A unique one-bed apartment near Norwich railway station, complete with its own office space, will go under the hammer at auction next month.

The property on Lower Clarence Road, Norwich, is for sale with Auction House East Anglia, having previously been listed on the open market with Sefftons last October.

Before conversion, the building was used as a storeroom for the railway workers’ social club.

A spokesperson for Auction House said that the mixed-use property, which is listed at a guide price of £250,000-£270,000, “would offer an excellent yield in the rental market or offer the opportunity to live and work in close proximity.”

The apartment consists of a contemporary fitted kitchen, shower room and double bedroom with wardrobe space, as well as a “spectacular” roof garden, which takes in far-reaching views of the city. Bi-fold doors also allow easy access to a private courtyard garden, which is accessed by a gated entrance.

Auction House suggests that the business space, which has been designated Class E use, could make an ideal office or shop, or even a tattoo parlour, hairdressers or financial services office. Alternatively it could be converted into a generous studio apartment, subject to planning.

It’s great central location lends itself to fantastic potential as an Airbnb, and the space currently includes a kitchen area and separate shower room.

The building also has the potential to develop upwards, subject to necessary planning permission, and the existing courtyard space could even be purposed as a designated parking space.
