Property Details3 Albemarle Road is a delightful spacious double fronted house on two floors situated on one of the most sought after roads in Norwich.The house was built in 1867 of principally gault brick with a pantile roof and the property retains much fine period detail including sash shuttered windows and large well- proportioned rooms. There is a magnificent entrance hall, which runs through the centre of the house and off which all the principal rooms lead. These include a superb sitting room, kitchen with French doors to gardens as well as a morning room/snug and dining room together with a secondary kitchen/utility room and rear hall/boot room.In 1907 further alterations and additions were made to the house and these were believed to have been designed by the renowned Norwich architect, Edward Boardman.
