An opportunity to acquire a detached, period farmhouse for renovation together with a range of traditional barns with planning permission for conversion to three residential dwellings with adjoining grazing paddocks.
The site extends in all to approximately 1.99 Ha (4.92 Acres). FOR SALE BY PRIVATE TREATY
As a Whole INTRODUCTION
Highbury Farm offers the opportunity to acquire an
imposing and historic Norfolk farmhouse together with
an extensive range of traditional barns with consent for
conversion to form three residential units in a site which extends in all to
approximately 1.99 Ha (4.92 Acres).
Highbury Farm is believed to be one of the original
farmsteads in the village; the farmhouse dates from the 16th Century, with later Victorian alterations. Built of
brick and knapped flint under a tiled roof the farmhouse
retains many interesting exterior and interior period features.
The property now requires renovation throughout but
has great potential to create an attractive family home in this popular village.
Highbury Farm is approached from the village via a
gravelled drive off Colby Road. The property has the
benefit of secluded walled gardens, plenty of parking
space, outbuildings, and an ornamental pond.
At the rear of the farmhouse is a large range of traditional
barns predominantly constructed of brick with clay
pantile roof. Part of the range is a timber framed cart shed
with former granary above. The complex of barns is likely
to have originated from the same date as the farmhouse
and are shown on maps from 1707; they feature a variety
of historic architectural features and timber work. The
barns benefit from an implemented planning permission
to convert the majority of them into three residential
dwellings, with potential for plenty of historic character.
To the north of the barns are grazing paddocks which extend to
approximately 1.16 Ha (2.87 Acres) THE BARNS
An extensive range of traditional barns with consent to
convert into three residential dwellings. The consent
allows for a new vehicular access to be created on the
west side of the pond with the current driveway then
closed up. Outline planning consent was originally
granted by North Norfolk District Council under application reference: PO/06/1725 on 25th January 2007. A Reserved Matters application (reference: PM/09/1198) was later approved by the Council on 25th January 2010. We are informed that Condition 8 (Wildlife Survey)
on the Outline planning consent has been discharged along with Condition 3 (Historic Building Record) on the Reserved Matters application. A Building Regulations application for Unit 1 was
registered by Building Control at North Norfolk District Council under reference FP/12/0435 and works were commenced, inspected and approved on 23rd January 2012.
An application is currently underway with North Norfolk
District Council for a Lawful Development Certificate.
Whilst the approved plans cover the majority of the
barns there may be potential to convert the 'easterly
wing' to a fourth unit or perhaps an annexe and home
office for use in conjunction with the farmhouse (stpp).
Please refer to the plans included in the particulars which
show the approved layout for each unit: THE LAND
The land to the north of the barns comprises an area of grazing paddocks which extend to
approximately 1.16 Ha (2.87 Acres) and divided by various timber post and
rail fences with stock netting. There are three separate
timber stable blocks spread across the paddocks.
To the west of Unit 1 is an area of concrete hardstanding/
rough ground on which part was previously used for
siting a static caravan which did have mains electric and water connected.
With the land available there are plenty of opportunities
to divide this up between the farmhouse and barns to
offer larger plots to each property PLEASE REFER TO BROCHURE FOR FULL DETAILS GENERAL REMARKS AND STIPULATIONS VIEWING
