Property Description

Tenure: Freehold



Lot 1
Manor Farm, stabling, traditional buildings, cold store, paddocks, ponds, irrigated arable land. About 89.81 acres (36.35 hectares)
Manor Farmhouse is an attractive Grade II Listed period property offering comfortable family accommodation, which could do with modernisation. To the north of the farmhouse is a stable courtyard, which leads into other traditional barns and buildings, formerly used as workshops, stores and agricultural use. The land is situated to the north of the Fakenham Road and incorporates four good-sized arable fields along with two grass paddocks adjacent to the farmstead, which could be suitable for equestrian use. Lot 1 forms an interesting small residential farm in its own right, and offers an opportunity to create an income via the traditional buildings (subject to the necessary consents). The grass paddocks have been grazed on an informal basis by the Graves family in the past.

Manor Farmhouse is a two-sided farmhouse (dual Pile) with double hipped roof and is of five bays on West elevation and four bays on the East. It has a tiled roof with black glazed pantiles on the western side. The house is believed to date from the 17th Century, with later additions and alterations. The house has good ceiling heights throughout, and of particular note is the reception hall with York stone flooring, and the dining room, which has an inglenook fireplace with exposed brickwork and beams. The sitting room has picture rail, working shutters and an open fireplace, and there are sash windows along the western elevation. The accommodation is well laid out, with a high degree of flexibility and the two staircases giving access to the six bedrooms emphasise this. The bathrooms need updating, and there is potential to convert the substantial attic space to further accommodation, subject to necessary consents. The house is particularly light and airy and there is a fine utility room/larder with some charming features. There is potential to combine the kitchen and breakfast room subject to the necessary consent. The kitchen has an electric Aga and the house has plenty of storage and a cellar.

Manor Farm and White Ollands Farm, Briston comprise a high quality arable farm situated in North Norfolk, about 4 miles South of Holt, the popular Georgian market town with a number of independent shops, and Gresham?s School. The North Norfolk Coast, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is about 6 miles to the north and offers a wide variety of leisure and recreational pursuits along with some fine restaurants and public houses. Manor and White Ollands Farm are situated on the edge of Briston, a vibrant and well served large village with amenities including H V Graves, a renowned butcher, baker and general convenience store, a co-op with post office, and the Three Horseshoes public house which features in the 2020 good food guide. Briston also has a primary school and the neighbouring Melton Constable, which blends into Briston, also has a number of amenities, including a garage, M & M Rutland, an award winning butcher and a store.

The main garden for Manor Farmhouse is to the west, and is walled, laid to lawn and is bordered by attractive flower and shrub borders along with some evergreen trees and shrubs which help to add to the privacy and seclusion. There is a small orchard, and some particularly fine roses. On the eastern side of the house there is a parking and turning area, which is adjacent to some well stocked flower beds and shrub borders. From this driveway there is access to the traditional barns and outbuildings, however there are two further accesses to the farm buildings, one to the east of the farmhouse and one to the west. These two concrete roadways give access to a large area of concrete hardstanding, and the range of traditional farm buildings which are extensive. These have been well maintained and are principally of brick elevations under tiled roofs, interspersed with some more modern buildings. There is significant potential to convert the traditional buildings at Manor Farm, Briston, and a prospective purchaser is encouraged to make their own enquiries with North Norfolk District Council. There is a stand alone potato cold store, which can hold about 850 tonnes of potatoes in boxes. This is currently used as a box store and is about 4800 sq ft.

The arable land in Lot 1 is of the Wick Series and is all able to be irrigated via a ring main. The bore hole for lots 1, 2 and 3 is situated adjacent to Manor Farmhouse and the water is under an abstraction licence with an annual limit of 90,000 meters cubed per year, with more information available from the agent. The land has been cropped traditionally with oilseed rape, wheat, barley, sugar beet and potatoes forming the bulk of the rotation. There are no footpaths or third party rights of way over the land.
