Unique restoration opportunity in Thetford, Norfolk

William H Brown land department are offering a unique restoration opportunity in the shape of a former coffee mill in Thetford, Norfolk. 

“The Old Coffee Mill” – a Grade II listed building set on the banks of the River Thet - is steeped in history offering many charming characteristics.  Formerly owned by the IBEX coffee company and latterly the famous tea manufacturers R Twining and Co., this historic building represents a fantastic investment opportunity with proposed plans for either five apartments with adjacent two storey ‘wings’ which could become independent residences or, alternatively, a substantial family home subject to planning.

The property, which is in need of complete renovation, is set over three floors with a variety of rooms and a ‘main building’ comprising a bar, catering kitchen and toilets.  Offering fantastic river views, “The Old Coffee Mill” is within close proximity to Thetford’s bustling town centre.

William H Brown Land Negotiator, James Rogers believes this property is great value for developers and restoration enthusiasts alike looking for a long term project: ‘“The Old Coffee Mill” is a wonderful space and a property developer’s dream, especially being in the Breckland area where we have experienced great success selling land in the local region” says James.  “There is so much scope to transform this building into a beautiful home that a family could really enjoy living in, or alternatively a range of apartments representing a great investment opportunity.”

“The Old Coffee Mill” in Thetford is well located with good road links to the university city of Cambridge and the flourishing city of Norwich with its rail links to London.  Nearby, Thetford forest is perfect for rural escapism and the Norfolk coastal town of Cromer is within an hour's drive away. Thetford itself offers walks along the picturesque riverside of the River Thet, from which the town takes its name. Thetford's town centre has recently undergone a regeneration project with the addition of a new three screen cinema, hotel and other leisure amenities.

“The Old Coffee Mill” is on the market for £350,000.   For further information, please contact the William H Brown Land & New Homes department on 01362 699999 or email LNHdereham@williamhbrown.co.uk
