Full description

Enjoying a glorious rural but yet not isolated position this period farm house occupies grounds stretching to 5 acres and benefits from having planning consent for the conversion of a detached barn being some 169 sq metres (1819.1 sq ft) under planning reference 2016/05.


Located within the beautiful and idyllic rural countryside of South Norfolk the property is found just 7 miles to the north of Diss and some 8 miles to the south of Long Stratton. Further having the benefit of easy access to the A140 being just 3 or 4 miles to the east with suitable roads for large vehicles. The property enjoys a lovely position set well back from the road and is surrounded by open farmland giving a most pleasing position lying just off the Norfolk parish of Gissing. 


The property holds an enormous amount of history, having thought to date back to the early 1700’s and was originally a former public house, known as The Gissing Horseshoes, and is understood to have closed in the 1950’s where it was converted back into a residential dwelling and thereon sold to the current occupiers in 1977. During this time the Brewery that owns the pub purchased the two paddocks to the northern boundaries, which are still classed as common land, (however owned and registered on the deeds of the property). Not long after the property was purchased by the current vendors whom set up a farm shop and registered the property as a small holding, successfully running this for the last 30 years or so and gives a great benefit of any oncoming purchaser to do the same, reinstating the former existing farm shop/butchers stall with cold stores.

The house comprises of a three bedroom detached part timber frame cottage holding approximately over (1500 sq ft) (139.4 sq m) of internal living space, which has had the benefit of a new roof some 12 years ago along with electrics/wiring having been upgraded at the same time, further being heated by an oil fired central heating boiler via radiators, connected to mains water and having a septic tank for drainage.

For further information with regards to conditions/restraints and original application form please contact the selling agent.
