About this property
DESCRIPTION No. 118 Newmarket Road, dating from 1906, is a classic Edwardian six-bedroom family house delightfully positioned within its attractive and well-tended walled gardens. The house, with its classic Edwardian elevations enjoys well arranged and well-proportioned accommodation on three floors with high ceiling rooms, paneling, wood boarded floors, fireplaces, and solid five-paneled doors. The house and associated grounds have been a much-loved family home and a rare offering, having not been on the market in over 18 years.
The entrance hall sets a delightful tone, with prominent wood boarded floors and paneling, leading through to the principal ground floor rooms. The sitting room, with its striking bay window and fireplace is a handsome space enjoying access out to the garden. The dining room spans across the front façade of the house with a fine bay window and fireplace being positioned next to the kitchen breakfast room with Aga and Rosemary Corian central island. The kitchen itself is wonderfully arranged, linking in with the utility rooms and access out to the garden is enjoyed via French doors. This space acts as a super focal point to the house, being an addition to the original structure cherishing the views over the walled gardens.
There are two staircases to the first floor, with the main staircase leading up to a large landing area. The bedroom accommodation is well arranged across the first and second floors, all being double rooms with natural light and fine views over the gardens. The principal bedroom with its south facing bay window enjoys a four-piece en-suite bathroom, with roll top bath and corner shower, and a dressing room flows onto the balcony providing an idyllic space to gaze over the grounds. The guest bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower. The second-floor hosts two further bedrooms and two very useful loft/storage areas.
The gardens and grounds are a wonderful feature of the house, being fully walled, and a rare component to a house being positioned so close to the centre of Norwich. The gardens offer a great deal of privacy being approached either from the house or at the side onto a large, paved terrace spanning across the rear façade. Being mainly lawned, the 120ft rear garden enjoys a range of well stocked herbaceous and deep flower borders with a further paved area framed by box hedging and screened by four delightful trees, in particular a fine Scots pine.
The 28'3 garage is tandem and benefits from power and light.
This is a wonderful opportunity to live on one of Norwich's finest roads within striking distance of Eaton village and Norwich itself.
