Foulsham has good shopping facilities, a pub, junior school, and church. The Georgian town of Holt is within easy reach, offering an excellent range of shopping facilities and is the home of Gresham's public, preparatory and nursery school. Nearby is Beeston Hall prep school whilst there is a good selection of other private and state schools in and around Norwich. The market towns of Fakenham and Dereham offer good local shopping with a selection of supermarkets and schools, whilst the North Norfolk coast renowned for its sandy beaches, bird reserves and sailing is about 14 miles to the north.

There are also main line railway stations at Kings Lynn and Downham Market for trains to Cambridge and London- Kings Cross. __________ DESCRIPTION The site lies to the west of Foxley Road and is accessed through the beautiful neighbouring Westfield Farmhouse. The surrounding countryside is dominated by agricultural land, with fields interspersed with hedgerows, scattered trees and small areas of woodland. The barn is being offered for sale with Class Q planning permission: Change of Use of Agricultural Building to Dwelling. Please not that we believe the footprint that can be built on does not include the open overhang areas - these are indicated in grey on the accompanying floor plan. The technical drawings in this brochure are purely indicative, they only serve to give a potential purchaser an idea of what the barn could look like based on this plan. __________ SURVEYS Our client has commissioned an Ecological Impact Assessment, an Environmental Risk Assessment and a Structural Condition Assessment of the development site. All reports are available to view on the council website under the planning application. __________ PLANNING PERMISSION Planning permission (Ref: 20190208) has been granted by Broadland District Council. The date of application was 07.02.2019 and the permission was granted on 04.04.19. The application and supporting documentation can be viewed on the Broadland District Council planning section online. Please note that our client has since purchased the strip of ground surrounding the barn - this land was not included on the documents with the planning permission. We understand from our client that part of the planning permission requires that part of the tin covered unit to be removed from the site. __________ LOCAL AUTHORITY Broadland Council __________ SERVICES Mains water and mains electricity are available to the site but will need to be connected by the purchaser. __________ DIRECTIONS From Norwich take the A1067 Fakenham Road and after about 14 miles take the turning to the right signposted to Foulsham opposite the water tower. Continue onto Foxley Road and drive for approximately 0.5 miles. Turn left into the driveway signposted Westfield Farm. Drive through the farm along the gravel driveway, passing the farm house on the left, and the converted barn on the right hand side - the entrance to Girlings Barn will then be ahead of you. __________ DATE DETAILS PRODUCED June 2020 __________ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1.
