Abbotts sold my house in 10 days, it's perfectly clear I made the right choice.

A charming and unique merchant's house, from the reign of George IV, a little way off the Newmarket Road.
Newmarket Road is arguably the most prestigious in Norwich and leads to Eagle Walk, a no-through road that accesses the pretty Eagle Park. Within easy walking distance of the city centre, you can enjoy the award winning retail outlets and restaurants of Chapelfield, the vibrant gardens beyond offering alfresco activities all summer long with further access to the historic marketplace, shops, cinemas and theatres.
For groceries, stay stocked up at the Sainsbury's supermarket around the corner on Queens Road, or use the Waitrose in the pretty hamlet of Cringleford conveniently close. A moment away is the Eagle public house, which offers great food and a fine selection of local ales.
By car there is easy access to the the inner and outer ring roads, the A11 and the A47. There are two parking spaces with the property and good public transport links and cycle paths.
This double fronted period house can be traced back to circa 1825 and there are records of the Church originally selling the land to a coal merchant. As is typical of the best Georgian architecture ceilings are high with full sash windows.
Today the property is a perfect blend of old and new with a double aspect drawing room and a dining room both of which enjoy a view over the garden. Over the property's history the ground floor has been expanded to include a conservatory, utility room and downstairs WC. The first floor has three well matched bedrooms each with original Georgian built-in wardrobes, along with a refitted family bathroom. An added bonus is the lined cellar which would be perfect for storing a wine collection.
The garden sets the property off beautifully with a high wall providing seclusion. The owners have created a garden as a lovely place in which to relax, with deep, well stocked beds and a large area of lawn in which to enjoy this quiet gem of a location.
