It was a real surprise to find just how large number 72 Earlham Road - for sale for a guide price of £750,000 - is both inside and at its rear where it boasts a really spectacular private garden.
This grand period property is one of just a few built at the city end of Earlham Road, beautifully positioned between West Parade and Park Lane.
When you stand in the garden at the rear and look back at the house you could be in Italy or France; it feels so different.
The house occupies an elevated position and boasts three floors as well as a below ground level.
The garden is just gorgeous, boasting a large sun drenched terrace and then a lawn extending far to the rear. When I visited exactly a week ago, there was an abundance of little cornflowers everywhere just draping the outdoors in a shield of blue as well as a magnolia tree about to bloom and lots of fruit trees and other plants and shrubs.
This is a fabulous city family house which is situated on bustling road but you live at its rear because at the front is a parking area and you have the delights of being able to walk into the city or round the corner to the Golden Triangle shops and amenities.
You enter up steps into a hall with a front door boasting some lovely original stained glass panels depicting garden birds and off this are your principal reception rooms, a large drawing room and sitting room as well as a family room.
You can have a formal dining room if you wanted or use it as a playroom and then downstairs in the basement is a large kitchen and a super store where you can put a bicycle and there is also a cloakroom.
You can access the garden from this level and then up on two more floors you have a total of five bedrooms.
The master and three others as well as two en suites are on one floor and then on the very top floor is the fifth bedroom but this could be a study or a room for an au pair or nanny.
From here you have an incredible view of the Golden Triangle, over the roof tops of the neighbouring streets and it really is a very interesting view.
This house is really very special and perfect if you are a working family.
