Bracondale is a hill leading down the valley between the 2 local rivers (Yare & Wensum). The road is home to a number of superb period properties, many dating back to the 17th and 18th century, when Bracondale was (and still is!) a fashionable location and enjoys a Conservation Area status. Norwich is England's first UNESCO City of Literature, and was once home to the novelist, poet, and local historian R.H. Mottram, who became Lord Mayor of Norwich in 1953. Mottram was a conservationist, and in his memory a sculpture has been erected on St James' Hill, which is on the edge of Mousehold Heath, and offers wonderful panoramic views over Norwich. All of the amenities of the city are within walking distance including the family friendly Norwich City football club, the riverside leisure development complete with cinema and numerous restaurants and pubs. The property is also within a short walk of Norwich Cathedral, the immaculately preserved Cathedral Close and Norwich Castle, which was begun on the orders of William the Conqueror, and now houses a fine museum. The city is well known for its excellent shopping with a combination of independent retailers along with a number of well know establishments. In May each year, the city hosts the Norfolk and Norwich arts Festival, featuring music, theatre, dance, and other visual arts. The University of East Anglia is located in the city's outskirts and Norwich has an excellent range of state and private schools. The daily market in the centre of the city is a short walk, as is John Lewis and a number of other department stores. The mainline station is less than a 1-mile walk with a direct service to London Liverpool Street (quoted by Greater Anglia as 90 minutes). The expanding international Norwich airport is located to the north of the city and has daily flights to Europe and internal destinations. __________ HISTORIC ENGLAND Grade II listed, number: 1051381 first listed 26th February 1954 The following text has been taken directly from the Historic England website: TG 2307 S BRACONDALE (south-west side) 5/106 26.2.54 Nos. 62 and 64 GV II Pair of houses.
