Norfolk course on sale for £2million

11.00am 28th March 2007 - Property

Strutt & Parker’s Leisure & Hotels Department is instructed to sell the freehold of Costessey Park Golf Course, a well established course laid out in Costessey Park on the edge of Norwich.

Comprising 100 acres of picturesque parkland the 5,881 yards, 18-hole, par-71 course at Costessey Park Golf Club lies in the contoured Tud river valley, providing players with a number of holes that bring the river and man-made lakes into play. The owners, the LJ Group, have carried our several improvements to both the golf course and other facilities.

The ruins of Costessey Hall, a Tudor building, part demolished in the early 20th Century, stand in the middle of the course and form an interesting feature. The old dower house, Costessey Park House, a six bedroom house originally built in the 17th Century, is included in the sale together with its outbuildings.

The buyer will have the opportunity of restoring this south facing house which has been unoccupied for some years or, alternatively, re-negotiating the planning consent for re-development of the house and barns, with additional new build, for around 25,000 sq.ft. of offices, IT and research space.

Charles Greville-Heygate, the partner handling the sale, said, “We are expecting strong interest due to its excellent location and wide range of opportunities that exist in addition to the operation of the golf course”.

The guide price is £2,000,000.
