Discover Sentinel House

If you’ve spent much time in Norwich over the past two decades then you’ll remember the Aviva building on Surrey Street. It was last used by the company in 2015 and since then has undergone a dramatic renovation into luxury apartments. The building comes complete with a concierge service and gym, as well as a residents’ lounge.

The history of the building dates back to the late 1980s, when the Norwich Union, later to become Aviva, commissioned its build. The original design featured a 17.5 metre stained glass window that set the building apart. It was reflective of the times when business was good and companies wanted to show how prosperous they were. And in order to preserve this wow factor, the developers have kept the window in place.

The other major plus point about the building is that it is located right in the city centre and that comes with all the associated benefits. You will be right on the doorstep of all the quirky cafes, vibrant nightlife and world-class shopping that you can find in the city. Being this close to the largest complete medieval city in the UK is a rare and privileged position. You’ll find something of interest around every corner. The city is big on culture, with a castle on the hill, a majestic cathedral and one of the UK’s most famous markets.

The flats themselves are equally as impressive. They are all built with quiet wall technology to ensure soundproofing between the apartments. Cutting edge air flow allows for exceptional ventilation so there is no need to open windows in the winter to ensure fresh air.

As well as the concierge service, there is a marble lobby area complete with brushed concrete floors and an impressive TV screen. The building also enjoys panoramic views of the city. Work out in the 24-hour gym and enjoy an easy commute from the bus station, located just a stone’s throw away. And all of this is available from just £140,000, with legal fees paid if you use our recommended solicitor and can complete in 14 days.

Opportunities to live in the heart of one of the UK’s most beautiful cities don’t come along all the time, so act now to secure your place in one of Norwich’s most prominent buildings. To find out more about this unique opportunity, get in touch with our team here at Agile Property Partners.
