Welcome to Our House The Old Bracondale School House - Norwich

The old Bracondale School House was built in the late 1890's. Originally built as a large detached house, turrets were added some 15 years later. During the 1950's, the house was bought and changed into part of the Bracondale School complex, consisting of the Upper School and Junior School buildings. In 2002, we bought the school and changed it back into a house. With much research we endeavor to put the house back to its original look, both inside and out. This is an on going project. The grounds for the house include a full size detached garage for four cars, with workshop plus 1 acre of land and a full match size tennis court.
