One of the topics we often encounter at Pure Estate Agency, when we’re out and about on valuations and viewings, or spending leisure time in our Fine City, is the road network.
Taxi drivers talk about it.
Vendors discuss it.
The team at Pure Estate Agency chat about it.
Let’s have a look at some of these improvements, focusing in this post on Westlegate, Golden Ball Street and Ber Street.

NR2, the Golden Triangle, remains one of the most salubrious places in Norwich to live and invest in.
If you’re not familiar with the area, it is mathematically named and shaped as it is enclosed within 3 roads: Newmarket Road, which stretches from the city centre to Eaton and Cringleford; Unthank Road and Earlham Road.
It’s an incredibly popular area with professionals and graduates, being described once as “Norwich’s Notting Hill” given its cosmopolitan mix of people and bijou businesses.
NR2 did feature as one of the best places to live in the UK as recently as 2014 and, judging by sales from our Norwich estate agency office in the 3 years since, the area and property prices continue to flourish.
So what is its appeal?

Many parts of Norfolk opted to ‘Leave’ the EU, that’s a fact, with Norwich Central voting ‘Remain’.
Everyone has a view on Brexit but instead of politicising the referendum outcome to leave the EU and the subsequent ramifications of Article 50, we thought we’d look at its impact on the property scene in Norwich and around.
You probably love statistics, as do we, so we wanted to share some with you.
These are average property selling prices across Norwich and their annual percentage increases from 2014 to 2016.
Pull up a chair and see what is happening locally.

Norfolk has generally been regarded as something of a backwater when it comes to road networks but in recent years, there have been some advances.
The main one is the dualling of the A11 from Cringleford to Thetford, where a new road has made congestion a thing of the past around Elveden and Center Parcs.
Further east, new roads have been constructed around Lowestoft and the villages of Great Yarmouth for new housing and closer to Norwich, we have the impending opening of the Northern Distributor Road.

No questions asked, where’s best to invest in Norwich?
Recent news named the usual suspects as investment hotspots: the Thames Valley, parts of London (like Limehouse and Kew), Cambridge, Birmingham and Manchester and some less familiar names: Rotherham in South Yorkshire and Shetland (which saw the biggest price increases in 2016 at 26%).
It’s a question often poised to us a leading Norwich estate agent and letting agent:
