Full description

3 Albemarle Road is a delightful spacious
double fronted house on two floors situated
on one of the most sought after roads in Norwich.

The house was built in 1867 of principally gault brick with a pantile roof and the property retains much fine period detail including sash shuttered windows and large well- proportioned rooms. There is a magnificent entrance hall, which runs through the centre of the house and off which all the principal rooms lead. These include a superb sitting room, kitchen with French doors to gardens as well as a morning room/snug and dining room together with a secondary kitchen/utility room and rear hall/boot room.

In 1907 further alterations and additions were made to the house and these were believed to have been designed by the renowned Norwich architect, Edward Boardman. These include the remodelling of the main staircase lit by a most attractive Venetian window with a landing and fine views overlooking the garden to the south. At the same time, a spacious central first floor landing was created off which all the bedrooms and bathrooms lead.

The house has been in the ownership of only 4 families since it was built in 1867, the Selwyns, then the Jewsons who acquired the house in 1907 and the Eatons who acquired the house in 1952. Mr T C Eaton and his family moved into the house in 1963. Members of both the Jewson and Eaton family have been past Lord Mayors of Norwich.

The vendor is in the process of completing a
new dwelling for her own occupation next door
which has been specially designed to enhance
the privacy of the main house with a beautiful
brick feature garden wall.

3 Albemarle Road is one of the most sought after addresses in Norwich being located in between the Newmarket and Unthank Road, and adjacent to the renowned private school, The Norwich High School for Girls.

About 300 yards to the south east located off the
Newmarket Road is Town Close Prep School for
boys and girls. There are a number of fine public
houses and restaurants in the area, and Norwich
provides excellent shopping, schooling and leisure
facilities. Norwich is designated as a UNESCO City
of Literature and is England's first.

The rail link between Norwich and Cambridge
has a journey time of about 1 hour 25 minutes
and to London Liverpool Street with a journey
time of around 1 hour 50 minutes. Norwich
also has an airport serving both domestic and
international destinations.

Gardens and Grounds
The house is approached from the north-west through brick gate piers to a gravelled drive which leads along the western elevation to a parking and turning area to the front of the house. To the south of this there is an area of lawned garden bordered by a variety of mature shrubs, trees and hedging and there is a fine summer house overlooking the garden.

There is a planning permission for a new access to be constructed through the southernmost hedge onto Albemarle Road and also for the erection of garaging.

To the south east of the house there is a paved terrace and a copper roofed loggia overlooking a large expanse of formal lawned garden. There are well stocked flower and shrub borders and a York stone paved terrace including a greenhouse and to the rear of the property a half glazed garden shed, coal bunker, rear courtyard with three outside stores.
