Full description

Tenure: Freehold

IMPORTANT NOTE Surveys have been carried out by structural engineers on behalf of the owner and also separately by the Insurer of the building, which suggests that settlement has occurred because of soil conditions and that to prevent any further long-term movement, piled underpinning will need to be carried out to prevent further settlement. As such only cash offers will be entertained.

An email copy of the structural engineer's report and also the Insurers reports are available on request.
 

The Property Semi-detached Grade II Listed flint cottage which offers a floor area of approximately 1,500ft2 including large loft area and cellar. At present the accommodation comprises former shop area, family room, living room, dining room/inner hallway, plus kitchen and lean. The first floor comprises three bedrooms and family bathroom, with staircase leading up to a large loft area as well as a separate staircase leading to the cellar.  

Outside To the front of the property there are double gates which in turn lead to an off street parking area and beyond this there can be found a further parking area within which can also be found a former stable measuring approximately 36' x 12' (external measurement). This barn would lend itself to a number of uses and would ideally suit someone requiring off-street parking for vehicles as well as a storage area/yard for works equipment or as a separate office from the family home. However, one of the main opportunities that could be investigated by the incoming purchaser would be the planning potential that the property offers.  

Planning Potential We have had pre-application discussions with the Local Planning Authority to ascertain the likelihood of obtaining planning permission for residential development within the yard, based principally on proposed conversion/replacement of the existing outbuilding to form a pair of mews style apartments. Informal advice was provided by Highways indicating the existing access was not suitable for intensification of use due to lack of visibility. However, we were advised by Highways that given the proximity of the site to the town centre, a car free scheme may be achievable and could be explored further with the planners.
A conservation officer was also consulted regarding outline proposals. The indications were, although a convincing argument would need to be presented to justify the loss of an outbuilding due to the extent of subsequent alterations to its original structure, its significance is reduced.

Discussions were also had to determine if the existing vehicle access could be widened by removal of a later lean to conservatory and parapet wall, the indications were the removal off this structure was unlikely to be problematic. Any opinions expressed by officers were informal and any purchaser would need to satisfy themselves as to the planning potential of the site.
 

Situation Thetford offers a wide range of facilities including pedestrianised shopping area as well as good transport links via the coach station and via Thetford railway station to east midlands and the north, with one change of trains giving access to London, whilst the A11 also provides easy access to London. Within the town there can be found a swimming and leisure pool complex, with the schooling catering for all levels of education from Private through to State. 

Directions On reaching Thetford from the A134 at the set of traffic lights take the turning right onto Norwich Road and continue along this road through another set of traffic lights, after which the turning for Earl Street will be found on the right hand opposite a Tesco's Express. Continue along Earl Street where the property will be found after a short distance on the right.
