Full description

Guide Price 200,000 - 175,000


This is an exceptional opportunity to take this architecturally significant Grade II listed Victorian water tower (1881) and create a stunning 4 storey residence. One of only two surviving water towers of its type in Norfolk, it has long stood unused and has been decommissioned.

The current owners have sought full planning permission to convert this to a residential property that will both preserve the industrial feel, quality and history of this building yet create a very contemporary internal living space that utilises the very structure and philosophy of the building. The double height entrance foyer is to remain where the capped well head exists, there will be a lift and a bedroom with en-suite to this floor.

The first and second floors will accommodate 3 further bedrooms (all en-suite), the third floor is to be the kitchen/living/dining room and the fourth floor is for a sitting room with roof lights and a large plate glass window to the south aspect. The sitting room is also designed to display the massive support beams for the water tank that are such an integral part to the history of the structure. For more information and to see full documentation relating to the conversion please view the Breckland Council Planning website ref: 3PL/2016/0385/F.
