Norwich is always attracting new people to its streets – but where are the most appealing places to live in the city?
We spoke to local estate agents to find out where the most desirable places to live in Norwich are.
Natalie Howlett-Clarke, joint head of residential sales at Savills Norfolk, said: “Within Norwich, Christchurch Road, Town Close Road and Lime Tree Road are some of the most popular areas - and all three share very similar characteristics.
"There’s a mix of architecture but it’s predominately period properties, often with very good plot sizes, in close proximity to several excellent schools and within a short distance of lots of amenities.
"It’s that combination of character and convenience that makes the roads so appealing.
"People tend to stay there for a significant amount of time because they enjoy the lifestyle.
"Consequently, property can often demand a premium because it comes to market relatively rarely."
