A three-bedroom home has come up for sale on St Giles Street in Norwich for a guide price of £925,000.

Gurney House was formerly part of 38 St Giles Street, a luxury bed and breakfast, and selling agents Sowerbys say that inside the property still feels as luxurious and opulent as a "boutique hotel."

It is part of a Grade II listed building built in 1700 for the Gurney family and once home to the former Lord Mayor of Norwich.

Sowerbys understands that the owners are retaining some of the much bigger building as a bed and breakfast, and have transformed the rest into a private semi-detached three-bedroom home.

The property is entered through its original Georgian-era door, which leads into a spacious hallway, complete with pamment tiles, and then into an elegant and opulent living room.

Towards the rear of the home there is a modern and well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room, which offers plenty of storage and worktop space, a bespoke seating area and access to the south-facing garden through an over-sized door.
