Auction Property

1 Town Close Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 2NB

Sold for £700,000


A rare opportunity to acquire an outstanding period property, being Listed Grade II as a house of architectural and historic interest and situated in the prestigious Town Close Estate within easy reach of Norwich. No. 1 Town Close Road is a substantial semi-detached property with delightful grounds and set well back from the road, retaining a great deal of the original charm of the property. The accommodation is well arranged over three floors and includes entrance hall, sitting room, dining/family room, kitchen/breakfast room (with hatch to cellar which houses the gas fired boiler) and utility room on the ground floor, landing, three bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor, with a study/landing area and bedroom on the second floor. The property is approached from the road via a drive leading up to the front and there is hard standing for a number of vehicles to the front and side of the house. The rear garden is laid to lawn with flower borders and hedging on three sides and there is a dilapated shed with access down a loke at the far end of the garden, leading back to Ipswich and Newmarket Roads. The property benefits from mains water, electricity, gas and drainage and has gas fired central heating. It is in reasonable condition but tired and any buyer may want to re-arrange the accommodation to a certain extent, install new kitchen and bathroom equipment and overhaul the wiring and central heating systems. There is scope to extend to the rear, subject to obtaining the necessary planning and listed building consents.


Town Close Road is situated between Newmarket Road and Ipswich Road and is within walking distance of the centre of the city of Norwich and close to the inner link road. There are excellent local shopping and transport facilities in Unthank Road and in nearby Eaton Village as well. There are local private and public schools within walking distance and Norwich City College is close by, with easy access to the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. Much of the charm of the property rests with the unspoilt surroundings. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a first class property in a delightful residential area.

This property will be sold subject to a number of restrictive covenants, full details of which will be available in the legal pack.
