Auction Property

The Old Coach House, Norwich Road, Hethersett, Norwich, Norfolk, NR9 3AS

Sold for £158,000


Unusual opportunity to acquire a semi-detached barn with planning permission for conversion into a four bedroom home. Full planning consent was granted on 19th August 2019 for conversion of the barn to a dwelling house and change of use of agricultural land to garden under reference 2019/1419. The development must be begun within 3 years from the date of the granting of the permission. Plans, proposed elevations, site plan and floor plans are available on South Norfolk Council's planning portal together with details of CIL payment. Queries can also be directed to the vendors' agents. The sale is subject to completion of a schedule of works to divide the barn away from Hill Cottage, which is connected to the property at the rear. The vendors have allowed for a satisfactory curtilage to go with the property. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a first class barn with great potential. Interested parties should be aware that mains water and electricity are available. Buyers should carry out their own enquiries as to connection. There is scope to connect foul drainage to existing public system. Brown&Co’s Architects and Planners successfully delivered the designs and planning approval for this lot. They would be pleased to speak to prospective purchasers about the capabilities and experience of the team delivering projects on site.


The property is situated on the outskirts of Hethersett on the old London Road and well placed for easy access to the A11 trunk road and Norwich southern bypass. Access to Wymondham and Norwich is good and there are excellent local shopping and transport facilities in the village of Hethersett and both public and private schools are within easy reach, including the University of East Anglia. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a first class barn in a special place with rural views yet within 3 miles of the city of Norwich.


Proceed out of Norwich on the Newmarket Road and on reaching the Thickthorn roundabout take the exit onto the old London Road towards Hethersett. After about 1½ miles, just before reaching Hethersett, the property will be clearly seen on the left hand side of the road.
