Property Description

The property comprises a freehold former care home site with planning permission for change of use to residential. The property includes a detached two-storey, three-bedroom farmhouse of approximately 1,743 sq. ft. requiring refurbishment/renovation. The farmhouse is currently configured to provide two self-contained one-bedroom apartments each having a bedroom, lounge, kitchen, and bathroom. Standing adjacent is a single storey barn conversion providing seven one-bedroom self-contained apartments totalling approximately 4,900 sq. ft. each with a bedroom, lounge, kitchen, and bathroom. All apartments overlook a communal courtyard. The site extends to approximately 1.18 acres (0.48 hectares), having a gravel driveway and car park with hedgerows and a garden around the farmhouse. Also included within the site boundaries are an activity room and office space. These structures could potentially be repurposed and renovated for a variety of alternative uses. The properties are all heated via a biomass system located within a timber building adjacent to the car park. An excellent opportunity to develop two large family homes or create a holiday let business in close proximity to the popular north Norfolk coastline.


The property lies in an attractive, secluded, rural location between the villages of Bacton and Witton and is accessed via a private road running off Pollard Street.
Bacton is a village on the popular north Norfolk coast lying approximately 22 miles north of Norwich and 11 miles south east of Cromer.
