The village of Whittington lies on the A134 as the road enters West Norfolk approximately 6 miles East of Downham Market and 15 miles West from Thetford, one of the main routes into this relatively unspoiled part of Norfolk. Brandon lies approximately 10 miles to the south. All of these locations benefit from large schools,main line train stations,supermarkets,libraries,sports facilities etc.
The site itself comprises a large Mill building that dates back to the early 1800’s and a significant area that previously housed working buildings that supported the industrial process that were taking place alongside the mill building.
The site benefits from a planning permission that comprises of 9 no new homes within the footprint of the Old Mill itself...retaining the road side historic elevation with all it's character features. To the rear of the site sheltered from the main road are 10 no new homes predominantly 3 bed roomed which are well under construction and will be released for sale in June 2017.
Construction of this element / phase of the project is due to commence during mid 2017.
The first phase of this exiting project which commenced on site during early 2016 comprises the new build of 8 No three bedroomed terraced homes and the rebuild of two subservient old industrial buildings, comprising of 2 and 3 bedrooms respectively. All of these homes will again be presented to the market with fully fitted kitchens complete with appliances, carpets and tiling.
Construction of this element of the scheme is very well progressed and will be released to the open market during the spring of 2017.
The completed project will significantly enhance this small West Norfolk village whilst providing a range of new homes from 2 to 5 beds in an excellent location with secure gardens complete ready for families, couples, individuals to move into and live their lives from. Whittington Mill is the largest scheme undertaken by EAM and upon completion will be one that EAM has delivered and can illustrate as the standard to which it aspires.
