DESCRIPTION No. 22 Christchurch Road comprises a most attractive semi-detached Victorian family home beautifully positioned on one of Norwich's finest roads.

The house enjoys wonderful proportions over four magnificent floors. The Victorian front door opens into a delightful entrance hall, giving access to all principal rooms which retain the original cornices.
