A substantial detached period house with grounds of 1.35 acres in a popular sought-after location

Wychwood is a fine detached house set within grounds of 1.35 acres and built of brick elevations under pantile roof. It is believed to have formed part of the Cringleford Lodge Estate built in 1892 by Edward Boardman who was a well-known Norwich architect. Inside there are some wonderful rooms including a welcoming entrance hall, a cosy study with bay window and a bright drawing room with herringbone parquet flooring, open fire place, floor to ceiling wood framed sash windows and French doors out to the gardens. In addition, there is a good sized dining room, kitchen with gas fired aga, sitting room with wood burning stove, garden room with French doors out to the courtyard garden and a utility room with guest wc and internal door to double garage. Upstairs is the principal bedroom with en suite shower room and balcony that faces south overlooking the lawned gardens. Another double bedroom also enjoys an en suite bathroom as well as fitted wardrobes. There are a further three bedrooms and a separate family bathroom. The property benefits from double glazing throughout other than in the drawing room.

This property has 1.35 acres of land.


Outside, the gardens are laid out to the west and south of the property with a courtyard garden to the east that leads to a south facing terrace with loggia for sheltered seating on the southern elevation of the house. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with shrub borders, most notably, some delightful rhododendron displays. On the southern boundary is small woodland walkway with a number of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs. The property is approached through a pillared entrance with metal gates onto a shingled driveway with turning circle and plenty of space for parking numerous vehicles. There is a restrictive covenant preventing the erection of any additional buildings or structures on the curtilage of the property.


The property is situated about 300m down Colney Lane, which is a highly sought-after road in Norwich. Nearby Eaton Village provides a good range of amenities, including a Waitrose supermarket, post office, and two well-regarded pubs.

There are good quality schools on the Newmarket Road, namely Norwich High School for Girls and Town Close Prep School, with further private education at the Norwich School in the city centre. The property is within walking distance of the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital and the University of East Anglia.


From Norwich city centre proceed south on the Newmarket Road. Take the left slip road into Eaton, and head over the traffic lights past the Waitrose entrance. Continue over the bridge and up the hill, turning right into Colney Lane. Continue over the Newmarket Road/A11 overpass and carry along Colney Lane. Wychwood can be found at number 13 through pillared gates on the left hand side.
