Regency House for Sale in Norwich

Holiday House is an early 19th century Regency house located on Church Street adjoining Catton Park, Norwich that's up for sale.

Go here to drool over photographs, descriptions, and floor plans of this beautiful house. Doesn't it make you want to just dream over it?

Built circa 1820, the house is said to have a Gothic influence (see the windows) and is situated in approximately half an acre of private gardens that are a riot of color and include a lily pond. Yew, holly, and evergreen hedges border the garden to keep the beauty private.

The roof still continues to be a thatched roof. The windows are deeply set with window seats and in-wall cupboards on either side. The house has been renovated on the inside and has a sitting room, dinning room, kitchen, and utility rooms on the first floor and four bedrooms on the second floor. Modern touches such as granite and electric ovens in the kitchen, underfloor heating, plumbing for washing machines, and a Jacuzzi make Holiday House eminently livable. Don't you just want to run over there and make it your own?

A little tidbit, the village of Old Catton was the home of Anna Sewell, the author of Black Beauty.

Lovely house, Keira! Do you know what kind of tree is in the middle of the picture underneath the description of the garage, and what kind of plants are hanging over the walls? The tree looks like a palm and the greenery is as feathery as ferns.

Joanna, great to see you here.

If you're on THIS page, then in the picture on the left, right below the main picture, are bamboo trees.

The picture near the description of the garage looks like a decorative date palm to me. I don't think it'd bear fruit, but it's definitely a date palm as opposed to another kind of a palm.

The ones along the wall look like a kind of bamboo to me (see HERE and HERE), but bamboo tends to be denuded of leaves towards the bottom with leaves starting halfway up.

Thanks, Keira. It surprises me how many tropical and desert plants grow in England.
