THE PROPERTY

An incredible opportunity to acquire a development site with planning permission (06/17/0028/O - Great Yarmouth Borough Council) to build 7 4-bedroom detached properties, each with approx. 196 sq. m of accommodation arranged over 2 floors with gardens and a detached garage. The development is approximately 2 acres (stms), set within an attractive location in the former grounds of the prestigious Beechcroft, the former home of Lady Vincent. __________ PLANNING PERMISSION - Application number 0617/0028/O - Reserved Matters Application 06/19/0161/D - Approved 12th November 2019 - Great Yarmouth Borough Council - Date granted 24th March 2017 - Residential development of seven detached dwellings accessed by extension of Foster Close __________ DRIVING DISTANCES (approx.) - Coast 1.1 miles - Great Yarmouth 6.2 miles - Norwich 20 miles __________ SITUATION Ormesby village is situated in the heart of the Trinity Broads. The Trinity Broads are no longer connected to the rest of the Broads network which means they have particularly clear water quality. Sailing, boating and fishing are allowed on these Broads but are carefully regulated as they are also areas rich in birdlife and natural beauty. There are a wide range of local amenities including small shops, restaurants, pubs, schools and a doctor's surgery. As well as the Norfolk Broads, there are numerous leisure facilities in the area including many golf courses, whilst the beautiful unspoilt beaches, such as Winterton are within easy driving distance. There are also several camping and caravan sites in the area. Access to both Norwich (approx. 20 miles) and Great Yarmouth (approx. 6.2 miles) is provided by the A47, London and motorways are accessed via the A12 from Great Yarmouth and the A11 from Norwich. The Cathedral City of Norwich is located 20 miles to the west and is known for its cultural and shopping facilities, range of schools both public and private, university, science parks, hospital and has a mainline railway station with regular connections to London. __________ DESCRIPTION The plot of land sits adjacent to, and to the south of Station Road and will be accessible via Foster Close. The plot sits to the rear of Beechcroft, which we understand was the former residence of Lady Vincent in the early 1900's. Full planning permission was granted on 24th March 2017 under application number 06/17/0028/O. An application for approval of reserved matters for appearance, landscaping and layout was made on 19th March 2019 and approval was granted on 12th November 2019. We have been told by our client that mains electricity, water, communication and drainage services are located in Foster Close. __________ PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT Preliminary drawings make provisions for a new access road that will continue on from Foster Close, passing through the site to serve each property. Proposed floorplans consist of an entrance porch, entrance hall, living room, kitchen, dining room, utility room and shower room on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite, 3 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The plans propose gardens, driveways and a detached garage to each property. __________ OUTSIDE The development site will be approximately 2.0 acres (stms). The land is presently laid to lawn, interspersed with mature specimen trees and bordered by mature hedging. The site is tucked away in a quiet setting. The properties will benefit from generous gardens, off-road parking and garaging. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY Great Yarmouth Borough Council __________ SERVICES We understand that utilities will be available via Foster Lane. Utilities will be connected at the purchaser's cost. __________ DIRECTIONS Leave Norwich on the A47 eastwards toward Acle. At the roundabout at Acle, take the A1064 towards Caister on Sea. Drive for approximately 5.4 miles and then turn left onto Pound Lane. After 0.5 miles turn left onto Mill Lane and then turn right onto Main Road/A149. Turn left onto Cromer Road and then left again onto Station Road. Turn right onto Symonds Avenue and left into Foster Close.
