Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set in 0.32 acre. A detached cottage for updating or possible redevelopment of the site. 2 reception rooms, kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. A rare find. 

Location This cottage is located just on the way into Old Buckenham on the corner of Cake Street and Harlingwood Lane. It is set towards the corner of its plot allowing plenty of room for extensions or possible sub-division, subject to planning (see later note). Old Buckenham is a very popular village centred around the expanse of village green and supports various facilities including public houses, a village stores with post office, secondary school, private airfield and fine church. It is very well located for wider facilities available in the towns of Attleborough, Wymondham and Diss. All of which have train stations providing commuter services to London. The fine cathedral city of Norwich lies just 15 miles or so to the north west. 

The Property Homefield is a property of mixed ages with part timber frame and then appearing to have been remodelled in the Victorian era to give larger windows and a more elegant façade, all beneath a slate roof. It is fair to say that whilst the house has been maintained over the years, it would now benefit from a scheme of general updating and some remodelling to create better access to the rooms.  

Outside The property is set within 0.128 ha (0.32 acre) with a driveway leading off Harlingwood Lane and up to the double garage (20' x 19'8). The grounds extend to the east and south predominantly and are laid to grass with various trees. 

Agent's Note 1. Given the extent of ground and position of the house on its plot, it is thought that redevelopment of the site and possible sub-division of the site may be considered by the Council. However, it should be noted that no discussions have taken place with Breckland Council about this.


Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Private drainage (mains drains run along Harlingwood Lane). Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and domestic hot water. Please note that the services/appliances/central heating and heating system/plumbing and electrical installations have not been tested by the selling agents and the purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition and warranty of these items. 

Directions From Attleborough leaving on the B1077 and follow the road into Old Buckenham. Go past the expanse of common, around the S-bend and in around 300m turn left into Harlingwood Lane where Homefield is seen immediately on the right hand side with the gateway just to the rear. 

Viewing Strictly by appointment with TW Gaze.
