Bessingham Manor New Build Manor House
Manor houses are often draughty, fuel guzzling piles which constantly require urgent repair works and Bessingham Manor in North Norfolk is one such manor house which has seen better days. It was built in the late 1870s by the Spurrel family who lived there until 1952, when they could not afford the upkeep of what was an already crumbling building. Since then it has deteriorated with the top two floors now having collapsed in on themselves.

In fact, Bessingham Manor is now in such a bad way that permission has actually been given to knock it down and replace it with a twenty first century version of the original - a minor miracle in North Norfolk where architectural heritage is fiercely protected.

The local planning department has placed some stipulations on the on the scheme; all the facing brickwork must be reclaimed from the existing house and traditional construction methods used.

This offers the ultimate in self build opportunities to create a 930sqm house of mature appearance from the outside with all the energy efficient technology that modern properties benefit from.

Set in four and a half acres of landscaped grounds, this is an exceptional opportunity to own the grandest of grand designs. Norwood Developments are there to assist you, if required, from project management to full turn key construction of the house and various options are available to prospective purchasers.

The perfect opportunity to not only be to the manor born - you can actually be present at the birth!
