Converted Factory For Sale In Norwich
This week’s industrial property search has taken us to the city of Norwich. And this four bedroom apartment in The Factory, in the heart of Norwich, is a real gem. The top floor property occupies a space previously dedicated to the production of motor vehicles. Built in 1953, the factory was initially used to house draughtsmen and engineers working for Laurence, Scott & Electomotors Ltd.
4 bedroom apartment, The Factory, Norwich, £465,000, Rightmove
With a myriad of windows, and a corrugated-esque roof, The Factory follows traditional warehouse design. The building was was transformed to a residential premises a decade ago by the award-winning London and Bristol-based architectural practice 3W.
Showcasing a slick, crisp interior, the apartment is a minimalist haven. The heavily white design is offset subtly with light wood decor that broadens the colour scheme. The grid pattern windows let in plenty of light while maintaining the scandinavian style with grey frames. A double height ceiling creates a feeling of spaciousness.
The property features a vaulted skylight cut into the curved roof that runs the length of the apartment and effectively brightens the space. The bedroom is custom built with 48mm birch plywood and offers spacious storage. The wall hangings are part of a carefully curated and refined decor that avoids detracting from the unique structure, which is the star of the show.
There is original polished wood flooring throughout which provides a contemporary feel that blends in with the rest of the sleek interior.
The outdoor terrace serves as a great vantage point from which to admire the surrounding city. Its minimal design, with whitewashed brickwork and light teal glass balustrade, mimic the property’s interior.
