About this property

DESCRIPTION Seago House, No.13 Christchurch Road is a delightful, attached Edwardian house which has a Dutch hand-made brick front elevation, with the remainder of red brick, under pantile roof. Built in 1904 with later 1933 additions, the house is wonderfully positioned on one of the finest residential roads within striking distance to the centre of Norwich.

Seago House carries a fascinating history being the home of Edward Seago, the artist. Mr Seago was born in 1910 and lived in the property until 1924; the house is mentioned in the first page of his biography under the chapter, 'The Colours are Mixed'.

The property enjoys excellent proportions over three floors being approached from the front via a 1930's original front door into the main reception hall. The hall enjoys access to the principal ground floor rooms. Of particular note, is the drawing room with a lovely bay window which benefits from oak parquet flooring, fine ornate ceiling works and an open fireplace. The kitchen breakfast room benefits from a Stanley range and a range of wall and base units together with integrated appliances and a pantry. There is a delightful courtyard garden accessed from the kitchen. Further ground floor rooms include a walnut panelled dining room with oak parquet flooring, cloakroom/boot room, and a utility room.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom accessed off an impressive landing area. The principal bedroom enjoys a dressing area together with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. The three remaining bedrooms are large double rooms benefiting from delightful views over the grounds whilst being facilitated by a useful shower room. Two of the bedrooms benefit from sinks and fitted wardrobes.

The second-floor landing offers access to a further double bedroom together with storage in the eaves.

Seago House is approached from Christchurch Road into a private driveway leading up to the single garage, there is parking available for several vehicles. The house is well set back from the road and enjoys complete privacy being screened via a number of fine trees positioned along the boundary. A side access flows into the courtyard garden which acts as an area for potted plants and provides direct access into the rear garden.

The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and extend to 0.35 acres (stms) being segregated by attractive hedging positioned centrally within the garden. There are a very good range of mature shrubs, fruit and specimen trees, and flower borders with the garden being fully enclosed by further hedging. Two garden sheds and a greenhouse will be remaining with the property and there is a useful study accessed from the garden and attached to the rear of the property.

The garden room is a wonderful addition to Seago House constructed in 2013 of brick elevations under a double glazed glass roof. This wonderful space acts as a pleasant space to work whilst overlooking the grounds. There is electricity and wall mounted speakers.
