Fengate Drove, Weeting

Sold Subject to Contract £100,000

3 1 1
SITUATION & LOCATION This semi detached single storey dwelling occupies a pleasant and convenient position on Fengate Drove which is situated close to the border with the market town of Brandon but actually in the Norfolk village of Weeting. Fengate Drove eventually becomes a rural track ideal for dog walking and country walks.

The property was probably built around the 1950's and is of a non standard construction. The walls appear to be constructed of single skin concrete block under a gently sloping concrete roof which is also felted. The later rear kitchen addition appears to be of cavity brick construction. The plot has an approximate area of 0.10 acre (subject to survey) with a frontage of approximately 12m and a depth of about 36m.

In recent years planning consent was granted for the neighbouring property, No 3 Fengate Drove, a similar property, to be demolished and a four bedroom new house constructed. This has now been built. There may well be potential to develop this site in a similar way, subject of course to the usual planning requirement and agreement with the neighbouring property. Alternatively this property lends its self to further improvement, refurbishment and extension.

Despite the postal address, the village of Weeting is just on the Norfolk side of the county boundary. Within the village is a post office stores, fish & chip shop, primary school, church and a public house. There is a garage, village hall and playing field. The market town of Brandon is approximately 1 mile away with a wider range of shops and other facilities. Thetford is about 8 miles.
