Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION & LOCATION Lying on the Western outskirts of Norfolk adjoining the Fenlands, this commercial property which includes an office, yard and outbuildings has until recently been operated as a shot blast business. The residential house, garden land and meadow lies adjacent to the yard and although not entirely completed, a significant portion of the build has already taken place with further completion works outstanding. The whole Lot extends to approximately 10.5 acres (subject to survey).

Planning consent was granted in 2005 for the construction of the dwelling and double garage on the condition that "....the occupation of the dwelling shall be limited to a person solely or mainly working in the adjacent shot-blasting business and any widow or widower of such person and any resident dependants." ( Condition 3. GRANT OF PLANNING PERMISSION, validated 25 April 2005).

Although it is unlikely that the industrial use will be limited to shot-blasting, any purchaser interested in this property should in the first instance contact the local planning authority. (See contact details below).

The sale of this property represents a unique opportunity to run a commercial business and reside in the same location whilst enjoying the benefits of a rural environment. Early viewings are recommended.

The Norfolk village of Hockwold contains the usual village amenities including a shop; public houses and a church, as well as a primary school. The Suffolk market town of Brandon lies approximately 4 miles to the South-East and the larger town of Thetford is approximately 10 miles away. The Thetford Pine Forests are only a short distance.  

INDUSTRIAL LAND/YARD The yard extends to approximately 3.5 acres (subject to survey). The property is flat and the boundaries are defined by post and wire fences or live hedges.

There are a range of buildings, some partially complete. There is an incomplete commercial vehicle workshop where the majority of the walls and roof bearers have been completed but requires further works. There is a double bay low shelter or implement shed which has been used for sand blasting operation and is capable of storing sand for shot blasting and small commercial vehicles. Located within the yard is a:-
