About this property
DESCRIPTION This delightful family home dates back about 45 years and has not come to the market since it was built for the vendors. In many ways the property is ahead of its time and is constructed of brick with a pitched main roof having a number of elevations, occupying a good plot of land in Yare Valley Drive with some privacy.
The accommodation works well and there is plenty of space, particularly on the ground floor. There is an open plan entrance hall area which provides access to most of the ground floor rooms, including a super sitting room with adjoining snooker/family room approached via double doors and creating a great deal of space. In addition there is a dining room which could easily be incorporated into the kitchen. The main bedroom is on the ground floor, together with two studies and there is also a more recent conservatory. The integral garage provides space for two vehicles.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor, with a large roof space over the garage, approached via bedroom 3 and suitable for a number of purposes and is currently used for general storage.
The property benefits from a lift system and the whole will be of great interest to a wide variety of buyers looking to acquire a first class residence with scope for some improvement, but suitable and ready for immediate occupation.
Outside, the grounds are more than adequate for a property of this size and type. The house is approached from the road with a drive leading up to the front of the property and the garage area. There is plenty of hard standing for vehicles here.
The grounds have been well landscaped over many years, being mainly laid to lawn with flower borders and there are a number of specimen trees. The boundaries are easily defined and a particular feature is the terrace adjoining the sitting room area with views of the garden running up to the summer house, which is included in the sale.
Services: Mains water, electricity and drainage are connected to the property. No mains gas connected although we understand it is available in Yare Valley Drive.
LOCATION Yare Valley Drive is situated at the bottom of Gurney Lane, itself off Colney Lane in Cringleford on the south-western perimeter of Norwich.
There is easy access to local shopping and transport facilities in nearby Eaton Village, with easy access to the A11 trunk road as well. Access to the centre of Norwich is good via the A11 and the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital is within a mile, although there is a great deal of privacy in Yare Valley Drive and this is an excellent opportunity to live tucked away close to the marshes where there are wonderful walks through to Eaton Village and across to the University of East Anglia with the broad there and plenty of wildlife.
DIRECTIONS Proceed out of Norwich on Newmarket Road and branch left into Eaton Village. Go over the traffic lights and continue over Cringleford bridge. Continue along the road and turn right into Colney Lane, go over the flyover and proceed along the road, turning right into Gurney Lane. Continue to the bottom here and the road winds round to the left and on reaching Yare Valley Drive continue on along the road and turn left into the drive leading up to the house.
