Polly Hughes, associate director in the residential sales team at Savills in Norwich, said: “Dartford House is a substantial Victorian home that has been stunningly renovated by the current owners. An adjoining studio has also been converted into a fantastic reception space. Currently used as a games room, it is ideal for entertaining.  

“But what really makes the property stand out is the outside space. It’s rare to find somewhere this close to the city centre in such a private setting with such a large garden.”
