Pitchford Road: HMO in Norwich

Student let: conversion of a 3-bed house to a 7-bed HMO

This is a 3 bedroom house situated near the University of East Anglia.

We are currently carrying out the conversion but one of the planning conditions was that we had to get an approved landscaping scheme in place before we could do the main works to the building. We are planning to have a single storey extension at the back of the house, which will extend three and a half metres into the garden, and a 2-storey extension on the side of the house.

The existing lounge will be converted into a bedroom, with an en-suite shower room, but the single storey extension will enable us to create a large open plan kitchen and dining room/ communal space.

The side extension will enable us to add two bedrooms downstairs, and two upstairs.

The garden has been cleared and will be fenced off. We will add benches and create a nice communal space.

At the back of the garden, we plan to have a secure bicycle shed and we will create a bin store.

Take a look at this video to see the planned transformation:
