Exposed brick walls, rustic flagstone floors and partly vaulted ceilings make this four-bedroom barn conversion in Gooderstone a characterful home. 

It has an open-plan hallway and dining hall on the ground floor, as well as a study, cloakroom and sitting room, which features a cosy wood-burning stove set into an imposing brick hearth. 

At the opposite end of the property you will find an impressive kitchen and breakfast room, which is well-fitted and offers a good range of wall and base units, granite work surfaces, large kitchen island and space for an electric range-style cooker. 

The upstairs bedrooms are accessed off a galleried landing, which also leads to a family bathroom with a freestanding roll-top bath and a separate shower. 

Outside, the fully enclosed gardens are mainly laid to lawn and include two separate seating areas.

This pretty pastel blue townhouse overlooking the River Wensum is undoubtedly one of the city’s most photographed properties - and inside it is beautiful, too. 

Known as The Merchants House, it is Grade II listed and offers some huge living spaces – particularly when you consider how central it is – as well as gorgeous period details and plenty of flexibility. There is even the option to rearrange the rooms to create another bedroom, if required, transforming it into a four-bedroom townhouse. 

There is a welcoming reception hall, fitted kitchen and lovely sitting room on the ground floor, while the two upstairs rooms - currently arranged as an office and further sitting room - overlook the river.  

The master bedroom is located on the third floor and comes with an en suite shower room.  

Outside there is a small courtyard garden and a parking space which can be accessed from nearby Pigg Lane.
