Impressive family home in need of updating.
17 Ipswich Road is an imposing Edwardian house, enjoying a private position within the sought after Golden Triangle of Norwich, complete with off street parking, garaging, and mature gardens and grounds of about 0.46 of an acre.
The house is now in need of updating throughout and presents a wonderful and rare opportunity to customise and create a substantial city home. There are elegant rooms, starting with a striking entrance/staircase hall leading to all principal reception rooms. Of particular note is the panelled drawing room, triple aspect with fireplace, a comfortable sitting room with access to the gardens and a dining room with access out to the south facing veranda. Other useful rooms include a pantry, utility, basic kitchen and cellar.
The bedrooms are all spacious double bedrooms, with four bedrooms on the first floor including the master bedroom with a particularly large bathroom. There is a further bathroom, separate WC and airing cupboard. A further flight of stairs leads to the second floor with sitting room, bedroom and kitchenette.
The house enjoys detail typical of the period with stained glass, fireplaces, fine room proportions, generous ceiling height and plenty of natural light.
The property is set back from the Ipswich Road, behind large yew trees and a flint wall with a shingle drive through wooden pillars to a parking and turning area adjoining the house and garage. The predominantly lawned gardens sweep round from
east to south with well-stocked herbaceous beds, fine mature trees including mulberry and oak, an assortment of shrubs, a terraced area adjoining the house and attractive veranda. To the north of the house is a shingled drive leading to the large garage and outhouse.
The gardens retain structure but would benefit from cutting back and further landscaping if required.

A wonderfully rare opportunity that must be one of the few remaining unmodernised houses of this scale in the golden triangle.Ben Rivett
