Full description

DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY – An excellent opportunity to acquire a building plot with consent to convert a barn into two dwellings. With each proposed dwelling being around 1800 sq ft in size and occupying a most glorious rural position with outstanding views over the undulating countryside.


The existing agricultural barn occupies a most pleasing position found within a more rural but yet not isolated situation towards the outskirts of Tibenham, set well back from a small country road and approached via a long shared hard standing driveway leading up to the barn and three other existing properties, on what was originally an old farm. The once small agricultural farm and original farm house are currently in the process of being restored and further information regarding this can be obtained by Whittley Parish. The proposed dwelling will enjoy a most pleasing rural outlook over the roaming countryside, yet still being within close proximity to amenities. The village of Tibenham is found close to the south Norfolk borders and has proved to be a popular location over the years, still retaining a strong and active local community with the benefit of a public house, church and village hall. A further more extensive range of amenities and facilities can be found in the historic market town of Diss, lying 7 miles to the south. Diss also has the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular/direct services to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich. The village of Long Stratton also provides a good range of amenities and facilities found just 6 miles to the north east. Wymondham and Attleborough are also approximately just under 10 miles to the north-west.

GUIDE PRICE - £180,000 TO £200,000

Planning with permitted development rights was approved by South Norfolk Council, in March 2015. A planning application reference is, 2015/0718/MB.
