Ten minutes from the city centre lies this detached, period property with an abundance of classical features.
Within walking distance of Norwich city centre sits the impressive detached family home of 21, Bracondale — a six-bedroom property currently on the market with Jackson-Stops at a guide price of £995,000.
Boasting some 3,000sq ft of living space in a city setting, the property was originally built in about 1860, but has been extended and renovated over the years to create spacious and flexible family living spaces.
Plenty of fine period detailing remains, mostly of a Classical nature, such as the marble fireplace and Corinthian columns in the drawing room. The high ceilings create open, well proportioned rooms and allow ample light to pour in through the sash windows.
The accommodation spans four floors, starting from a two-room cellar in the basement, through the ground floor which hosts the living/kitchen/dining/garden rooms, then moving upstairs where the master suite and bedrooms are found. Over the top floor is the remaining bedroom with either an additional bedroom or a spacious study/ siting area.
Outside, the property benefits from a small walled garden area that is mostly lawn, but features a decked area with its own heater, power socket and light. An open south-facing garden to the front includes plenty of space to eat and entertain.
