3 bedroom townhouse in former Norwich YMCA building for sale


08:00 7 January 2022

A three-bedroom townhouse in the Grade II listed former YMCA home has gone on sale in Norwich for £550,000.

Number 48 St Giles Street has an interior garden tucked away in the town center and was part of the conversion from the former YMCA in 2016.

The imposing building – effectively a pair of adjoining townhouses – is steeped in history, having been purchased by Jeremiah James Colman of the Mustard Company in 1886.

As a YMCA, the Young Men’s Christian Association, the building saw evacuees from the Great Flood of 1912 pass through its doors as well as soldiers from both World Wars.

Once an elaborate house, it was subdivided into hostel rooms around 1960 and went up for sale in 2013 when the YMCA moved to new premises.

The building, which is listed the Unusual Star Grade II due to its architectural features, was later converted by Ravenscroft Developments and Pentaco Construction into six apartments and the townhouse.

The property is approached from St Giles Street with a separate entrance from the townhouse. A passageway with original stone flooring leads to the courtyard garden and an open plan kitchen/lounge/dining room with folding doors. The accommodation is spread over three floors with the master bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a separate dressing room. There are also two further bedrooms and a shower room.

The courtyard garden is a major feature of the property and acts as an excellent entertaining space, with seamless access to the property via the folding gates. Parking is available with the property on a rental basis.
