An extensive range of historic traditional buildings in a picturesque Broadland location with consent for conversion to 4 residential units in a site of 0.48 hectares (1.19 acres).
The buildings at Ludham Hall Farm comprise an extensive range of traditional barns overlooking the Broadland landscape.
The sensitively designed development scheme allows for the conversion of the range into 4 residential units with a total gross internal area of residential accommodation of in excess of 10,700sqft together with an additional area of garages and stores of 2,000sqft.
The site has an abundance of history with the building range being located opposite the 16th Century, Grade II* Listed, Ludham Hall. The land at Ludham was part of the Estate of the Abbey of St Benet's and the Hall became a residence for the Bishop of Norwich and known as 'The Bishop's Palace'. The Abbey at St Benet's is just over a mile to the south, accessed via public rights of way, and is one of the most famous landmarks of The Broads.
At the centre of the range is the principal and oldest barn, being an imposing early 18th Century Grade II listed building. Its impressive elevations include attractive features of honeycomb brick vents, stepped buttresses and two sets of double doors.
Thought to originally have had a thatched roof, the barn has developed over time to have a corrugated fibre cement sheeting roof which is to be replaced with pantiles under the development scheme. On the barn's eastern elevation is a modern general-purpose farm building which is to be demolished under the conversion scheme along with other modern additions to the range.
Beyond the Listed barn are the later brick-built buildings, the majority of which have pan-tile roofs. These include a set of buildings forming an attractive courtyard as well as open fronted cart shed at the northern end of the site.
