3 Bedroom Detached House For Sale

With planning consent approved in late 2023, Holly Farm offers an opportunity for developers or end-users to renovate a farmhouse and two barns in a rural location in south Norfolk.

The approved planning offers the flexibility for the farmhouse to be separated from the two barns where it would retain its existing entrance and 0.8 acres of grounds. Meanwhile the barns (the smaller of which would be an annex to the larger) would use the existing entrance and would share a plot measuring just over a third of an acre.

The farmhouse is currently occupied, although it requires renovation throughout. As the floorplan shows, in its existing guise its ground floor provides two reception rooms, a kitchen, a laundry, a large storeroom, a boot room and a pantry.

The sitting room and the dining room both orientate around a central chimney which opens into a handsome red-brick fireplace with a log burner (in the sitting room). There are three bedrooms on the first floor and a family bathroom.

A re-configuration of the house, including converting both floors of the northern elevation of the building into bedroom and reception space would create a good sized five-bedroom, three-reception room home with a pleasant outlook.
A timber-framed barn to the rear of the house has consent for conversion into a 1348 square foot, detached dwelling.

If built to its approved plans, the completed dwelling will include an open-plan kitchen/dining/living space, four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms arranged over two floors, and accessed via two staircases.

A derelict, single storey outbuilding on the northern boundary has been granted consent for conversion into a 1512 square foot, two-bedroom annexe with a study, a family bathroom, a large sitting room, and a separate kitchen.  

Once completed, this building would function well as a granny annexe, a holiday let or a work-from-home office for multiple staff.

The grounds are mostly private and the larger lawn and patio to the front and side of the house both enjoy southerly aspects. There is a pond on the southern boundary and a variety of trees interspersed between well-tended beds.

Beyond those buildings with planning consent, there are a number of additional buildings (including a cart lodge) which could be demolished or improved to make a garage and/or workshop.

Holly Farm is located in a peaceful location on Common Road in Bressingham Common, two miles from Bressingham’s Primary School and village shop. Diss is around three and a half miles from the farm where all essential services are on offer including supermarkets and a train station which provides services to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street.

We understand the farm is connected to mains water and electric. The house is currently heated via an oil-fired central heating system and has a private sewerage system. It is registered within Council Tax Band D and has broadband speed in the region of 190 – 30 Mbps. EPC rating G.

The development is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) based on the square footage of the converted buildings. Based on the execution of the approved plans by a property developer the total exposure will be £19,238.00.

The planning expires in October 2026 and is subject to conditions including the installation of bat and owl boxes.
A 2021 wayleave agreement exists with Eastern Power Networks.

A planning application for an Anaerobic Digester has been refused in the area, with a subsequent demolition order placed. The plant (which is already partially built) is around 600 meters from Holly Farm but is completely out of sight.
