered extension to the rear with a flat felted roof. The residence has the benefit of UPVC double glazed replacement windows and doors together with gas fired central heating (thermostatically controlled radiators). The dwelling would, however, now benefit from a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment and updating, together with total redecoration. The existing accommodation includes entrance porch, entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen and bathroom with old three-piece suite on the ground floor, together with landing, three bedrooms and separate WC with wash basin on the first floor. Outside, a somewhat restricted driveway adjoining the house affords access to an old timber and block shed and extensive rear garden area (requiring attention). The rear garden extends to a total depth of approximately 39.92m (131ft). There is a World War II former air raid shelter beyond the rear of the house. There is further scope to re-model the existing accommodation or, possibly extend the building, subject to planning. Interested parties are advised to make the necessary enquiries to the planning department of Broadland District Council.


The property is located in this very popular residential area on the northern side of the outer ring road. It is within easy reach of local amenities, shops and schools, and just over 2 miles from Norwich city centre.


From Tombland, proceed to Wensum Street and Magdalen Street. At the traffic lights proceed towards Sprowston Road to the ring road. At the island, turn right into Mousehold Lane and take the first turning left into Alford Grove. The house will be found on the right hand side.
