898 SqFt (83.42 SqM)

For Sale £250,000


The property comprises a modern, purpose-built, self-contained, three-story office building with a net internal area of approximately 898 sq ft ( 83.45 sq m), prominently located on an established office location favoured by A2 users.

The building has planning consent for conversion to residential and is potentially suitable as a live-work property, subject to planning.


The property is located in Norwich city centre, close to the junction of Duke Street, St Andrews Street and Charing Cross, an established location for estate agents and other office occupiers. It is close to the central retail core with its wide range of shopping, leisure and commercial facilities, in the middle of the Norwich University of the Arts campus and on the edge of the Norwich Lanes, a district renowned for its independent shopping, cafes and restaurants. Norwich's largest public car park (1,084 spaces) is immediately opposite whilst Duke Street provides a swift link with the Inner Ring Road to the north.

Purpose-built modern office construction capable of providing open-plan floor areas
First floor divided by light-weight partition to provide two rooms
Solid floors with carpeting and vinyl floor finishes to offices and ancillary areas

Planning permission was obtained on 8 April 2020 to change the use of the property to residential with associated alterations and formation of new access to the rear of the property. Details can be found on the Norwich City Planning website, ref 20/00199/F.

Implementation of the above planning consent will trigger a liability to make a Community Infrastructure Levy payment, which will be the purchaser's responsibility. Further details can be provided.
