Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Eastwood is situated off the quiet Folgate Lane in the sought after residential locality of Old Costessey, to the west of the city. Nearby there is a good range of shops with all everyday essentials available, both in Costessey and Drayton. Norwich city centre is approximately 4 miles to the east of the house. This cathedral city and regional centre of East Anglia is renowned for its wide range of shopping, good private and state education, leisure centres and transport links with a main line service to London Liverpool Street ( approximate journey time of 1 hour 50 minutes) and an expanding international airport.

The house is close to the water meadows adjoining the River Wensum which provide plenty of rural walks. There are two golf clubs nearby at Costessey Park and the Wensum Valley Country Club.


Eastwood is a substantial family home dating from the 1920's, with later additions and alterations. Since acquiring the property the current owners have undertaken a thorough programme of refurbishment and added a 2 storey extension, completed in 2009.

All rooms are well proportioned with good ceiling height, with large windows providing plenty of natural light on both the ground and first floor. A fabulous kitchen/breakfast room was created in the extension, fitted with a bespoke Kestrel kitchen with central island, larder, and a large dining area. This is accessed from the hall which also leads to the spacious sitting room, a dining room with bay window with double doors out to the terrace, and to the study. From the kitchen a boot room links the main house to the conservatory, which has under floor heating, through to a large games room.

Stairs lead to the first floor, with a light and airy gallery. The bedrooms are all double rooms, with a particularly spacious master bedroom with adjoining bath/shower room and dressing room. There are a further 3 bedrooms and family bathroom, with 2 of the bedrooms enjoying adjoining shower rooms. Above the games room are two studio rooms that can be used as further guest accommodation, work from home or similar.
The house is in good order through out, with views of the gardens from most rooms.

Eastwood is approached from the east through electric wrought iron gates onto a gravelled turning and parking area, that links the house with the double garage. The drive continues along the western boundary through gates and up to a further outbuilding at the top of the gardens.

The gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of the property, with it rare to find a house so close to Norwich, and in setting it enjoys, with 1 acre (est). The majority of the grounds stretch away from the house to the west, gently rising to woodland. A substantial terrace, accessed from the conservatory and the dining room, provides an outdoor seating area, with steps up to an area of lawn and to the swimming pool. The pool is solar heated, with changing rooms with shower located in the main house, with a door leading directly to the pool area. The garden continues up a set of steps, with herbaceous borders either side, to a further lawn which leads into the woodland and to a walk leading through shrubberies. A paved pathway is to the east of the house, continuing round to the north with flowerbeds on either side.

To the west of the garden is a large timber clad outbuilding, providing two large storage rooms. This is in addition to the double garage.

Mains water, electricity, drainage and gas. Gas fired central heating.
