Once again, we can’t resist the lure of an industrial conversion, especially when it looks as sharp as this 3W-designed apartment in The Factory, Norwich, Norfolk.
The building, which is in the south east of the city, dates back to 1953. It was used back then to produce motors, but around 10 years back it was taken on by 3W and the transition was made from industrial to living space.
24 apartments were created within that industrial space, with the architects careful to maintain the distinctive look of the building, not least the ‘wavy’ roofline, along with a number of interior details.
The apartment here is a large four-bedroom affair, described by the agent as having the ‘best position’ in the building and set out over two floors.
The prime space here is the kitchen / living / dining room with its wonderful double-height vaulted ceiling. That’s the ‘wow’ factor, especially when the sun shines in through the full-width glazing (on two sides) and roof lantern. Great views too apparently, looking out over the city to the Cathedral on one side and Norwich City football ground on the other. Not sure if you can watch a match though. Might be something to check at a viewing.
Also on that level are three bedrooms (one used as a study right now) and a family bathroom. Head up some stairs and you will find the master bedroom, which now has the recent addition of a shower room.
Talking of additions, the current designer owners have added their own spin on the place, adding in a new kitchen, as well as bespoke furniture for the apartment, both in-built and freestanding.
Outside space too, which is a large south-facing and decked roof terrace with glass balustrade. You also get a place in the private car park for the building too.
Lovely job all round and potentially yours for around £465,000.
