About this property

Detailed Description


The land at Forncett St Peter extends to approximately 21.40 hectares (52.93 acres) of primarily arable land divided into 3 lots. The land is gently undulating in an attractive rural setting with significant amenity and environmental appeal.

The land is classified as Grade 3 by the Provisional Agricultural Land Classification Sheet and identified as being part of the Burlingham 1 Series being described generally as deep coarse and fine loamy soils with slowly permeable sub-soils, mostly suited to a combinable cropping rotation.

The land has formerly been let under an Agricultural Holdings Act Tenancy in a conventional arable rotation. Over the past ten years the back cropping has included winter cereals, and sugar beet.
The What3Words reference for the lots is:
Lot 1: ///
Lot 2: ///darkens.radiates.mason
Lot 3: ///unstated.churn.trap.

The lots may all be accessed directly from the highway, being Norfolk County Council maintained roads.


Lot 1 comprises approximately 10.29 hectares (25.42 acres) including 8.69 hectares (21.47 acres) of productive arable land divided into 3 parcels and an attractive parcel of permanent pasture bordered by hedges and extending to approximately 1.6 hectares (3.94 acres). There is good access to the land from Northfield Road to the north and Long Stratton Road to the south.

Lot 2 comprises approximately 8.77 hectares (21.68 acres) of undulating arable land divided into 2 parcels with access from Long Stratton Road to the north and Gilders Wood Road to the south. To the south there is a small parcel of grass which we are advised used to be an old gravel pit thereafter filled in with partly material from the Council dust carts.

Lot 3 comprises a single parcel of arable/ amenity land with extensive road frontage onto Long Stratton Road and The Lane to the south extending to 2.36 hectares (5.82 acres).


The purchaser/s will be deemed to have full knowledge and have satisfied themselves as to any planning matters that may affect the property.

In particular, Lots 1 and 2 are likely to be subject to the Norwich to Tilbury National Grid Transmission Project with pylons proposed in both lots. Further detail is available from the Vendors Agents.


Drainage rates are payable. All outgoings will be apportioned on completion.


For an offer below the guide price the vendors will seek a deed of covenant whereby 30% of any increase in value following the grant of any planning permission or other approval under the Town & Country Planning Acts for anything other than agricultural or equestrian use shall be paid to the Council. The covenant will run for 30 years from the date of the conveyance and will be payable on implementation of a planning consent/approval or sale of this property with the benefit of the planning permission/approval. This will exclude the Norwich to Tilbury National Grid Transmission Project.


The property is offered for sale by private treaty as a whole or in lots. If a prospective purchaser is interested in part of any lot they are invited to discuss their requirements with the selling agents.
