A 17th century home has come up for sale in a popular city suburb - complete with river views and its own 'secret garden'. 

The Grade II listed property is situated next to River Green in Thorpe St Andrew, on the outskirts of Norwich, and is offered for sale with no onward chain for £485,000.

It is described by selling agents Sowerbys as an "enchanting" house, which has been lovingly restored by the present owners and is packed with character.

The property is tucked away off Yarmouth Road, opposite the river, and is finished with a pretty pastel colourwash and Tudor-style detailing.

The upstairs landing is glazed and offers stunning views over the river and of the neighbouring church, before leading on to two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The master suite is packed with gorgeous period details, including exposed timbers, a walk-in wardrobe and its original feature fireplace, and the second double bedroom also has an en suite shower room and built-in wardrobes.

A second floor is accessed off the landing and leads to two further double rooms, which interconnect. They are currently used as a bedroom and study but could be reinstated as two bedrooms, if required, or perhaps as a bedroom and snug for an older teen. Both rooms are vaulted with exposed beams and one also has its own built-in storage cupboard.
