A huge Victorian property has hit the market – but will it be a huge family home or will it be divided into apartments?

Recently reduced from £440,000 to £425,000, the six-bedroom former B&B in Catton Grove Road, NR3, also has a secluded south-facing garden and an arched lounge/dining room.

Lewis Osborn, branch manager at William H Brown, Norwich – which markets the property – said: “It’s unusual and unique because of its size.

“In this area, Victorian style townhouses line the streets – and the houses attached to this property are traditional two story houses, while it’s probably about three times the size with off road parking and plenty of flexible use.

“The beams and stripped parquet are part of its period charm. Buyers will be able to fit it out as they wish, keeping the period features but modernizing the rest.

“It’s sympathetic to modern life but pays homage to the past.

“It’s really spacious. It could be a B&B, a residential house – the layout is really versatile, so you can compose it as you wish.

If the purchase was an investment opportunity, Lewis explained how the property could fetch up to £36,000 a year as a multiple occupancy (HMO) home, giving a “very strong” return of 8, 4 pcs.
