About this property

Detailed Description

The property was built in the 16th century and is a Grade II listed building comprising a basement, large open plan ground floor together with an attractive two bedroom first floor flat.

Formerly an inn, the ground floor was last used for retail with a small shop at the front that leads through to a larger rear retail area. This is Use Class E and can now therefore be used for the full range of commercial and business uses without the need to obtain planning permission. This could include offices, financial services, leisure, health or a restaurant.

The flat is accessed from the side of the property sharing only a small area with the ground floor, meaning that both areas can be used separately.

The flat has two large bedrooms (one could possibly be further divided). It has attractive period features including fireplaces (blocked), wooden floorboards and exposed wall and roof timbers.

Outside is a small garden although both the side alleyways are public highways.


Situated on the river Wensum Norwich is approximately 100 miles northeast of London and only 20 miles from the Norfolk Coast.

The property is located within the ever-popular St Benedicts Street, part of Norwich Lanes, an area renowned for its culture, and mix of uses including retail, residential and leisure. It is also a short walk from Norwich City Centre.
