Mentioned in the Doom's Day Book, the picturesque mid-Norfolk village of Buxton with Lammas is 20 minutes drive from the heart of Broadland and 8 miles due north of Norwich city with its electric main line to London Liverpool Street Stn (1 3/4 hrs). The village has a very good, community CofE primary school, Kindergarten, post office, general store, hairdresser, fish and chip shop, village green with associated football and cricket pitches (well used) and fenced off childrens’ playground. The closest village for slightly bigger shops and driving fuels is Coltishall (5 minutes by car) with North Walsham and Norwich being the nearest towns. The Google street view pre-dates the PV solar installation (2012) and the newly re-gravelled parking area (2016).
The sale price includes title transfer of the Feed in Tariffs (FIT) generated from the roof mounted Photo Voltaic (PV) solar installation which currently generates £790 (rolling 12-month average) since June 2012: FIT payments run until 2037. The new owners will also benefit, for own use, from the free electricity generated when the sun is shining. All PV solar installation documentation will be transferred to the new owners.
The house is fully compliant with ‘The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015', and is a going concern as a Buy-to-Let property generating £650 pcm.
