A handsome double fronted detached period house with south facing garden in the Golden Triangle

Clarendon House is a handsome double fronted period house offering a wealth of elegant, attractive accommodation with various splendid character details including high ceilings, large sash windows, ornate cornicing and original fireplaces.

The main ground floor reception room is the 24ft formal drawing room with its fireplace, French doors opening to the rear and tall bay window to the front. Across the reception hall there is a formal dining room which also features a fireplace and a large bay window. At the rear, the dual aspect garden room has French doors opening to the garden and is used as a sitting room. Adjacent is the open-plan kitchen and breakfast room which has been extended and includes ceramic floor tiles, sliding glass doors opening to the terrace, wooden fitted kitchen units and a stainless-steel range cooker. Further storage is available in the utility room and in the cellar, which has a wine cellar.

An elegant curving staircase provides access to the first floor, where there are five well-presented double bedrooms, four of which benefit from built-in storage. The generous principal bedroom at the front has its own dressing room and an en suite bathroom. The property also benefits from lift access, a family bathroom and an additional shower room. Underfloor heating is present in the kitchen, en suite bathroom and shower room.


At the front of the house, the driveway provides parking for several vehicles and access to the garage for further parking or home storage. The garden at the rear is southwest-facing and welcomes plenty of natural light throughout the day. It includes an area of paved and gravel terracing, an ornamental pond and a lawn bordered by well-stocked flowerbeds. At the end of the garden there is an original timber-framed summerhouse. The garden is enclosed with red brick walls, established hedgerows and mature trees offering privacy from neighbouring properties.


The property lies in a sought-after position less than a mile from Norwich city centre and with access to a range of local amenities and transport connections. There are various local shops and facilities on Unthank Road, while larger supermarkets are also close-at-hand on the outskirts of the city. Norwich city centre is within easy reach, with its extensive high street and independent shops and wide range of places to eat and drink. The area provides an excellent choice of schooling, including the outstanding-rated Colman Infant School as well as independents Norwich High School for Girls and Town Close Co-Educational Preparatory School. The A11 runs past the end of Albemarle Road, providing routes towards the M11 and the M25 beyond. The city’s mainline station is two miles away and provides regular services towards London Liverpool Street.
